Article V Library
Recent pioneer thinking, scholarship, and experiences have provided a solid foundation for advancing Article V as a remedy for numerous constitutional issues. For pioneer thinking, Robert “Bob” Berry provides novel ideas in his ebook, Amendments without Congress: A Timely Gift from the Founders (2012). Here is an excerpt:
[Thomas] Paine’s words ring especially true regarding our present situation. As he observed, “there is something very absurd, in supposing a continent to be perpetually governed by an island.” How much more absurd is it today, the whole of our country’s land-mass and its 310 million inhabitants is ruled with an iron fist from a 68-square mile swamp along the Potomac.
For more from Bob Berry, here is a short video, where he is introduced by Professor Rob Natelson, a leading Article V scholar, at a Denver Article V Symposium on April 23, 2014.
ACF research and subsequent Strategic Initiative have drawn extensively from the excellent work from others in the Article V movement. Their research has been evidence-based and very useful in supporting the need for and feasibility of a convention of states. Although not comprehensive, the following information centers have been particularly useful for ACF efforts.
Although not specifically focused on Article V, Constituting America provides excellent educational resources on the United States Constitution.
