The Founders bequeathed Americans a method to bypass the federal government and amend the Constitution, empowering two thirds of the states to call an Amendments Convention. In the wake of Mark Levin’s bestselling book, The Liberty Amendments, proposing just such a convention, entirely unnecessary alarms have been raised by even some of the leading lights of conservatism, based on an incomplete reading of history and judicial case law.
A good read while you read Levin’s book.

Democratic congressman Jerrold Nadler appears to be warning President Obama in a statement released today on striking Syria. “Constitution Requires Congressional Authorization on Use of Force Against Syria,” reads the title of Nadler’s statement.
The text of the statement reads:
The Constitution requires that, barring an attack on the United States or an imminent threat to the U.S., any decision to use military force can only be made by Congress — not by the President. The decision to go to war — and we should be clear, launching a military strike on another country, justified or not, is an act of war — is reserved by the Constitution to the American people acting through their elected representatives in Congress.
Since there is no imminent threat to the United States, there is no legal justification for bypassing the Constitutionally-required Congressional authorization. “Consultation” with Congress is not sufficient. The Constitution requires Congressional authorization.
The American people deserve to have this decision debated and made in the open, with all the facts and arguments laid out for public review and debate, followed by a Congressional vote. If the President believes that military action against Syria is necessary, he should immediately call Congress back into session and seek the Constitutionally-required authorization.
Nadler is the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

For all you that want to do something about the state of our country remember the founders put two ways into the Constitution one way to amend it is with congress, the other is without … Congress. Who would think Congress would fix what they created??? They are part of the system you want fixed…
Article Five of the United States Constitution describes the process whereby the Constitution may be altered. Altering the Constitution consists of proposing an amendment or amendments and subsequent ratification.
Amendments may be proposed by either:
To become part of the Constitution, amendments must then be ratified either by approval of:
Any amendment so ratified becomes a valid part of the Constitution, provided that no state “shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the senate”, without its consent.

Levin’s book … Number 1 on Amazon … You wanted to know, what can I do? A lot!!!
Mark and his landmark legal Foundation already do a lot to get our country fixed. His radio show is broadcast nightly. He was recently on Hannity discussing things with a live audience.
It’s your country, get involved!!!

Walther E. Williams editorial …
Recent opinion polls demonstrate a deepening distrust of the federal government. That’s not an altogether bad thing.
Our nation’s founders recognized that most human abuses are the result of government. As Thomas Paine said, “government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil.” Because of their fear of abuse, the Constitution’s framers sought to keep the federal government limited in its power. Their distrust of Congress is seen in the governing rules and language used throughout our Constitution.
The Bill of Rights is explicit in that distrust, using language such as “Congress shall not abridge,” “shall not infringe,” and “shall not deny.” If the framers did not believe that Congress would abuse our God-given, or natural, rights, they would not have provided those protections. I’ve always suggested that if we see anything like the Bill of Rights at our next destination after we die, we’ll know that we’re in hell. A perceived need for such protection in heaven would be an affront to God. It would be the same as saying we can’t trust him.
