I think we have agreement on the destination- a true Constitutional Republic again, but vary on the means of forcing FEDGOV to respect the constitution. What I am trying to say is that, like in that old joke, "you can't get there from here, you have to go somewhere else and get there." We can't get to a constitutional Republic without getting the state officials on our side instead of the fed's side, without breaking the two-party duopoly, and without addressing the Federal Reserve. IOW we have to get power de-centralized as much as we can before tackling amending the constitution before we can have a reasonable expectation that such an amendment convention will do any good.
Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)
