  2. I remain apprehensive of the matter. Too much can go wrong, too much would be open and subjected to repeal or amending. Also, if, a balance budget amendment were to pass, what makes anyone believe that Congress or Obama would obey it? Look how the Second Amendment, or the Fourth Amendment, are violated with complete impunity.

    • “The ratification process ensures no amendments will be passed that do not reflect the desires of the American people. In addition to this, there are numerous other safeguards against a runaway convention.

      When the Founders wrote the Constitution, they did not anticipate modern-day politicians who take advantage of loopholes and vague phraseology. Even though it is obvious to all reasonable Americans that the federal government is violating the original meaning of the Constitution, Washington pretends otherwise, claiming the Constitution contains broad and flexible language. Amendments at a Convention of States today will be written with the current state of the federal government in mind. The language they use for these amendments will be unequivocal. There will be no doubt as to their meaning, no possibility of alternate interpretations, and no way for them to be legitimately broken. For example, the General Welfare Clause could be amended to add this phrase: “If the States have the jurisdiction to spend money on a subject matter, Congress may not tax or spend for this same subject matter.” This provision would have made it clear that Obamacare was unconstitutional.

      In addition to this, it should be noted that the federal government has not violated the amendments passed in recent years. Women’s suffrage, for example, has been 100% upheld.”
      ^^That’s from Farris & Meckler’s site.
      Professor Natelson, who is the top expert on this subject in the country, has written extensively on this topic as well.

  3. Michigan is moving forward and I think it’s about time the nation took them seriously. This is the first step in ensuring Michigan’s future and the future of many other states. Washington needs to wake up and see what’s going on around them. They should all be out of jobs for what they have been putting our country through!

    • I live in Michigan and I never really believed the hype that the state was turning itself around after that Granholm debacle we had for so long. The state still has its problems but it has shown time and again that it is at the forefront of advanced social and political thinking. It’s no surprise that Michigan has joined the Article V campaign.

  4. This is exactly what we need to see! More states jumping on the Article V train and showing Congress that we want a real change, not the one they have been promising for decades.
