Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
The inevitability that our government will continue its dangerous deficit spending, the states, as those that originally established the federal government, must seriously consider utilizing the Constitution's Article V Convention, in order to ratify an economic reform amendment.
To that end, the Liberty Research Foundation and the University of Central Florida are hosting the Article V Convention Conference, April 26-27. Financial experts will be on hand to present participants with the economic dangers we face due to Washington's irresponsible policies. In addition, constitutional scholars will present the Article V Convention as a method by which the states can reverse these policies in order to prevent a national economic meltdown.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote that if the federal government were to become self-destructive, it would be the right of the American people to alter it. In Article V of the Constitution, our founders preserved that right by allowing the states, upon a two-thirds vote, to hold an Article V Convention. Once convened, state-selected delegates can propose amendments which are sent back to the states where three-quarters must ratify.
"This is a perfect example of our founders enduring brilliance," said Loren J. Enns, president of the Liberty Research Foundation and author of The Sword of Liberty. "They provided us with a mechanism that the states may use to amend the Constitution if the federal government were to become irresponsible, as I believe it has with its deficit spending."
The general public is invited to participate in the UCF Article V Convention Conference. After attending workshops, discussion panels and listening to speeches, participants will be asked to decide whether to call on the Florida legislature to apply for the Article V Convention.
