Mark Levin first began promoting the Article V remedy to the breakdown of constitutional government that we’ve witnessed with his book “the Liberty Amendments”. In theory Article V is the last legal procedural means of reigning in our corrupt courts, corrupt executive branch and restoring the legislative branch to it’s fundamental role. Unfortunately, what we’ve seen from the Democrat as well as the Republican primaries and RNC Convention, prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that there can be nothing “constitutional” nothing “lawful” initiated by “we the people” through our state legislators that will amount to anything more than words cast wastefully into the wind.
The RNC/GOP/TRUMP convention is all the further one need look to understand just how meaningless Article V is. To the established Washington elites our Constitution is just so much ink-splatter on an old parchment. When you think of these corrupt, crooked DC bastards, think of the Mel Brooks film “Blazing Saddles” as the Mexican Bandito’s are being deputized to do evil on behalf of the territorial governor under colour of law… they (our elected government, bureaucracy and appointed courts) are being given “badges” (authorization) proving the legitimacy of their authority.
The leader of the Bandits, (el jefe, el Presidente, Portavoz de la Casa, líder de la mayoría…) laughs and with maximum incredulity says “badges?… we don’t need no stinking badges!” And that in a nutshell is the real superstructure of our current government and political system. No words, no properly filed grievances, no amendments to the Constitution passed by the people denying them their badges, will have any impact on this government because the politicos in power will simply refuse to recognize our sovereignty and will never submit to our will.
Remember, the institutionalized bureaucratic government has the all the really big guns as well as heavy equipment. But I digress… As a microcosm, the RNC convention should inform you exactly how the elites of DC view rules and procedures that threaten their power. The rules and procedures have effect only so long as the elites are served by them, otherwise there are no rules and they “don’t need no stinking badges”.
So, an Article V convention of states has as much chance of changing the government that IS, as the free the Delegates movement had of securing a roll-call vote on rules or on the nomination at the RNC convention. That’s how politics in this country work now and actually how they’ve been working for nearly a century. I’m afraid it will take something more extreme than words drafted on an amendment to have any chance of destroying this tyranny. Our choice is to accept what’s happening and endure it for generations to come or fight to save our children if not ourselves from dark times ahead… dark times such as none in this nation have ever seen. Read the Declaration of Independence, then pray for God’s guidance.
Addendum: I was a supporter of the Article V convention of States, however events over the past year, in the Presidential primary race, the RNC convention, acts of the Judicial branch, the executive branch and the legislative branch of the Federal Government as well as a realization that real “conservatives” are in fact an extreme minority due to a successfully dumbed-down-America, have convinced me that there are no “legal” nor political grounds upon which an Article V convention of States would have any meaning. We are in the current paradigm, putting it politely as I can, SCREWED!
