NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Congress cannot fix itself; members have made it the way it is over the years.
Is there a way for the people to fix it? Yes, according to Mark Levin and our Constitution.
It is all contained in Article 5 of the Constitution, which outlines another way for the people to initiate constitutional change besides the amendment process., which is controlled by Congress.
It’s all in Article 5, which specifies that two-thirds of the states can call for a constitutional convention to return the federal government to the tenets written into the Constitution by our Founding Fathers.
If three-fourths of the states agree to the changes of this constitutional convention, neither Congress nor the president can stop those changes. And those changes would become part of the Constitution.
Term limits could be one change. Another could be requiring a balanced budget, downsizing this enormous federal government. There could be a checks and balances process in the new Congress and there could be 12-year term limits for the Supreme Court.
Of course, there are other changes that most constitutionalists can also come up with to return this country to its original policies including a limited Federal Reserve, a strong 10th Amendment process, the stopping of influence of PAC groups and unions and insuring this country is run by representatives of the people, not some political party.
What do other people think?
