Bet you didn't know that a new Constitution has been written for our states!
It is lurking... and supported by the "One Worlders".
It's the CONSTITUTION FOR THE NEWSTATES OF AMERICA, and can be found in the book, THE EMERGING CONSTITUTION by Rexford G. Tugwell, published 1974 (Harper and Row). "A Constitution for the Newstates of America", was prepared by a team of social experimenters at the CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS, Fund for the Republic (Ford Foundation), Post Office Box 4068, Santa Barbara, California 93103.
The Center, its first objective accomplished, has appointed socialist-oriented University of Denver Chancellor Maurice B. Mitchell as its new head and may merge with the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, a Colorado-based world government policy promotion agency.
Some analysis of this document can be found here.
Please read it.
The reason why I mention this is that some people are advocating for Constitutional Conventions to make changes and amendments to our Constitution. We should be very wary of a Constitutional Convention (Con-Con) because the whole Constitution can be changed and even replaced with something as obnoxious as this NewStates garbage. The warning signs are initiatives toward dissolving state, county, and local powers for centralized power. The NewStates Constitution ultimately seeks to control the population in "an emergency" (whatever government deems to be an emergency) and furthermore here are some other scary key parts:
Article 1-A Sec.1 - "Freedom of expression shall not be abridged except in declared emergency."
Article 1A Sec.8 - "The practice of religion shall be privileged..."
Article 1A Sec.15 - "Writs of habeas corpus shall not be suspended except in declared emergency."
Article 1B Sec. 8 - "Bearing of arms shall be confined to the police, members of the armed forces, and those licensed under law."
There is more - and I suggest you seriously take a look at this document... because it is where certain factions in government are marching us.
You should know by now that our current economic “crisis” is the vehicle to set up a new government, especially as states begin to show signs of falling into bankruptcy. With the continued polarization of our country over marriage and reproductive rights, parental rights and gun rights (to name a few) it is not surprising that people will easily fall for the notion that an amended Constitution will help preserve certain rights and even balance the federal budget, when in fact a Con Con will merely be a Con Job. It will in fact remove your rights and establish an elitist set of rules.
It is predicted that a document such as this NewStates Constitution would be adopted within 20 years time. There is a clear reason why the elites in power have created the financial situation that we are in, and have created a fear ridden population with regard to global terrorism. Case in point: We allow ourselves to be groped by government at airports. We allow our children to be treated as criminals in schools by being subjected to metal detectors, searches and and policing on school property. Our population is being trained and de-sensitized to constant surveillance and the trappings of a police state via traffic stops (etc.). People have gladly given up their rights - jettisoned their 4th amendment rights to privacy - for the illusion of "protection". They put devices in your car to track you, and eventually want to make it common for people to have chips in their bodies so they can be tracked like inventory. That's not freedom. That's not what our troops fight and die for.
We see the daily assault on the Constitution by the President and others in Washington. We witness daily their complete and utter disregard for the law, and we seem to be unable to do anything. We think we see the answer to blocking this disgusting seizure of power by perhaps thinking we can further bind their hands with some changes to the Constitution... but think again.
A Con Con is extremely dangerous.
Don't fall into this trap.
The only way in which we can halt the abuse of power is to use our existing laws - the power of impeachment - the tool of recall - and the many other devices we have which include free speech, free press, petition, peaceful protest. We must remain committed to voting the people out of office who abuse their office and who violate their oath of office... and yes, we must be totally committed to vigilance in holding honest elections. We must be vigilant for we have for too long been trusting and allowed the wrong people to be driving this bus we call America. Probably the best way to thwart the federal government's continual power grab is for States to invoke their 10th amendment rights!
Article 1, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution enumerates the only powers that Congress has. All other powers belong to the States!! Congress has absolutely no power to write laws and mandates regarding health-care, education, gun rights, food safety, vaccinations, and anything else to control our lives - and when they do pass laws relating to those issues, those laws should only apply only to territories and possessions of the United States. (Read the last Clause  in Article 1, Section 8).
Finally - It should be totally understood that the President can not, and should not, operate as a dictator issuing Executive Orders or mandating Agencies to ignore the Law. That he does this and is not taken to task for it is not only Congress's fault, but ours as well.
Anyway, we apparently have had decades of government run amok.
It must not continue.
It is entirely up to us - We the People - to restore the Republic.
Our government is based on The Consent of the Governed.
With regard to what we are witnessing coming out of Washington,
I do not Consent.
