Letters To The Editor

Regarding: Do you support a constitutional convention (Convention of States) that would have a stated goal of limiting the federal government? (Send additional emails to [email protected])

I was reading your article about a Constitutional Convention. Here is the major question that needs to asked of the people that oppose this and I don’t care how conservative you are. How do you get anymore “rogue” than what our criminal and tyrannical Federal Government is right now because I don’t think it is possible?

I think that the states can show a lot more restraint in putting forth laws that would actually help our Nation unlike what we have seen coming from the scum rat Communists in both Parties in D.C.! I say both Parties but I really mean the one party system we now have in D.C. Does anybody out there see any difference in the so-called two party system that we have had? Something has to happen drastically in our Nation if we are going to save “HER” and I think the Constitutional Convention is the one and only catalyst that can save us from the traitors we have up there in D.C.! Oh, by the way they should all be arrested up there for violating their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of The United States of America and its people.

I’ve been a proponent for a Convention of States for some years. I live in Texas and a person would think Texas would be leading the charge, not so. Very little actual political force up until now for a COS. I surely hope the 10th Amendment to the Constitution is included so it can be elevated to its rightful place.

Please let me know what I can do to help make this constitutional convention happen. We the people MUST act to bring the feds back in line and adhere to a constitution of the people, by the people and for the people. I can do direct mail; phone bank; news conferences; donations all at my expense. I want to help.

Of course I would support a Constitutional Convention. It’s constitutional, unlike so many other things happening today. I think we need more of this kind of action and less hand wringing and fear-mongering. Doing what we have the moral right to do is what created this country, so why should we now sit on our hands and do nothing? States have a right to convene, period.

I absolutely would not support a Constitutional Convention. I think it is far too risky. The problem with Washington is they do what they want regardless of the letter of the law, much less the spirit. Our problem is corruption, and a high-jacked Federal Government determined to take away our rights. I would rather try every other avenue available including but not limited to nullification, secession, protest, non-compliance, and revolt.

It is extremely worrisome considering all of the directions this convention could go.  However, we need to make some dramatic changes.  I support the repeal of two amendments and the addition of one.  I believe the combination of the 16th and 17th Amendments are what made possible this out-of-control federal government.

We should return to funding the federal government through the states and apportioned by state populations.

We should once again allow state governments to have oversight of federal legislation and authority by allowed state legislatures to choose Senators.

We should add an amendment that would require all elected officials to fully complete the term of office they sought, before they could seek another.  No holding one office while campaigning for another.  No consecutive terms in any office.  Make them all true citizen legislators by requiring them to return home after a single term!

I would favor this if I could trust the people involved 100 percent. I do not feel that will ever happen, in today’s lack of moral actions at all levels of leadership.

There are allot of reasons why a con-con is a really bad idea. I will list a few.

1. The government does not respect the constitution as it is and would certainly not abide by any amendments.

2. A convention would certainly run away and we could end up with a soviet style constitution.

3. We cannot control who goes to a convention. Do we trust liberal progressives (both democrats and republicans) to do anything that is good for the nation or the people. NO!

4. History – The last convention was called to revise the articles of confederation. The founders threw it away and created our present constitution, they also changed the rules for ratification. They were honorable statesmen. Can we expect politicians to do the honorable thing today? NO! That’s why we call them politicians and not statesmen.

A Constitutional Convention at this time is not a workable solution to the political situation we are experiencing.

Like some Federal legislation, as recently revealed by Matt Taibbi regarding finance legislation that basically approved anything any financial corporation wanted to do (see his last article for Rolling Stone magazine), any such convention is most likely to end in disaster.

We already have a de-facto tyranny that Mussolini would have drooled over.  We’d be likely to end up with a “legal” one as well.

Legislation such as “Read the Bills Act” and “Write the Bills Act,” as put forward by Downsize DC are more rational.

The truth is that taking back the government requires action and responsibility at a local level FIRST.  Just as one doesn’t want “top down” rules from the Feds to each individual, so each individual needs to look around and take more responsibility for where they are.

Non-cooperation also works, as long as one doesn’t directly violate the laws.

  1. Witness the last several elections, and tell me you would trust a CC to not completely remake our Constitution into something unrecognizable? After all, the Current occupant of the Oval Office is a supposed “Constitutional Scholar”, and look how well THAT is working out!!!!!!!

  2. Please listen to http://www.KrisAnneHall.com podcasts for the week March 17-21 to understand what Congress has stated that they would do with a Continental Convention. I don’t think you would get the results you would want. Please see what their stance is before you risk it.

  3. I do NOT support a Constitutional Convention. You don’t have ‘control’ over who is going to the convention. Once the convention starts, you have no control over what is added or deleted. At this point, I don’t trust anyone.

    Why can’t we just stick with the Constitution? Get rid of the crooked politicians in D.C.

  4. Based on the level of corruption, fraud and insanity in our government and our legal system today, I believe that a constitutional convention would only open the door to the total destruction of the constitution and our rights. I will guarantee that first and second amendments would be totally obliterated in a constitutional convention. Before any constitutional convention should be held several politicians and judges would have to be replaced. Unfortunately once corruption reaches a level it is at today I believe that it is like a pandemic disease that has to be destroyed before any changes or healing can really be made. Holding a constitutional convention now would be like a 500 pound man trying to run a marathon, which in his current condition, is in reality nothing more than a cruel joke,

  5. I worry as much about a Constitutional Convention as anyone who responded to this article, but we all know the system is broken and the loss of our liberties is accelerating. Our choices are to meekly complain about the problems or to boldly correct them. I prefer the latter.

  6. One problem with a Constitutional Convention is that you can’t limit it’s actions. You can push to have one to take care of an issue, but once it is in session they can take up any issue including a re-writing of the Constitution. Good intentions can turn into a disaster. You don’t need a Constitutional Convention to say the government can’t do this or that, The Constitution already specifies what to powers of the government are. We need to remove all polititions who refuse to obey the Constitution. We need to push for legislation that requires that any appropriation bill must show where it is justified under the Constitution before it can even be brought to a vote. We The People need to take our government back and return to the Republic that our Constitution guarrantees, not this perversion called Democracy.

  7. Been hearing about a constitional convention from a. Certain radio show host but want to know more about it and if it would work as the so called leaders are not even following the rule of law now,what would this change

  8. We already fought this battle in the late 70’s to early 80’s when a “Con-Con” was proposed to call for a balanced budget. It was defeated by the skin of our teeth and with good reason. the main thing was we the people would have no say so in who attended and what they undertook to change. Those problems are still there today. If we don’t trust the politicians to do their jobs as outlined in the Constitution, how can we trust them to give us back a slightly amended Constitution that keeps all our enumerated rights in place while putting more restraints upon themselves? This was a bad idea in the 70’s and a worse one today.

  9. The greatest threat above the issues prior cited is a small group of trillionaires that are the major shareholders of the Federal Reserve and other central banks. These trillionaires are the Rothschild, Rockefeller, Warburg, JPMorgan banking families. They control both parties. They have an agenda to reduce the worlds population 90%. Through starvation and war! When the planned collapse of the banking system takes place martial law will ensue and the FEMA prison camps and the millions of plastic coffins stockpiled around the country will be filled. We are in grave danger. REX 84 IS HERE!

  10. What makes those proposing a ‘Convention of the States’ to propose an Amendment to limit the federal government think those in Washington would obey it any more than they obey the Constitution as it is? Elected, appointed, or hired, the Constitution is ignored and violated every day by those who ‘serve’ us.
