States’ Rights Advocates Eye Convention to Bypass Congress, Amend Constitution

From the article:

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.


“It has never happened before in the history of the United States,” said Robert Schapiro, dean of Emory University School of Law.

In an election cycle that has defied conventional wisdom, though, supporters of a convention of states believe right now may be the very best time to try something different.

My son called me this morning to tell me about this article. There are those who have never thought it possible that “prophetically speaking” there could be a Sunday Law enacted in our day and time. Preposterous? Hardly.

Could this set a precedence? I certainly think so.
