The constitution can be amended in 2 ways, differing only in who writes the amendment, either the Congress can write an amendment or a convention of states can and either way it must then be voted on by the public and if it passes 2/3 of the states it becomes an amendment to the Constitution. A convention of states, unlike congress can only write a change in the law in the areas that the convention has been called upon. The proposed amendment can only work in 3 areas, they are Limiting the power of the Federal Government, Demanding a balanced budget amendment, and providing term limits for House and Senate Legislators. All things our elected politicians want nothing to do with, so they must be done by a convention of states. Click on the link below to be directed to their website to take action.

Perhaps it is the instructor in me but I am going to assign you some homework, in a college level class no less. Go to the website link below for thelibertybellenc.com for some outstanding information on the US Constitution. Dr. McMasters explains in very simple terms why the constitution was written the way it was and where we are today with the contract. By reinstituting the original interpretation the Federal Government could be brought closer to We the People, allowing us to cut it's immense size and cost, all the while providing better service as it could be tailored for each individual state. When you had a problem in school you went to the teacher, not the school board, in order to get better results. Another example would be if you have a problem with your hotel room you go and talk to the front desk, not corporate management. Check out her website.
