Levin on air: Washington will never change itself but a Convention of States will

Published in Blog on January 09, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Washington is not going to fix Washington.

That's what the respectable Mark Levin told his audience this past week as the House election for Speaker foiled to a 15th round of voting.

No matter if the 20 representatives that withheld their support for McCarthy were seen as inspiring or foolish to Americans, nothing significant will come from the four-day impediment in the long run, explained Levin. 

"These rule changes aren't going to fix a damn thing – may fix the House
for a period of time until the Democrats take it over. But in the end, it's not going to fix very much. I'm sorry," asserted Levin. 

In the short-term, change is possible within the House, but the House is not the only part of government and it's surely not the full extent of the Washington corruption.

"It certainly is a very good thing in many respects," Levin forewarned. "But not a lot is going to change because you have McConnell in the Senate, Schumer as the majority leader, and Biden issuing executive orders like he's Ho Chi Minh."

But as brought to the center of discussion by Levin, the Founding Fathers were brilliant in providing a way to call for a Convention of States through Article V of the Constitution. Explaining to listeners that the whole point is to bypass Congress, he detailed why this is the best chance at sidestepping dirty politicians on all sides of the political spectrum.

"It's all Washington-centric. The purpose of the Convention of States movement is it's not. It's state-centric and it's state legislature centric. Which is why it's so important."

When it's all said and done, changes will never come from Washington no matter what. The millions of COS supporters, volunteers and grassroots activists positioned across America understand this concept. 

"I got it," he added in reference to the publicity surrounding the Republican opposition to McCarthy. "But it's not going to be the be-all in the end-all that's being suggested to you either."

Listen to Mark Levin promote the Convention of States movement live on air and make sure to sign the COS petition below to help us get even closer in 2023 to holding an official Article V convention.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
