    Indeed – fodder for the stump.

    This would require a Constitutional Convention.

    They would also be required to amend the Constitution to repeal amendments first, starting with the 14th. The unraveling of case law associated with the 14th alone would be a disaster.

    Before both republican and democrat progressives amended the constitution this was exactly the role of the Senate. To be the voice of the states. The House was the voice of the people/taxpayers. Now the states have no voice as the Senate is popularly elected instead of being elected by the state legislatures as they used to be. So now popular elections determin treaties, court justices, and the intulectual side of congress. This was what our founders EXPRESSLY tried to prevent. Legeslation with no say by the states.

    I wouldent say that. The Senate used to be elected by the the state legislatures before the constitution was amended in the progressive era. The founding fathers wanted the state to have a say in the federal government. Now they have no say. I take it as a fact that if the Senate was still elected by the states there would be no Obamacare today.

    Sorry all the viral sites were stealing the vid for themselves. They (as I expected) ripped it all off... That was the point....
