I gathered that you were interested in seeing the vote split up into
multiple votes on every single section because you weren't happy with
the amendment in total rather than inviting a discussion on the
perceived issue(s) with different section(s) of the amendment.

Why not start a discussion dealing with the actual issue(s) then?

If there are sections which you don't particularly like, bring them up
for discussion.

Then if you find people who feel likewise, propose an amendment, get
it seconded by the people who feel likewise, and vote for it when it
appears on the ballot.

I, for one, look forward to hearing what you have to say.

on it--and is just as likely to succeed.
