Best Answer

1. An amendment prohibiting the burning or desecration of the flag.

2. An amendment prohibiting abortions except in cases of rape, incest or danger to mother's life.

3. An amendment prohibiting marriage between people of the same sex.

4. An amendment letting naturalized citizens be President. (the Arnold amendment)

Those were off the top of my head. A quick Google search revealed dozens, even scores more, all actually proposed in Congress, all failing, all in the last ten years or so. Everything from guaranteed housing to praying in school.

Obviously many Americans think many issues are worth an amendment. Some, like a mandated balanced budget or re-establishing the filibuster or direct vote of the President, might be good.

Others, like awarding 5th and 14th amendment rights to the unborn would be difficult and divisive. Whether one is pro-choice or pro-life, having a woman die giving birth to a deformed child of incestuous rape would seem a bit harsh.

And the one where the minimum age of Congress would be lowered to 21 - wow, just when they can drink for the first time, they can lead us!
