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?
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!!
