The Top 5 Best Ideas for Constitutional Amendments

by Brian Nichols

It’s Constitution Day, which means it’s yet another day for America to celebrate the best darn document a government has ever been based upon. But with that being said, the Constitution is not perfect, and it could definitely use some improvements.

So, without further ado… these are the top 5 best ideas for Constitutional Amendments.

1. Repeal the 16th Amendment (Income Tax)

I don’t have to say it, but I’m gonna say it anyways: Taxation is Theft. Okay, now that I got that out of the way, let’s really look at the 16th Amendment. The entire premise that someone should be taxed based on what they earn is not only completely backwards, but is a means to dis-incentivize an individual from working to earn a living. Instead, it would be much more effective to tax consumption, or perhaps, a flat or fair tax, as that would tax what a person spends or consumes versus what a person earns.
