Transcription of the amendments...

...to the US constitution into modern language:



We claim the right to think and say what we want, and the means to enforce it. The government shall not come into our houses uninvited. If you don't like it, or don't like me, sue me, and you can bet your ass that I will have my say. You will not detain me for this purpose longer than it is your business to. If you want to sue me for something important, we're bringing other people into it, but not the government. If you win, you cannot be a dick about it.


Later...

You will not put my brothers in chains. My brothers being anybody with a passport.


Later...

Anybody that wants to have a position in our government must allow any of our brothers to have a say in it and swear to all this. If they stood against us in the past, they are out of luck.


Later...

All brothers must pay dues.


Later...

We will have a higher council of brothers.


Later...

Nobody can drink.


Later...

Whatever is good for our brothers is good for our sisters.


Later...

We will have a lower council of brothers.


Later...

We change our minds about the drinking.


Later...

Roosevelt was cool and all, but no more. Two terms only for our president.


Later...

We will have a council of brothers to decide who is president. It's basically going to be the brothers of the higher and lower councils plus one extra man for each.


Later...

Our brothers wil not be charged for their votes.


Later...

If our brother president should fall, his place will be taken by the next brother in the hierarchy until a new brother is elected.


Later...

Our brothers include anybody previously mentioned and over the age of 18.


Latr...

Our lower council of brothers will decide how much them and the higher council get paid.



It's also possible that there are important things we didn't think of, but we claim those too. Anything else is the problem of the appropriate jurisdiction.

The electoral college is complicated as a concept, but procedurally not a problem.
