Sarah Palin: Debunking the Myths of a Convention of States

Sarah Palin: Debunking the myths of a Runaway Convention of States

The following was originally published on – Cross-Posted by Convention of States Project on April 20, 2015 – It’s the transcript of a video published on the Sarah Palin Channel, which you can sign up to watch here.

Our Founders wisely created the option of the Convention of States in the Constitution as a tool in case the federal government came to disregard the will of the people. Now some pundits are using scare tactics to misrepresent the Convention and what it could do to the U.S. Constitution.

Sarah_Palin_Convention_Of_States_02.pngI’ve happily been advocating that America call a Convention Of States to propose amendments to rein in the Federal government.

This is an option that our founders gave us in Article V of our constitution.

They gave us Article V as an ultimate security check just in case the Federal government ever grew too large .. too corrupt .. too incompetent.

Well folks, we’re there!

The time for this idea is now!

That’s why State legislatures around the country are voting on legislation.

I first came to understand the need for a Convention Of States when I read my friend Mark Levin, whose best-selling book is The Liberty Amendments calling for a Convention Of States.Sarah_Palin_Convention_Of_States_legislators.png

It convinced me that the Convention Of States is the last recourse for Americans to rein in our out of control Federal government, because D.C. will never fix itself!

Every time I bring up this topic critics start painting this scary picture of what might happen if we call a Convention Of States.


Their biggest criticism is a fear that the delegates might disregard the purpose of the Convention and rewrite the entire Constitution.

Let me put their minds at ease.

There are four reasons why a Convention is safe.

Number 1 • The applications that the State legislatures are passing right now, define the topics to be addressed at the Convention. Anything beyond that scope is ‘out of order’.

Number 2 • State legislators send Convention Commissioners who are subject to instructions given by their State.

Number 3 • Lets just say for the sake of argument that reasons number one and number two failed. If they did, the Courts could declare their actions void.

Number 4 • Whatever amendments the Convention proposes will not take effect until three-fourths of the States ratify them.


That’s 38 States. By definition, if 38 States agree on an amendment it’s not runaway. It’s a mandate!

Here’s the bottom line.

We already have a runaway Congress and a runaway President.

The founders gave us Article V of the Constitution to stop them.

It’s time to use it!

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
