Article V, Convention of States

It is exciting to see such an interest in basic constitutional principles, namely the Convention of States.

Thankfully, our Founding Fathers, having come from a place much like this has become, created a constitutional means to restrain the government if it overreached its jurisdiction. The Federalist Papers outline that the Constitution gives each part of government “constitutional arms” for its own “effectual powers of self-defense.” One of these arms of self-defense is an Article V Convention of States. It defies logic for states to refuse to use this tool since it was put there to help us with scenarios such as we have in DC currently.  It is also illogical to view the use of any constitutional provision as a threat to the Constitution.

I urge everyone to embrace this wonderful provision that our Founders left us, the Article V Convention of States.  It would do us well to remember the fact that these men put their lives on the line in order to escape government abuse, fully aware that if their great adventure failed they would probably be put to death for treason.  I believe we are now living under the same sort of abuse.   Go to conventionofstates.com

The problem is that dumb ass people that cry, keep putting the same ol re-runs in to office! Therefore, this will never happen. Plain and simple as that.

It is nothing more than a wish! While all the time the people of this country has let it's own down and has allowed the government to continue to screw it people!

" It defies logic for states to refuse to use this tool since it was put there to help us with scenarios such as we have in DC currently. "

I've been say this every since I read Mark Levin's book.

We have to inform people that Article V exists, and fight with the anti-Article V people at the same time.

The anti people are using scare tactics and any dirty trick that works.

We have a lot of work ahead of us.. We might not get the job done, until we have a lot of people die, because of a fedgov gone horribly wrong.



I hope I live to see it..
