Who has submitted amendments to the House or Senate?

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.

i do not want a Constitutional Convention.

We have spent 30 years trying to deal with RINOs across the nation implementing all sorts of whacked out stuff.

I think you are kidding yourself if you think nothing bad crafted could possible be implemented.

Look at the grief Trump is getting from Republicans for some of his plans.

Honestly, I DO NOT trust the Republicans either.

Am I glad our state houses are lop-sidedly Republican? Sure. Does that convince me Conservatism would prevail? No.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen a Republican say, “reasoned gun control”.

So no, I don’t want to open things up for review.
