Democrats doing what they do best... fucking up all the shit... To then point the finger at someone else for fucking up all the shit... which they actually fucked up. Just writing this is making me feel retarded.

This will be a great way to get yourself forcibly removed from office.

So they want pure democracy? Aka pure evil aka mob rule? These people aren't even trying to hide the fact they are trying to destroy the country anymore.

Every reply here (even mine) simply feeds these trolls. This bill has zero (as in none, nada, zip) chance of passing. They just put it out there to take your mind off the real issues such as the disaster at the Mexico border, the Obamacare debacle, the Mueller attempt at a coup... The more attention this sort of garbage attracts, the more often you will see it appear. Sorry folks, that's how it works. You are flies attracted to dung.

What a monumental waste of time and effort. Our G.D. government can't even reach a consensus on what to have for lunch, and they're wasting their time with a G.D. Amendment??? Seriously??? Get back to work, dammit!

This all harkens back to ancient Rome when the common people were referred to as simply "the mob" instead of as individual citizens.

There is no way that this will pass, it is directly against the interests of 75% of the people who would be needed to pass it.
