The Convention of the States
A lot of people like our US Constitution—myself included! It was the best our Country could do to reflect the agreement of the citizens.
Some people don’t like our Constitution because it limits the expansion of government. There are a few current elected officials who want to promote Fascism, globalism or a one-world government, but they must first get rid of several parts of the Constitution. A popular philosophy is to flatten our Country so that we will be on the same plane with other nations, but that seems impossible since our Constitution acknowledges that people have foundational rights.
Left to their own ideology, it will take a long time to unravel the fabric of our society. The US Supreme Court has accelerated the rate of erosion in parts of the US Constitution by usurping the legislative process. However, the process could be expedited far more quickly if we just altered the Constitution.
There is a process whereby we can alter the Constitution. Any time 2/3 of the House and Senate agree to these changes and 3/4 of the states agree, we will see the Constitution changed.
Some people are saying that’s not good enough for them, even though it has worked this way 27 times already. There is another way allowed by the Constitution, but it has never happened yet. The States would call for the Constitutional Convention and then select their own delegates. The States would then come up with their own amendments and if 3/4 of the state legislatures or a non-elected body appointed by the states ratify, then the Constitution would be changed without the direct involvement of Congress.
The idea is to let the best and the brightest people from each State gather together and propose changes. Here’s my question: If we are already sending the best and brightest to Washington DC to reflect our values, can another group be more functional?
How you feel about the Convention of the States has everything to do with how satisfied you are with what the States are doing now and who you trust.
