I'm Guessing Just The Fact That These Were Proposed....

...indicates that we were on the precipice of complete dissolution of the union and utter destruction of the republic in, at least: 1893, 1894, 1912, 1914, 1916, 1933, 1936...

Especially since that one in 1933 didn't get anywhere.  Pity that.  Talk about an:
1933 was a good year for it. As well as 1938, 1947, 1948, 1971. If the amendment in '71 had been approved, we might not have anything to fear now!  (click the picture in the tweet for the full review)

Or it just proves we've had MTG's in Congresss since at least 1893.

Or we're always living on the eve of destruction.  Over and over and over again, my friend.

  1. Abolishing the Senate would have vastly improved things. I heard recently that Britain is one of two countries in Europe who have a bicameral legislature and it like the USA is a dysfunctional state, though not so much because of that, anymore. It's more the lying tabloidization of the minds of its People which is where our problem also starts.

    I could get behind several of them but due to the corruption of our politics and public life through lying, there's not a chance in hell of any good coming out of it anymore. I know there were times of enormous partisan polarization in the past, especially when Republicans held the government last in the 19th century, but I can't imagine a time of it being better here anytime again without drastic changes in the Constitution which, like abolishing the Senate has no chance in hell of passing the Senate. Nor would it come through the other route that would require the states where tiny populations hold such out of sized sway through the Senate. Without a an even bloodier, more disastrous civil war to settle that issue, the Constitutional anti-democracy will always burden us with slave-power reaching out from the grave to strangle it.
