Virginia may be on to something...

According to Rebellion, Virginia's top three elected officials have shown support for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow a decision by two-thirds of state legislatures to override federal law.

The movement for the so-called "Repeal Amendment" could gather momentum next year, as state legislatures that shifted from blue to red after the November elections begin their deliberations....

Now this is one way we could restore our freedom and preserve the Union! Question is, will Congress have the guts to present it to the states? (I know the Article V convention is technically an alternative, but it is a dangerous one).

Repealing the 17th amendment, putting the Senate back in the employ of the several states, would get this done.

@Radomes: I agree. Think we can talk Congress into introducing the amendment?
