Regarding Article V:
“It moreover equably enables the general and the state governments to originate the amendment of errors as they may be pointed out by the experience on one side or on the other.”
But, of course the state governments are not treated equably by the language of Article V. Congress needs a simple majority for a quorum and a 2/3 majority to propose. But the states need 2/3 for a quorum. If it was truly equitable in practice, as well as theory, how is it that Congress has proposed 33 amendments, and the states have produced none?
