Mark Levin On Article V

Remember when I suggested that Article V is the proper vehicle to use to remedy the lawlessness we are seeing from our own government?

Mark Levin proposes the same:

If you can’t see this, you can go here.

  1. Article. V.
    The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

  2. I disagree on one very important point: the answers are NOT in the Constitution. The answers are in the Declaration of Independence. That is where we find the principles and ideals upon which our nation was founded. They are not in the Constitution. The Constitution is merely 1 possible way of protecting and preserving the ideals and principles espoused in the Declaration. Unless and until we recapture this understanding — the understanding our founders, themselves, said is the proper on to maintaining a free and self-governing society — we will fail in our attempts to regain our individual rights and liberties.

    • Joe is correct. Until the spirit contained in our Declaration of Independence is renewed.

      The constitution is being ignored.

      Amend it all you want, it will be ignored until it mandates Marxism upon all of us.

  3. Joe,

    Agreed, the Bill of Rightsis is the guarrantor of the Constitution. The progressives know this and that is what they are attacking Amendment by Amendment.

    Thanks to public education and lazy parents 9 out 10 students don’t even know what it is or have taken time to read and understand how it’s demise will totally destroy any future they have.

    Just a relic from the past.

  4. Marxists would love to see a Constitutional convention. They would weasel a way to rewrite the entire constitution, with the inclusion of the entire Marxist Agenda. Then the “Transformation” would be complete.

    • I know what Article V says. I also know Progressive ?Marxists. And I know the Republican A**holes we have representing us. Regardless what the Constitution says, the weasels would inherit the henhouse.

      • VERY Good points !

        But what would you suggest we do ?…….The Liberal/Democrat progressives and the Republican progressives haven’t been and especially NOW aren’t following the Constitution .

        Levin is right….the answer DOESN’T lie in Washington……Democrats and Republicans ( McCain ? Rubio? Paul Ryan ? ) are NOT going to act Constitutionally and reduce their power.

        • Alright; so we have a Constitutional Convention. How do we keep the weenies and the a**holes out. The same politically motivated bunglers that are in Washington and state houses all across America will end up in the hall, making the “New Constitution of The People”
          So what do we do?
          Put together an army,(wait)and take over an Island or part of a Banana Republic. Then get foreign aid.

          • To be serious, I don’t know , really what to do. How many times over the past 35-40 years have I seen people I was sure were Constitutionally sound, go progressive on us, or lose their sand and lay low when their vote was needed?. How many “sleeper” judges, in crucial cases have tossed the Constitution aside and ruled some screwy way that furthered the Marxist agenda? (I am no longer calling the opposition anything but Marxist. As long as they facilitate that agenda , that’s what they are)
            The above post was Tongue in cheek, but what’s left? I have no faith that we could hope for anything close to Constitutional Correctness from any group assembled from across the US. Turncoats and sleepers abound (see Marco Rubio And Justice Roberts). I would like to believe in the ability of this country to create and abide by sane Constitutional concepts, but if our electeds don’t follow it now, why would we expect Constitutional Convention vRepresentatives to be any better at it?

            • Well………..Good points ! And I likewise don’t have any answer to your points because I agree about the Marxist Sleepers like Rubio, McCain and Justice Roberts and MANY MANY others.

  5. I guess I feel sorta Poly annish about all this

    Joe is right. The Understanding and comittment to the ideals and principles within the Declaration are CRUCIAL . Americans need to embrace these as theirs again………….Education is key….Ongoing like at RNL and other sites, conversation we ALL have socially and longer term Home schooling and trying to have an impact on your local School Districts.

    Chhelo is right about defending the Bill of Rights……RIGHT NOW……and educating about what they really are why they are important. Which is a Large part of what Mark Levin is focused on…….Constitutional Amendments which ultimately will protect the B of Rs by attacking those political artifacts which have been erected to destroy them…….Government Agencies like the EPA, Dept of Education, new Dodd-Franks Comsumer Protection agency etc…….and attacking the Powers that Politicians and the Judiciary have assumed for themselves and usurped from the People and Constitution itself.

    Texas, Utah and Levin are right is trying to use the Constitution as Originally written and its intent to RE-ESTABLISH Constitutional Law and protections, and the ultimate power in “we the People” via True Separation of Powers.

    BUT…….I feel we also CANNOT loose sight of the 2014 MIDTERMS. In other words ALL of these have to be done simultaneously……..this is a war and we have to fight it with both SHORT-Term Goals and LONG-term Goals…….. And what Levin is suggesting fits into the LONG-TERM strategy ! Where it can intersect is in Re-igniting a ” Fire in the Hearts of Men” towrads the Principles of Natural Law, towards a new interest in the Civil Society.

    And this Civil Society being based on a profound respect for All Life……for Liberty ….and for a respect for Private Property as an intimate expression of Liberty and the ability to decide one’s own path.

  6. All good posts! Don, I think you have the answer (Mark Levin) which is going to take time. We got into this Constitution/Declaration nullification over the last fifty years and it’s going to take all of us to set America back on track.

    I think we have to single out specific acting lifetime politicians like McCain, Graham, Rubio, Flack, Ayotte, and find people like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, to run against them. Mike Enzi is being challenged by Lynn Cheney in Montana.

    We have to challenge a small group of three to five at a time each election and pound them with ads and money. (A good start are the ads against Graham running in his district.) We have to defeat these few so bad that the rest of the Congress will start to get the idea that they are not permanent fixtures, the current policy.

    The word I get from my local TEAParty and TEAParty Express, SarahPAC, is just this type of operation. Too bad the RNC is fighting them, together we could make bigger inroads than the 2010 election in 2014. The RNC will not give up it’s power as long as McCain, et al is pulling the strings with Dingy Harry and Der Schumer.

    As stated, we need to formulate our position with the SHORT/LONG term goals. History has shown us that we can overcome our sad state of government. President Lincoln did a pretty good job of correcting the wayward U.S in 1865. I think we have a long way to go to reach those depths.

    • Yes to your Ads against Lindsey Graham……This is EXACTLY the kind of action needed for the SHORT-TERM battles. But (1) remember there are those who feel similarly to you and I……but BEVERTHELESS will continue to support Destructive People like McCain…..by refering to him in wishy-washy terms Like “silly Dolt”, saying they “WISH” he would retire……implying on the one hand they have no power to remove him and on the other Broadcasting that they have no intention of going against such a great “American Hero”.

      And (2)…..What assurance do we have that, even if the Ads are successful against a Fruad RINO like Pro-Amnesty Graham, the TP / Conservatives won’t be defrauded yet again with another ..Rubio….Flake….Ayotte or even a phoney like Paul Ryan ???

      I think we (The Country) really can’t survive any more * Maro Rubios*….. I just heard his Cough-cough “conservative” questioning og Samantha Powers ( who PUBLICALLY has said the Constitution should be , in so many words, Trashed and replaced as does her Husband Cass Sunstien )…..he basically set it up so she could make False Statements making herself sound like a “Conservative….Pro-American”………Rubio is using EXACTLY the tactics used by Marxists.

      SO…..we have to address this Problem….otherwise we could win 70% of the up-coming seats and end up really losing because we will have elected mostly Rubio-esque Trojan Horse-Quislings.
