Q. Isn’t having an Article V Convention Dangerous?

conventionIf you follow talk radio you know Mark Levin recently announced his latest book and the topic of it. He is calling for an Article V Convention of the States. He also suggests some topics for that convention he calls “The Liberty Amendments” Since the book is not yet out, I don’t know which topics he addresses or how he addresses them.

However the is a very good list of suggested amendments located at AmericanAmendment.com. Take a look.

But to address the particular question contained in the title of this post.

A. Yes. A Constitutional Convention, even an Article V Convention, contains an element of danger. When you recall that the people who signed the Declaration of Independence signed just below where it said, “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor,” it should be obvious that they also considered that to be a little bit risky.

Freedom really isn’t free nor is the quest for freedom without risk. They went up against the most powerful nation on earth and with enormous sacrifice they created something great. It was only the willingness to take great risk that made it possible.

The alternative to our being willing to take risks is also known. We are already sliding into a tyranny. Washington recognizes no limits on its power and no authority exists to force it to obey the constitution.

The NSA and other federal agencies spy on practically every email we send and phone call we make.

They collect “meta-data” from our cell phones which in plain language means they know every person we call, every place we go (thanks to a federal mandate that cell phones incorporate gps), everybody we regularly associate with, what time we get up, what time we go to bed, who we are sleeping with, which church we attend, where we shop. In short, the vague term “meta-data” means virtually everything you would think is private.

The IRS snoops into every aspect of our financial privacy.

The FBI admits it uses drones for domestic surveillance. The military is loaning drones to local law enforcement in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.

The federal government also provides funds for;

Police agencies across the country using automated license plate reading cameras to record our movements as we travel. And they store this data for years.
Jurisdictions installing facial recognition technology tracking us as we walk.

Google and other search engines, in bed with government, track everything we do online and give government access to that data. Microsoft coaches federal agencies on how to break the encryption included in Microsoft products. Facebook and other social media collect massive amounts of data about us by data-mining the web, linking it to

Great but It’s after here short working also.

our profiles and then share everything with the government. This is what fascism looks like.

All of this surveillance, invasive data-mining and corporate collaboration is directed against hundreds of millions of American citizens who are not in anyway suspected of any criminal activity. Clearly massive and egregious violations of the constitution but corrupt federal judges protect it all.

Not acting also has risk but very little chance for freedom.

It would sure stir things up. I only hope everyone could get along. So far that has been difficult. We’d need a few Ben Franklins in attendance.

Rogue, Sago, VB et al, on the subjects of the written word, rules of law, the respect for same, and danger; here is where my conservative journey has evolved in Year Five of the Age of Obama: It is time to confront a lawless executive with the raw power under the rule of law that remains at our disposal, i.e. the power of the purse held just now by the House. Well before Obama, the courts serially discarded obeisance to the written rule of law, especially including the supreme law of the land that was the Constitution of the United… Read more »

Sometime in the next three years Ruth Ginsberg will resign or die. She will be replaced by a Kagan – if not an overt Kagan, then a stealth Kagan. Sometime in the next three years Stephen Breyer will resign or die. Sometime in the next three years Anthony Kennedy will die. The resignations will be choreographed. The deaths may be heart attacks, strokes or car accidents. Any passage of new legislation or ratification of Constitutional amendments that may occur, their situational application to the current USA will be decided by The New Court. Personally, I think the Constitution we have… Read more »

Our government is becoming King. I see much of it in the executive branch. The ‘Departments’ have grown in number and size, and have strengthened that branch tremendously. To me, it doesn’t bother me as much that we KNOW at least a few Departments are corrupt, it bothers me more that when threatened with THE LAW, these Department heads figuratively – give us the finger. Too many heads keep smiling, and don’t even break a sweat. And if you disagree with me, ‘I did nothing wrong . . . and I take The Fifth.’ “. . . in America, THE… Read more »

Knowledge is power. If we don’t stop this power grab, we will lose liberty – which was the whole point of our republic. I believe we have a corrupt government that presents itself as two halves – D and R. The choices we are allowed are typically between evil and ‘lesser evil’.

I pray for God’s help for our nation, because – though I’ve met many constitutional patriots – I haven’t heard a hopeful solution from a person as of yet.
