  1. Article V states that when an idea of an amendment comes up it doesn’t go through the president, it actually goes through the states. Whenever two thirds of the Congress/Houses find it necessary to add another amendment to the Constitution they shall call a Convention with the states to propose Amendments they want to add to the Constitution. The proposed Amendments must be accepted by at least all or most of their Intents and Purposes. That is why they have a two thirds or a three fourths vote, to have a majority rule over the voting of an Amendment. As long as no Amendment made before the year 1808 affects the 1st and 4th Clauses in the 9th Section of Article 1 and that no state gets left behind unless they give consent to it then nothing shall be in the way of equal Suffrage in the Senate.
