    Get in touch with your state representatives and have them call a constitutional convention. Each state can propose a constitutional amendment. The amendment should state that any law passed applies to congress too. Make it where congress cannot exempt themselves from the laws and they will stop passing such idiotic laws. You can put more pressure on your local state reps than you can congress. Start the process and see how fast congress begins to change.

    Do you even understand how a Constitutional Convention works?

    When a Constitutional Convention is authorized by the states, it results in the present Constitution and the Bill of Rights being NULL AND VOID. It's purpose is to write a new Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Given the partisanship in this country, and the leftist shift, do you think the new Constitution will have all of the protections and rights of the present Constitution? And just what will be added to it?

    The last time this came up was over the "amendment" to have term limits on congress. Except that this process was hijacked into an authorization for a Constitutional Convention. That's why a lot of people worked to kill term limits then.

    If you want term limits on congress, it needs to be done as an Amendment, not as a Constitutional Convention.
