I Changed My Mind - Now I Support The Amendment Process

I will always remember how Levin mocked Ron Paul. The fact that he did not have the ability to see a good man causes me to watch him closely. Trust but verify.

However, it is wrong to equate the message with the messenger.

I agree with Levin on the issue of the Amendment process. What are we protecting? A lying President with lying servants and no enforcement of perjury? Obamacare? NSA? A Constitution that is totally ignored?

I've watched this deterioration since I was a teenager in the 1970's. I remember the articles about America on the verge of a monetary crash - that was in 1975.

Levin is talking about using Amendments to modify the Constitution - which would require 3/4th of the States - no different than what we currently have available.

So we can sit back for another forty years as I have done (we got Kennedy, Goldwater, Reagan,and Ron Paul - not enough). Or we can keep trying different complimentary approaches until one of them takes off.

Yes, Granger. It would spark off major debates in every newspaper and in every state. Media would be interviewing Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz. There would be debates all over the place. There would be a surge of constitutional candidates at all levels.

Once again, we would start talking about left/right in terms of tyranny versus freedom as described by the founders, not your big government versus my big government.

Getting Rand elected is nothing compared to the real movement that could occur with a set of Amendments circulating the country. Both actions would be complimentary.

The only concern is that the Amendment process has already been available to us. What would we do to get it off the ground? Is it possible?
