I fear that it will take an even bigger national crisis before this starts getting traction.

LOL.

Cucks and Never Trumpers desperate for relevancy. Too late, Levin! You had your chance, but put your own interests ahead of America's.

You may very well be right. I view the rise of Trump as the expression of widespread disgust with government as it is. I hope this disgust can be redirected next year toward an Article V convention.

This country is quickly heading for replacement of the Constitution with something else. We’ve already heard blacks and feminists calling for this, who believe it is a racist, sexist, et al., document designed to oppress. And it won’t even be called the Constitution because these disaffected groups think it has a lot of baggage. A Clinton win in November will hasten this. Mark my words, in a Hillary Presidency there will be a commission, like the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa, which will conduct a show trial of dead white males and draft a new ruling document. Levin and all the #NeverTrumpers can preach conservative principles and Constitutional conservatism, and they will viewed as Apartheid supporters (and under the government will eventually be arrested for subversion).

If they really wanted to preserve the Constitution, they should’ve protected the country from the flood from the third world. A Constitution is created out of the people and is antecedent to the formation of the nation. It expresses their values and virtues. You supplant the people with a new people hold radically different values and they no longer understand or appreciate these values and the expressions of these highest ideals, summon bonum, in a document (the Constitution).

And the irony of ironies is the #NeverTrumpers and anti-Trump conservatives, e.g., Ryan, Kasich, Bush, et al., are for flooding this country with peoples hostile to these conservative ideals and will support the evisceration of these ideals from government.

Ryan, Kasich and Bush are not conservatives.

And once again Levin is spot on. Progressives are the problem, the lefties are easy to spot.

Sorry, Mike, but the term “Liberty Amendment” has already been taken.

In 1944, Willis E. Stone, an industrial engineer and polemicist proposed an amendment to the Constitution to abolish the federal income tax, which he dubbed the Liberty Amendment. By 1962, Stone was working full-time to pass this amendment as the chairman of the Liberty Amendment Committee of the USA. By 1982, when Stone retired, nine states had ratified the Liberty Amendment.

The COS simulated convention went very well, and can be viewed, along with several descriptive columns at the COS website.

If we act, there is hope.

I have read some of that, it does offer hope and encouragement. It brightens a very bleak election cycle.

"Too late, Levin!"

Levin's book was published several years ago - long before Trump thought about running. If you think Trump is some kind of savior, you're dreaming. Even Reagan couldn't do it by himself.

I view the rise of Trump as the expression of widespread disgust with government as it is. I hope this disgust can be redirected next year toward an Article V convention.

After the November election, our efforts carry on in support of the Article V Convention of States. Our federal government is broken. The only peaceful way to fix it is Article V.

It's been awhile since I've posted these links, so here goes:

We are fighting for the soul of our Sacred Republic. The terror attacks and the demands for a "new Constitution" are signs of a quickening in this battle.

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 6 States, {Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee}, 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 3/4 of the states in order to become part of the US Constitution. That's 38 states.

"There are far more political and legal constraints on a runaway convention than on a runaway Congress." - Robert Natelson

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.

It is infuriating to have to defend Mark Levin against such puerile defamation, a man whose manifold conservative credentials are impeccable.

I hope other readers consider that when Mark Levin is being denigrated for his great contributions to the movement to advance Article V, the ideas which are being derogated are those advanced by the father of the Constitution, James Madison.

Levin put himself before the movement.

It's horrible when that happens but he - and you - have no one to blame but Levin.

Put all that to one side and focus on November 8. If Trump wins, your dream could come true. If Trump loses, it’s all effete sophistry.
