Beware of Con-Cons: State Legislators Warn Against a Constitutional Convention

with one comment


Rumors and Measures involving Federal Con-Con Calls are growing. Here are just a few I found.

  1. ND: ND amendment would restrict federal debt increases
  2. VA: LeMunyon’s Repeal Amendment Passes House
  3. UT: Holding Out for a Hero
  4. TX: Governor also wants lawmakers to push for federal balanced budget amendment
  5. IN: Time for a rewrite?
  6. FL: Bad idea to change the Constitution

This a call to all Americans to tell your local officials to oppose a Con-Con and rescind any outstanding calls currently pending.
This threat is nothing new. This battle has raged for some 30 plus years, however, this particular round is especially dangerous because there are several effective dis-information groups promoting it at the local level across the country. Many new conservative Tea Party Candidates need an education. You need to provide that education. So here are some materials to get you up to speed on the issue first so you can have an impact.

Here is a pack of documents to help you in the process: “No Con-Con Documentation Packet“.
The youtube video above is available on DVDs and audio CDs.

I have read the many objections to the current system which they wish to redress and I concur with most of the arguments. I do not, however, subscribe to the idea that the current Constitution is flawed. Without exception, all the reasons for redress are a direct result of not adhering to the current Constitutional limits in place. So we are not faced with a problem related to system or form, but rather a problem of enforcement of governmental limits already in place. Read the rest of this entry »
