Do you want to see liberal heads explode? Republicans have won so much control in the last few years that they are very close to being able to amend the U.S. Constitution. Democrats wouldn’t be able to do anything about it. If this happened, it would make the left’s post-election meltdown look like a church picnic.
The Associated Press reported:
Republican success opens door to amending US Constitution
The November election put Republicans in full control of a record number of state legislatures around the country, a level of power that gives the party an unprecedented opportunity: change the U.S. Constitution.
Republicans already control Congress, the White House and more governors’ offices than they have in nearly a century. But it’s the state legislatures that hold perhaps the greatest promise for lasting change.
The GOP now holds numerical majorities in 33 legislatures, one shy of the two-thirds required to initiate a convention on constitutional amendments. There is no credible talk of using that power for amendments on hot-button social issues, such as banning abortion or gay marriage. But conservatives have a list of bread-and-butter governing issues they would like to see enshrined in the Constitution.
One, to require a balanced federal budget, is already approaching the level of support that would trigger a convention. Beyond that, a major state-level push is planned during 2017 for a constitutional convention that could also consider amendments to impose term limits on members of Congress and rein in various federal powers.
President-elect Donald Trump has pledged support for an amendment on congressional term limits.
The 2018 election is right around the corner.
If the GOP makes more gains in that election, this could actually happen.
