Dundee Watchdog believes the only way to save America from the Federal Government is to call a New Constitutional Convention utilizing Article 5 in our Constitution.
“There is another part of Article 5 that is not as well known. The States themselves can propose amending the constitution by calling for a national constitutional convention. It takes two-thirds of the legislatures of the various states to call for a national constitutional convention. If that happens, the Federal Government doesn’t have the option of not allowing it; by present constitutional law, a new constitutional convention must be held.”
“As it happens, state legislatures have been calling for a national constitutional convention for years. Most of state legislatures have specific amendments in mind that they want to become part of the US Constitution, such as the balanced budget amendment, the equal rights amendment, a flat income tax, etc. As it happens, by some current counts, only two additional state legislatures need to pass resolutions calling for a national constitutional convention.”
Mark Levin Wants A Constitutional Convention

He is writing a book called: The Liberty Amendments. We'll see what they turn out to be. It comes out in August.
However, he will be pushing an Article V constitutional convention very heavily on his show and in TV appearances.
He argues that the Article V convention isn't dangerous because all it does is propose amendments, which must still be ratified by 3/4 of the states. This is no different then the power Congress already has. In this case, Congress is out of the loop. State legislatures can handle the process all by themselves.
What do you think about this?
I think the idea of an Article V convention seems pretty good, and I'm not so worried about it. On the other hand, every new law in this country sneaks in trojan horse rules. Can that happen with simple amendments? Particularly if each requires 3/4 of the states to ratify?
But, will 3/4 of the states ever really ratify any liberty amendments? Maybe they will, most 'blues' are in big cities, and many states' GOP are
