My good friend, Tom DeWeese, chairman of the American Policy Center, recently issued an urgent alert regarding a revived effort to assemble a modern Constitutional Convention.
Mind you, the
However, can one imagine what would
happen if the current bunch of politically correct
The modern Con Con effort began
back in the 1970s. Since then, 32 states have issued the
call. The total number of states that are required to
enact the Con Con is 34. Simple math reveals that we are
only two states short of this disaster. As word of this
potential calamity began to surface, the effort stalled
with the total states issuing the call stuck at 32. With
the election of
Obama, however, supporters of a Con Con have been
emboldened and are now trying to resurrect the momentum.
The state that is currently in the crosshairs appears to
States that have already approved a Con Con include Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming. A few of these states have since seen the error of their ways and have voted to rescind their approvals. This fact, alone, should be enough to kill the push for another Con Con, but don`t expect the powers that be to see it that way.
Therefore, it seems that if
Lest anyone take this lightly or think that a Constitutional Convention is no big deal, DeWeese properly warned,
"In truth no restrictive language from any state can legally limit the
scope or outcome of a [Constitutional] Convention! Once a Convention is called Congress determines how the
delegates to the Convention are chosen. Once chosen,
those Convention delegates possess more power than the
DeWeese is right. If called, a modern Constitutional Convention could declare the U.S. Constitution to be null and void, and could completely rewrite the document. For example, former U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger once declared, "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."
Given the fact that Washington, D.C., is comprised mostly of Big-Government liberals and neocons, it is almost certain that the founders` Constitution—which was founded on the principles of Natural Law that protects individual liberty—would be replaced with some sort of "collective rights" document protecting an ambiguous "common good."
At that point, there is no more
Yes, it is that bad, and, yes, it is that close to happening!
In the short term, every
freedom-loving American must do everything they can
RIGHT NOW to prevent this from happening. Since the

In the longer term, there is another question that must be addressed. What will we do if and when a modern Constitutional Convention is called and our U.S. Constitution is declared null and void, with a completely new constitution enacted?
Which states will reject the new constitution? Which states will declare their independence from any such new union? Or, will they all surrender their state constitutions and go along with this Twenty-First Century New World Order—a New World Order that will doubtless incorporate some form of North American Community or Union?
It might be a very good idea to immediately begin identifying those states that would unequivocally reject any new union, and would be willing to declare their independence from whatever government would evolve from a modern Constitutional Convention.
Yes, I am saying it: we may need to resurrect the original Thirteen Colonies—except they would probably not number thirteen, and, in all likelihood, they would not be located on the East Coast.
I am convinced that there are still millions of Americans who are sick and tired of surrendering their liberties to Big-Government sycophants in both the Democrat and Republican parties, and that if a Constitutional Convention is called—and our U.S. Constitution is wiped away or rewritten—are ready and willing to declare their independence all over again.
So, I issue the call: where are the new Thirteen Colonies?
We better start looking now, because there will come a point when the time for looking for good ground is over and the time to stand our ground will be upon us.
