It appears that the only answer remaining to this problem is a Convention of States whereby amendments can be offered and approved by the states with no Federal Government control whatsoever. Many amendments are needed such as a balanced budget, term limits, and much more. The Federal Government has usurped power from the states and a Convention of States is about returning power to the states and thus to the people where it belongs.

Tryannical government (more restrictive than it already is)
A second Civil War or Revolution (would this not be an opening for foreign interference)
