5. It'd probably end up in the Supreme Court

There's a lot of interpretation about that period of ten years. Only every ten years? At least every ten years? The Constitution is a bit unclear.

However, the Constitution does explicitly leave it up to Congress to set the terms. So if we take both chambers and the presidency, the attempt could be made. I think Republicans would throw a fit and take it to court, but I don't see anything there that says we can't.

Of course, I'm not a lawyer.
