@Eric  There was a report on some TV show last night from a professor at some university saying the current crop of students are much more conservative than the current millenials.  I think that is good news and a good start. Won't attach to this issue but thought it interesting.

If true, that would be a relief.  Thanks for the tip.

I just found this in regards to the topic. I will share.

Amending the Amending Process in Article V
The Three-Fourths Rule Can Be Changed by the Convention
Janine Hansen, Eagle Forum National Constitutional Issue Chairman
Article V, if you read the whole thing, states at the end, "that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate." (That means States have 2 Senators cannot be changed unless the State approves). Because that is the Only Exclusion in Article Vas to what can be amended, it means that the entire Constitution with that single exception is open to amendment including Article V and the amending process.
When the founders met in the first Constitutional Convention they were operating under the Articles of Confederation which required a unanimous vote of the 13 states for any amendment. When the Constitutional Convention passed the Constitution and sent it out to be ratified they used the new standard for the amendment process of 9 states instead of 13. In other words they did not abide by the Articles of the Confederation rules but the new amendment process in the Constitution that had not yet been ratified
So, in an Article V Constitutional Convention the amending process itself can be amendedpossibly changing the requirement for ratification from the currently required three-fourths of the states to something else...maybe two-thirds or 50% plus one.  Therefore the three-fourths of states required to amend currently in Article V is not really a fail-proof safeguard in an Article V Constitutional Convention because it can be amended and like the original Constitutional Convention the changes may be sent out to the states under a newly adopted amendment procedure which changed the number of states required for ratification.

Publius Huldah is a complete fake, that is not her true name, and her family was involved in criminal activity. 

She is a ding bat xyz- attorney at large.. at best....:)

She knows nothing at all about Article V other then it would remove Congress from having all the authority over the states. By...Placing the Federal Government back under Constitutional Law, she needs to pack a bags hers old baggy backside also, and immigrate back to the EU.

"Neither the states not congress can control what goes in in the convention." True as to congress. (Yay) States can recall delegates. Also, RATIFICATION. Anybody can "write a new constitution." Heck, even Congress can do that. But nothing happens unless 38 states ratify it. People, we still have power at the state and local level - it is Washington that is disconnected. Should we wield that Article V power carefully? Of course! Should we refuse to wield it because Warren Burger and Publius Hulda didn't like Article V? Uh no. I personally know Mike Farris, one of the driving forces behind this Article V movement. Have known him for 30 years. The idea that he is a Soros/globalist stooge trying to harm America is as ridiculous as the idea that YOU are. Read Mark Levin's Liberty Amendments and get excited about fixing things beyond one election!

Joshua, I tend to agree with you. I do see this woman giving very weak arguments against ART V. I once heard a JBS lady say that ART V was just thrown in there. I have a hard time believing the Founding Fathers were careless to the point they just threw anything into the Constitution. The truth to me is that we will never know what would happen until it's tried. Like the Constitution itself. People then thought that group of guys were crazy. It's never been done, they said. If the 57 had followed that advice, we would not be living under this Constitution.  ART V is there because they felt the time would come when it was needed. Fear stops us from doing a lot of things. I have a friend who came into a sizable inheritance. BC he feared investments, he spent all his money and now he has 0. That may be what we have soon with the way we are not represented as mandated by the Constitution.

Well, given that there are already major violations of the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 10th amendments, I would say that we are already not represented as mandated by the Constitution.  It doesn't take another convention or changing the rules again.  It simply takes following the Constitution as it's already written.  Any time I hear that George Soros is involved, I know it's not out of the goodness of his heart that he acts and supports anything!

A Like button to you

except George thinks he is doing good. We don't. but he does. 8-)

Another LIKE button to you Eric.  Soros is one of many Satanic activists attempting to destroy America.  Karl Marx around the nid-1880s said America can only be taken down from within.

The problems of simply following the constitution as written and as amended is the interpretations by the congress, administration and supreme court.

In AZ we could not get rid of McCain at the last election.  Soros is under indictment in - I believe - Hungary.  The senate minority leader, house minority leader, past president and all the left loonies are not acting out of the goodness of their hearts.

Then there is the Muslim Brotherhood and the constitution should be amended to ban Sharia law.


I'm not at all sure he thinks! :)

George Soros is vigorously opposing the Convention of States effort to call an Article V Convention along with many other left wing groups.  Where did you get the idea that he supports it?  Oh, right, Huldah said so.  Well she couldn't be more mistaken and I suspect she knows that what she said about Soros wanting an Article V convention is untrue.
