Mark Levin’s egotistical and wrongheaded call for a constitutional convention
Mark Levin, when confronted on his radio show with questions that indicate his call for a constitutional convention are wrongheaded, constantly hides behind insulting remarks [referencing the caller as an idiot, stupid, etc.] and panhandles political identifications [liberal, left-wing, socialist, etc.] which have no bearing on the questions asked. He also filibusters callers and prevents them from defending their position. This is how he avoids a sincere discussion regarding very real concerns which surround the calling of a convention under Article V.
It appears Mark Levin would rather put our entire Constitution up for grabs than diligently defend both its text and legislative intent which gives context to its text. I say this because, the countless sufferings we now experience are not because of defects in our written Constitution. They are a result of people like Mark Levin who are unwilling to defend specific provisions in our Constitution, an example being the reasons why the Founders demanded both representatives and direct taxes would be apportioned.
Mark Levin desires to re-write our Constitution to accommodate his personal predilections and beliefs. Are we to forget his egotistical “Liberty Amendments” which are a sophomoric and ill-advised attempt to accomplish, in several instances, what our original Constitutional already commands?
