The Path To A Constitutional Convention

constitution quill pen SC The Path To A Constitutional Convention

A broke clock can’t fix itself.

The political process of the federal government is broken. The rule of law no longer exists in Washington, DC, and it will only return with a mandate from the majority of states that comprise the Union.

The Framers of the US Constitution gave the states a clear path to a Constitutional Convention with Article V. This particular provision allows the states with a majority to make Amendments to the Constitution, by application of a defined majority of our respective states legislatures.

The power of government is guaranteed to the people representing the majority of states legislatures by Article V. The men who built the framework for this country undoubtedly included this safeguard against tyranny as a result of their own struggle against a failed and corrupt government.

The case for a Constitutional Convention is solid, with the majority of Americans knowing that the federal government is bankrupt at every level.  With so many wrongdoings by a failed federal bureaucracy, along with mounting evidence of criminal & ethical malfeasance, only our respective state legislature’s can restore law and order to the United States.

The Petition at Change.Org that is calling for a Constitutional Convention is addressed to every state elected official in every state that comprises the United States. The federal government is broken and it’s now up to the states to protect its citizenry.

Remember, a broke clock can’t fix itself.       Sign The Petition!

      Signing of this silly petition is a complete waste of time. Who are you going to send the petition to? There is no recipient for such a petition.
      Read Article V of the Constitution. The steps are all llisted there in black and white.
      Join the Tea Party and get involved in your State and put pressure on your legislature to get them to "declare for a CC'. There are 27 States who are declared now but we need 33 total. Congress can ignore us until there are the corrrect number, then they have no CHOICE they MUST DECLARE A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. This is the LAW of the LAND right now, Congress does not have any chioice the Article says THEY MUST DECLARE AND ADJOURN.
      The Tea Party is active in every State in the union and they are the best vehicle to use at this time. So get involved.
      We can put Term Limits on every elected Office, with salary and benefits.
      Wd can abolish the Privately owned Federal Reserve and make it over as the National Reserve under the Treasury of the U.S., Wd can set t he nation on the gold standard and stop thiis funny money.
      Think it over, it is your country…..

    I have been advocating for a Constitutional Convention for over three years and so far even the Tea Party does not have a clue.
    This is the only way to repair this Nation. Congress certainluy will not do anything to repair the nation, for they are the reason we are in the mess. SCotus will not do anything becasue it is not in their power, nor is is in the scope of the President.
    We the People are the only answer and Article V is the only answer. We now have 50 states looking to leave the Union, which if they do leave, we will be Europe, big deal, we will be easy pickins for the International Banking Cartel. The answer is to convince 2/3rds of the States, through their Legislative Bodies to Declare for a CC to the U.S. Congress. The U.S. Congress must then adjourn and declare a CC for the Nation.

    • Al Metcalf says:

      The citizens of the several States all come together and propose changes to the Constitution to make it a more perfect Union to suit the needs of all of the Citizens of the Nation. After the adopting of the amendments and the abolishing of what amends we wish to change we vote and pass by a 3/4ths of the States and adjourn. This new Constitution now is the Law of the Land and every person and body within the Nation must follow the laws made by the people.
      When can we get it started??

        Al, You are living in fantasy land:

        1. You think "the citizens of the several States will propose changes"? Really? Why do you believe that, when the Constitution says CONGRESS will call the con con. CONGRESS will appoint the delegates – they can appoint themselves as delegates!

        2. OH! You think 3/4 of the States will have to approve any new Constitution? Really? What you forget is this: The 3/4 requirement is in the existing Constitution. The new Constitution can have any new criteria for ratification they want! They can say that a simple majority vote in the U.S. Senate is sufficient to ratify the new Constitution.

        YOU ARE BEING TAKEN FOR A RIDE TO TYRANNY.

    • I am not a Constitution Lawer, and I don`t care about Federal law`s.
      American people have no representation by all politicians, Republican and Democrats for a long, long time. And what was American Revolution about?" Taxivation without representation." The founding fathers didn`t ask the KIng permission to revolte. Why should states to file petitions, to ask Washington permission to secede?Obviously, I am not calling for a bloody Revolution. Thank to the Constitution of the USA it is not necessary. I am just saying we need to get back to the Constitution and to follow it. For to long we allowed politicians to ignore it. And now ,obama is simply spitting on it. Everything he does is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. He is not acting as a president. He is talking like a King, walking like a King, acting like a King. It is DISGUSTING. Constitutional Convention IS A MUST!!! TERM LIMITS for ALL politicians, at ALL governments levels , local and Federal IS A MUST!!! CALL, WRITE, DON`T ASK – DEMAND!!!

  3. The case for never giving these Republicrats the keys to open that strong box could'nt be more clear.
    Are you going to let Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Johnny the "Cry Baby Compromiser have a blank check to rewrite the Constitution in Karl Marx's image? Well, that is what will happen if you fools keep pushing for a con-con. There is no law that says these miscreants can't take an opened convention straight toward hell if that is where their puppet master dictates. In your dream they will open the convention and do everything your pea brains think they should to protect our way of life but after watching these mobsters rape Liberty and her wealth all my life I don't want these punks anywhere near a Con-con. Get wisdom! Once that box is open they can take the convention anywhere they like. So far they have proven they hate Liberty and hate sound money. They loath the constitution. Don't give them the key's to Change one word of the the Constitution or you will wake up to find the Constitution legalizes their crimes.

    You don't understand the ramifications of what you are advocating.

    You are being manipulated by those who want to get rid of Our Constitution.

    CONGRESS "calls" the Article V convention. Just whom, pray, do you think CONGRESS will appoint as delegates? Ummmm, might it be ones like themselves?

    Do you think YOU will be appointed a delegate? Do you have some notion that the States will appoint delegates? Really? What makes you believe that?

    Come on, Folks! The Progressives have been kicking you around for 100 years – and you STILL haven't wised up?

    Here is a short paper by Henry Lamb on the dangers of a con con: http://www.wnd.com/2011/02/268253/ You really need to read it. What Lamb says is true.

  5. kELLEIGH nELSON says:

    Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Warren Burger (no friend of conservatives) vigorously opposed convening a constitutional convention. He wrote in 1988, “I have also repeatedly given my opinion that there is no effective way to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention. The Convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda. Congress might try to limit the Convention to one amendment or to one issue, but there is no way to assure that the Convention would obey. After a Convention is convened, it will be too late to stop the Convention if we don’t like the agenda. The meeting in 1787 ignored the limit placed by the Confederation Congress ‘for the sole and express purpose.’ “

  6. kELLEIGH nELSON says:

    We also have a warning directly from the “Father of the Constitution,” James Madison, when the states of New York and Virginia formally petitioned Congress in 1788 to call for a con-con to propose amendments to the Constitution, which had only been completed a year before. Madison wrote this letter, “If a General Convention were to take place for the avowed and sole purpose of revising the Constitution, it would naturally consider itself as having a greater latitude than the congress…It would consequently give greater agitation to the public mind; an election into it would be courted by the most violent partisans on both sides…[and] would no doubt contain individuals of insidious views, who, under the mask of seeking alterations popular in some parts…might have the dangerous opportunity of sapping the very foundations of the fabric…Having witnessed the difficulties and dangers experienced by the first Convention, which assembled under every propitious circumstance, I should tremble for the result of a second, meeting in the present temper in America.” Just imagine a Constitutional Convention in today’s climate and sans the statesmen like our founding fathers.

  7. Kelleigh Nelson says:

    Both the right and left, neither of whom are our friends are pushing for a Constitutional Convention. Why is that? Because waiting in the wings is the NEW STATES CONSTITUTION, written by the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations over a period of 10 years at the cost of 25 million. It contains no God given unalienable rights, it contains on privileges granted by the federal government. Here is the link to look at this 27 page horror: http://www.sweetliberty.org/issues/concon/newstat

    Do not be foolish enough to fall prey to the insidiousness of pushing for a con-con. Instead push our elected officials to OBEY THE CONSTITUTION WE HAVE, which is a document given to us to protect us from government!
