Article V May be the Only Way to Prevent an Actual Civil War

Marjorie Taylor Green representative (R) from Georgia said in a Tweet, "We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government,” The mass media took this as Green calling for a civil war between states; her point although crudely tweeted pointed to a good deal of differences the states have with each other.

Many conservatives believe the Federal Government has overstepped its boundaries as far as regulations and restrictions. The Biden administration thru their use of executive orders has single-handedly caused the cost of fuel to rise to record levels. Furthermore, their use of the Justice Department to target parents labeling them as Domestic Terrorists, Targeting journalists for doing their jobs, such as using the IRS to go after Matt Taibbi for his work on the Twitter Files, as well as many other examples of an over-reaching governmental authority has the country in a tail-spin.

What is a workable solution? What solution should be presented as an alternative by which both conservatives and liberals can work together to limit the overreach of the federal government? What solution would prevent an all-out civil war that may lead to bloodshed in the streets as it did in 1861?

The answer lies within the US Constitution. Article V of the US Constitution, "gives states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed."

Several historical figures have supported Article V or the process to call a Convention of States. Presidents, Journalists, writers, and historians. One of the most prolific supporters was Ronald Regan as he was a long-time supporter of proposing an amendment to contain runaway federal spending.

Nobel-winning Economist Milton Friedman was a supporter of enacting Article V to limit federal spending.

Other famous people in support of Article V are not limited but include, but are not limited to Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Washington, and Alexander Hamilton.

The United States while divided along the lines of a society that believes they are capable of determining their own destiny with little to no government interference, and those who want the government to dictate cradle-to-death policies. The Founding fathers who wrote the constitution addressed a legal means to address these issues without bloodshed. Article V Convention of States.

Whether or not Article V falls in line with our reader's opinions, we urge everyone to look at Article V Convention of States. Congress will not stop legislating or spending without a strong wake-up call; Given that the current administration is looking into packing the supreme court with more democratically aligned justices, such as Ketanji Brown Jackson, who would not define a woman during confirmation hearings, it is safe to assume the current administration is not looking for justices who can interpret the constitution, but rather Social Justice Warriors acting on behalf of the Democratic Party while legislating for the highest court in the land.
