Hey fonta,

Who is Clyde Barber and why is he calling for a Constitutional Convention?

I think it is most appropriate for you to voice your opinion. I have no problem with visionary thinking. That being said, we are in perilous times and I would not trust "that a crisis of a constitutional convention would to go to waste."

We have a populace who is easily guided by the left/right paradigm thru the msm, and that populace does not even understand that both of those paradigms are controlled by the same interests. Right now we don’t even have a congress who will uphold the current constitution. They cannot even seem to understand the Bill of Rights. We live in a day and age when lawyers argue over the meaning of the little word “is.”

Ron Paul said as president he wanted to cancel all the executive orders, or something along those lines. I would have to go find an exact quote. But it seems he preferred to leave the existing document in place and repeal those laws which are unconstitutional.

If the likes of Hamilton and Morris were able to use a consolidated government to their benefit with the first constitution in the form of a National Bank, just what kind of Legal Criminals will crawl out of the wood work this time?

How many pages is the current constitution? How many pages will a new one be? Will we have to pass it before we can read it and understand it? Look at what has been done with health care. My healthcare, your healthcare. The congress did not even read what was being done with the healthcare of each individual in the United States before passing the bill. Who can be trusted? Ron Paul? Yes but what was he able to do to stop Obama care? We are fighting a freight train at full speed.

My comments have been quickly jotted down, but I think you see the gist of what I am trying to get at. I am not against change, but I think we would be best going back to the bedrock and enforcing it since we are in such a soulless time here in these United States.

I wish you a blessed Thanksgiving. Holbrook shared this with me this week and it has been a precious filter for me as I look around and I think it perfect for this season:

1 Chronicles 29:11-13
"Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name."
