On his nationally syndicated radio show last Friday, host Mark Levin said that if a Convention of the States does not happen, children today won’t recognize America for what it is in 50 years.

Speaking about the Convention of the States on his Friday show, Levin stated, “It’s certainly not gonna happen tomorrow, certainly not gonna happen next year, but if it doesn’t happen, I’m telling you, in 50 years, your children will not recognize this country.”

Levin’s full comments can be seen below

“We had a few calls last night, as I do often, asking, ‘Mark, where do we go with this? Where are we headed? How do we save our republic?’ And I wrote an entire book on this called the “Liberty Amendments.”

“Remember the Albany Congress and the Stamp Act Congress and the First Continental Congress and the Second Continental Congress, how the colonies and then the states would meet, would meet to discuss what was taking place in the country, how to make it better?

 

“Well, those geniuses who met in Philadelphia after the Revolutionary War to replace the Articles of Confederation with an actual constitution, they put a provision in their constitution under Article V that provides two ways to amend the Constitution: one, through Congress. Two-thirds of both houses, proposing amendments to the states, three-fourths of the states or now 38 states having to ratify. And two days before the end of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, George Mason stood up – a delegate from Virginia, genius, brilliant – and he said, ‘If Congress shall turn oppressive, the only way to reform what’s taking place is through violence. We must give the people the power to address a tyrannical Congress,’ or in this case a tyrannical federal government. And they set forth the process in the Constitution, and the legitimate constitutional way is through the state legislatures – 34 state legislatures, coming up with virtually identical resolutions when it comes to the issues they want to discuss, calling for a meeting, a convention of the states, where they meet and they discuss what they want to do to get the original Constitution back, which has been rewritten by the politburo that we now call the Supreme Court, which still would require the same ratification process: 38 states, three-fourths of the state legislatures, either by the legislatures or convention.

“So there’s no potential whatsoever for a runaway convention since the states are in charge from beginning to end. This is how you address what’s taking place in this country. It’s certainly not gonna happen tomorrow, certainly not gonna happen next year, but if it doesn’t happen, I’m telling you, in 50 years your children will not recognize this country.”
