It was a good idea ...

For four and a half years in the 1780’s, the rogue State of Franklin existed along what became the Tennessee border with N. Carolina. An attempt was made to write a constitution but voters never ratified it.

Bit I like one provision:

They drafted a constitution that excluded lawyers, doctors and preachers as candidates for election to the legislature.

Let us try to get that enacted,along with time limitd on service by politicians and bureaucrats. We also need to prohibit the revolving door between politicians and regulators and the companies or industries they regulate or legislate for.

That would be a great start.
