What amendments do you currently think are advisable or necessary? I believe that there needs to be a process for withdrawal from the Union. Currently section X of Article I reads "No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation." That's well and good (for the federal government should conduct foreign policy), but why can't states leave? The EU has a similar quandary, and they've inserted an exit clause in the Lisbon Treaty, which may pass in the next year or so. As a federal republic, it makes sense that it should act more like a federation- a voluntary collection of states. = Sen. Feingold introduced a proposed amendment XXVIII, which would make special elections mandatory for senatorial vacancies. It seems that given how long senatorial terms are, people should be electing them. So you voted for a Democrat because you find him personally scrupulous and efficient, what's to say you want a Democrat in his place if he passes away? America doesn't operate on list representation- it values individual politicians, thus one Democrat or Republican is not equal to another one. What else?
