WANT TO RESTORE THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC??: I got this...lend me your ears...
1. A Constitutional Amendment setting strict LOW limits for donations/expenditures for every elective office. This Amendment should also BAN electronic voting machines, and require a paper ballot with receipts and a clear paper trail. It should also ban PACs

2. A Constitutional Amendment banning members of secret societies from running for elective office. Clear definitions would need to be worked up for what constitutes "secret" but I would suggest that they be quite broad and rigid, and certainly include any organization calling for world government. This amendment would also set up some form of "dual loyalist" prohibition so that people whose allegiances are split between the U.S. and any foreign nation (or entity-- like the U.N.) would not be eligible for political office.

3. A Constitutional Amendment requiring a basic civics test be administered to anyone seeking to vote. This could be done prior to voting at the next election for any nationwide office. The test could be short, IN ENGLISH ONLY, and would need to have many, many variations and be QUICKLY CORRECTED/CORRECTABLE ON THE SPOT.

A Constitutional Convention (being pushed by bogus "conservative" groups like The Heritage Foundation) would lead to a runaway re-write.

I can't poke any holes in your list. I would also add on that penalties for Treason and Sedition are much more intense. Death doesn't seem to be getting the point across these days. I would also suggest that there are more than one Sgt. At Arms so as to help prevent corruption in that office. Perhaps one per every 10 members of congress or some such thing. They would provide oversight of Congress to ensure no seditious or treasonous actions are being undertaken. They would report to the president AND the Judiciary so as to retain the balance of powers and prevent corruption.

Just a big pipe dream at this point though. We are going to have to fight them before we can do anything meaningful.

We haven't had an amendment since the 70s, and that was a foolish one. We need to make voting TOUGHER AND MORE RESPONSIBLE TO THE FOUNDING PRINCIPLES. Modern 18-year-olds are NOT ready for responsible voting.

We may need to also consider disallowing LONG TERM WELFARE RECIPIENTS, as well.

OOps...that was the XXVIth I was referring to. The XXVIIth is even less consequential (from the 90s).

Property is paramount to freedom your labor was untaxed before you get a SSN#.

Most are sold into slavery at birth by parents who in reality could care less.

Things get more restrictive the more government forms and licenses you sign.

Ignorance of rights and ability to defend them as a pro-se litigant is virtually opposite of the founders intended path.

A republic if you can keep it.

The Errant Sovereign's Handbook lay out some sobering ideas on where we are heading.

Ps
Voting in democracy is treason to the republic.
