For approximately five years now, I have been suggesting that We, The People, who truly believe in Individual Liberty, and State Sovereignty, call for an Article V, Constitutional Convention, which gives us, in these 50 states, via our State Legislatures, and “independent of Congress,” a process for adding amendments to The United States Constitution.
Sadly, whenever I, or anyone else, makes this suggestion, we are often confronted by the fear-mongers, who claim that such a Convention would be hijacked by the leftists, and we would end up in much worse shape. These fears, while understandable to an extent, shows either a complete lack of faith in the process for which our Founders created, or a complete misunderstanding of how the process is meant to work. If we except the status-quo, and allow fear to prevent us from trying something new, and out-of-the-box, then, we deserve exactly the Government we currently have!
For those who are looking for a perfectly legal, and Constitutional, method, to amend our Constitution, without a permission slip from Congress, and through our respective State Legislatures, then, Mark Levin’s new book, “The Liberty Amendments,” is a must have! When I first heard of this book, I was very excited, and purchased it immediately. I am very pleased that someone as high profile as Mark Levin has written this book. I am hoping that it will begin the discussion, and perhaps get the ball rolling, on a process that, in my humble opinion, is long overdue.
Please check out the below video, of Mark Levin, on The Hannity Show, discussing the book, and explaining how The Article V process works:
