You already know what I think about a constitutional convention from my post to you a few days ago...methinks it will eventually lead to CWII.
Then again, the Constitution does provide for a reset button. Maybe it's time to reboot.
Take care of yourself.
I wonder when that election will be... !:-O
As to CWII [surely you mean the 'War Between the States II'], I doubt the 'bamster has the guts to fight a war. Easier to sign a peace treaty and mutual defense treaty...
I didn’t appoint Roberts. GWB did go whine to him.
Lets see if the idiot right in this country can get past adopting the color red at the behest of the communist media first.
It's time for radical ideas, and the constitutional convention needs to happen ASAP.
34 states are required, don't know if we can get to that number.
The communists are currently in control of 15 State Legislatures.
1/3 off, 1/3 sleeping leaving 1/3 on patrol. 500 guys, one unsupported battalion, to patrol each county on average, that is a joke.
Is that a ‘popular election’?
He was voted out of office and refused to go so a large crowd removed him. He did not survive.
Nicolae CeauÅescu Was the guys name. Popular rebellion deposed him form office. The Army went to the side of the revolution and tried him and executed him and his wife. No vote. It was not the first time that I am wrong and will not be the last but I have learned.
You asked...there are more. The beauty of our system is we can overturn tyranny. I agree we are nearing the edge where that will be difficult, but it is more than possible...it is likely at this point.
We each must work to help overcome this democrat party tyranny...and the liberal Republican establishment.
That's why we need to get started. I actually think we will get to the number quite easily now. One thing is for sure in my mind. The establishment Republicans are hearing the chatter about a Constitutional Convention and they are concerned. Why do I get the feeling people like Eric Cantor and even Romney are actually quietly celebrating this decision? We still need to vote for Romney and try to win the triple crown in November but we must keep in mind this is a back up plan only. IMO, Amending the constitution by convention is the only sure way to reestablish limited government.
I just saw Eric Cantor say on Hannity "the ONLY" way to get rid of Obamacare is to elect Republican's in November. WRONG! Individual states can change the constitution and WE DONT NEED YOU TO DO IT!
Did you hear that John Roberts? How does bye bye lifetime appointments sound to you?
* * * Revamped security protocols call for biometric data collection, including fingerprint and retina scans, and a tunnel which combines multiple detection systems into one area (who knows how radioactive this will end up being):
The mainstream article above makes this development sound like a win/win scenario for everyone, painting biometric data collection as a matter of convenience, but it also reveals the true design of the system; to illicit voluntary subservience * * *
Arms Race Against the People?
When a country is quietly preparing for war, the first signs are usually revealed by a disclosure of armaments. If stockpiling is taking place without a warranted threat present from a legitimate enemy, there is a considerable likelihood of aggression on the part of that nation. America has gone well beyond the psychological process of militarization and has begun the extensive arming of particular agencies whose primary purpose revolves around the domestic.
The DHS, for instance, placed an order for over 450 million rounds of hollowpoint .40 cal ammunition in April of this year:
And it placed an order for over 7000 new semi-automatic combat rifles chambered in .223 (5.56 by 45mm NATO) immediately after:
500 guys skeeping watch on a few in every county gets many in the county to behave. Besides, many counties are not an going to be an issue and I suspect 1,500 nonsleeping guys can do a lot of damage in a county such as mine. We have about 200,000 people, of which maybe 2,000 would be active. With air vehicles and armor that starts to make those other 1,500 on more even ground. I am not saying we the people couldn’t win the fight, we would, but it won’t be such a cakewalk as some might think. Toss in some foreign blue pots and the numbers get tricky.
Agreed that DC is the Problem.
I posted this on another thread and it speaks to the Washingtonian problem.
No solutions to problems will ever come from DC, because DC is the problem.
All each election cycle is about is which bunch of degenerate crooks, cowards, con men, and liars gets to control and redistribute the money extorted by the IRS from us chumps outside the beltway, and how much of it.
It’s plain to see what is going on in DC to anyone who has ever spent any time there, the place is perpetually flush with cash, with hundreds of thousand of Federal Apparatchiks with huge smiles on their faces walking around drawing huge salaries, plus bonuses and pensions courtesy of us dolts in the hinterland.
What has the GOP ever done when they controlled the WH and Congress that materially changed anything, or made the Federal Bureaucracy smaller?
We still have the agencies like IRS, the Department of Energy, and Education, and EPA, and to boot, they established new ones like DHS and TSA.
Anyone who tries to starve the beast is politically assassinated by propagandists from the left and right, like Gingrich was over the Government shutdown at the end of his career in Congress and again a few months ago when he tried for the nomination.
There will be nothing coming out of DC other than a bigger hand in your pocket and more limits on your freedom.
The DC problem will not be solved politically.
The FOUNDERS had no intention of establishing Universal Suffrage and DELIBERATELY did not put a right to vote in the Constitution because they knew it would lead to the collapse before us today, and make no mistake about it, when the Social Security checks stop coming, there will be a collapse.
Universal Suffrage has been enacted via Constitutional Amendments, hell, the communists are even giving illegal aliens the vote by Executive Order.
Collapse and reset are the only way out of this now, and rotating the Capital amongst the States.
There is no greater threat to the freedom and prosperity of the American Citizenry than the Federal Apparatus in Washington DC, and anyone who thinks all we have to do to change things is send the “right” people there hasn’t looked at the situation from a logical perspective at best, or at worst, is self delusional.
Electing more Republicans will solve the problem, now that’s a hoot!!
That statement has NEVER been true. Only in a very restricted set of circumstances can it even be approximately and partially true that a country “deserves” the government it has. (E.g., every country that has ever been defeated in war and been occupies by hostile forces doesn’t “deserve” that government.) The danger of elections is that while it empowers a legislative majority who may have won by a slim margin, it defuses the ability of people to counteract its actions because “they were elected”, so just “vote them out in the next election”. This is such an indirect method against true tyranny that it will never work.
