Republican/conservatives like to advocate for constitutional amendments that, at best, do little to advance society and might, if passed, hurt law abiding Americans. I refer to the proposed antiflag burning amendments and DOMA type nonsense.
I would like to propose a constitutional amendment to reform our electoral process so as to be beyond the reach of the Robert's SCOTUS. I would like to see the following:
No electioneering until the year of the election. No declaring of candidacy, no fund raising. (Yes, Iowa and New Hampshire might want to make adjustmnents)
All contributions to candidates must be from individuals and max out at $1000. (this could be indexed to inflation and adjusted every 10 years)
No issue ads within 30 days of an election. (If it's really an issue ad it shouldn't need to be close to an election)
All election money raised must be spent in that election cycle or donated to a nonprofit charity (no war chests).
Candidates and organizations running issue ads must disclose their funding sources.
Anything you'd like to see added? Any glaring problems in what I have proposed? Have at it; let's make this interactive.
