Ok, agreed, then the first step in accomplishing that must be to get conservative majorities in 3/4 of the state legislatures, correct?

Our system of government was designed to keep all politics local..... your vote for your state representative mattered, because this was the person that would send a senator to washington to represent your state’s interests.....the number of votes needed to appoint a senator varies from state to state... at the time of ratification some states used simple majority, others did not. What people fail to realize is that the house of representatives is the peoples house, and the senate was meant to be the states house. The senate is now the political parties house, kinda like the old soviet union.
