CITIZEN INITIATIVES, Charles Kacprowicz December 21, 2014
CK’s response to questions asked about the Countermand Amendment.
The President has no authority under Article V. He does not approve any resolution by Congress when sending a proposed Amendment to the States for ratification or the States when Applying for a Convention. This is why our Countermand Amendment has a great chance of success. Only 34 State Legislatures are needed to Apply for a Convention. Congress is the facilitator and is then required to convene the Convention as directed by the States. When the State Delegations at the Convention approve the Countermand Amendment, then it is sent back to Congress with instructions to send it to the States for ratification. Three quarters (38) of the States are now needed to ratify. Because our Amendment is non partisan and emphasizes States Rights and because there are 38 energy producing States, we have a very promising opportunity to see the Amendment ratified by 2016.
Congress does not sign anything regarding the Applications and Ratifications of the Countermand Amendment. The Application is not legislation, but a resolution to be adopted by State Legislatures only. Not even the Governor has authority under Article V. Congress is a facilitator, not a controller of the Article V process as some have foolishly argued.
If State Legislatures wanted to modify other parts of the Constitution, including changing the structure of Congress through Article V, they have such authority. However, it is extremely unlikely that the States would Apply or Ratify any Amendment that removes, or even changes, Congress or the Courts, or the Executive. Maybe removing regulatory agencies would be a possibility, or Statutes such as Obamacare, but not the three branches of the Federal government. Keep in mind, however, that the Countermand Amendment does not modify any part of the Constitution. It empowers the States to better use the powers they already have in the Constitution for the purpose of protecting States Rights, civil liberties and preventing unconstitutional encroachments on the States by any part of the Federal government. The Amendment makes it possible for the States to restore our Constitutional Republic. Very important!
Think about it, an Amendment that does not change the Constitution, but gives the people through their elected State Representatives the authority to stop Federal overreach while preserving all the inalienable rights we have in the Constitution.
