Every time I see folks promoting a constitutional amendment to fix something...

I cringe.

It is a tool at our disposal, true. But it's a very cumbersome one. It takes years to get these things through the Congress, and then voted on by every state legislature.

Look at what happened to the ERA. It got through the Congress all right, and then bogged down later. It has never been ratified.

I really think there has to be a better way to legislate our difficulties.

Your thoughts?
