We don't need 100% of states to pass a new amendment to limit the Federal leviathan, only 2/3's majority to propose only 3/4's majority to pass. Not easy, but doable.

You assume that just because people aren't happy with the government most people want the same thing you do. I think you could get all those people to agree they aren't happy about it, but if you think they all want to move further right like yourself, then you'd be mistaken, which is why what you propose is a pipe dream. States rights is not a thing most Americans are concerned with, which is why the tea party is a marginal group of people in comparison to the US population (that's not to say they don't have influence, of course.)
