Article V - Convention of the States

32
mac1221 32 points ago +34 / -2

That is exactly what the DS swamp creatures have been salivating over for years. What makes anyone think that the fix would not be in on a convention? The entire process would be hijacked and out of our control. If we are having a hard time dealing with our elections on a state level, we sure as hell would not have any control in a Convention which is also run by the states.

NO! Keep our Constitution intact. Our Constitution is the only thing standing between us and absolute tyranny. A convention would shred all of our rights - especially the 2A.

A convention IS what's needed, but you are correct, the only way it can happen is if we clean house first so that their power is at 5 or maybe 10% control rather than the 60-70% they have now... and I'm talking about governmental/bureaucratic power mostly but also we need to get rid of all the cabal/Soros/NWO leftists AND more importantly the RINOs.

Yeah, its a chicken and egg type thing. How do you get rid of them without changes, but how do you make changes with them woven into the government so deeply. Allowing them to make changes would only dig them in deeper. You have to push them back and seize power before you make a move to change things structurally and at the root.

Imagine 2A removed. Imagine POTUS term limits removed. Imagine 1A removed. Imagine ALL of those and more. It would be chaos and pure civil war. If there is any hope of a pseudo peaceful legal solution we have to remove them from power first. Everything else leads to death and destruction for everyone.

Agreed. That is my concern. There are those out there pushing for Article V thinking that is going to fix the problems - or that is the rationale they are using to get people to buy into the idea. The reality is that they want to trash our Constitution. So, as long as we are in our current state of affairs, as you so well described, Article V is a non starter.

We must take back our states. All politics are local and that is where we must make our stand. If we can clean up our states, then all we have to do is refuse to play the Federal game. Only then can Article V even be contemplated. Then we can work on dismantling the Federal beast. But, we must stop their agenda moving forward on our local levels first. Most people do not even realize how far along all the UN sustainable development agendas have progressed just in their local communities already. They are moving in lockstep all over the world and those nooses are getting ready to strangle us. God help us.

Question, why a convention when individual states can do the same thing. And it's interesting that florida is leading the way on all things states rights. Conventions rewuire state reps and most states reps are deep state

Darwyn 6 points ago +6 / -0

No. There are a handful of things the states CAN'T FIX AT ALL.

Term limits. This can done several ways but it is desperately needed.

Fixing the 16th amendment/tax laws. I could write a dissertation on this. Did you know it would be legit and constitutional for the congress to put a 99% tax on EVERYONE. That is the constitutional equivalence of 1A having a dozen "exceptions" so its freaking useless. The 16th doesn't need to be repealed. It needs to be FIXED. It should have had limits. Even a simple they can tax incomes and incomes only up to 20% would have sufficed. We gave them a CC and the pin then said... don't spend too much. I could fix this with one line. Every citizen must be taxed at the same rate regardless of income race sex creed etc. If the rate is 2% then EVERYONE rich or poor pays 2%. You remove the tax the rich bullshit and tax rates would fall quick.

Limiting debt. That is a tax on the people that we get little say in. They are writing checks we have to pay later.

There is an argument to be made that the 2nd amendment needs to be fixed. IE clarify that every citizen is a citizen soldier and should have access to similar equipment to what is standard issue for a soldier. A lot of wording issues but it does away with the but muh muskets bullshit. In 100 years when the standard issue weapon is a mark 99 phaser rifle then a citizen should have access to a civilian version of that same weapon just like we have AR-15s vs M4s today.

The other big 2A issue is the way they allow different states or even cities to have RADICALLY different gun laws. You toss your gun in your truck and its 100% legal. You then drive 100 miles away and catch a fucking felony because you drove over some invisible line on a map. WORSE you weren't even going there you were driving down the highway and got pulled over in a traffic stop. That's bullshit. How to fix this is MUCH more complicated but it needs to be addressed.

Anchor babies. That shit needs to be ended. One of the parents has to be a citizen for the child to be a citizen. It wouldn't take any effort to word a quick amendment and it would pass easily... IF we get rid of these stupid open boarders lunatics.

I could go on all freaking night.

I agree on everything but term limits. Just prosecute violators of the Bill of Rights.

Darwyn 1 point ago +1 / -0

Huh? Term limits is one of the most important things we need right now. Look at how all the people we are trying to get rid of are all long term and are very old. People like Pelosi would never be able to gather up so much power. Look at how term limits severely limited Obama. He would have clearly tried to keep running if POTUS didn't have a 2 term limit.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_members_of_the_United_States_Congress_by_longevity_of_service

Look at this list. See all those Democrat names with 30+ years in office. Then when you look at the GOP names you realize half of them are establishment RINOs that help the Uniparty not the people. THIS IS THE PROBLEM with congress. Term limits isn't a pure fix but it damn sure would help.

We need to get rid of the 3 alphabet letters organizations that are coming to our states and arrest and who knows what else.

1
Darwyn 1 point ago +1 / -0

If you get rid of the parasites we have in our government right now, amend the constitution, and fix congress they can then do their job and dismantle the three letter agencies. If states start arresting alphabet soup agents it will only lead to violence and things like succeeding from the union. Its is a plan that only ends in destruction just like the first civil war.

I'm not even saying don't do some of this. I'm just saying be smart about it. Use it as a way to expose them. Its not going to change anything. The exposure is what creates real change. Arresting them isn't the solution. Its merely a tool.

Godisglory1 2 points ago +2 / -0

I know, This is so complicated that I don’t know how it is going to be fixed with so many traitors we have and people who are not from this country infiltrated within the country and the federal and state level government. How are going to clean these places? Hopefully God will give us the tools to let us know who are traitors and real patriots.

6
Iknowstuff 6 points ago +6 / -0

In theory I'm in agreement with you but when this happens we will be in the process or have already removed that poison from power. Convention of the States is to add amendments so this cannot happen again. Again I understand the concern but the next step would be dissolving the union, which is also what they want. The point is that the current power structure will not exist because we took the power back. See my other reply to your comment on another post.

Fuck no. Secession is the only way.

2
MAGAdeburger 2 points ago +2 / -0

The only constitutional process for secession is for a part of a state to secede from the state, and it has to be approved by Congress (see WV). "Secession" i.e. a supposed right to unilaterally withdraw from the Union, like the Rebel shits claimed in 1860, is Calhounian nonsense. Now, "secession" a la natural rights argument, that's a different story... but not until all Constitutional paths have been exhausted, and they haven't been yet...

Like I’m gonna listen to a document that people can get bored with and outlaw drinking? Like I’m gonna listen to a document who’s first major change was to remove the individuals right to sue a government? A document that claims freedom while needing special wording for darker men? The constitution is a joke.

MAGAdeburger 1 point ago +1 / -0

As Madison explained in Federalist 37, "Perfection is unattainable." Our Constitution may not be perfect, but it is and has always been excellent. Its best attribute is the ability to be IMPROVED, albeit the difficulty of the amendment process, which also protects it from being destroyed with stupid changes.

It is the law of the land the preserves the Republic, only so long as enough enforce it.

Burt_Williams 1 point ago +1 / -0

The republic is only preserved by generational force. I’m not allowed to not be American, it’s not my choice, a factor of my birth. Yay for fuzzy handcuffs.

MAGAdeburger 1 point ago +1 / -0

You certainly can become an American via naturalization. You just can't become President. I'd have no problem amending that restriction. As long as you've been naturalized for 20 years, then eligible.

If people succeed in getting a convention of states, can anyone guarantee 100% that the people in charge of running it can be controlled? Who can GUARANTEE they will be prevented from going off and adding amendments that have nothing to do with the reason the convention was called in the first place? Who can stop them from going rogue and fucking the Constitution, the country, and every single one of us like what happened on January 6, 2021 when the most fraudulent election in the history of mankind was certified? Can anyone in this country GUARANTEE that nothing bad or unexpected would happen?

No. Nobody can guarantee anything, because a convention of states like this has never happened before. All previous amendments to the Constitution have been passed using other options. Nobody has any idea whatsoever how a convention would play out or what kind of evil and corruption could make its way in to boomerang the entire process. People calling for a convention are playing with fire....no, they're playing with something much worse than fire. Think of how a bunch of evil fucks played thousands of patriots on January 6, and what is happening to those patriots, and the rest of the country, today. What's to stop them from playing all the patriots at a convention in exactly the same way? What if a convention ended up accomplishing exactly the opposite of what everybody who called for it intended? Is that a chance worth taking?

The Constitution is a sacred document, consecrated by God. If we allow it to be changed to be something different, will it still be a sacred document?

Har-lea-quinn 5 points ago +5 / -0

I dunno about sacred, but this is an underrated comment.

We don't want to uproot the Constitution and start another Civil War. We want to take a fire ax to the overgrown weed of federal control and overreach then spray pesticide on the little bugs buried deep.

States don't need a convention, they just need to not play ball. Remember all those states declaring "sanctuary cities?" We need to be more like that - not so much in sanctuaries but in blatantly thumbing our nose at the fed and their perceived control. Refuse to accept "green new deals" and violations of the 2A. Refuse to recognize Brandon. Refuse to send troops. Refuse to cooperate with federal agents.

Congress gets its power from the States. If the States do not go along, Congress has nothing.

States should open up their own pipelines, make their own initiatives and govern themselves as they deem fit like the Founders intended. Congress was meant to represent the Union, not control it.

A Convention of States is more dangerous than russian roulette. The answer is for the individual states to take back the power that the Constitution granted them in the first place.

If I’m not mistaken, Sheriffs have powerful authority over all law enforcement, including federal agents in their state/county?

So DeSantis knew about Trumps raid?

2
BadMamaJama 2 points ago +2 / -0

You don't think this was an event Trump expected/planned to happen? Art of the Deal - don't give away anything for 'nothing'. Not only is there a new level of outrage from his supporters (well over half the country, my estimation), but I bet stuff was 'planted', perhaps on a hard drive, along with 'normal' Presidential stuff that the FBI might have been interested in. Can't confiscate a hard drive and pick and choose what you take from it . If a hard drive (with copies elsewhere) is in evidence, then the ENTIRE hard drive contents are in evidence. The info on this might be what keeps DJT from indictment. Too much compromising info on there against the sitting bunch in DC. Look at how Giuliani was raided, (I assume) to get some of the Hunter/Ukraine info into evidence.

this sounds like a vote up for Lincoln. The ends did not justify the means then, and they won't now.

https://communities.win/c/GreatAwakening/p/15IrL0JLSD/x/c/4Ob8wskZxRw

this is a link to a longer comment I made concerning Lincoln's treatment of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Lincoln also permitted states which remained in the Union to keep their slaves, while freeing the ones in the South. His mindset was more than anything else a phrase he repeated often: The Union must be preserved.

This is what getting yout country back. The people getting their power back looks like. Let's gladly take it back.

We now have a very good reason to do it and it is an imperative. Sheriff's also have to take their roles a bit more serious.

It is sheriff's who should be standing g direct between the people and the feds. And we should be right next to the sheriff with our own pitchforks.

You sheriff's out there. It's the people in your county you protect, not the feds rights to come in and harass your people. We have to stop venerating federal agencies as some superior entity. They don't work for rhe people.
