Article V: An alternative to impeachment

First, Rush channels Levin...
RUSH: So there is impeachment to deal with a lawless president, a lawless executive. But there is another way, and it is right in the Constitution. It's right there in Article V of the Constitution. Mark Levin has written a book about it called The Liberty Amendments, and essentially, you should read the book. The book explains the entire constitutional process and also contains some new amendments to the Constitution, the purpose of which is to simply affirm the Constitution as it was.

It's a shame that we're at this point, but the Liberty Amendments are simply amendments to restate the original purpose of the constitution and just pound it into everybody's head what the Constitution is. Article V allows for the states to establish a constitutional convention for the purposes of dealing with circumstances such as we are experiencing today. If the Congress will not impeach, it's right in Article V: The states have the power, if they want to do it.
Then Levin lays it out...
On Wednesday's Mark Levin Show: It is common knowledge that President Obama doesn't care about the Constitution and has continually violated it. So when Speaker Boehner has the obligation to do something about it via the oath he took, and doesn't - what is the citizen to do? When our politicians refuse to use the powers bestowed upon them, such as the power of the purse - to stop the funding or certain government programs, or the power of impeachment but don't do so, where do we go? We're seeing the Executive Branch use more power than ever before with no consequences to it. We have the worst Presidential actions going on and Boehner and some House Republicans have already said that they won't begin the impeachment talk.

Mark says there's no alternative anymore, the only solution must be what the Framer's had intended, written about, and voted it into the Constitution. A Convention of States would bring the power back to the state legislators and ultimately the American people. Mark talks about what Amendments he would take up if he was a legislator and how he would go about getting them done.
From a balanced budget to term limits, and now to this, the sole recourse that the American People retain is right there in the Constitution via the States. At this point, Washington is beyond fixing itself. It's just not going to happen. It's up to each and every state to push their elected officials to take up the mantle and straighten out this pervasive federal tyranny and Article V provides the civil mechanism!
