Mark Levin suggests the States call an Article Five Amendment Convention

Top conservative radio talk show host, attorney and constitutional scholar Mark Levin announced the pending release of his new book, "The Liberty Amendments, Restoring the American Republic," this past Wednesday, July 10, 2013, during his regular broadcast. The book due out on or about August 13th of this year is sure to be well received and thoughtful exegesis regarding our Constitution, and in keeping with his best selling, "Liberty and Tyranny," as well as the more recent, "Ameritopia."

Levin previewed an argument under Article Five of the United States Constitution which expresses how the Constitution can be changed through the amendment process by using the traditional passage of a proposed amendment by two-thirds of both the House of Representatives and the Senate; then on to the several states for ratification. Once three-fourths of the states have ratified the proposed amendment, the approved Amendment becomes part of our United States Constitution.

What Levin also said was that the States could also propose a convention to add a specific amendment or reject a current amendment by calling an Amendment Convention. This convention would have no bearing on the existing framework of the Constitution, but would only affect the addition or subtraction of an amendment at hand.

Your efforts are appreciated! Sharing ideas is what made this country great.

 Do you really think the leftists who WILL PRESIDE and control that convention would allow any amendments that would stop them?  Guess again. Be careful or you'll be helping them destroy the Constitution by giving them the opportunity to do so. (at that very constitutional convention) They will throw The Constitution out. They WILL.

Oren....Just to confirm your point....I learned long ago from reading your posts....you, in fact, don't have not only all the answers...but very few of them. IMHO. Jack

Was that really called for?

Let's see....If it wasn't called for....I wouldn't have posted it.....so.....what is your question/point?? Maybe ya don't have one. No response required or needed.

OK...when the left runs out of facts....they shut up...Thanks. 

Thanks for the "warning" Terri. Might be helpful not to pick and choose based on some unknown bias you have. 

BTW...this comment is just for you....you don't have to post it. JLS

No bias?? That should be determined by someone other than you. Thanks for the latest of several warnings. Goodbye!!

Oren I've found two good ways to deal with personal attacks:

1. Ignore the attack completely. If there's any substance to discuss, do that, but without mentioning the attack. OR,

2. Respond to the attack lightheartedly; something like "Gee I've never been called a slice off the same turd as McCain before." AND THEN deal with the substance.

Real hard core personal attacks -- the kind that make you think do I need a rabies shot -- I usually ignore. These foaming at the mouth type actions rarely have enough substance to be worth an answer. Moderators will generally step in on those.

Too bad the idiots who are in power now would preside over such a convention. They would throw out The Constitution of The United States of America along with the Bill of Rights rights and we'll all be forced to live under the boot of some kind of socialist police state HELL. NO thanks.
We all need to be very, very careful of what we allow them to do. A Constitutional Convention while they're still in charge is an EXTREMELY DANGEROUS idea. They the socialists would preside over it and we would get less than nothing. There may soon be a time but it is NOT while they are in charge.

That's why we have the Second Amendment and it's about time to implement it.

Yikes !!! Ocasio-Cortez: We Need A ‘Multigendered, Multigeographic’ United States

The United States of America needs to be “multigendered” and “multigeographic,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who endorsed fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York on Saturday.

The freshman lawmaker and “Squad” member officially endorsed Sanders during a rally in Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday and called for more diversity in the U.S., arguing that it should not only be “multiracial” and “multigenerational” but “multigeographic” and “multigendered.”

“We need a United States that really, truly, and authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working – and all – people in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

“That is what it – it is multiracial, multigendered, multigenerational, and multigeographic,” she said, failing to elaborate on what that specifically looks like.

“We have to come together, not ignoring our differences but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice,” she continued.

The socialist lawmaker also implied that rampant racism is still alive and well in the U.S., telling the crowd that it is essential to understand “that we operate in a context where slavery evolved into Jim Crow, evolved into mass incarceration, [and] evolved into the realities we have today.”
