I appreciate the reasoned arguments.

I’ve seen them before.

Who has submitted amendments to the House or Senate?

We have the majority.

Crickets...

I don’t know.

What would be the point? Is a senator going to move a resolution to the floor limiting the terms a senator can serve or repealing 17th amendment providing popular election of senators?

The amendments needed to restore limited government would be opposed by Republicans as well as Democrats; At least enough Republicans to prevent passage.

Just look at a simple thing like auditing the Federal Reserve has not moved through congress because it challenges the power structure in Washington DC.

I don’t understand the fear of a Convention of the States. ¾ of the states have to approve. I don’t see anything radical being approved at this point in history with conservative legislatures in the majority of the states.

The US congress is not going to present amendments curtailing their own jobs and powers. Those crickets are exactly the reason the states are trying to organize UNDER THE CONSTITUTION to present Amendments per their RIGHT under the Constitution. We have an alternative to Congress. Let’s use it!
