Then amend it. Liberals would have you believe the Constitution must be scrapped because it is outdated. Well, if that is true, then amend it legally.

You remove (repeal) an Amendment by passing another Amendment. The 21st Amendment repealed the 18th.

Which current Amendment(s) would you repeal?

I think the 17th because it took power from the States. The Founders wanted the People to represented by the House, and the States to be represented by the Senate. Now both are popularly elected and the States have lost their voice in Congress. We see alot of intrusion on the States by Washington and we already fought a war over that.

I would repeal the Income Tax too and replace it with a consumption tax instead of an income tax. The rich will certainly pay their fair share when they buy Rolls Royces and private jets, and the poor will certainly pay less because they buy cheaper stuff. We punish achievement and encourage more poverty and dependence on the public treasury when we tax income instead of spending, I think.

Those who don't pay any taxes shouldn't have a say in how tax money is spent, because inevitably they'll vote themselves money from the public till until it's all spent on "entitlements" and none left for the primary functions of government: Defense of the People and their rights.

I'm still a kid with alot to learn, so I won't get mad if I'm proved wrong by some well-informed adults.
