SC Andre Bauer is calling for a Constitutional ConventionSubmitted by BFrank on Fri, 03/26/2010 - 11:38
URGENT! At this very moment, Andre Bauer is calling for a Constitutional Convention in the Senate chambers of the SC state house. If you are able to go over there, do IT NOW!
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO GO THERE, SEND THIS TO SOMEONE WHO CAN!
The real question about Constitutional Convention is this:
Do we need to give the power to write a new constitution to the very people who have been ignoring, usurping, and trying to destroy the constitution that we have now?
The video below is made specifically for state legislators, by a state legislator.
Constitutional Convention is explained.
Beware Article V
Beware Article V (part 1 of 4)
Beware Article V (part 2 of 4)
Beware Article V (part 3 of 4)
Beware Article V (part 4 of 4)
A Constitutional Convention is not a procedure for making a small change.
A Constitutional Convention is not a procedure for enforcing an existing law.
A Constitutional Convention is a procedure for giving us an ENTIRELY NEW Constitution.
THERE IS NO WAY TO "LIMIT" a Constitutional Convention TO ONE ISSUE.
If you want one amendment, then you present an amendment.
You do not put the ENTIRE Constitution at risk for one amendment.
The only reason that Constitutional Convention is being promoted as the solution TO JUST ONE problem, is that the hidden agenda would be considered to be outrageous.
If government ignores the constitution and usurps power now, what would we have if they could write a new constitution?
THERE IS NO SUCH THING as a Constitutional Convention "for a balanced budget".
THERE IS NO SUCH THING as a Constitutional Convention "to return power to the states."
THERE IS NO SUCH THING as a Constitutional Convention "to stop illegal aliens."
THERE IS NO SUCH THING as a Constitutional Convention "to restore the right to keep and bear arms".
THERE IS NO SUCH THING as a Constitutional Convention "to limit terms".
THERE IS only one kind of Constitutional Convention.
THE only kind of Constitutional Convention; that can be convened is a Constitutional Convention to write a new Constitution.
A Constitutional Convention is a legislative body;
which operates ABOVE the limitations of the Constitution.
This makes it more powerful, and MORE DANGEROUS, than any other legislative body.
This is not an opinion, but it if a fact of law.
A Constitutional Convention is a means of DESTROYING the American Republic. A Constitutional Convention is opening a "Pandora's box" for RADICAL change. Once the "genie is out of the bottle" no one can control it.
The last time that we had a Constitutional Convention was in 1787, when we got the Constitution that we now have.
