It's counter-intuitive, but true. The Constitution needs to be amended in order to save the principles enshrined in it.
The Founders imagined a limited federal government -- limited both by the checks and balances within the federal government and by the power of the state legislatures.
But those checks have been eroded, especially over the last 100 years. Congress and the Supreme Court have empowered a fourth, unaccountable branch -- the federal bureaucracy -- to make laws and create policy. The executive branch has taken more powerful for itself than the Founders imagined, and the Courts have set themselves up as lawmakers and kings. And all three branches have all but eliminated the power of the states to check their actions.
That's why Ben Shapiro believes we need to call an Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that restore the founding principle of a limited federal government. These amendments can reinstate the balance of power between the states and the feds, and between the branches of the federal government.
