How many civil wars have we had in the last 150 years?

We have the power to change things.

Submit bills to change things.

Don’t complain having not tried.

We have clear majorities.

Bills being submitted to relinquish federal power to states or to establish term limits or control federal spending are not going to happen from the federal legislature. They WANT the power and control or they wouldn’t be there. More rights to states lessens the power of those very guys who would have to pass the legislation.

Yeah, there are a few good guys in office. But even the conservative legislators are there for the power. Can’t be avoided. Not enough self-sacrificing dudes to make it happen.

Why are you against using the Constitutional method laid out for the benefit of states? Honest question as I don’t understand.
