Thanks Lucy.

Note: Every last US Senator is bought and paid for. There is not one that isn’t controlled by a group of powerful individuals.

It may seem irrelevant but there is a way to break up this club of bastards in the US Senate. Mark Levin is a board member of an organization called the Convention of States which is using Article V to amend the Constitution.

And don’t get on a stupid soapbox about the Left taking it over! It’s not going to happen. The number of conservative state legislatures signed up already for an Article V process is already enough to bury any leftist attempt to subvert the process. If they could do it, they would already have done it. They can’t do it, but conservatives can!

So think about this:

AMENDMENT XXVIII (’Federal-State Rebalancing’)

To restore the foundational structure of State Legislatures to Congress, the following amendment is proposed:

Section 1. Senators in Congress shall be subject to recall by their respective state legislatures or by voter referendum in their respective states.

Section 2. Term limits for Senators in Congress shall be set by a vote in their respective state legislatures but in no case shall be set less than two full terms nor more than three full terms.

Section 3: The seventeenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.


The Article V Movement is making great strides in a conservative direction. The above is still down the road a ways but will come nevertheless. Don’t discount it! It’s our weapon!

This amendment proposal takes away the popular vote for US Senators which is a farce to begin with. But it replaces with a state or popular vote to FIRE a US Senator based on their performance. We can’t know a US Senator until they get in office and perform. They can smile, read scripts, have strategic photo ops, have professional handlers, etc. but still perform not how we want but how those that bought them want them to perform.

About the 5th year into their current term. their machines start cranking out propaganda and they start acting like they are working for us so they can get reelected. All of this is designed to confuse us. But in the first few years we can see their true colors by how they perform and we can throw them out. This can be summed up with the phrase “Don’t rely on their words, look at their fruit!”

One way to look at the 17th Amendment is that it allowed for powerbrokers to own the US Senate by buying enough Rs and Ds to either pass, block, or delay bills.

The above Amendment 28 sets the game back for powerbrokers making it so they need to buy state legislatures rather than individuals. That shifts the game of power to the local level where people can see more actively what’s going on.

In 1913, when the 17th Amendment was enacted, it had started at the grass roots level as an Article V process but was taken over by Congress and changed so that the US Senate could more easily be bought and owned by wealthy individuals. The 17th represents a weakening of our republican form of government just as an abolishment of the Electioral College would set back the republic perhaps permanently.

The 17th Amendment is just plain wrong. What Americans needed back then and what is needed now is an ability to throw out US Senators who betray their principles, turn on the people and warm to those luring them with money.

We need an amendment to FIRE our US Senators while letting our states HIRE them as it they did in the original Constitution.

Think about it. If you are a traitor and enemy to Americans and you want to control one of its most important governing bodies, which body do you choose? The answer is simple, the Presidency. But what if you lose a bid to install your guy as President, what do you do then? You buy the US Senate with only 50+ members. That’s a bargain.

But if you have to buy state legislatures instead of US Senate members, your effort to control is much more difficult because state legislators are very close to the American people. You’d be up against the American people, so you’d likely find other ways to subvert the process.
