20. the sheer numbers needed to pass any admenment makes nearly impossible

 


2/3s of the House
2/3s of the Senate
3/4s of the States

we have to deal with reality, it will NOT happen, nor will term limits and all bunch of other constitutional base initiates. Conservatives will simply oppose any and all of them if democrats support them. Thats the world we live in now. The effort and energy has to go towards stuff WE CAN ACTUALLY CHANGE and right, now, at the Federal Level, their is ZERO, except symbolic votes in the House that will go nowhere in the Senate, no floor vote at all.

The only power democrats have is investigations and hearings in the house and perhaps some poison-pill riders on House appropriation Bills...thats it
