New Constitutional Amendment May Be Rushed Through Before Election

A new constitutional amendment is being proposed that could fundamentally alter how most of the other 27 amendments are understood - forever.

The so-called 'Right To Be Wrong' amendment would look to provide a definition of free will, which some say the founding fathers so took for granted, that they never bothered to mention it specifically.

"The founders were Deists, agnostics, Christians. Regardless, they all read the bible and the philosophical texts of the time, and talked about free will versus Determinism, which is the opposite of free will. One thing they could all agree on was that, if there were such things as right and wrong, whether someone was free to choose their actions or was destined to by fate, their fundamental right to act could not be impeded. Whether what they did could be called right or wrong was immaterial.

"We see this not just in the first amendment, which protects speech, the press, and your religion, no matter how much the government or anyone else thinks it's 'wrong', and the third amendment, which allows people to not 'support the troops' by housing them against their will, which some might consider wrong or at least unpatriotic. And number nine protects any specific right not stated, imagined or unimagined, including, most certainly, the right to exercise one's free will, their right to be wrong OR right, basically just their right to choose."

The group is looking to start both an online petition as well as a grassroots effort to get signatures supporting the 'Right to be Wrong' amendment.

A 'Right to be Wrong' day is also being planned for the spring of 2013, either in support of, or in celebration of, the passage of the amendment.

We do NOT need any more Constitutional amendments

This 'Right to be Wrong' stuff is already protected under the First Amendment.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

You know that, I know that, the founders knew that,

but Americans in general don't know it, so they need to be informed of this somehow. How better than to amend the constitution again again again.

Besides, if people end up not liking it we can always give it the 13th amendment treatment...

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

I don't need a daym

amendment to tell me I have a right to be wrong. This is foolish imo. If we have any more amendments, it should be amendments to repeal other disastrous amendments.
