States' rights advocates eye convention to bypass Congress, amend Constitution
By Jonathan Serrie   FoxNews.com


ATLANTA –  What if a supermajority of states could override a federal law or Supreme Court ruling?

That’s just one idea being proposed by advocates of a “convention of states” to amend the U.S. Constitution.

"The American people are mad and they’re looking for a way to say, ‘No more,’” said Brooke Rollins, president and CEO of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, a conservative think tank. “Our founders, in their brilliance, gave us a tool to do that. And it’s Article V.”

Article V of the Constitution allows a minimum of two-thirds of the states to call for a convention to propose amendments, in turn going around Congress.

Won't happen!

States are bought off by Fed monies.

Also, states have been weakened by the 17th Amendment.
