Mark Levin Wants A Constitutional ConventionSubmitted by Tman2000 on Thu, 07/11/2013 - 21:42
He is writing a book called: The Liberty Amendments. We'll see what they turn out to be. It comes out in August.
However, he will be pushing an Article V constitutional convention very heavily on his show and in TV appearances.
He argues that the Article V convention isn't dangerous because all it does is propose amendments, which must still be ratified by 3/4 of the states. This is no different then the power Congress already has. In this case, Congress is out of the loop. State legislatures can handle the process all by themselves.
What do you think about this?
I think the idea of an Article V convention seems pretty good, and I'm not so worried about it. On the other hand, every new law in this country sneaks in trojan horse rules. Can that happen with simple amendments? Particularly if each requires 3/4 of the states to ratify?
But, will 3/4 of the states ever really ratify any liberty amendments? Maybe they will, most 'blues' are in big cities, and many states' GOP are a little better than the national party.
Anyway, we'll see what the proposed amendments are, but what of this Article V convention idea? And Mark Levin leading the charge?
