About a month ago radio talk show host and author Mark Levin brought out his latest book proposing for the states to call for a Constitutional Convention to adopt what he is calling his liberty amendments. At least one of his amendments, the repeal of the 17th amendment, would be valuable with the rest of them having some appeal but not likely to solve the problems we face today. Remember, our problems today are not because of flaws in our Constitution and Bill of Rights, but rather our people don't demand their elected officials govern according to our founding documents. In addition, almost all amendments beyond our original documents have created problems toward good government rather than improved things. Why would we think these new amendments would improve things or even be obeyed if the original documents aren't followed?
Constitutional Convention is an extremely dangerous event, especially when you do not have the votes to carry the day. Even if there is a great division, there is too much unknown about the event, the voters, and just what might be revised. I feel if Congress will not do their job, their records need to be published in their Districts and responsible candidates discovered to take their place. A lot of work and now would almost be too late to get started for 2014 which should be a tipping point for the remainder of bho's term and direction for a revised USA.
There is NO way this would work today, with the self serving RATS we have in power.......
NO CON CON, for all of the above. Plus the stupidity of our current government. Plus the number of commies in government. Plus the muzzies in government. Plus the corrupt media that lies daily. Plus the stupidity of our current citizens. Plus the non-virtuous-ness of all. Remember, we as a country let this happen.
He is NOT calling for a CON-CON! He is calling for a convention of the States to propose Amendments to the Constitution - 2/3 of the States, with ratification by 3/4 of the States to follow. A CON-CON is to propose changes to the Constitution itself. Why don't you read the book?
Tks 2 the MUSLIM in the White House and the IDIOTS in OUR Congress that we elected, the only solution I can see is replacing the IDIOTS we elected with People who will follow the OATH they take!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What we really need to do is go back to the original Constitution and the give the politicians 200 years to screw it up again.
I agree a con con is a bad idea. It will back fire and we could loose the Constitution.
The way I understand it, is, that any Constitutional Convention can and will change everything we stand for and no telling what EVIL will come in, and a Constitutional Convention can change America into anything the NWO wants. If levin and anyone else is calling for this to happen while America is in such turmoil, then there is absolutely no doubt that he and people like him are commies and following a NWO agenda. NO Constitutional Convention! We have a constitution that they are not abiding by. First, get rid of ALL of congress and implement the constitution we have and get rid of all the commies, NOW, and then after a 100 years of reconstruction and TRUE patriots are voted into office and all the scum commies hung, then set down and have a discussion of whether or not to have it. levin is trying to trick everyone like he has always been doing. Actually the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CONSTITUTION is fine the way it is and laws can be added by a new true blue American congress, that ensure this evil going on now, NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.
THE REAL PROBLEM IS ( FAR TO MANY PAYED VOTERS IF THEY STAY ON WELFARE THEY SHOULD BE TAKEN OFF THE VOTER LIST ) .
I agree 100%
