Anytime there is any constitutional amendment proposed the first thing everyone needs to think about is basic. As Constitution Scholar Gary Alder says, “When you change your constitution you are altering your form of government.” He further states, “I can’t help but think that when amendments are proposed as readily hastily as they are these days without regard to the ramifications of those changes, it is like two doctors arguing that their method of performing a complicated operation is best—one because it takes less time and the other because it leaves a smaller scar—rather than sitting down together and discussing the interrelationship between the circulatory and respiratory systems and how the proposed operation can be performed without damaging either system. NO AMENDMENT SHOULD EVER be HASTILY DRAFTED or ONLY SUPERFICIALLY EXAMINED.”
