What issue does article V issue in the constitution?

Article V of the US Constitution contains a most unusual option; unusual because it has never been used in the history of the country. Why? Because Congress refuses to obey this provision, which says that Congress "shall" convene a convention of state delegates with the power to propose amendments to the Constitution. The one and only explicit requirement has long been satisfied. Much more than 2/3 of the states have asked for a convention. In fact, over 750 applications from all 50 states have been submitted; they can be examine on the website of Friends of the Article V Convention at foavc.org.

How can the US Constitution be changed through amendments?

By Amendment.The US Constitution is the document by which the People of the US distribute powers among the federal government and the states. The People ratified it, and the People alone can modify it.Amendments can be proposed by Congress, and then the proposals are submitted to the states for ratification. Three quarters of the states must ratify a proposed amendment in order for it to become part of the Constitution. There is NO veto by any individual or group, including congress, the president and the supreme court.Less familiar to most is the fact that the amendment process can be initiated by the states themselves, without input or control from the government. The one restriction is that congress then tells the states that ratification will be determined either through state legislatures, or through special conventions in each state. This method is part of the original Constitution but has not yet been invoked in our history.
