Power Remains the Same

Adding more people to the lawmaking branch of our federal government risks putting more people in power who have no understanding of the constitution. QUOTE

The power of the House of Representatives is not increased by dividing it up and putting it into more hands.
The present membership understands the Constitution well enough to know it prohibits most of what they do. This is why they ignore it.
If reform is based on the idea, "if we just return to obeying the original meaning of the Constitution", there will be no reform. We need to deal with our world as it is, not as we wish it to be.
One reform at a time is difficult enough with attempting some quantum leap. As always, by doing one reform at a time we can attract allies who don't support the total agenda. Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" bill is a relevant example.
The bottom line is your vote is for the status quo.
