Repeal the ban on dueling

There would be a whole lot less cheating, rumor mongering, and outright lying from and about political opponents, if the victim could issue a challenge to those who would slander. In period dress, of course. Run a few of these 'Chickenhawks' through with a rapier and I think that the general discourse between opponents would improve much to the better.
Alexander Hamilton would approve (Aaron Burr even moreso).

So would Zell Miller. Chris Matthews, not so much.

On a different note, I like that part about dueling. Now, where did I put my sword?

If I felt like looking for my old Blue Book I'd quote some of the now repealed Art 13 Sec 2.
