Mother’s Day and the Constitution

This is a picture of me with my mom.  I’m grateful to still have her around. If you still have a mother, make sure you do something special to honor her this weekend.

 

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.

Is there a way to improve our US Constitution?  Want to learn the latest scoop on the Article V Convention?  Join us for a rousing discussion with Randy Stufflebeam, Vice-Chairman of the Constitution Party.  Randy will share with us the insider’s track on the real issues embedded into the Article V Convention.

Mark Levin has created quite a stir among conservatives and TEA Party types with his proposed Liberty Amendments. This has many talking about an Article V Convention, or “convention of the states” as some are calling it. However, conservatives and Constitutionists are divided as to the wisdom of calling a convention to amend the US Constitution.

If you were able to hear our show with Dave Cort, you won’t want to miss this episode to offer you the counter points we all must realize as we continue this important debate.

We are doing our part —with Cindy Redburn, Randy Stufflebeam and his wife, Lisa, in Back to Basics Christian Bookstore

Sometimes when  we hear news about the state of our country and our economy, we can tend to feel like nothing is making a difference.  Yet, we have a few bright spots to share with you.  One of the highlights was launching our pod-cast.

Last week, we BROKE ALL RECORDS for the number of people listening to our show.  Do you believe people can change the course of the country by throwing new ideas into the media marketplace?  While many unthinking Americans appear to be gobbling up whatever slop the mainstream media throws into the feeding trough, I am here to serve a balanced meal filled with the kind of nutritious ideas that can make our country healthy again.

Dave Cort on the Proposed Article V Convention

Play

Are you concerned about the erosion of our US Constitution?  The Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches don’t seem to be concerned about it.  What options are available to the states to wrestle back control?  The Article V Convention is an idea being floated around the state legislatures whereby the states would get together and propose changes to our constitution.  Do you like that idea or not?

Tonight we have an extra special guest, Dave Cort, founder of the Missouri Grassroots Radio Network.  Dave has studied this question and has some thoughts to share with us on how an Article V Convention can happen and why it should happen.  If you have an opinion on the idea of making changes to our constitution, you need to listen and are guaranteed to learn.

A Convention of the States

A Convention of the States

Last week at the performance of the St. Charles County Christian Home Educators Bel Canto Choir. This is a photo with Tracey Sutton at the Twin Oaks Estate in O’Fallon. We were greeted by a wonderful audience of residents, and they enjoyed hearing our Christmas songs.

One of the best parts about the Christmas season is the opportunities to get together with others.  While most of us are spending our energies baking cookies, singing carols and shoveling snow, some state legislators are thinking about how to protect our country from the constitutional abuses we are seeing from the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of our government.

While the news media outlets have been carrying plenty of stories of how our congress continues to make bad decisions, most of us can only feel disappointed and frustrated.  So far, the only remedy we have been offered is to change our elected officials whenever they come up for election again.  Another election occurs, they get reelected, and we end up with another term of disappointment and frustration.
