As a left of center independent moderate, reading this article gives me a bit of hope.

About 85% of Americans would agree.

Can we also dethrone the king at the same time?

Its one of the few work able solutions.

The fact that it comes from a left leaning place gives me a little hope. The Right "state's rights" people would face too much resistance. Reverse engineering what the politicians have been doing to us for years.

If only. I wish them success. Look at this list of people going for this:

Tea party people and far-left people. I love it.

We should have a good old convention. Pick 55 of the smartest people in the country and see what they come up with. It worked once before!
