What is this all about ?
As the president and congress of the United States expand their powers while disregarding the constraints of the U.S. Constitution, the People are growing anxious. Mark Levin has authored "The Liberty Amendments," and a national organization calling itself Convention of States has been formed.
This issue is addressed in Article V of the U.S. Constitution, which specifies how the People can amend the U.S. Constitution. We urge you to become familiar with this issue.
The Constitution can be amended "3" ways:
1) Congress can propose specific Amendments and send them to the States for a vote. (this is how most Amendments to the Constitution have been adopted and some rejected)
2) The Legislatures of 2/3 of the States can petition Congress to call a convention to propose Amendments, which would then be sent to the States for a vote.
Either way, the proposed Amendment(s) shall only take effect if ratified by the LEGISLATURES of three-fourths of the States, OR by CONVENTIONS in three-fourths of the States - depending on which Mode of Ratification may be proposed by Congress.
(The Wikipedia link, below, illustrates these options)
Mark Levin says he was originally skeptical of the second amendment process, but on further research, he now believes the requirement that three-fourths of the States (Legislatures or by conventions) ratify is such a serious check on the process that it "should extinguish anxiety that the state convention process could hijack the Constitution." Yet, major Constitutional experts and national organizations disagree - Eagle Forum and the John Birch Society among them.
