The constitution was specifically written to protect itself.  It works.  If
politicians get outside of their constitutional authority, they no longer
have any legal authority.

There aren't many amendments and there haven't been any in recent years.
The last amendment (27th) to be ratified was proposed in 1789 and was
ratified in 1992.  The one before that was ratified in 1971.

Best regards,

Eh, keep watching Daniel.  The USA will soon transition from modern monetary
theory (MMT) to post modern monetary theory (PMMT.)  This will happen not
because we want to but because it will be forced on the USA.  MMT holds that
government debt does not matter.  PMMT is similar to pre-MMT in that it
holds that government debt does matter.

When it finally sinks in to the voters that we must pay for all this,
everything changes.

I expect changes in the immediately foreseeable, as the two major parties in
the USA are pushing forward POTUS candidates who are well-known and both
wildly unpopular.
