The commercial goes, “They go together in the good old USA, baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet.” I’ll add Mother’s Day and the US Constitution to the list.
Some things should never be changed. Many of us share a common angst over the direction our Country is headed. We may be able to agree on the problem, but there is a huge difference in how we approach the cure.
Changing our Constitution won’t fix our struggles and will only make them worse. An effort is underway to alter our Constitution. Those proposing a Convention of the States think if we have different laws it will make our Congress behave better. There are some good people pushing this idea and while they may not expect harm to come, they’re taking a gamble on our future. The most charitable way to treat this issue is to understand the naivete in which the proponents are submerged.
Saying “Sorry” won’t be enough to undo the damage if we lose our Constitution. People on both sides of the issue are so far apart that both can’t be right. There is no middle ground. The effort to change our Constitution may be well-intentioned, but once we lose it we will never be able to get it back.
We would walk through the door that only swings one way. The elected officials are in charge of the entire process. The people have no vote in the final result. That’s one of the risks of a Republic. The only hope we have is to inform and educate the representatives before they vote to push this idea further into the process.
Ideas from the left end of the political spectrum are often halted because of Constitutional restraints. The fact that those who don’t like our Constitution are supportive of this Convention of the States is a concern. This should be enough evidence for us to know it won’t end well.
The biggest reason I am opposed to it is because I have seen the ugly underbelly of government and I understand how deception and trickery work. Laws are passed every year with hidden words, ambiguous verbiage or a deletion of a critical word that alters the meaning altogether. These are just a few of the games politicians play. It’s called chicanery. While the idea sounds good in theory, it’s terribly flawed in practical experience.
That’s why government in all areas seem to be moving to the left regardless of which party is in the majority. I’m sure you’ve all heard the expression, “How could I have been so stupid”. Let’s do all we can to spread the word so this doesn’t happen to us.
What is your opinion on the idea of changing our Constitution through the Convention of the States?
1.) When folks bring up the idea of a Convention of the States, please have them listen to our show this week. We talk with Dr. Scott Bradley, expert on the Convention of the States. He will paint a clear picture of what’s at stake. You don’t have to be an expert on the subject as long as you can point them to others who can explain it.
2.) The Home Front Computer had a melt-down! As you can see from our photo, we’re grateful nothing worse happened. If you would like to contribute toward the computer replacement fund, please consider making it possible for the technical aspects of our outreach to continue.
We need your involvement to fund our ongoing research and equipment needs. If you want to continue to support us in this effort, you can mail a check to this address:
Cynthia Davis, 1008 Highway K, O’Fallon, MO 63366.
3.) If you have an event where you need a speaker, please let me know. I am dedicating my energy on the places where I can make the greatest difference. Please let the meeting organizer know that I can help your group understand the intersection of government and families in a way they may have never known before.
