Really?I live here and have mixed feelings about this measure.
I do think a constitution should be difficult to amend (national, state, whatever) and should require fairly broad support. I know many here are hyper focused on getting abortion on the ballot but it can go both ways, as a conservative group can get could just as easily a measure of their own on the ballot now, and Ohio liberals (shrinking by the day) may end up regretting the day something like that happens as they will likely not be able to defeat it at the ballot.
All I'm saying is that it's not as straightforward as it seems.
What the fuck do you have against "majority rule"?
The people in state houses* all across the country are elected to "REPRESENT" the people that elected them, NOT to "rule" the people that elected them.
* - same for city hall, county courthouse, and Washington DC.
