    With the GOP recently in control and passed on repealing and replacing Obamacare, something they ran on doing, and spending like a drunken sailor, while funding things like Planned Parenthood but not the wall, what are we left with?

    We are left with a one party system called the Swamp.

    So what to do? The Article V movement is the only way to reign in the power of the out of control Federal government. Getting 2/3 of the states may seem unattainable, and well may be, but what else is there other than watching the Republic circle the drain?

    At the bare minimum, states need to impose a balanced budget amendment on the US Congress with term limits on that same Congress.

    Both are supported by about 80% of the American people but will never be realized with the current political set up. Congress will not vote to surrender their power in any way. It is now up to the states to do so or it never gets done.

    There is no swamp.

    There will be no Article V convention. Once the hood is open on the Constitution anything can happen to the entire document. Nobody wants to risk that.

    Good to see the TEA party going the way of the USFL. Trump killed them both.

    Not just him millions say so.
    There are plenty of reports about them.

    First thing is they have to prove it.
    So far is just assumptions and innuendos.

    Prove what? It’s been proven; re: Sending another $12B to the already subsidized farmers
    ; largest portion of pork this year; to buy votes of people suffering from a trade war he started.

    And Kansas still elected a Girl Democrat as Governor.

    Let me guess. You have no problem with the $12B giveaway….do you?

    He said Mexico would be paying for the wall that many Republicans are hoping the Congress will fund. So he lied about that too.

    Let me guess. You have no problem with the lies…do you?

    Both of what I write above are proven facts. You know them. We all know them. The only thing is that you are willing to look the other way in the case of the blob…aren’t you?

    A simple yes or no will suffice.

    States get most of their money from federal taxes, so I don't see how the state's would do anything.
