No, ratification by state is still part of the amendment process. They are full of it, as usual. They are acting like 5 year old's at a seafood restaurant who would rather have tacos or pizza.

I don’t like to see Republicans attacking other Republicans.” Read more: www.politico.com...


I have a problem with this statement. This is the main problem with our party system. Elected officials can't voice their own opinions if they conflict with their own parties philosophy or goal. This is why you have stalemates in our system.

Both sides shouldn't be forcing their party members to lock step in unison. This is why we get elected officials who talk like programmed robots instead of feeling free to voice their own opinions. How can we have open and honest discussions when we have strong armed tactics to keep their party members in line.

If the American system of governing is supposed to reflect the will of the people, this is far from it. It's more like a dictatorship from a majority of the few instead of a majority of the whole.

Tea party does not really belong in the Republican Caucus. Boehner wont give them up though because that would put the democrats back in charg of the house. Tea Party should stand on its own rather than fall in with the republicans. 3 Parties now just one of them hiding under the guise of being republican.
