Yes, when we show we care and understand anywhere, official discretion is challenged to be as good as it can.
Here is an opportunity to lay some praise on courts, but then be sure to ask them to stand with the constitution when the issue is not so obvious, but perhaps even more important.
State legislators (no just courts) have a duty to the citizens to work in upholding the US constitution by advancing their need for amendment to the constitution to exert guidence and control over the federal government.
Well, congress has been violating their oaths, US law and the constitution for 100 years by refusing to convene states delegates for an Article V convention. Find out here about that.
And, what can be done about it.
Logically, if there has been a covert infiltration of the US government over the last 30 years, and congress's nonfeasance with Article V has been enabling it, then it is safe to assume that part of the design was to embed unconstitutional officials in state government that would work agains the state effort to gain an Article V, our first constitutional right.
BTW: The fears of runaway are nonsense if an effort is made by Americans to first understand Article V "all intents and purposes of this constitution" are the words to heed.
Before an Article V occurrs, the people of the nation need to be made more constitutional and ending the abridgment of free speech is the only thing that can do it.
Then campaign finance reform needs to happen.
Voting methods need to be secured.
With 3 amendments this can be done. Give America 6 months with actual free speech, which can be done equitably despite corporate control over national networks, and America will be ready to elect state delegates for a convention.
Then we will make a difference.
Can we stop doing all the things we are doing that we do not want to do while still doing what we need to do?
