Amen 28

Let’s upgrade the USA to be more like England and India which have a “no-confidence option” The No-Confidence option (28th Amendment to U.S. Constitution) would have these features:

  • Three fourths of the U.S. Senate or three-fourths of the state legislatures could vote that they have no confidence in the current President and his or her successor. A Special Election would be held within 90 days. The Federal Election Commission shall maintain an ongoing registry of candidates to advertise the candidates and to prevent confusion due to duplicate names.
  • The Special Election and all future presidential elections shall be by the “Ranked Voting” method from among 10 choices. A mailed-in ballot shall be used to prevent computer-based fraud. The Electoral College is no longer to be used for electing a President.
  • A Special-Election President has the added power to review and to re-appoint new people in place of anyone appointed by the most recently elected President or his/her successor. New appointees must still be approved by Congress.
  • If the Special-Election President is sworn in within two years of the end of term of the existing President, then the Special Election President will remain in office for the next term as well, or in other words, the term shall be 6 years or less. That person could also be elected for a subsequent term of office to comply with presidential term limits.
