A very dangerous move is underfoot in the Nebraska Legislature.  Senator Ebke introduced LR6 calling for an Article V convention “limited to proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress”. A hearing has yet to be scheduled -but in the meantime, it is important that you contact your Senator - and other Senators.

Why are some asking for an Article V Convention? People are understandably frustrated with the over-reach of the federal government and the tremendous debt being foisted upon our children and grandchildren. But - with a new President and many new Congressmen, we need to demand they enforce our U.S. Constitution - not call a new convention that will bring a re-write.  Unfortunately talk radio host and lawyer Mark Levin’s book, The Liberty Amendments, has been promoted an Article V convention as the last, one great hope for our Nation.

Levin’s book outlines eleven possible amendments to the U.S. Constitution that he touts as the “magic bullet” to bring our run-away government back under the control of the People. No doubt Levin means well and his proposed amendments do sound good, but in his desire to right all ills, Levin is failing to accurately read Article V of the Constitution.
