Gov. Scott of Florida has said he will abide by the law... we will see. I think I will write him.
Liberty = Risk.
America and Americans reject risk.
Military will put steel on target. They are just waiting for the target. Waco.
3140 counties. 1,477,000 Active duty military gives 470 military per county. 1,458,000 reserves gives another 450 per county. Double that for total local law enforcement = about 1,500 armed personnel per county.
A constitutional convention is the last thing you want since they are not limited in agenda. You'd have abortion enshrined, the ERA, marriage of any sort imaginable, single-payer, tax policy you couldn't fathom, etc., etc.
If ObamaCare was going to be upheld, this was the least awful, least damaging outcome.
“It is now a TAX and therefore easier to get rid of it. “
Except this isn’t about healthcare anymore. This is about the court saying the government has the right to reach into your pocket and take whatever is there as a tax for any reason.
Not all combat. Subtract support personnel (and navy) and the number shrinks.
It must be difficult living with a single digit IQ... you have my sympathy. You have not the slightest concept what I advocate.
We still have an economic collapse on our side. It will not be a peaceful vote that will overturn all this, but a Soviet Union style collapse which finally will.
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:
