Response to Captain Zero (Original post)

8. It's all too easy to propose a Constitutional amendment.

However, it's extremely difficult to get one through Congress and ratified by enough states. That is a good thing, because most amendments that get proposed by lay people are not worthy of being included as part of the US Constitution. In fact, most of the ones I see have the potential for being very harmful when the party we prefer is not in power.

Fortunately, such proposals never become amendments, thank goodness.
