The entire Constitutional Convention debate was filled with the topic of state sovereignty. Of course every detail is not written in Art V but state sovereignty and power was so basic to the Framers and permeating discussions that to have to say that states could decide on the topic of their very own called proposal convention could not have been viewed as anything short of needless.

It is only logical that states, which created the federal govt, would decide, based on their applications, under what pretext a convention – a meeting – to propose amendments would be held. To think otherwise simply doesnt fit the power that states were meant to maintain.

@bcanderson. That would be best of course. VA has one supportive Democrat, but I think he is the only one.
That could end up to bite us in the end. The liberals could co-opt a convention of states and we could end up with worse than what we have. We just need to demand that the president and congress follow the constitution as it is. I don't know why they get by with swearing in on a Bible and not honor their promise to uphold the Constitution of the U.S.A.

So continue. An article 5 convention and that do not interfere with one another.

Totally agree. Horrible, dangerous, far reaching negative impact.

He answered, more clearly than his pea brain can understand.

John Boehner accuses Obama of lawlessness, does nothing. This movie has been in theaters for 6 years.
And yet the GOP sheeple in the House of Representatives (minus a few brave souls) are just gonna keep Boneless in the speaker's chair. I already gave up on the Republican Party in January 2013.

So John Boehner walks into the room, gets aggravated, the little kid Obama pays him no mind, slams the beads into the glass, blames Boehner for shutting down the government.

Did the author of this article actually LISTEN to the interview??????? Cummings (who is loathesome, btw) DISAGREED with those saying it’s largely due to Obama being black. Bob Scheifer tossed that turd into the pool to see if he could get the race card rolling. He’s loathesome.

Wow so with Obamacare I can go online and buy insurance, and businesses can also shop for insurance. Gee, never before could we actually SHOP for health insurance. What a novel idea. How on earth did we get health insurance before this field of unicorns arrived?

92% unemployment rate for black people age 16-19 in Chicago. Very high rates everywhere else too. No, unemployment doesn’t make for a jihadist, but an idle mind looking for something to belong to (just like a gang) is ripe to be pulled into the fray. And when we have a President promoting that people are owed things, well prepare for the worst. And the worst is what we have in that Presidency.
