I fully support a legislative reboot:

I'd also add that for simplicity's sake it would make sense to simply adopt the current US legislative situation, like we did back in 2004. It might be fun to have people argue about Obamacare.
Maybe parts of it, like non-controversial issues, then we argue on the controversial ones. (AKA A.C.A.)

This is a really bad idea. For one thing the separating of controversial bills from non controversial ones will take ages, for another it would lead a massive gap in, say, healthcare policy as no one would know what the current status was, for another you can hardly say we are the US in 2015 but that certain bills didn't pass because that diverges the timeline from 2004 and finally it's precisely the controversial laws which we'd want to have on the books as those are the ones that would provoke debate by amending or repealing.

I move for a principle vote one wiping all current regional and federal laws and replacing them with the US laws up until the moment the constitution goes live.

How can we wipe all laws and replace them with US laws until the point of reset? This convention isn't binding until it is in terms of affecting change, right? Wouldn't the Senate have to do such a thing, or am I misunderstanding what is being stated here?

I think, similar to the last constitution, the plan is just to insert a line saying something to the effect that all previous laws are repealed and so on.

Anyway, given it's been like 4 days can we have the principle vote now?

Should all laws passed by the Senate since 2004 be repealed?
[X] Yes
[  ] No
[  ] Abstain


Should all laws passed by the Regions since 2004 be repealed?
[X] Yes
[  ] No
[  ] Abstain


What should be the basis of the new Statute?
[  ] We should revert to the status quo as of February, 2004
[X] We should use the current US statute (up to the date of ratification)
[  ] All laws, including pre-2004 legislation, should be repealed
