    I'm ready to make it unconstitutional to do any polls about elections. Outlaw all election polls but the election itself.

    Let's eliminate any way to know who's winning the 'horse race' and stop distracting ourselves from the candidates and issues.

    The only taxes the Constitution has ever required to be apportioned are direct taxes, which are limited to capitations and property taxes. Repealing the 16th won't help, since the taxing authority comes from I.8.1.
    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."

    Amend. 16th is perfectly fine just they way it is at present. It is only that its intended context has been misstated by many decades of continued IRS propaganda--and a Congress filled with pedophiles and/or that are concerned islands under too much weight tip over and/or who believe Mars is closer to the Sun than our Earth.

    Abolishing the IRS certainly would help in setting constitutional taxation back onto the correct path within America--Amend. 16 taxes income as a gain or profit (e.g., increase in personal or professional financial wealth), but not financial capital as an equal conversion, exchange, or quid pro quo.

    Nice, would only add that since America is a democracy, it should only require a quorum.

    Will this grand jury (whose members may have no legal training whatsoever) also decide whether the legislation was unconstitutional?

    Regardless of who decides that issue this smacks of the old system of common law crimes, under which someone could be punished for doing or failing to do something at a time when he could not possibly have known that his action or inaction was illegal. Not all constitutional issues are clear cut, and reasonable minds can differ on whether a particular piece of legislation is constitutional. No one in his right mind would ever agree to serve as a legislator under such a system. If a legislator introduces a bill to codify a state's law of defamation but neglects to include a different standard for public figures (see New York Times v. Sullivan), is he to be jailed?

    Incidentally, if the bill is never passed, who would ever have standing to complain that someone introduced it? You're getting very close to criminalizing thoughts.

    My thoughts:

    Seems pretty clear cut to me, grab a copy of the U.S. Constitution and determine the corresponding enumerated power; oh what is that cannot find one, then move for a commission to discuss the necessity of adding a new amendment to provide said enumerated power, otherwise consider the matter resolved.

    Libel and slander are matters for the states to contend with, not a federal matter, so it is outside the context of this discussion. In any case, the public figure exception was born in common law anyway; therefore, there is no reason why the same would not apply under this proposal.

    As to the bill never passing as stated in context of the proposal: "the severity of the punishment concordant with the severity of the offense"
