Maine citizens vote at GOP Convention to include Convention of States in platform

Maine State Director Ken Quinn recently attended the 2016 Maine Republican Convention to propose the addition of an Article V Convention of States plank to the Republican platform.

His trip was remarkably successful.

Ken and his wife Shelly headed up to Bangor, Maine, early Friday morning. They were joined by District Captain Margery Ripley, who helped them hand out flyers to the delegates as they entered the Cross Center for the two day convention. The flyers explained the purpose of a Convention of States as well as the amendment that was being proposed to the 2016 Maine Republican Platform, which read:

“We support the Convention of States Project application which seeks to call an Article V convention limited to only proposing amendments to the U.S. Constitution that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and terms of office for federal officials and members of Congress.”

Quinn moved the amendment and spoke on its behalf from the convention floor. “We were only given one minute to speak on the amendment, which basically changed everything I was planning to say,” said Quinn. “Several people spoke on behalf of the amendment and a few spoke in opposition. When the Chairman of the Convention asked for the vote the Ayes were overwhelming and the amendment passed. I am extremely grateful to the individuals that joined me on the floor to speak on behalf of the amendment.”

Thank you for the news it will be forwarded to Mr. Massingale

Convention of States. They will lose the Constitution.

I hate to say I think you are right. They are treading on thin ice. To many Socialists with power who can vote as far as I'm concerned. Great idea but to late in the game.

The biggest is the threat to the Bill of Rights. We need to have an iron clad declaration that the BILL OF RIGHTS should never be subject to the whims of definitions by a sooo preeme court". Judicial powers need to be sharply limited, HANDS OFF THE BILL OF RIGHTS!  Also the power of the Presidency needs to have clear boundries. I know they already exist, however these things need to be enforced!

We do have an iron clad with the Bill of Rights but the  communist democrat socialist party just DON'T CARE.

I'm all for it!  I am not a Maine Voter, but I have a summer home there.  Looks like Maine's the First and its a great step forward for this state.  Thanks Mr. Quinn for getting this passed. 

Phyllis Schlafly is the scholar here.  No Convention of States.  We will ruin what we have.

What we have, is a privilege Political class, that can't hear US, even when we scream at them !! 

Stop the Bull S$it!!! 

Depending on how well the country does in throwing out the incumbents in Washington and replacing them with conservatives, it might be a good time to advance the Convention of states convention.

Are you aware that Gorge Soros and Hillary Clinton are all for this con-con? Before the first convention in 1778 the people were promised that the articles of Confederation would not be changed and only amendments would be voted on. Guess what?? Once the gavel drops there are no rules. They threw out the Articles of Confederation and gave us a new constitution which we currently have. All of the promises and chatter that the constitution would remain the same except for a few new amendments is totally false. They can throw out the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, amendments or the entire constitution and replace it with what the NWO wants. PLEASE, NO CON-CON!!!!

I have a thought, I believe that Maine is a liberal state.  Sounds suspicious to me.  And I also know personally  several people who came from Maine. 

I think its a good idea whose time has come. It clearly sends a message to the despots.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
