David Barton explores the intricacies of Article V of the Constitution: Is a second Constitutional Convention on the horizon?

David Barton filled in for Glenn on Friday’s Glenn Beck Program, and it was an hour focused on the United States Constitution. The U.S. Constitution has lasted over two centuries and is widely considered the world’s longest surviving constitution. Why has it been able to stand up to the test of time in a way other documents have not? According to David, the U.S. Constitution has remained timeless because, unlike a system like the Code of Hammurabi, it is strongly rooted in a set of specific principles.

The primary focus of David’s constitutional discussion revolved around Article V of the Constitution. What does Article V say exactly:

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

State Senator Kevin Lundberg (R-CO) and State Representative Kim Koppelman (R-ND) joined David to talk about a new movement among many conservatives involving Article V. Though Alexander Hamilton believed a national government was necessary, he explained in Federalist No. 85 that the role of Article V was to provide the states a check against Congress. With that in mind, is a second Constitutional Convention possible?

When it comes to learning about and understanding the Constitution, relying on history textbooks and school teachers may not yield the most comprehensive understanding of the document for our children. But, as Sen. Lundberg explained, the Constitution is not difficult to read, so give your children a copy and allow them to learn about the government our Founding Fathers intended in their own way.

    A Constitutional convention is all but inevitable; one caveat everyone calling for it has to be aware of – the progressives, and the leftists, will do all they can to dominate such a proceeding and forcibly impose their insane ideology on it and thus on us.

      As the new dawn arrived and the new sun slowly rose, the peoples of the world started to realize that their darkest hour had just passed and the new day was upon them.
      The sun shone a strong and powerful disinfecting light which warmed the world and revealed the true nature of the deceivers who could no longer find shadows in which to hide.
      Rejoice my brothers and sisters….the new revelation and epiphany is upon us!!!!!

        Seeing the destruction of our great country and constitution as a new dawn is something only terrorists , liberals, and the insane can achieve. If the blind would only will them selves to step out of the dark box of ignorant bliss and self imposed isolation, the events of today’s world would hit them like the proverbial BRICK in the face and there would be a chance to turn this country around and out of this death spiral Obama has so willingly put us in.

            Is that a trick question? The correct way to ask this
            question would be, “Mr. Common Sense, do you really believe the nonsense you spew?’ Then call him- Dumb Asshole! Also, I noticed you have a Black-Widow spider as your avatar. I love to ‘kill’ those things. I have probably killed about 30 adult females, 20 males this season, along with all their babies. My point is to make an example of ‘nonsense’. Just so a person of your vivid understanding could begin to view others looking them in the face, instead of imagining everyone in a bowed-up position, remember that in reality, this isn’t the case. Obviously your question, as the example, lends everyone a clear mental picture of the poop in your mental clarity. Irritating isn’t it.

          • HP McLovincraft

            No, you are wrong. On many counts. This is an interwebs comment board. The question was for the entire peanut gallery.

            Also, it’s a Wolf Spider, not a Black Widow. Does killing little creatures make you feel like a big strong man? I much
            prefer capture and release. Although, to be fair, you aren’t as stupid as the jackass who first said it was a fly, and then insisted that spiders aren’t animals.

            What does ‘imagining everyone in a bowed-up position’ even mean?

            Your final sentence should read:
            Irritating, isn’t it?

            Man, y’all are same lame ass, dumb motherfuckin’ bitches.

        Is this metaphorical or an actual, physical promise? Are you anti-Tea Party people pro- or anti-sodomy? Please clarify! You use the term “tea bagger” in a pejorative sense even though the most-loyal Democrats are very pro-sodomy; and most actual tea baggers are Democrats. If you are going to “fuck us up the ass,” is that good or bad? I’m confused as Democrats support tea-bagging and all other forms of sodomy!

        • HP McLovincraft

            http://theweek.com/article/index/202620/the-evolution-of-the-word-tea-bagger

            Was President Obama speaking derogatively when he referred to the Tea Party as “tea baggers”? That’s the topic of some debate after a review of Jonathan Alter’s book,The Promise: President Obama, Year One, revealed that Obama used the term in November 2009. The grassroots movement didn’t always consider “tea bagger” a slur: Early Tea Partiers innocently embraced the term until they discovered its vulgar connotations (see also the 1998 John Waters movie Pecker). In a twist, some conservatives have recently advocated that the word be reclaimed. Here’s a look at the evolution of the insult:

            Feb. 27, 2009
            At the first anti-stimulus “New American Tea Party” rally in Washington D.C., a protestor carries a sign reading “Tea Bag the Liberal Dems before they Tea Bag You!!” The Washington Independent’s David Weigel calls it “the best sign I saw.”

            March 2
            Americans for Prosperity, an anti-tax group, is one of the first Tea Party organizations to advocate sending tea bags to elected officials to protest the stimulus package. Several other lobby groups follow suit.

            April 1
            Several Tea Party protest sites encourage readers to “Tea bag the fools in DC.” Jay Nordlinger at National Review Online later admits: “Conservatives started [using the term]… but others ran and ran with it.”

            April 9
            Rachel Maddow is the first to mock the Tea Party’s use of the phrase on her left-leaning MSNBC show. “Even Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina is getting in on the hot tea-bagging action,”she says, stifling laughter. (Watch Rachel Maddow joke about the “tea baggers”)

            April 13
            David Shuster, filling in for liberal commentator Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, also makes fun of the phrase. “While the parties are officially toothless, the tea-baggers are full-throated about their goals,” he says. Jeff Poor at the Business and Media Insitute says that the MSNBC comments are “lost in juvenile criticism and ignoring the reason there is discontent from the conservative base”

            April 14
            Anderson Cooper, on his avowedly non-partisan CNN show, makes a similar crack, but later back-pedals, calling his remark a “stupid, silly, one-line aside” that was not meant to “disparage legitimate protests.”

            September 10
            Badges with the message “Proud to be a Tea Bagger” are still on sale at Tea Party events, according to an article written later in the year.

            November 10
            A report in The New York Times claims the President called Tea Partiers “the teabag, anti-government people” prompting the blog Redstate to respond: “Sexual innuendo is inappropriate in political discourse. The Left and their media tools need a soap bar sandwich to clean up their act.”

            December 7
            In an article for National Review Online, Jay Nordlinger notes that the word is being used so regularly, it is beginning to lose its pejorative association. “‘Tory’ and ‘Whig’ were put-downs when they originated,” he notes, and “‘Yankee Doodle’ was none too nice.” However, he suggests conservatives should continue to oppose the “lowdown term.”

            April 14, 2010
            Prominent conservative Andrew Breitbart posts a video on the site Big Government in an attempt to reclaim the term. “I’m Proud to be a Tea Bagger” currently has over 90,000 views.

            May 4
            In his book, Alter quotes Obama saying that GOP opposition to the stimulus package “helped to create the tea-baggers.” Grover Norquist, president of the Americans for Tax Reform group,compares it to the pejorative use of the N-word.

When 56% of this country wants Obamacare go.

    David Barton talks about the Constitution being the greatest thing, but then wants to alter it. What?

    The Constitution doesn’t need altering, it needs to be obeyed. It’s the same argument against those who would rather legislate more gun laws than enforce the existing laws.

    The real problem is We the People, not the Constitution. If We are not following and enforcing the supreme law of the land now, then why would We after some more meaningless laws are passed?

    Once a Con Con is called, anything can happen. The majority can throw the whole Constitution out, or they can add very badly written Amendments that undermine the republican principles of our Constitution. The RINO’s and Democrats can easily join forces and become that majority.

    Phyllis Schlafly has written extensively about the extreme dangers of a Con Con/Article V Convention at her Eagle Forum:

    http://www.eagleforum.org/topics/concon/

    Also, Publius Huldah soundly refuted Mark Levin’s book “Liberty Amendments” where he is also calling for an Article V Convention, aka Constitutional Convention:

    http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/2013/09/15/mark-levin-refuted-keep-the-feds-in-check-with-nullification-not-amendments/

    “No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor
    can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.” ~Samuel Adams

      • The Blue Tail Gadfly

        “Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a
        people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of
        morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No
        free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any
        people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance,
        frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental
        principles.”

    @BlueTailGadfly:disqus Don’t really understand the difference between a CON CON and a STATE CON do you?
    IN ART 5 the STATE LEGISLATURE (or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments) call the shots…..IF they are PROGRESSIVE already, OUR country is GONE already.
    MARK LEVIN proposes the conservatives can propose amendments, BUT two thirds of the states have to AGREE JUST to PROPOSE any ( BTW Mark Levin wants the 17th put back to where the LEG decides SENATORS, not popular vote of the people of said state. THIS WAS ORIGINALLY THE WAY IT WAS, and when it was changed by the PROGRESSIVES in the early 1900s, it brought on the progressive entitlement state culminating in NOW what we know as OBAME and OBUMMERcare. Pretty much the final nail in the coffin.
    Another ML RADIACAL (/sarc) suggestion is term limits with a total of 12 years to serve. Almost ALL conservatives want that and could pass in time by three fourths of the states if we have control of that many.
    Phyllis does not know what she is talking about, and yes a CON CON where our present CONGRESS decides who does what would surely screw us until the end of time.
    THIS ARTICLE V option BY-PASSES our current crop of WASHINGTON DC idiots and puts it in the hands of the people and the PURE State leaders. You know, the ones WE are electing now who don’t like ABORTION and VOTER FRAUD !!!!!
    WAKE UP AMERICA, we may have to do this to stop the PROGS, and it may take a long time. It took them (PROG COMMIES) 100 years to almost discard the CONSTITUTION, so now we have to battle back to our last breath and make it RIGHT !!!!

      You could have replied directly to me, but I can see why you didn’t.

      You can call a Constitutional Convention by whatever name you want, that doesn’t change the fact of what it is.

      BTW, you forgot to include The Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) that Mark Levin supports along with many other wolves in sheep’s clothing.

      Have you ever read the BBA? To sum it up, it would legalize current unconstitutional spending.

      http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/category/balanced-budget-amendment/

      FWIW, when a book of similar nature to Mark Levin’s “Liberty” Amendments came out a couple of years ago pushing the BBA also, Judge Robert H. Bork referred to that course of action as, “conservatives reaching for bromides to palliate their sufferings”.

      The Repubs should be argueing fiercely right NOW for a nationwide standardized photo ID for voting in National and State elections.
      The old argument by the Libs that this would be discriminatory to the poor and the elderly wouldn’t play well anymore since, why then isn’t enrolling for Obamacare then also descriminatory on the same grounds?
      1) Consider: typical access and knowledge of the internet by the poor and elderly..
      2) Consider transportation issues to an ‘enrollment center’.by those who can’t drive for one reason or another
      3 ) Consider the verification of ID being used by Obamacare RIGHT NOW over the telephone…..How TF do they really know who anyone’s real ID is?
      Driver’s licence maybee? or SSN? I’ll bet it is so.
      So why not NOW for voting too?!!!
      Fraud, Fraud potential everywhere……LET’S DO EVERYTHING possible to insure a fair, impartial, and non-fradulent vote tally in 2014.
      Retain the House of Reps, Flip the Senate to Repub, Impeach Obama, Repeal 100% of the executive orders since 2009, Dismiss the Zarrs, the list goes on but these things CAN BE FIXED!

    Constitutional convention will not work. There are only two ways to save the American way of life. One, divide the country into different countries like Europe. Then everyone with their own ideology can live in their own country. Second, collapse the existing system and rebuild the country from scratch. America needs rebooting. Now, there are many who want the country to collapse so that they can reconstruct it based on their vision. George Soros is one of them. If you read our nigger president’s books, he too wants to collapse the American government so that it can be fundamentally transformed. Besides factionalization, collapsing the system is the only way to save the entire Union. It is important that the right people rebuild the country and that we take the opportunity to eliminate the undesirables. America is collapsing because of political correctness and multiculturalism. America is no longer culturally homogeneous. There are different types of Americans today. This is why my colleagues and myself have formed the National Socialist Democratic American Party(NSDAP). We are over a million strong and are composed of the silent majority. The NSDAP will be there when America collapses to restore the Union to its former glory.

          one uncle, a waist gunner (according to his letters home) in the Eighth Air Force, went down in a B-17: two younger uncles lied about their age and made it into the Navy and somehow beat the U-boat torpedo odds on North Atlantic transports; dad served in the Army medical corps in the Pacific and remained active in the reserves for over 20 years. I am sure your family members had more than a few stories to tell– it was a different generation for sure; and it is not likely we will see another like it.
          I think you just have to read a little to know about the Middle East connection and Hitler–one of a few anti-Christ figures of the 20th Century. If mclovincraft has done that reading, and has a point to make, it would be useful if he could make it in a less repulsive way.

            OK, I went to college too bud. Studied a fair amount of history there and after. Know all the war profiteering, anti-semitic American Industrialist stories, theories and facts alleged. There are historians who also have more nuanced views of Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh and the rest. The entire educated elite of Europe and most of the United States were anti-semitic. That it took so long for the people in the United States to get it about Nazi Germany is astounding to me; but outside the Jewish community, very few cared. The story of the enigmatic William Todd, ambassador to Germany in the 30’s is instructive in that regard. In the Garden of the Beasts is a quick read if you have not read it.
            My family fought in WWII. Perhaps you are one of those libertarians who believe that was rigged and we never should have gotten involved. That is your perogative. It is my perogative to honor my family, and stand against any hate mongering American Nazi in the modern era. Those false Americans, hiding behind the 2d Amendment and distributing racial hate, while organizing their own militia, have to be stopped. Hopefully, you and I can agree on that idea.

        • HP McLovincraft

          Nazism, or National Socialism in full (German: Nationalsozialismus), is the ideology and practice associated with the 20th-century German Nazi Party and state as well as other related far-rightgroups. Usually characterised as a form of fascism that incorporates biological racism andantisemitism, Nazism originally developed from the influences of pan-Germanism, the VölkischGerman nationalist movement and the anti-communist Freikorps paramilitary culture in post-First World War Germany, which many Germans felt had been left humiliated by the Treaty of Versailles. Prior to the emergence of the Nazi Party, other right-wing figures had argued for a nationalist recasting of “socialism”, as a reactionary alternative to both internationalist Marxist socialism and capitalism.

You would only be ahead if and only if there were a clear and definite right for any and all states to leave the union based on the simple majority of the individual states.

      Whatever, Dumbass. Sharia Law has already been written into an executive order and it will take effect on December 13, the Muslim holiday of Shazamadam.

      Get your bacon, while you can.

    We need the state governments to set up eminent domain when the feds decide to
    abandon their posts in the next shutdown .
    We could have thousands of volunteers ready to take over running parks, roads, monuments and other neglected business willfully left undone.
    The citizens own this country. Not the federal government. If the feds can’t do it
    WE WILL !!!

      You dumbshits can’t even get a decent circle jerk going. Stick with keeping Obama a one term president as a goal.

    Mark Levin has been talking about this for months and wrote an excellent book entitled “The Liberty Amendments” explaining it in detail.

      Mark Levin is a jackass. Listen to him or read his books and it will make you stupider. Which will suck, because clearly you are fucking retarded.

    Time of this earth is short and everyone who is not a child of God should really get their house in order. We serve the Lord in our home and glad to be considered one of God’s sheep. If you aren’t aware of time just look around and you can see how everything is changing so fast. Tell me one thing that has stayed to same of the last year – we are learning and moving faster than anyone can keep up. Won’t be long…better be prepared….

    A constitutional convention called at this time will be dominated by liberals, and play right into their hands? Whether congress or the states call for such a convention, congress makes the rules and sets the agenda just as when the Articles of Confederation were replaced with the Constitution, against the direction of those calling for the convention. Fortunately, at that time, most of our founding fathers were moral Christians. That has not appeared to be true for many years.

    The problem is not the Constitution, it’s with most of those who have sworn to defend and protect it, then fail to do so. If they won’t uphold their oath of office to the current Constitution, what difference will it make to change it? That will
    only remove what little leverage America’s freedom loving people have
    left. Freedom isn’t free.

    We don’t need a Fourth Reich, so please stop promoting a convention that would end up creating one. Educated voters, and accountability both seem to be in short supply.

    Be very careful of a Constitutional convention. It could come back to bite you.

    Is anyone foolish enough to believe that the so-called Convention of States would be limited to a few feel good amendments? This is exactly what the liberal/socialist/progressive/communist want. Great way to con the people into willingly giving up their rights. The Constitution isn’t broken, the men and women in congress, the SCOTUS, and the Administration are the broken ones, along with half the voting public who believes that it’s ok to take from the property of some to redistribute to others.
