Yep–The Leftist Loons And So-Called “CONSERVATIVES” Alike Want To Destroy The Republic.
Every once in a while–far more often since Mark Levin decided to write a book on the issue–the subject of a convention of states comes up. This is seen by some people who call themselves “conservatives” as the best chance to rein in Federal power and bring control back to the states themselves. And they CLAIM that there wouldn’t be a “run away” convention–it would NOT overstep its authority–because of the 3/4s rule requiring a super-majority to ratify changes.
So, What’s Wrong With This Picture?
Well–WHERE DO I START? FIRST OF ALL, IT ISN’T JUST CONSERVATIVES PUSHING THIS LUNACY. THE LIST OF LEFTIST LOON AND SOROS FUNDED GROUPS ON BOARD IS HUGE. BTW–the YOUNG TURKS ARE FUNDED BY SOROS… AS ARE MANY OF THE GROUPS ON THAT LIST.
So any so-called “conservative” pushing this idiotic notion needs to RESEARCH THE OTHER SUPPORTERS. DIG DEEP. DO YOU WANT TO BE IN BED WITH THE LEFTIST LOONS?
Well, Politics Makes For Strange Bedfellows….
Why would conservatives want to do this? Because they are either constitutionally ignorant (usually the case) OR THEY ARE NOT CONSERVATIVES. To get some perspective here, we have to re-visit the big Hoorah over the GOP convention, and the “rules committee”. You see, when it comes to the GOP convention, THE RULES FOR THE PRIMARY HAVE TO BE ADOPTED BY THE RULES COMMITTEE FOR THE GENERAL. So until the GOP RATIFIED THE EXISTING RULES–The first order of business–they had the ability TO MAKE UP NEW RULES.
And guess what? THE SAME APPLIES TO A CONVENTION OF STATES. Because in reality, under the Constitution, the CONGRESS sets the rules, up to and including scrapping the entire Constitution itself.
Wow. That Doesn’t Sound Right…
BUT IT IS. In 1787, we had “Articles of Confederation”. And the original purpose of the “Constitutional Convention was to AMEND THOSE. But they weren’t “amended”–THEY WERE REPLACED. AND IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN. HERE is a link to the issues from a Constitutional point of view: CLICK HERE, AND READ ALL THE ASSOCIATED REFERENCES!
If this were such a good idea, would Hamilton have been against it? Would truly CONSERVATIVE SCOTUS justices have been against it? NOPE. They were against this because it is a perfect opportunity to lose everything we have left. Just as people freaked out over the idea that the GOP could change the rules in the middle of the game, people SHOULD BE SAYING NO WAY TO THIS LUNACY. Especially when you research the long long list of leftist loons supporting this.
Until we have drained the swamp–and even AFTER WE HAVE DRAINED THE SWAMP–the ONLY safe way to amend the Constitution is through the standard amendment process. Anything else is absolutely suicidal. SHAME ON THE SO-CALLED CONSERVATIVES/REPUBLICANS ON THIS BANDWAGON. Do your research.
