I love it when you change the subject when you can't come up with a response Carol but I'll answer you.
1. No. We've tried that before. It was called the Articles of Confederation which proved totally unworkable. During the Civil War the Confederacy tried it again and once again it failed.
2. No. We already have that. It's called elections. If my Congressman and Senators are doing a good job then why would I want to replace them? The Republicans always put term limits in their platforms but once in office forget all about them.
3. While I'd love to see Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia be put out to pasture, again no. That would require amending the Constitution which is time consuming and expensive. It would likely fail and be a total waste of tax dollars.
Anything else Carol?
So, in other words, you're okay with the status quo of career politicians, politically motivated Supreme Court judges and the dissolution of Social Security and Medicaid in a few more decades.

You're basically against any reforms that would limit the size and scope of the federal government and reform programs that are leading us into certain bankruptcy.

You're perfectly happy with a powerful central government who regulates and dictates and takes the power from the people.

Do I have that right?

Barack Obama:
~Makes empty threats with invisible red lines.
~Makes empty promises with no intention to keep.
~Desires a welfare state and a powerful central government.
~Desires a one-party system.
~Perpetually leads from behind.
~Creates a part-time employment epidemic to promote his vision of single-payer.
~Surrounds himself with corrupt Chicago advisors.
~Intentionally creates divisiveness among the people.
~Favors the enemies of Israel over Israel.
~Allows abuses of power by powerful agencies by holding no one accountable.
~Stonewalls investigations to cover up incompetency and abuses of power.
~Declares unresolved and disturbing controversies as phony.

This is not the right man to lead our country.

Not one liberal could defend the above truthfully.

GOP Candidate Sentenced for Felony Fraud After Changing Party Affiliation of 300 Democratic Voters, Casting Absentee Ballots in Their Name

With these 300 fraudulent votes created by one Republican candidate alone, that's 300 more fraudulent votes than have ever been created by ACORN or anybody who has ever worked for them.

But, of course, you're unlikely to hear that, or even this story itself, from the tenacious Fox "News" "voter fraud special investigative unit" or the GOP clowns who help them disinform American voters.

List of Your Opinions ;-)

Amusing and partisan.

You seem to dislike President Obama for a person pretending to lead Black Americans "to a home in the Republican Party"?

As long as you and other die-hard liberals keep living in the past, we won't have a future.

Republicans have been waiting for Democrats to get on board to implement plans and solutions for major reforms and willing to compromise.

The past is no longer working. The only ones who don't seem to know that are Democrats. They don't like upsetting the apple cart.

Problem is the apples are rotting.

seems to me it speaks more to the state of conservative families.
but when you live in a FOX fantasy world and your kids have been living it vicariously, they're just not capable of dealing with the real world. so.....i'm paying taxes so grown kids can sit at home and play video games where the main theme reinforces their 2nd amendment rights.
Oh child. If only all of America's children could live in a fantasy world.

Unfortunately, in many predominately Democrat areas kids of all ages and adults sit at home and don't have to play video games to experience guns both indoors through bullets being shot through walls and in hallways or outside in the street day or night.

But you'd love to take away 2nd amendment rights for those who don't commit crimes with the guns and keep families in poverty so they'll continue to vote for the ones who let them sit home and not work.

Wouldn't you, Son?
