Article 5 of the US Constitution

U.S. Constitution - Article 5
Article 5 - Amendment


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.

This means that the States can change the Constitution without the Federal Govt.'s involvement.

I understand there are several States inquiring about how to use Article 5. For example to nullify the income tax from the Federal Govt. and the Health care Bill.

I think it's going to get very interesting, at least I hope so...

That's a scary thing. To think that the Constitution would be so vulnerable with what we have in DC. When enacted, the convention CAN basically scratch the whole thing and start over. Don't think if it happened that there woundn't be a couple of billoin in special interest dollars floating around.

PSD- yea, I finally got one.
