The short term Tea Party goals are important. We must remove irresponsible politicians from Washington DC and try to regain some measure of control over our government. This is only a stopgap measure, however, since the legal loopholes that allowed this gargantuan government to evolve are still in place.

We can argue about what we consider Constitutional until we are blue in the face, but as long as the Supreme Court rules in favor of big government with vague interpretations, the Republic will always be at risk.

The first time I saw a map with 38 states taking action to legally oppose Obamacare, it suddenly dawned on me: 38! Just the number of states needed to ratify an Amendment to the Constitution! We have the momentum and now support from the several states.

THE TIME IS RIGHT TO FOCUS THE TEA PARTY ON A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION TO ELIMINATE THE GENERAL WELFARE CLAUSE AND MODIFY THE INTERSTATE COMMERCE CLAUSE FOREVER

  • You are right...a Constitutional Convention may be more than we need to fix the loopholes. Another loophole that may be overlooked is the one that started the snowball rolling. FDR coerced the Supreme Court into acknowledging the general welfare clause with the threat of adding 6 new Supreme Court positions and packing them with liberal activist judges to get his socialist agenda passed. To me, this is the highest crime against the Republic in all its history and it also sounds like something the Obama administration might do. All it takes to change the number of Supreme Court justices is an act of Congress signed by the President. This gives those branches of government way too much power over the Judicial branch. In addition to the aforementioned amendments, there needs to be an amendment that sets the number of Supreme Court Justices at NINE and requires a Constitutional Amendment to change it.
