Turning the Tide: Article V Amendment Convention, Part 1

Today, I spoke with Representative Brad Daw (UT) and Senator Curtis Olafson (ND) on the Article 5 Amendment Convention goal to put into place a National Debt Relief Amendment requiring the federal government to come to, and get, approval from 2/3rds of the States before they can raise the debt ceiling, and the government has to come with a compelling reason. Article 5 of the US Constitution states: “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 Convention in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

    Oh my goodness GoExtremeAudio – read Article V of the US Constitution and realize that all the great constitutional minds I have discussed this with clearly state that an Article V AMENDMENT Convention can be restricted to the topic of the single amendment, and that amendment alone. Listen to the entire interview, Parts 1 and 2, and then maybe you can open your mind.

    Biggest difference between Balanced Budget Amendment and Debt Relief Amendment is that the BBA does not prevent the Government from either raising the debt ceiling or from raising taxes to ridiculous levels. The Debt Relief Amendment at least prevents one of these from happening.

    It would be so nice if and when selected representatives were honest to recognize the dangers of the their actions. I have been personally fighting this movement for the last year to see some complete distortions of the truth from Brad Daw of Utah regarding this issue of a Constitutional Convention. I personally do not care what he or anyone else calls this thing either an Amendments Convention or an Article V Convention because when you call a duck by any other name it is still a duck.
