Convention of States

“The check is in the mail.”
“Of course I’ll respect you in the morning.”
“A convention of states will restore freedom in America.”

Only an idiot would believe any of these. They are sweet sounding promises that are nothing but lies.

Article V outlines how individual changes can be made to the Constitution. It requires three fourths of the state legislatures to ratify any amendment, making it very difficult to alter our Supreme Law. That was deliberately intended. Remember the ERA Amendment? It floundered in debate for years before it died completely.

A convention of states would not make individual changes to the Constitution. It would allow the document to be rewritten completely. Who do you think will be making those changes? You? Of course not. You probably don’t even know how many articles are in the Constitution. You are hardly qualified to make improvements to a document you don’t understand. Only the corrupt power-hungry in Washington will be there to enshrine their control over you in that document. That is because you are so easily swayed by a piece of paper. Once their collectivist ideas are written on paper, you will go along blindly because “it’s in the Constitution.”

Congress has a responsibility to declare war, but World War II was the last time they did so. That means that Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and numerous other examples are all unconstitutional military excursions being waged with your tax dollars, and under your presumed authority.

The Constitution explicitly requires gold and silver to be used as currency so that our money cannot be counterfeited. In 1913, bankers fraudulently created the IRS and the income tax, and the Federal Reserve Act granted a private corporation a monopoly on counterfeiting our money. This is the root cause of our economic problems, but very few people truly understand that.

The Constitution originally required Senators to be appointed by the state legislatures for the explicit purpose of preventing the federal government from assuming powers that threaten the authority of the states. The Seventeenth Amendment, also established in 1913, allowed the people to vote for Senators, eliminating an important check on the balance of power. Now we have a large House of Representatives, and a small House of Representatives, and our cherished republic was turned into a democracy. Americans foolishly did this to themselves. Since then, the federal government has grown exponentially, and newspaper articles now falsely claim that the supremacy clause in the Constitution gives the federal government more authority than the state governments. Nearly everyone believes this lie to be true because they have failed to study and understand the revolution that separated us from England. Keep in mind that the state governments created the federal government as their servant. It is illogical to assume that the states gave the federal government authority over themselves. Utter nonsense!

The Constitution isn’t badly broken, it is simply being ignored. It is being ignored because Americans are making an emotional decision with little or no understanding of the unintended consequences. The proper course of action is to enforce the document, not change it. Indict and jail the members of our government who casually ignore the oath they took, and violate your rights with impunity. The real question is, do you have the courage to do that?

You are the beautiful but naïve Snow White. The people in power are the evil witch, and a convention of states is the poison apple they are offering you. Do you really want to take a bite?

I’m with you, Michael. Excellent treatment.

As most of us know, the real purpose of the Second Amendment was not to allow hunting or even to allow personal defense.  It was to give the We the People the ultimate recourse against a tyrannical government.  Without the 2nd A, we can kiss the rest of the Constitution goodbye.

The Convention of States (COS) is an existential threat to the Second Amendment.  Think about that.

I’m just guessing, but I would bet my bottom dollar that this is the hidden, real reason collectivist-controlled state legislatures have voted to have a COS.  Don’t let it happen.  Contact your representatives today.
