Our Constitution needs a fix. But it will be a hard one [View all]

Never again can a maniac get to be president. Trump has shown us that.

Amending the Constitution is difficult, yet someway, somehow, we must add an amendment that a crazy person can't get to be president.

The 25th Amendment was an attempt to do this. It provided that the Cabinet and the VP could declare him/her unfit. Good luck with that. Given the lackeys Trump has appointed, they would sit in a meeting and praise his farts.

Nonetheless, the need to amend the Constitution is obvious. However, the country is so divided, this would seem like an impossible task today.

The Republican Party would like to see an amendment that puts them in power forever and a pro-business leader who would destroy democracy.

The Democratic Party would like to see an amendment that returns sanity to our broken political system.

Given this divide, nothing will happen.

The answer is that the Republican Party, which has evolved into a criminal/fascist organization over the past four or five decades, has to go. The Republicans who have deserted them represent the core of a party in exile. And they must, somehow, be returned to power.

Why? Because a country with a one party system quickly becomes a dictatorship. A sane opposition party is an absolute necessity.

So here's the dilemma. A sane Republican Party is needed, and a Constitutional Amendment is needed that stops this horror from ever happening again.

How do we get there? I don't have a fucking clue. But the start is to win the presidency and the entire congress in 2020. And then, never forget what is needed to fix the government.

Some brilliant men formed this government over 200 years ago. We now need some brilliant women and men to repair it and let it function from here on forward.
