The way our system works, if any politician were to lead the effort to stop the stealing of tax-payer dollars for political, unconstitutional purposes, the first person to reap a penalty is them.  No immediate penalty for their peers that try to continue stealing.  NO penalty for the people who are no longer being stolen from.  The only one penalized is the person who tries to stop.  Like being the first person of the group to let go of the rampaging tiger’s tail, even if holding on is going to eventually kill the tiger.  Not a good system.  Not a system where this is likely to motivate the crooks at the top.

Not realistic to expect this to happen top down.  Even with the major effort of sending Tea Party motivated politicians with long histories of being staunch conservatives, the system is so stacked against them that initially they are just making noise.  Takes years for them to acquire any tenure to actually get on any committees to affect change and then only after they are in the favor of the chairman de jour.

ONLY realistic way for this to be fixed is for the states, the only parties with “standing”, to do an article 5 convention and then do ammendments that they would actually ratify, taking power back away from DC and restoring the original blueprint.  Not dangerous as purported by the MSM, because any looney-left ammendments would not be likely to ever get a quoram of votes.
