NO, we must gain control of the existing government (Fed and State)... that doesn't mean we need to replace every malefactor in government. The people only need to replace a majority of the malefactors with citizen politicians.
Once the People have control of the government... they can set the agenda, control the narrative and any 'Proposed Amendments' offered by a COS. Currently, we control nothing and can expect that a COS will be run by the wrong kinds of delegates.
Once we have working control of the Government and our political parties... we will control those appointed as delegates to any COS deemed necessary. If Congress is run by true Conservatives and the People have a majority in each House, the People, thru Congress, can offer Amendments, as needed, to ensure that special interests and the political parties never abuse the Constitution again...
They can start by passing a 'Term Limits and Recall Amendment'. One term of 6yrs, with 1/3rd standing for election and appointment every 2yrs. Provide for a recall of any serving official by public referendum or the State Legislature.
That single Amendment should place the people in perpetual power (Not Political Parties)... resulting in a multitude of problems being resolved by their actions: Balanced Budgets, Constitutional Government, a much smaller federal government, fair trade policy, controlled immigration, reinstitution of our religious and personal freedoms, etc., etc.
We don't need a COS... we need responsible citizen politicians in charge of our government.
NO one is doubting the honesty and truthfulness of heart of those pushing openly for the COS, however let me just present what happened in Texas when they were just trying to have a simple county meeting about 6 months ago - the Feds swooped in and raided the meeting and broke it up and threatened to arrest everyone !
[DC, as Dictator, has made it illegal for groups to gather for any reason. This is what happens when states allow Feds in their states to begin with and let them operate in their state. Govt is the biggest evil there is. Govt is a cancer that eats away at everything that the people hold dear. And govt has a ravenous appetite !]
Now keep in mind the Feds have NO lawful authority in any state ! THIS is the true law that if the states would enforce it and take back their sovereignty, states would have no problem with DC anymore - but they keep that Treasonous "mini corporation" deal going by accepting Feds IN their states to begin with, and allowing them to operate in their states. The Feds watch every move you make and they know exactly all about the details of the planned COS, and they also have very good infiltrators into it.
Keep in mind that the Communists (Liberals) WANT this COS more then you do ! And they love the idea that the people are setting it up (for them) - so that it will LOOK like the people did it, when in reality they WILL take it over via infiltrators to get what THEY want as a "Constitution".
Did you know that several years ago they already had a new 2nd Amendment all ready to replace the original one ? By now they most likely have a whole new constitution ready to go - all they need is the COVER of the unaware people. It is most likely the one who began this COS idea to begin with was a plant to get this thing going. Someone had to get this ball roiling to begin with. They had to get THE PEOPLE working on this with all good intentions.
Just think about this. YOU may be as honest and good intentioned as anyone can be, but there are people in the shadows you are totally unaware of. THAT is how DC operates = and they are GOOD at it ! They are expert at getting your trust and leading you right where they want you to go.
Never forget we now live in the AGE OF DECEPTION. And the Deceivers are experts at what they do !
Very well put LBF...
How do we view this video on Let Trump Be Trump ? Sounds good.
NO link to the actual video given anywhere.
Thank you. Hope it works. The last link only took me to a picture but no video.
Nope, no video. I even put it into the search engine and there is none listed.
Nothing, NOTHING will ever change until these words become ACTIONS. Believe me, these politicians AREN'T afraid of you. They know that the only thing these computer commandos are capable of is complaining.
Unless someone can pull this disorganized rabble together, all this discussion is a waste of time. Unless one (or SOME) of these politicians are jailed, or at least tarred and feathered, nothing will change. There need to be consequences for these treasonous actions. By the people.
Strangely enough this is exactly what the 2nd Amendment was given to us for !
WE are just NOT USING IT !
Please state your well thought out plan. This isn't going to be a walk in the park.
Voting them out will not work... it will take engaged political power... massive numbers of American's taking to the streets demanding the current political cabal resigns subject to new elections and the passage of a Term Limits and Recall Amendment.
We have installed a new age aristocracy... who believe they are entitled to their places in government... they will not leave and have gerrymandered the electoral system in such a manner as to guarantee their dynasty remains in control. Outsiders need not apply for political office.
Agreed.We can no longer depend on the supposed "power" of the vote. The lines have been blurred, and there is no justice. Not sure where to go from here.
Voting just ain't gonna get it done anymore Henry.
