Con-Con Con

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Well, I told you that I viewed “The Cartel” movie, and I recommended it Here .Well, I signed up on an e-mail list, at the meeting, to receive a position paper, and news and information from the Fort Wayne 9/12 group.  So it was no surprise this morning when I received an e-mail to support an initiative (SJR5) in Indiana calling for a Constitutional Convention (a Con-Con) to demand a balanced budget.  My emotions overran my little cup, and I became very, very afraid.

What’s to be afraid of?

I hear my dear readers asking – whaddyascared of Milton?  And the brief answer is the *Ruling Class* members of Congress.  The same people that voted for ObamaCare, for the misnamed food safety bill; fear of those arrogant bastards that never heard of a new law that actually is derived from the authorized Article I Section 8 grant of Power to congress.

Why would we trust the people that have CREATED much of the problem, to monkey with a Constitution created by God-fearing Statesmen?  Could the goofs that we have in power today actually make an improvement?  You see, once 2/3 of the states have requested an Article 5 Con-Con, regardless of the purpose, all of the Constitution can end up being changed.  This is very dangerous.  Very dangerous, indeed.

So, I would encourage…

any (and all of you) that think that our budget can be balanced by the people that have been overspending against our budget for most of my years on Earth, to reconsider.  Why don’t they just cut spending?  Why risk having them repeal the entire Bill of Rights? It could happen under the rules.  And if you know who the Ruling Class is, and what motivates them, you ought to be fighting tooth fang and nail AGAINST any new provisioning of power.  We certainly don’t want the “Are you Serious” crowd tinkering with that most important part of the Great Experiment that they swear an oath to, and don’t even follow their own oath.

Following is the bulk of my e-mail response to the 9/12 group:

We share the desire for our country to have a balanced budget, and even to behave as individual American families behave, regarding budgets.  This call for a constitutional convention is an extremely frightening prospect to me, and others.  It essentially puts the whole American Constitution “up for grabs” as a discussion tool.  Do we really want to entrust “The Great Experiment” to many of the same people that brought us “ObamaCare” and other 20,000 page abominations?  I think not.
A much clearer explanation of the dangers lie in the following article:

Our friends at the New American magazine have several other articles that discuss how risky a constitutional convention would be, given the unreliable nature of those public servants actually following their oath of office.  You can find a list of them here:[0]=content

It is my most sincere hope that you will review the dangers before pushing for political pressure to achieve this goal.  Only through informed consent can we assure the lasting changes that will indeed preserve liberty for our posterity.

      Hey, Pam,
      We have to be careful what we ask for. Remember that the Constitution that we have was “only” supposed to be a little *tweaking* (clarification) of the Articles of Confederation. The delegates really had no authority to write a new document.
