Ideas for Amendments

This page will be where I collect any suggestions or ideas posted in the comments for Amendments to the Constitution.  At first, this will just be a list, and then as we get more, they will be classified by Topic and ranked by probability of success to be ratified.

 Term Limits Amendment - Received suggestion on Twitter that Senators should be limited to 8 years, like the President. This would require inclusion of a change in the term and election times of the Senators. Also, would be a situation where the entire government could change at the same election, never a good idea. Better to have overlap for continuity and some institutional memory. But worth the input. Thank you.

Term Limits Amendment - Suggestion from Facebook - Limit both houses to 12 years each and make retroactive, if they have already served 12 years they can't run again.
