Physiqueflex saidI love it when people say they support and defend the constitution, then promote things like this,
"Among other things, Driscoll's (Convention of States Project) would like to establish term limits for members of Congress and Supreme Court justices, allow Congress to override unpopular Supreme Court rulings by a three-fifths vote..."
Under our constitution, any of those things, however improbable, are entirely possible using the amendment process. Article III, section 1 is in need of being rewritten, to deny federal judges at all levels the life tenure that some have come to abuse, whether willfully or thru the ageing process. As for overriding SCOTUS' unpopular decisions, that too is possible under our constitution, so there's nothing at all inconsistent with seeking those changes under that same constitution's amendment process. It's blurring the separation of powers and arrogating more powers unto himself, as Obama continues to do, that is a odds with the constitution, as SCOTUS will soon - and again - reconfirm. Just because you disagree w/ something doesn't mean it can't be done. Politics is, after all, "the art of the possible."
