Constitutional Convention?

Published:

This could turn out real bad, it would also explain the troop buildup on U.S. soil. Problem-Reaction-Solution.

They have cleverly used the so-called financial crisis (problem) to goad the state legislatures into demanding (reaction) Congress and the President follow fiscally responsible rules (as ifRoll Eyes). They are calling for changes to the Constitution to require this, but once the process is opened up, anything is up for grabs. They just pulled a stunt like this in Canada. The PM ticked off the opposition, by cutting their funding. They reacted by calling for a no-confidence vote. The PM dodged the vote by suspending parliament. Guess who that leaves with absolute power until at least Jan. 26, 2009. Can you think of anything else happening around that week?

Here are some of the possible results of a “run away” article 5 convention as described of by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger:

1. Total civilian disarmament.
2. Socialization of industry.
3. Confiscation of private property.
4. Torture of citizens.
5. Suppression of the Press and of Religion

In effect, they could toss out the whole thing - pesky Bill of Rights and all.

Here's what's going on in Ohio ---

Any changes to the federal (and most state) constitutions can be made with amendments. No need for a constitution convention. Be wary of those that want to write a new one (for some of the reasons time*treat listed above).

Too much time on their hands. Great post thanks for keeping us informed about the lunatic fringe.
