    Michigan’s constitution allows for a rewrite every 16 years.  We have an opportunity to make revisions with a “con con” in 2026.  The last con con was in 1962-3.  Let’s start our list of revisions!

    Update:  it’s too easy to amend the constitution by a 51% vote of the electorate from an amendment proposal by petition.  It should be 66% or better!  We can wait for CONCON 2026 or propose an amendment sooner.  The repeal of Props 12&3 should happen first.

    Sorry I posted twice, although I have another thought!  The irony in the fact that the death penalty was abolished by amendment at the constitutional convention in 1962-3, while murder in the womb was added to the constitution in 2022-3.  Makes me weep!  I suggest repealing the death penalty so that dealers in fentanyl can be prosecuted for dealing in weapons of mass destruction.

    The three ballot proposals that passed in 2022 were loaded with un-American zingers and were so long that only a portion of the proposals actually appeared on the ballot. The Constitution should not be amended without the full proposal text appearing on the ballot. In other words, many people voted without knowing the full extent of the proposal.
