Although I favor adopting one or more amendments to restore the federal government to constitutional limits, I generally do not take positions on specific proposed amendments. My mission is to research our Constitution and educate others about it, including but not limited to the Article V amendment process.
Mr. Levin’s conclusion about the Article V convention process—that is a limited-purpose, state-driven procedure created by the Founders to prevent federal overreach—is, of course, correct. This is clear to anyone who has fully and impartially examined the historical record and the applicable law. I was gratified to see that Mr. Levin acknowledged my research, and that it helped him reach this conclusion.
More importantly, in announcing that conclusion, Mr. Levin has shown vision and courage. I’m sure he was aware that the angels of misinformation can be a difficult bunch. No doubt they are already harassing him. But he did what was right, and it is gratifying to see that he has encouraged other opinion-molders to do the right thing as well.
