Article V of the U.S. Constitution reads:
“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 . . . “.
The most important part is after the first “or” because the 2nd prescribed method for amending the Constitution does not need to be voted on by Congress! This is important because if you believe Washington D.C. (District of Corruption) is going to fix itself, then you believe pigs can fly!
I will be a delegate to the Sacramento Convention December 3 & 4 being held at the State Capitol of California and will be reporting here later, but in the mean time here are some links to better understand what this whole Article V Convention thing is all about:
That should keep you busy and I’ll catch you on the rebound. I’ll also include photos of the capitol of California and other sites encountered!
