From my understanding there is a risk from holding a Constitutional Convention as it opens up the entire Constitution and previous amendments to change.
Given this administrations left leaning policies I am also concerned, Barry.
There is an extreme risk if a Constitutional Convention is called! People need to educate themselves before they forward any of these e-mails! Once a CC is set - they do as they want when they want. It is my understanding they can do anything and nobody supervises them in any way. They answer to nobody. They can declare the whole constitution null and void - and replace it with anything they want - ANYTHING! Do you want Sharia Law - they can implement it - and NOBODY can stop it. They answer to NOBODY - and NOBODY can tell them what to do - not the POTUS, the House, the Senate, or the people - they answer to nobody! PLEASE everybody - educate yourselves as to what a CC is and its dangers. How many politicians out there do you trust to give 100% power and authority to - to do absolutely anything they want - and I DO MEAN ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING - and we have no say so or a way to stop them? THINK and KNOW what you're forwarding BEFORE you forward. Here are three paragraphs from a story about KY calling for a CC - you can find it at:
Yes changes need to be made. Using a Constitutional Convention is a real hazard to the future right now. The wrong people still have the numbers to control such a convention. Better still we should look at those still representing us who've been discovered to be wolves in sheeps clothing. Barry is correct! We've recived many e-mails over the past 10 years spelling out how we needed a Constitutional Convention and each time we've researched the backers of it, it wasn't pretty. The Communist Party is the biggest proponent of this. You need to ask yourself "Why?"
I won't answer it for you. Each of us needs to realize that more laws of any kind is more incumberance upon our freedoms. We need to instill common sense on the local governments and prevent the fools and crooks from getting on the ladder to the White House and Congress. We need to study the Constitution and understand were and how current law has run afoul of its precepts and law. We need to begin to dismantle every law that impinges upon the process and agency which is within the Constitution as it stands. We have thrown way too much "mud" upon the docuement and keep its true meaning buried under the rubble created by the "I' and "Me too" SOCIETY.
It is the excess laws and ordinances and skullduggery of those on the bench that have given voice and authority to the foolish, inept and dangerous decsions that are running roughshod over the nation.
Have your Convention, but, only after cleaning Senate and House as well as the White House including your own back yard before embarking upon a course to change what God put His hand to. The Founding Fathers argued, fought and bled to give us the Constitution and it is almost more applicable to our time. Each knelt on his knees and sought a higher source than themselves for inspiration and guidance. Not half of Congress has the education these men sought on their own from upon High and from the lessons learned from Societies that flourished and vaporized as quickly as they had come. They learned from them, they lived simply without the interference of computers and technology because power was in word and deed not in playing. They supported themselves and still attended to the duties of the People. Franklyn warned of paying to much for positions that would attract the worst type of scoundrel seeking power and money. Past generations didn't listen and didnt' study. What is our fate to be??? It is in the voters hands ignorant or educated. Computers and Technology are great for those with understanding of their ability, capability and the common sense in which to apply their use. Evil understands too!

I agree, JH.
Make them enforce what we have now and then let's talk.
i am in total agreement with the things I have read today, we all need to remember the principles, that has made America Great, and that we need to keep our government in check by listening and responding to our State and Federal leaders in a positive manner. That with the help of our forums that Tea Parties, Tony, Darla, Dee, and all of those that pass good information on to us.
Lets be active in all good works, remember to keep the peace, and show the bad guys that We the People ARE the ones they have to answer to!
The Constitutional Convention ballot measure failed here in MT last Nov. As for subversives and the wrong people that could be in charge, CORRECT. It will come up again in 2012 here. We DID change this state from blue to red overwhelmingly, but our Senators are off years and were not up for re-election. 2012 will be good year in MT, unless the magnetic poles reverse. Then it's a buckboard or carriage with horses. The Amish have it right.
