Back in the mid to late '60's a group in Santa Barbara, California, the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions drafted a new U.S. Constitution. It is an excellent window into the elitist/liberal mind. The thing that struck me first is how detailed this document is compared to our original. It shows how completely they want to control your everyday existence.

A copy of the document is here:

This is an outline of the "highlights"

http://www.maebrussell.com/Articles%20and%20Notes/New%20Constitution.html

Rex Tugwell, former member of Roosevelt's "brain trust."
Robert M. Hutchins, chairman.
Harry S. Ashmore, senior Fellow of the center.
Warren Berger (opposed to trial by jury).
This new version:

20 or less "republics" instead of 50 states.
a stronger Presidency and federal powers, instead of individual sovereign states.
6 branches instead of 3.
- the regulatory branch would share its authority with private industry, could join multi-company groups to set standards.
No more Supreme Court, weaker judicial powers.
President serves 1 nine year term only.
Senators
- not elected but chosen by other branches of government. They would consist of former Presidents and other former high officials.
2 Vice Presidents instead of 1.
- 1 for general affairs.
- 1 for internal affairs.
No more Bill of Rights, but many of the same fundamental safeguards.
- no right to a trial by jury.
- no right to bear arms.
Instead of 2/3 vote of Congress to amend the Constitution, amendments would be proposed by a council of judges approved by the President and Senate, and ratified by a majority in a national election.
After 5 presidential terms the entire Constitution may be rewritten and submitted and ratified by a majority in a national election.

Throw in a few hundred pages of regulations of agricultural products and a ban on English measurements and you've basically got the European Union there.

And we see how well that's working out.
