Article 5 of the constitution allows for it to be amended through a convention of states. If 3/4th of the states vote to amend the constitution, the amendment goes to each state for ratification. 3/4 of the state's hAve to ratify it for it to become an amendment.  This takes power from the beltway and puts it in the people's hands.  This is pushed by Mark Levin.  Rubio supports this.

Mark Levin is seriously a rough ridin' idiot who has no idea what this country was founded on.  I'm shocked you support him. SHOCKED!

They should allow Texas to do it contingent on the state paying back every single dollar of federal funds they have received.

Those "federal funds" come from the pockets of you and me working our asses off in the states.

Sorry but plebian anti federalists had jack crap to do with the founding and direction of this country.  Levin wrongly assumes the founders aligned with his political views and he blunders through the history of the development of this country to invent a new colonial past. 

And yeah, I guess I'm a living Constitution person.....because I like things like the 13th, 14th, and 15th, and the 19th isn't so bad.

You think Texas gets more federal money than its citizens pay? I wonder if that's accurate.

Also, lol at ignorant edna in this thread.

A few years ago I would have been against this.  IMO Congress no longer is representing what the majority wants them to do.  Examples term limits or a balance budget amendment.  I am peaverd that the representatives of large states block legislation.  Finally, Congress passes laws and the original intent is changed by the courts, regulators, or by executive orders using opinions of creative wordsmith lawyers.  Returning some legislative power back more to the grassroots doesn't seem so wierd anymore.

Edna, Mark Levin is a genius. You don't have to agree with him, but when you call people like him idiots, it makes you look pretty foolish.

Speaking of you looking foolish... Amending the Constitution and a "living Constitution" are two entirely different things. You're like a walking breathing facepalm.

"Living breathing" constitution is the most naive and childish thing ever.

It's a rough ridin' contract with amendment provisons. Hey man, pay your loan. Nah, it's a living breathing note and I dont like these terms anymore...

It shouldn't be overlooked that Edna listed amendments as examples of why he favors a "living constitution." Gonna have to add that one to the libtard HOF.

No, not really since most of the amendments and changes the right wants to make revolve around a government that is more intrusive and antithetical to freedom, see being able to marry who you want or have equal rights.  The part about them hating the constitution is that right now it limits their ability to inflict their religion and personal agendas on people so they want to change it in order to allow punitive laws against citizens (restrictive voting, no free contract of marriage, no equal protection for gender/race/religion).

None of what you just said is relevant.
