Governor Palin discusses calling for a ‘Convention of States’ as afforded by Article V of the U.S. Constitution. A solution for citizens to deal with an unresponsive government.

Palin joins the CoS!

Article V ping.

IIRC, this coming Monday, Levin will press the urgency for the states to convene. There truly is little time.

A state convention to propose amendments and oversee Scotus decisions should be an annual event.

One can only pray.

I would also like to propose another amendment that I believe would be common sense.

All articles, sections, clauses, and amendments in the Constitution are to be interpreted in their contemporary dictionary definitions.

I'm certainly not opposed to such a goal, yet it could be addressed statutorily. Congress could pass a bill that requires Scotus to use originalism in its constitutional interpretations.

My point of reference is Levin's Liberty Amendments, which refederalize, actually super-federalize the government such that power is diffused once again among the states that created the federal government in the first place.

I bet a Cruz or Trump would love and direct it.
You can take care of immigration right there as well.

Thank you Sarah Palin! Should be seen by all FReepers.

Spread the word. Time is short. It will take awhile to actually get the Convention of States started. Do what you can!

For those who think the Article V process is too risky, I ask, "What other options do you see?"

To summarize from a previous post by GraceG:

1. Elect More Republicans - Failed due to RINO/Uni-party confluence.

2. Article V Convention of States to propose Amendments - Needed to try to take power from the federal government back to the states and reel in the federal leviathan.

3. State Nullification - Last ditch effort to try to take power back from the federal monster, though by this point it may be too late.

4. State Secession - Could either end up peaceably like the breakup of the Czechoslovakia in 1993 or a brutal:

5. Civil War II like the first one.... The longer we wait on #2, the more likely #3, then #4 and finally #5. .

So, do we do nothing and just wait for # 5?

Quick review: We need 34 states to pass an application, then Congress shall, by law, call a Convention of States as soon as it receives applications from 2/3 of the State Legislatures. That's 34 states. (So far both legislative chambers of 4 States, {Alabama, Alaska, Florida and Georgia}, have completely passed their resolutions and 36 state legislative chambers or bodies have filed or passed resolutions.) Amendments are proposed and voted on at the convention. Each Amendment must be ratified by ¾ of the states in order to become part of the US Constitution. That’s 38 states.

Most FReepers are aware of these links, but I post anyway for review and for people new to Article V. It is our responsibility to make Article V the most understood aspect of the US Constitution.
