ConCon – Throwing the Baby Out With the Bath Water!

UPDATE: 2015 Ted Cruz, presidental candidate in the 2016 election is in support of Mark Levin and his endorsement of the Conventions of States. Supporters need to do some further background research on this candidate and any others supporting a Con V.

Constitution 22058_1174502768326_1400774627_30402514_7946643_nFor the purpose of this article the Baby is the Constitution and the Bath Water (which is usually pretty dirty) is the ConCon, Convention of the States or whatever name you are giving it. I have written about my feeling on this several times before and now I’m angry.

We have hard-hitting Americans who influence the people of this country pushing for this monster – Mark Levin, George Soros, David Barton, Michael Farris, Mark Meckler and others and THEN we have organizations that are portraying themselves as Constitutional supportive Americans that are also supporting a ConCon. All of these people have an AGENDA as to why they want YOU to BELIEVE this is the thing to do.

To begin with, all these hard hitters in support of the ConCon might do well to actually learn what the Constitution says especially those like Michael Farris who calls himself a Constitutional lawyer.

NWO 4Have they ever told you there is a NEW Constitution sitting on the sidelines for them to vote on if they choose to? Have they told you that behind closed doors some of them refer to our country as a Democracy and not a Republic? The president and legislators may be acting like we are a democracy – even stating so, however according to the Constitution of the United States we are still a REPUBLIC and there is an order of the way things should be done. To call some of these people liars is a gentle word.

Let’s start with “MoveToAmend” an online website gathering signatures to push for their support of a ConCon. They have a great deal of organizations that are supporting their efforts and they claim they have 330,178 signatures to prove it.Look at their national leaders – do you really want this Occupy, Democrats and the likes of George Soros leading the pack FOR a ConCon?

The web page also states “End Corporate Rule, Legalize Democracy”. That should get your attention. They claim their organization was founded because of a Supreme Court ruling on January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.

It goes on to say, “The Supreme Court is misguided in principle, and wrong on the law. In a democracy, the people rule”.

REPUBLIC: That form of government in which the powers of sovereignty are vested in the people and are exercised by the people, either directly, or through representatives chosen by the people, to whom those powers are specially delegated.

DEMOCRACY: That form of government in which the sovereign power resides in and is exercised by the whole body of free citizens directly or indirectly through a system of representation, as distinguished from a monarchy, aristocracy, or oligarchy.

A republic and a democracy are identical in every aspect except one. In a republic the sovereignty is in each INDIVIDUAL person. In a democracy the sovereignty is in the GROUP. (In a pure democracy, 51% beats 49%. In other words, the minority has no right’s. The minority only has those privileges granted by the dictatorship of the majority.)

When you read it this way you can better understand why SOME want to get rid of our flag and show no respect for it that it is just a piece of fabric, but when you say the Pledge of Allegiance you are not only pledging to the flag, but is representation of the Republic.

Flaf and eagleI pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Who are the people (BOD) behind this Move To Amend group? Ashley Sanders, long-time community activist, works for Peaceful Uprising a climate justice organization and helped organize Occupy Freedom DC and Salt Lake City; David Cobb, a lawyer who devotes himself to full-time activism to achieve real democracy in the United States; Daniel Lee, is an active member of Occupy Los Angeles and InterOccupy. He participated in Occupy encampments across the country as well as done community organizing locally in Los Angeles; and George Friday who has a degree in political science, is a community organizer and works on social justice change. There are 6 more with similar backgrounds but I am not going to bore you – you get the picture!

So this group wants to use a ConCon to make the world a better place by becoming a democracy on the Progressive, social justice side.

Here comes the right side – or those who tell us they are Conservative and believe in the Republic.

Mark LevinMark Levin – I was a follower of Mark Levin however I cannot find a rational reason he is supporting/pushing the ConCon other than to back up what he stated in his book. My personal observation tells me that partially he has NOT done his homework and I came to this decision because of his loud support of Jennie Beth Martin and the Tea Party Patriots. Those of us that have been associated with Jennie Beth, her organization and the dirty tricks that were played on the American people (and still are) know things that most supporters do not. He also does not believe in Nullification – hum!

What Mark Levin said in his book “The Liberty Amendments” is simply not true. His reasoning of a “balanced budget” amendment actually would legalize Congress’ unconstitutional spending and it does absolutely nothing to control the debt. The original writings of our Framers actually told the states what to do when the government violates the Constitution – Nullification of the unlawful act is among the first of the recommended remedies – not one of which is “amendment of the Constitution”. States should nullify unconstitutional acts of the federal government yet most of the 50 states are refusing to do that! Why?

Federalist PapersIn Federalist No.44 ((12th paragraph from end), Madison says elect more faithful representatives! But we keep re-electing the same sorry people because we know their names and they are in our party. So then you go read Washington’s Farewell address and he tells you the political parties will be the ruination of the country because of the egos of men – those very same men who are trying to tell us we need a ConCon so they can change whatever they want into whatever they want.

Those of us who respect our Constitution don’t want to change it but require Federal and State officials to obey the Constitution we have or elect ones who will. The Oath of Office in Art. VI, last clause, requires federal and state officials to support the Constitution. This requires them to refuse to submit to acts of the federal government which violate the Constitution. The Oath of Office requires obedience to the Constitution alone. The Oath does not require obedience to persons, to any agency of the federal government, or to any federal court.

David BartonDavid Barton – My spiritual self cannot get a handle on his support of this ConCon venture, of which even his explanation is not clear – it’s like walking endlessly in a fog continually asking yourself ‘where did I miss the signs’, or ‘can I believe anything he has said’ and better still ‘can I still trust my gut instincts”? I have always had very good discernment – sometimes to a fault as people think I am “stuck-up” and it’s not that at all. I love people, but I never walk into a room until I have scoped it out entirely and find the best place to put myself. Actually this used to drive my kids nuts when they were growing up especially when it came to some of their choices in friends. The only reason I can find for some of these men supporting this effort is based on their religious belief following the the far right evangelical Dominionist religion and that would fit – See note on Ted Cruz as this is the religion he follows.

Michael Farris 2Michael Farris – He is referred to as a Constitutional Attorney (although this writer has found following KrisAnne Hall to be more truthful when it comes to constitutional law). He is the Executive Director of ParentalRights.org; founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) and Patrick Henry College. Home Schooler’s parents all over the country look to Farris almost as their protector and savior from the big bad wolves and he could be. But his total distortion in regards to the Parental Rights Act (PRA) is leading all parents down a path of parental right’s destruction.

The Declaration of Independence tells us our Rights come from God not the government; they are unalienable. The very purpose of the government is to SECURE the rights God gave to us and when the government seeks to take away our rights it is time to throw them out with the “bath water”. The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights enumerates 30 + rights and states they come from “man” (constitution or laws). Not God but Man! Wrong!

Now to take a look at Michael Farris website parentalrights.org and see what he says about our Rights. If you take the time to go to the web site you will see that once again it is being stated parental rights are coming from the Constitution and not God. That they are fundamental rights not unalienable rights. So now from what I read on the PR website they state:

Today the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is approaching a possible ratification by the United States Senate. This treaty, as harmless as it may appear, is capable of attacking the very core of the child-parent relationship, removing parents from their central role in the growth and development of a child, and replacing them with the long arm of government supervision within the home.

I will take Mr. Farris’ own words and turn them back on him. Yes the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a very dangerous document and must never be agreed to by the United States; however, Mr. Farris uses that as an example to his followers as the very reason to support his PRA when they are no different. Both state parental rights are coming from the government not GOD. I wonder if some of the very religious Home School families realize this.

Now Mr. Farris, for unclear reasons, has decided we should put our entire Constitution on the line in aiding those who wish to firm up our country as a Democracy or even worse Tyranny by government.

From Publius Hildah Parental rights: God-given and Unalienable? Or Government-granted and Revocable? 7/2-/13) Farris uses Supreme Court Justice Scalia’s Dissent in Troxel v. Granville (2000) using this to support his own theory that unless a right is enumerated in the federal Constitution, judges can’t enforce it, and the right can’t be protected. Scalia’s stated in part: parental rights are “unalienable and come from God and are from the 9th Amendment; the Declaration of Independence does NOT delegate power to the federal courts – only the federal constitution; It is for State Legislators and candidates for that office to argue that the State has no power to interfere with parents’ God-given authority over the rearing of their children, and to act accordingly. [The People need to elect State Legislators who understand that the State may not properly infringe God-given parental rights]; the federal Constitution does not authorize judges to come up with their own lists of what “rights” people have; and the federal Constitution does not mention “parental rights” so the federal courts have no “judicial power” over these types of cases.

In his closing, Scalia warned against turning family law over to the federal government:
“…If we embrace this un-enumerated right … we will be ushering in a new regime of judicially prescribed, and federally prescribed, family law. I have no reason to believe that federal judges will be better at this than state legislatures; and state legislatures have the great advantages of doing harm in a more circumscribed area, of being able to correct their mistakes in a flash, and of being removable by the people.”

Parental Rights are a state issue so again, maybe Mr. Farris should go back to law school. When he says: “4. The Parental Rights Amendment does not give the Judiciary legislative power but constrains the judiciary’s exercise of its existing power” his words are false. The PRA expressly delegates power to the federal and state governments to infringe on God-given parental rights.

Do you want this man being in charge of any part of a ConCon or even believe his arguments?

Mark MecklerMark Meckler – Last but certainly not least is Mark Meckler the former co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots (TPP) who at the time was drawing a monthly salary of $12K from grassroots donator’s to the TPP as well as Jennie Beth Martin and her husband. Meckler has moved on to forming Citizens for Self-Governance where he is the President. He states “their focus is on broadening the philosophical reach of the idea of ‘self-governance’ outside of the Tea Party movement”. So much for the former support of the grassroots guys!

His simple and mis-guided reasoning for the support of a ConCon is “By calling a convention of states, we can stop the federal spending and debt spree, the power grabs of the federal courts, and other misuses of federal power. The current situation is precisely what the Founders feared, and they gave us a solution we have a duty to use.”

This is interesting as we already have laws and the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights in place with a feeding of the Federalist Papers to oversee all of what he mentioned. The problem is the Politicians refuse to abide by any of them – so what is the point of adding more amendments?

Just what is the point gentlemen? Since you prescribe yourselves as Conservatives, what the hell are you doing lying in bed with George Soros!

SECRET MEETINGS INVOLVING CON CON

Now They Meet In Secret – There should be NOTHING in regard to a Con Con that is kept secret from the American people! We are talking about our lives, our very futures and those of our families. Once again we are being treated as less than dirt, a spec of dirt on their suit coats and we, the true Americans of this country are expected to sit back and just let this role off of our backs.

I laid out all the Constitutional reasons against these very actions last week! Did you really think the Progressive Neo-cons were not serious in once again using our Constitution as an end to their creedy and selfish ways?

Both parties, Republicans and Democrats alike will see this as a means to garner control in “their” mind with all of the decisions being made by those same creedy, selfish people.

This meeting of idiots is worse than the secret meeting of Bill Gates, Jeb Bush, Oprah and all the other Common Core Brainiacs.

New Threat of Constitutional Convention by Phyllis Schlafly December 6, 2013

This Saturday is not just about pausing to remember the stealth bombing of Pearl Harbor and the brave individuals whose lives were lost. This December 7th is also about wielding off an attack on the very thing those Americans were defending — the United States Constitution.

On December 7, 2013, at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon, there will be a closed-door meeting for hand-picked State Legislators from across the country. This secret meeting is designed as a pre-convention to prepare for what is being called “Convention of the States” (better known as an Article V Constitutional Convention or Con Con) for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution by using Mark Levin’s book, The Liberty Amendments as a blueprint.
american-hands
Article V of the U.S. Constitution delineates the methods for amending the Constitution, beginning traditionally with Congress, but also offering another method that has never been used: “The Congress . . . on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments . . .”

Some suggest that Article V creates a path to bypass Congress through a so-called “Convention of the States.” But, in reality, the only power the states have is the opportunity to submit an “application” asking Congress to call a convention. Hundreds of such applications have been submitted over the years, with widely different purposes and wording, but if Congress ever decides to act, Article V gives Congress the exclusive power to issue the “call” for a convention to propose “amendments.”

Since the only way to call an Article V Convention is through Congress, we can logically assume then that Congress will want to control the Convention by making the rules. We know that Congress recognizes this power from an attempt in the past by former Democrat Senator Sam Ervin (NC) and Republican Congressman Henry Hyde (IL) to pass legislation that would govern a Convention.Constitution 4

Those organizing this Mt. Vernon Assembly believe a Constitutional Convention is the answer to the political ills facing our nation. We understand that conservatives are desperate for a solution to this do-nothing Congress and the tyrannical, scandal-ridden Administration of Barack Obama. We agree with Mark Levin on a host of other issues, but The Liberty Amendments is like a candy jar for conservatives, proposing every feel-good amendment one can imagine, but it is lacking in political realities.

The reality is that conservatives have not won a national election since 2004. The reality is that the one who controls the gavel will rule the convention. The reality is that liberals would love nothing more than to put the U.S. Constitution on a chopping block.

We know that this Assembly is born of the real frustration of conservatives who look with dismay at the obvious destruction of our fundamental liberties. But, unfortunately, the United States Congress is not composed of a conservative majority, and furthermore, neither are the majority of State Legislatures.

Instead of proposing that we subject the Constitution to this great unknown, why don’t these State Legislators start by forcing votes to reject federal funds and the strings attached, by opposing national standards such as the Common Core, by stopping the implementation of Obamacare, or by making strides to protect life and marriage?

If we cannot win a national election, or control our City Councils, State Legislatures or Congressional Delegation, do we really think that “We the People” will control a national Constitutional Convention called by Congress? The large liberal states in Congress will certainly have the votes to set rules. So, we can rule out the possibility that we could pass any of the amendments suggested by conservatives, especially those that Levin includes in his book.

do nothing congressFurthermore, those that currently violate the Constitution are not being impeached, removed from office, or prosecuted, so do we really think that rewriting the document is prudent of those trying to defend it?

Can we really entrust our Constitution to the political jockeying of Congress? Consider the importance of some of the critical rules the Congress will determine regarding an Article V Constitutional Convention:
• When and where will a Convention be held?
• How many delegates will each state receive?
• How many votes will each state receive? One vote per state like the original Constitutional Convention? Or, will delegates be apportioned by population giving large states more votes?
• Will the delegates be elected or appointed by Congress, the State Legislature, political parties, or the people?
• Will Governors, who will assume they should represent their states, be delegates?
• How will the President of the Convention, who will rule the Convention with his gavel, be chosen?
• Will members of Congress write themselves into the Convention rules as delegates?
• Would it be wise or possible to hold the Convention in secret like the original convention to minimize the power of the media?
We must face the reality that an Article V Constitutional Convention could jeopardize our most basic liberties enshrined in the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Consider this: Suppose that at a strategic moment during the Convention there is a horrifying tragedy like a public shooting, with all of the emotion and attending media hysteria. Our Second Amendment right “to keep and bear arms” could be at serious risk along with many other Constitutional liberties.

Furthermore, after the amendments are written, can we be assured that State Legislatures are strong enough to refuse to ratify any egregious amendments that might be passed by the Convention? Did not three-fourths of the State Legislatures ratify the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments that give the Federal Government incredible power that they wield over Americans today?

We agree that the United States Constitution is in jeopardy, but the substance of that sacred document is not the problem. The problem is the elected officials that refuse to honor, defend, and uphold the principles and laws set forth by it.

The idea of a Constitutional Convention is not only a bad one, but it is a distraction from the real task at hand — winning elections. We do not need new amendments to the Constitution. Our Founders gave their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to establish this land of liberty. We need Americans to do the same and return to the original, founding principles of our great country.

TO CON-CON or NOT!

TO CON-CON OR NOT!

American’s as a whole don’t have much time left as Americans as our liberties are being stripped away, little by little, piece by piece on a daily basis.

Our legislators, although mostly responsible for the mess we are in, will try to tell you they can control this – but wait! State legislators have for years voted against calling on Congress to convene an Article V convention over the past several decades because of the “lack of control”.

Advocates claim they can control such a convention and it would be a “limited” convention. Limited in what way and by whose leadership?

All over America parents are finding their wishes and desires for their children being ignored. We ask our legislators not to sign treaties among other things and they ignore us. We are seeing legislation that should be left to the State’s being taken over by the Federal government. I believe this is happening because of the $$$$ pouring into certain people’s pockets rather than the “good of the people as a whole” being their primary consideration. This is being perpetrated by both men and women on both sides of the political halls. We Americans are finding it harder and harder to tell one from another.

Why do I say that? Because History, (you remember that don’t you?) is repeating itself and we are following the same old dog down the same road “making the same mistakes” over and over again about everything that is being legislated – and what do you get? The same results – sometimes even worse!

Over the past fifty plus years America has been on a course of destruction not only by the leadership of elected leaders and their egos, but those from outside our boundaries who wish to erode our very life, liberty and existence.

I believe it is time for the American people to really focus on the 2014 ballot boxes and make the commitment to replace any elected official who has been involved in bringing this country to her knees in the name of Money, Power, Control and the 21st Century! And that will be almost all of them, both parties, no matter how long they have been elected.

The talk about a “Constitutional Convention or Convention of the States” (Con-Con) quite frankly frightens me to death. The part that bothers me the most is the total lack of control on our part – the taxpaying “non-delegates”.

gas on fireThere is a strong surge in this movement and I can only hope it is because “they” believe they are doing what is best for America but they haven’t done their research. The actions they are planning on taking if they garner enough support is like “pouring gasoline on a full-fledged fire”.

If our elected legislators were doing their jobs in representing us we wouldn’t even be having this discussion. There would be no need for a Con-Con. Congress has allowed the president to rule our country and legislate by Executive Orders along with defiling the very existence of the Constitution on a daily basis.

Our Constitution sets the “agenda” for the federal government. The agenda the Constitution sets restricts the federal government to war, international relations & commerce; and domestically, the establishment of a uniform commercial system: a monetary system based on gold & silver, weights & measures, patents & copyrights, a bankruptcy code, and mail delivery (Art. I, Sec. 8, cls.1-16).

And because NONE of the House Republicans seem to know that our Constitution sets the agenda, and they also don’t know that our Constitution enumerates the powers delegated to the President, they are allowing Obama to carry out his “agenda” to transform our Country into a fascist dictatorship.

The powers of the President are “carefully limited” and precisely defined by our Constitution. In Federalist Paper No. 71 (last para), Alexander Hamilton asks the question:

…what would be feared from an elective magistrate of four years’ duration, with the confined authorities of a President of the United States?

The answer to Hamilton’s question is this: There would be nothing to fear if Presidents obeyed the Constitution, but he doesn’t obey it because the dolts in Congress don’t make him obey it!

The granting of the “executive power” to the President is not a blank check giving him power to do whatever he wants. The “executive power” is merely the power to put into effect – to implement – those Acts of Congress which are within Congress’ enumerated powers.

So now we are back to the fact the current president of the United States is “usurping” his authority according to the Constitution of the U.S. However, Congress is ignoring this fact and “allowing” him to continue with these actions on his “Friday afternoon Executive Orders”. This country is being run by edicts or Executive Orders rather than legislation.

We as taxpayers have seen our elected officials, both locally and nationally, over the last 20+ years totally ignore our wishes and desires. Why would any smart, logical thinking American believe that we could put our trust in something as important as this with our legislators being the ones to pick the delegates to represent us? There is no guarantee in this process. We already have a “cart running loose across this country without a horse leading it” – who do we think is going to be in control of a Con-Con?Horse after cart 2

Most conservative proponents of a Con-Con have claimed that they only want to bring on a constitutional convention for the limited purpose of proposing one or a few amendments, such as a balanced budget amendment, a national debt relief amendment, term limits, etc. We have been told any such constitutional convention would not be limited as to which amendments would be considered, how they would be changed, which one’s would be eliminated and therefore it could become a “runaway convention.”

And will they take a vote from the voters as to what Amendments they want changed or in regard to any new ones – the answer to this is NO! Prior approval – NO!

In recent years one prominent Con-Con proponent argued that in a close historical study of how states choose and instruct delegates to various conventions in the founding era including the Constitutional Convention of 1787, and how these conventions were conducted, proves that there is no danger of a runaway constitutional convention in our day.

representationThis argument is not very persuasive given in 1787 all of those men participating were NOT politicians, had no alternative agenda’s and were forming a new government and country. That is not the case today. Ruled by POLITICIANS rather than PATRIOTS, the majority of our elected officials are serving self and not the people.

How can we be sure that the customs and procedures of 200 years ago regarding constitutional conventions will be adhered to today when large portions of the Constitution itself are no longer being followed? In fact, many of our elected officials tell us the Constitution needs to be changed, eliminated, is out dated, not for the 21st Century and that we need to start over!

Our reigning president is supposedly a “Constitutional Attorney”. They say he taught Constitutional Law at the Chicago School of Law but there is no proof of that. I don’t even believe he ever took any classes in college. Given Obama’s refusal in adhering to the accepted formality of releasing his college records, his whole background to me is a sham. I’ve had a feeling that Obama had stand in’s for his lack of personal attendance and it was they who secured his college degrees. I’ve always felt that Obama is a manufactured man. This theory would certainly support no one remembering him having been at Harvard Law School.

And it has been widely reported he is the only person to have ever been the head of the Harvard Law Review and never written a paper. He even lied about having written his own book – Bill Ayers did, but then Bill Ayers and he were not friends just causal aquaintances.

Frying pan into the fireAre you really willing to trust those governing us today to “appoint” delegates to follow OUR wishes to be in “our best interest” or the wishes and desires of the POLITICIANS? We know things are not right, but jumping from the “frying pan into the fire” is never a good idea – especially when you are doing it on blind faith.

One of the “evils” Levin and his cohorts claim would be eliminated by an Article V con-con is the runaway federal spending spree. In fact, Nick Dranias and others have pushed for a con-con that would be empowered specifically and exclusively to consider a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA). Why?

The law requires that, by the first Monday in February, the President submit to Congress his proposed Federal budget for the next fiscal year, which begins October 1. Through the budget process, the President and Congress decide how much to spend and tax in any one fiscal year.
But this has not been done because of pure POLITIC’S! So how is a Con-Con going to solve this problem? At this point in history, all of this is nothing but words and promises.

Let’s look at the promoters of this. What could possibly be the motive for Levin, Hannity and some others for pushing for this? These people have all kinds of researchers at their disposal and they cannot see the danger this would impose on an already damaged country on the brink of Communism imposed by most of those we are expected to trust? Americans may not all be awake, but they are not stupid!

Why instead are they not promoting Patriots for office and thoroughly “cleaning house” of all these long sitting POLITICIANS who could care less about the American people? Because they are part of it! Today they crucify any Patriot that tries to stand up for what is right.

On page 14 of “The Liberty Amendments” Levin quotes from James Madison’s Notes on the Constitutional Convention as to Col. George Mason’s forceful argument on September 15, 1787, in favor of adding a provision for the states to have the authority to call a convention for proposing amendments “if the Government should ever become oppressive, as he verily believed would be the case.”

Well, “if the Government has become oppressive”, (and it has) WHY WOULD WE EVER PUT THE VERY PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT OPPRESSION IN CHARGE OF CONDUCTING A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION????

Since the “Declaration of Independence” states “that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness” and since Article V provides a constitutional method for bringing about a convention of the sovereign people of the United States for achieving this, we have to agree that the proponents of an Article V convention have the right to pursue their goal of bringing about such an unlimited convention.

However, we must interject immediately, such an unlimited convention would be extremely dangerous to the Constitution, given the lack of knowledge and lack of commitment to the Constitution on the part of most of the voters and/or legislators who would determine the composition of the delegates.

The solution must be to bring the federal government back into compliance with the Constitution through voter education campaigns and state nullification laws.

Geo Washington 1I would like to remind you of what George Washington said about the egos of selfish men in his farewell speech. Do we have another George Washington in the wings? Probably – more than one – but the fear of retaliation by those currently in power is probably keeping them silent. Please read Washington’s speech more than once, keep it handy and re-read it and remember what our fore-fathers sacrificed to give us this great country and at the same time think about how our government is being run today.

Immoral, broke, with a lack of principals, and allowing other countries to tell us what direction we should be taking – that is where the majority of this administration want’s us.

Samuel Adams stated in 1776 the founders had done everything possible to make the idea of socialism and communism unconstitutional. “The Utopian schemes of leveling (re-distribution) & community of goods (central ownership of the means of production and distribution) are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the Crown. These ideas are arbitrary, despotic and in OUR government UNCONSTITUTIONAL!”

Think about it! This is one of the best reasons I now of “not to mess around with OUR Constitution! It is a form of protection of which the Communists have been slowly trying to abolish since its inception.

They knew the best way to do that was through our Education system and they have effortlessly been at it since the late 1800’s.

The John Birch Society (JBS) has opposed calls for a modern-day Constitutional Convention for decades and seeks to work through Congress for Constitutional amendments rather than through the state legislatures to amend the U.S. Constitution. Many view a con-con as a quick way to pass amendments they think will stop the big-government juggernaut. Why would politicians suddenly start following an amended Constitution after ignoring and violating the Constitution for so long? The remedy so desperately needed to return our country to good government is to enforce the Constitution, not amend it.

JBS CEO Arthur R. Thompson introduces the Stop A Con-Con campaign and explains its importance in this video.

Ask yourself the question, “Do I trust my elected legislators to do the right thing?” Be honest, if they were doing the right thing as we stand, you would have no need for a Constitutional Convention.

A quick fix with people you don’t trust taking the authority is never a good decision.
