Mark Levin Wants A Constitutional Convention

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?

Or a rat, tending to NWO

As Patrick Henry would say. ;)

You mean that Ron-Paul hating A-Hole Mark Levin???

That rat-bastard Levin who bashed Dr. Paul (AND US) relentlessly during each of Dr. Paul's campaigns???

The same Levin who called Dr. Paul a racist nut-job???

I would never buy one of that bastard's books after what he did to Dr. Paul - and us.

I can't believe anyone on the DailyPaul would support this Israel-first, ANTI-American, Neo-Con RAT.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

This is a switch for Levin

Levin is a mixed bag. He's for sure a Neocon but compared to neocons like McCain, well Levin doesn't look that bad.

He used to argue against an Article V convention. At this point, I can't see that it could make things any worse.

He's also warmed up to liberty on some other issues. I wouldn't suggest trusting him, but when he's right he makes a good case.

I think this is very good for Ted Cruz

I don't know if this is good for Rand.. but if he includes Rand.. this would be AWESOME

I want Mark Levin to

I want Mark Levin to disappear. Lying Neocon scum like him don't deserve a national radio show. He is a mouthpiece for the mafia government, just like Limbaugh and Hannity.

What is the point?

Barely anyone inside or outside of government pays attention to the one we have now. I don't trust my state officials as far as I can throw them, they are arguably worse than the ones in Washington.

Bad idea.

The John Birch society has been warning against a Convention for a long time, they say once it happens all bets are off and anything can be changed.

The Grate one is bad news anyway.

Take a guess who 'will' be

Take a guess who 'will' be invited to write the new constitution, and who 'wont' be allowed inside or even have their opinion heard...

Read up on the original

Read up on the original Constitutional Convention and find out why they're a bad idea.

The state delegates went to a Convention, just as Levin is saying, simply to propose and hopefully ratify several amendments to the Articles of Confederation. Instead, it became clear that the powers that be decided they wanted a more centralized national government, and we got an entirely new Constitution out of the event.

And Amendments are easily ignored and mean nothing if we, the people, don't enforce them. If it did happen, we'd probably end up with an even more centralized, authoritarian government.

Government isn't the answer.

Good Point

Especially if the convention lines up with a 'crisis'.
