If the Founding Fathers (same men, same morals) were writing the Constitution today, what amendment/s would they add?

They'd clarify the second and tenth because apparently people disregard it when it's written in 1700s lingo.

If they knew then what we know now, I suspect they'd have more specific about a few things: religious rights, speech rights, gun rights, State's rights, property rights, right to work/own business w/o Gov interference.

... Hopefully POTUS single 6-yr term; Congress no more than 12 yrs - total & *part-time* in DC; spend more time w/constituents & living under legislation passed; outlaw lobbists & "professional/political revolving door...

... Other things I can't think of right now... *definitely* that *Congress only* pass regulations/taxes/fees/etc - rather than unelected/corrupt bureaucrats!!!

Probably add something saying you're not allowed to sue for "emotional damages" unless actual damage was caused.

They would add amendments limiting the power of federal courts and expounding on the Tenth Amendment.

They would have added a DOMA, a Life at Conception/Prohibition of Abortion and Euthanasia Amendment, and an anti-amnesty, anti-Sanctuary City Amendment at the very least. They would also have removed the misleading militia clause from the 2nd Amdt.,

and clarified that the "Separation of Church and State" is intended to protect the Church, NOT the State. The free exercise of religion on public grounds IS Constitutional.

They'd clarify several of the existing amendments to eliminate the wandering interpretations of the court.

They clearly outlaw gay marriage and abortion, and clarify even more the 2nd amendment to show it is to protect the people from the gov't.
