Here are some ideas for New US Constitutional Amendments. I am posting this to try to see if the ideas have any point or merit of any kind and to expand and develop the ideas even further. These are only Ideas, Notes, Descriptions, and comments. Think these ideas would work in some way or form or not? Anything to be improved on or changed in some way? Know of anything to expand and develop the ideas further? There has got to be some areas for some refining and polishing up some where. Please let me know what you think of the ideas, so far.


1> State Governors after a High Majority of them, all in agreement as one (like 40 or 45 or even more State Governors) given some temporary limited US Presidential Authorities/Powers (as one) on a issue by issue basis. [Examples: Executive Orders and Pardons]

2> Term Limits for US Congressional Senators and Representatives of a Maximum of 24 years. (Senators 4 terms, 24 years max) (Representatives 12 terms, 24 years max)

3> Balances and Limitations between Security, Privacy, and Liberty. (Too much Security would interfere with Privacy, and Liberty. Too much Liberty would cause Security to be of no effect or non-existent.)
"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both." - Benjamin Franklin [from refrigerator magnet]​
(“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” - Benjamin Franklin) [Memoirs of the life & writings of Benjamin Franklin - https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/privacy]

4> Dynamic & Innovative Public Education / Evolving Public Education - Requirement to continually update and change the Public Education System to the most Optimum utilizable and applicable for all 50 states and otherwise allowing each state to form their own education system standards. (The current system is based from ideas that are from over a hundred years ago, and they do not work very well. Some states have a hard time keeping up with other states in Education.) (Public Grade School)

5> Anti-Censorship - Always providing an option in some way, shape, form or some other variation to be able to access censored Information or Content. People can view or access if they want and not if they do not want view or access whatever would normally be censored. It is understood that it is necessary to have somethings censored from public view, but what about special options to access censored information and content securely on the internet or some other option; with Exceptions for Currently Active Law Enforcement Investigations and real National Security concerns, and maybe possibly others. (This would definitely be related to Art, Entertainment, and any publications.) (The 1st Amendment does help with preventing some censorship, but it does not go far enough. Whatever the 1st Amendment does not protect, is what this idea is for and involves.)

#1 would take away authority given to POTUS by the Constitution opening door for elimination of entire document. What event would necessitate this action?
#2 Term limits are already in place but not enforced by the will of the people. 2 years for House, 6 years for Senate. it was designed this way to keep from happening that which is happening. the people have the power, the people are the problem.
#3 Mr. Franklin said it all. As long as people will be afraid and not active then this is the result. Everyone has the right to be secure in person and property from unreasonable search and siezure already.
#4 We dont need to amend the Constitution to pass a law for education or some transient purpose. Amendments to the Constitution should be given the regard that they hold. they are more than just some political policy that we can throw around every 2 or 3 years
#5 the first amendment and the preamble to the Constitution covers the 'freedom of speach'. When you speak to other members of the public it should #1 form a more perfect union, #2establish justice,#3 insure domestic tranquility,#4 provide for the common defence,#5 PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE,#6SECURE THE BLESSING OF LIBERTY TO OURSELVES AND OUR POSTERITY
I am a firm believer that the Constitution needs no more amending but rather more adherence to it. But people have to read it first
