The 27 amendments to the U.S. Constitution have been ratified in four historic waves following periods of polarization, Congressional gridlock, and public frustration. We are now in an emerging fifth wave, most robustly organized around the unresolved issues of national debt, campaign money corruption, and term limits for federal offices. This presentation will cover the genesis of these current issues, contemporary players (organizations and individuals), their tactics, and progress to date.
