Revision (16 October 2021)

Due to the length of several Amendments attached in the US Constitution almost rivaling that of the ‘1977 Soviet Amendments’ to aspects of the 1936 Soviet Constitution in the Soviet Union under Leonid Brezhnev, I have been forced to create another SMP Compendium entry. This is not a joke: the final portion of Part IV literally turned out to be about as long as Part IV itself because of the vague language employed by certain US Amendments.

Alexander Hamilton was right about the Bill of Rights all along in Federalist Paper No. 84: Is it really necessary to make any constitution so long and unreadable by Amendments to the point where nobody knows how to interpret their constitution, let alone know what their constitution is supposed to be as a legal document?

As I write this, I am currently rereading and proofreading the legal language in Part IV of Strategic Accounting and Allocation of the Federal Budget and the portion about the Greater America Amendment as discussed earlier today. The total word count of Part IV has nearly reached 15,000 words because of the 27 Amendments. For comparison purposes, there have been nearly 12,000 failed attempts to introduce Amendment XXVIII. Why are the Jeffersonians trying to make the US Constitution just as long as the 1977 Soviet Constitution, if not longer than that?

This is just the 27 Amendments and not the Constitution itself, my fellow Americans. If I had to include the Presidential Executive Orders and Directives, I am never going to complete the Compendium before this coming Monday.
