Hate to break it to you…but the constitution has been changed before… 27 times to be exact (although the first 10 are what you would call The Bill of Rights). it took a change to the constitution to eliminate slavery and give those former slaves the same god-given right to vote that white men had. it took a change to the constitution to give women the right to vote. the constitution is a living document that the founders designed with the idea that we can change it to adapt to the world. they could not forsee everything that was going to happen in the world, so they gave us article 5 which lays out the amendment process. sorry to rain on your ”never change the document” parade with reality.

In a pure popular vote system, the Midwest would be completely ignored. Politicians would focus on the east and west coasts and perhaps Texas – the most populous states. They would visit the areas where they could speak to as many people as possible at once first and foremost. Most small states wouldn’t even be addressed. Spending time and money in Wisconsin wouldn’t be as effective as spending the same time and money in California. Rural needs would be ignored, due to a smaller number of people.

The most crucial and important amendment that needs to be added to the Constitution is the abolishment of money given to our politicians (congressmen/Senators) by Corporations. They ”buy” their vote by donating a tremendous amount of money to their campaign thus electing them. In other words, Corporations run our country. This leads to America being one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Just recently the Supreme Court voted to allow Corporations to donate as much money as they want to those creeps. Is that the America that we want?
