Oh Wow!

These russian propagandists are really animated.

DC has been pushing the states around like a KGB bully. It's about time the states rise up - before people start disappearing.

The greatest threat to americans is washington.

IF YOU THINK THIS IS A GOOD IDEA

YOU ARE A BRAIN DEAD IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

big mistake.

big mistake.

Oh God!

I really hope this does not happen. The problem isn't with the constitution, it's with Washington DC. I could count on one hand the number of people I'd trust to make changes to the constitution and none of them will be asked for input, I'm sure.

Congress has no discretion but *must* call for a convention.

The article said it makes some conservatives worry as to what could happen once a convention were convened, but according to George F. Will, the state legislatures can stipulate in advance a "one-item agenda of ratifying the balanced-budge amendment."

I agree with the reporter. It's a historic event. I just wonder how long it will now take the House Speaker to figure out and tell us if all 34 states are still in - ya know, where he has to ascertain the answer in a verifiable way and not just read a pre-scripted outcome off a teleprompter.

No, our rights under the Bill of Rights cannot be taken away through the amendment process. These rights are unalienable, they don't come from the federal or state government.

I'd like to see the 16th and 17th amendments repealed, and an amendment addressing term limits.

It has never happened before...

...so no one really knows what can or cannot happen.

As for our rights being inalienable, that's true, but the government and the thugs they will send to arrest you do not care about that, and it is a major concern that basic constitutional rights could be stricken from the constitution by the same destroyers of this country that have been ignoring it.

I would also like to see the 16 & 17th repealed.

A con-con could work, but it would be very risky right now.

Lawman,

This isn't about politics. Politics are used to divide and consolidate power of control.

The real revolution has moved on from the political distraction. And it did so some time ago.

It's about culture, and the Golden Rule knows no boarders.

God Bless, I'm raising my own meat and growing my garden and I live in a subdivision with strict rules. There is no reason for foreign 'aid' by the 'world bank', to anyone.

It's all a system of control against God's creation.

Life is not static,

life is dynamic. Anything worth doing in life is risky. I simply do not share your fear. The government has already arrested people for standing up for their rights. Whether the issue is filming the police, or open carry in states where it is constitutional, it is all risky business. I subscribed a long time ago to a simple philosophy, I'd rather stand on my feet as a free person, than on bended knees as a servant.

Let's look at the glass as half full. There are too many people watching these days. What happened at the Bundy ranch was reported by alternative media, citizens with cellphones and cameras and uploaded to the internet. The MSM wasn't necessary, think about that. Compare this to the seige at Waco in 1993. People believed the government narrative pushed by the MSM because it was the only access to reporting they had at the time.

BTW, I'm quoting from the original Declaration of Independence which states:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

Hey look, I agree with you...

...about what you're saying about life being risky, and there's no great reward without taking risk. I agree the government is already out-of-control and ignoring the constitution. You make a lot of good points that I agree with.

I'm not in "fear" of a con-con. But I certainly advocate supreme caution when allowing the very same corrupt government to engage in anything that could potentially re-write the constitution, legally.

Yes, more people are waking up. Yes, people are watching. But how many? How many even knew about this Con-Con reaching the 34 state requirement?

I simply do not trust the individuals running this government.

We're not currently at 34. Some states have rescinded the call

"Remaining unclear from the language of Article V—and subject to debate—is whether an application, once made by a state legislature, may be subsequently revoked by that state's legislature."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Rescissions_of_Article_...

I think it's currently at closer to 24 than 34.

One good thing coming out of this is that people are at least talking about the Constitution.

Do you have a link or source...?

...that shows which states, if any, have rescinded their call for a con-con? That would be a relief.

But then why is Boehner, Fox news, etc. taking it seriously? I don't trust a con-con as far as a can throw it so I hope it won't happen... at least not yet... there may be a time when we really need one, but the current climate is untrustworthy.

They are taking it seriously...

..because they want to rewrite the constitution!

They see this as the best current effort to do so.

Yes and NO!

A call by the states to convene a Constitutional Convention may only take a 2/3 (66%) vote by the States. But amending the actual Constitution itself during this Conventional Convention is something else altogether.

As I understand the law, it will still take a 3/4 (75%) vote of the States to create any new amendments to our present Constitution.

That's my take and understanding. Open to correction.

Ok, but they have the 66% to call the convention...

...and that is majorly significant!

It will require 75% to actually pass any amendment changes but they cannot get to that point without first calling together the states for the Con-Con itself...

This is HUGE news! First time in History. Don't think it's not!

You're correct, and its more than HUGE!

If it happens, it will go down into the history books. Our children's children will be talking about it.

Yes they will.

From the concentration camps, they will be cursing us for not stopping it when we could.

Yeah, it's real... FoxNews and Infowars have picked up the story

Newsmax covers this story as well...

http://www.newsmax.com/US/constitutional-convention-Boehner-...

"Even with Michigan recently becoming the 34th state to call for a Constitutional Convention, it's not at all certain that a rewrite of the nation's founding document is close at hand.

House Speaker John Boehner is reviewing whether the action by Michigan has triggered the constitutional mandate that Congress call such a convention.

Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter of California recently asked Boehner for clarification as to where the state count stands, and if Michigan has tipped the two-thirds majority needed to make the convention call."

"With the recent decision by Michigan lawmakers, it is important that the House — and those of us who support a balanced budget amendment — determine whether the necessary number of states have acted and the appropriate role of Congress should be in this case," Hunter wrote to Boehner."

Does it scare anyone else?

I'm afraid a constitutional convention would not clarify rights but rather take them away. Scared we would be in a worse predicament in the end.

Yes, absolutely...

If this is true, I would not trust it in the least.

AGREED!...And As Far As A Referendum

...of any sort regarding Amendments?

Just look at the mess we have with the election process.

These bastards had better get busy cutting back their salaries instead, IF, they really wanna do something.

They will draw this out for years....and tell us how hard they are "working"....horseshit!
