Article V

Lefties believe that the founders of the US were bitter people who clung to guns and religion, and that the constitution needs to be altered.

The Constitution prescribes a process for doing that, which doesn’t mention anything about the president acting unilaterally. In fact, the president has no part in the process.

Article V

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

  1. Insight into the progressive mind set: a friend of mine posted a link to an article about how Indian farmers were committing suicide. Poor indian farmers had purchased GM seeds. The harvest failed. They had no money to pay for the seeds now. Prince Charles blamed GM crops for the problem (Charles being the expert authority in the article) and my friend agreed. I posted a comment suggesting that perhaps the problem arose from bad weather?

    The question I posed was immediately deleted.

    Steven,

    Look at this garbage! Road blocks asking for DNA. Whether voluntary or not, there is absolutely no reason for a federal agency (NHTSA) to perform their DNA survey on the nations roadways. They are meant for travel, not tyranny.

    • From the above link: “They want to find out of all the people surveyed, how many people were driving with alcohol in their system, or prescription drugs, things like that.”

      I don’t consider that a good enough reason for such an intrusive “study”, especially because I doubt they could get reliable statistics, only from those who are of a mind–for whatever reason–to accept a little money for being so imposed upon. They get statistics from a “compliant” group, but so what? It kind of sounds more like they want to find out how many Americans can be easily conned out of, or bought off from, one of our basic freedoms, of free movement within the country, or freedom from unwarranted detainment.

    This is a very, very important item. However we now have a huge problem, and it ironically centers around the unlucky number “13”, which also happens to be the number of original colonies at the time of the founding.

    The last chance for the USA to be saved without wide-scale bloodshed in a revolution is the “Hail Mary” pass thrown to a States sponsored Constitutional Convention ( with no Congressional guidance because that would be a huge conflict of interest ). A series of Amendments that scale back FedGov and also address some State matters could possibly put the genie of Big Government Neo-Feudalism back into the bottle. Maybe.

    Unfortunately all our wonderful moderate and conservative commentators have stopped that effort at every opportunity, spreading FUD about the consequences. Meanwhile the domestic enemies of the Constitution with no such moral compunctions have capitalized upon that FUD and drove through truckloads of de facto Amendments with and without the courts, so you might say we have already had a new Constitution in effect anyway.

    The cost of that inaction? We most likely have now crossed the threshold of 13 States that would fail to ratify an Amendment that rolls back big government. 38 States needed for 3/4 ratification is completely defeated by 13 States. That number, being the same as the original colonies is a kick right in the balls of the USA.
