"Restore our Constitution", they say. Well, here are 29 ideas.

I keep hearing Tea Partiers who want to "reclaim the U.S. Constitution". So far, I've seen attempts to the contrary: candidates from the Tea Party advocate the repeal of key Amendments to the U.S. Constitution that are at least 60 years old, but well.

Anyway, there are 29 recent modifications to State Constitutions that I'd like to see gone, if they don't mind:

  • Alabama Amendment 774 (2006)
  • Alaska Ballot Measure 2, Joint Resolution 42 (1998)
  • Arizona Proposition 102 (2008)
  • Arkansas Constitutional Amendment 3 (2004)
  • California Proposition 8 (2008)
  • Colorado Amendment 43 (2006)
  • Florida Amendment 2 (2008)
  • Georgia Constitutional Amendment 1 (2004)
  • Idaho Amendment 2 (2006)
  • Kansas Proposed Amendment 1 (2005)
  • Kentucky Constitutional Amendment 1 (2004)
  • Louisiana Constitutional Amendment 1 (2004)
  • Michigan State Proposal - 04-2 (2004)
  • Mississipi Amendment 1 (2004)
  • Missouri Constitutional Amendment 2 (2004)
  • Montana Initiative 96 (2004)
  • Nebraska Initiative Measure 416 (2000)
  • Nevada Question No. 2 (2000 & 2002)
  • North Dakota Constitutional Measure 1 (2004)
  • Ohio State Issue 1 (2004)
  • Oklahoma State Question 711 (2004)
  • Oregon Ballot Measure 36 (2004)
  • South Carolina Amendment 1 (2004)
  • South Dakota Amendment C (2006)
  • Tennessee Amendment 1 (2006)
  • Texas Proposition 2 (2005)
  • Utah Constitutinal Amendment 3 (2004)
  • Virginia's Marshall-Newman Amendment (2006)
  • Wisconsin Referendum 1 (2006)

If they're willing to see these gone, then I'm all ears. Otherwise, I'll just call it hypocrisy.
