At this point in time, a constitutional amendment would be an exercise in futility.
Not a single branch of government follows the Constitution. The Supreme Court has taken on the role of amending the Constitution.

I did not advocate a constitutional amendment.
Someone was asking a question pertaining to one, and I answered it.
I’m advocating state rebellion.

"The Supreme Court has taken on the role of amending the Constitution."
They've been doing that since Roosevelt or before, what they did Thursday was re-write the law Congress passed and then passed that revision by judicial fiat. They didnt' just "amend" the Constitution, they ripped it to shreds by arrogating the legislative powers of Congress for themselves, effectively eliminating the separation of powers and establishing themselves as an oligarchy superior to the other branches.
As I have stated previously, The United States of America as imagined and bequeathed us by our Founding Fathers, is no more. Thursday was its death knell.
The only question remaining is whether we will follow the path of rapid decline into the strident socialism of Castro's Cuba and Chavez's Venezuela or the slow decadent slide into the socialism of Europe.
So far, with the type of radicals America has grown, Cuba is looking more likely.
