I have been against the Article V Convention for years, because it is dangerous. We need to make the federal government comply with the original US Constitution (as written). Congress needs to either stop controlling things that are reserved to the States according to the 10th Amendment, or send Amendments to the States to ratify new “enumerated powers”. This includes federal involvement in the Environment, Energy, Education, Retirement, Healthcare, Labor and more. Congress can decide what they want control and send out Amendments to make their involvement legal. Congress can decide what to return to the States and set up the transition.
All of the Constitutional Amendments that Congress has bothered to propose and have been passed were not Article V events. All were amendments written and submitted to the States for ratification. This is the safe way to do it.
Article V creates a State mandated 2nd Continental Congress of appointed representatives empowered to scrap the original Constitution and install a new one. Under Obama, this would have been the “New States Constitution” modeled after the Soviet Union.
False Flag Event
George Soros and 230 liberal non-profits were all supporting the Article V Constitutional Convention that started a couple of years ago. Now they are opposing it. Could it be because Trump is President and California is now interested in States Rights, so they can keep “sanctuary cities”? I think this a “false flag” event where Soros says he is against it to get States to support it? He doesn’t want Trump to revive the US economy, reverse Obama’s socialist agenda or return to the rule of law.
Former Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., now serves as a senior adviser to the Convention of States Project. In fact, he lays out the case for an Article V Convention in his new book “Smashing the DC Monopoly: Using Article V to Restore Freedom and Stop America’s Runaway Government.” He told WND that Soros and his organizations are getting worried because the Convention of States movement is gaining traction. This is a lie and makes no sense.http://www.wnd.com/2017/04/george-soros-fixes-eye-on-new-enemy/
Article V requires 34 States to request it and they are short.
