    Now this I believe, this is why I want a constitutional clarification, to make sure the right wing nuts don't remove our freedom from their religion and remove all gun laws. If you read this 'between the lines', the christian religion wants to rule the US with an iron fist, am sure as part of their NWO plan, sicko's icon_twisted.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    Will never happen. The world is changing and conservatives will just need to get over it or move to an island somewhere where they can live happily in their all-white, STRAIGHTS ONLY Wild Wild West utopia of unchecked corporate power and hourly mass shootings.

    Petitions being made are about a balanced budget. And it would still need approval of 3/4 of states. There is no credible evidence that some kind of Christian law is being stealthily pushed with those proposals.
    Also, contrary to what the article claims, most jurists agree that a convention would happen to discuss specific proposals and not a "free for all".

    Leftists are resorting to scaremongering not because they're afraid of guns or Christianity (those things aren't even up for debate), but because nothing terrifies them more than a balanced budget. No more obamaphones or handouts to "minority interest groups" if the federal government is suddenly forced to live within its means. Not that's a scary thought!

    I've warned of dangers of convening a Federal Constitutional Convention in the past on this forum (I think on a metta8 Wolfpac thread concerning Article V but I just looked and couldn't find it) and I'm glad to see this now beginning to be voiced more loudly. I do not believe the public is aware of the dangers.

    We need find patience with our fumbling (to correct campaign finance without opening a Constitutional can of worms, to await the passing of Scuzlia, etc. ) We need to stay the course set forth by our founding fathers. They were wiser than we. Be guided by those who put this together, not they who would tear it apart.

    there is no constitutional right to gun laws.

    Since the gun control lobby has failed in its usual homecourt( the courts)it actually has the most to gain from a constitutional amendment. Because the way things are now, all of the outright bans on guns are illegal. Several Supreme court cases have answered this.

    The NRA has the most to lose.


    There is a the supreme court and the option of constitutional convention. This option always has exist.

    Constitutional conventions are constitutional. May i suggest Venezuela maybe?

    I hate to break your ultra leftist heart but conservatives own a sizable majority of major assets in this country. If any group is going to be relegated to an isolated island, it is all you extremist liberal hens along with all the fanatical Hillary supporters. So be careful what you say because the total opposite of what you said could come true.

    Except that without the economy of bright blue states like California and New York, the red states -- which are full of poor, uneducated, inbred conservative trash -- would have no blue states to mooch off us while they take their illiterate cousins out on dates by horse and buggy.

    Actually, since none of the KKK nutjobs running on the Republican Party has a chance of matching even Romney's or McCain's vote totals against Hillary or any other Democrat, your prediction about what could come true is as stupid and laughable as your political party.

    If anything is stupid and totally baseless, it is your prediction of a 1964 style electoral sweep next year by the most unqualified and untrustworthy candidate, the hapless Hillary ho. You keep living in your ultra leftist fantasyland bunky. As for the blue states keeping the U.S. afloat what a nonsensical crock of shit. These blue democratic states have raided the federal treasury to pay for their endless, poorly planned, money grabbing initiatives to cover up for the horrendous failure of democratic monolithic rule in most older northern cities and their aging first ring suburbs. Look at places like Baltimore MD, Chester PA, Camden NJ, Niagara Falls NY, Youngstown OH, Gary IN, etc. they were all run into the sewer of urban decline, abandonment, and rampant political corruption courtesy of your trusted, beloved donkey dorks. You bunky are ignorance personified and should be denied the right to vote in 2016 because you are way too liberal and too stupid to know what is good for the U.S.

    Dont under estimate Trump and his stupid "Make America White Again" hat. External events could make his charismatic brash, unapologetic campaign work better than expected.

    Communist and/or Fascist
    they originally came to power touting to improve the average peep's lives. An American brand of totalitarian government could be along the lines; "an all-white America, STRAIGHTS ONLY, Wild Wild West utopia of unchecked corporate power and hourly mass shootings". Once in place, it would be very difficult to reclaim sanity. If the GOP dosnt have some sort of built in quality control your actually do them a favor sending them back to the drawing board. Remember G Bush got re elected but ultimately his legacy was junk.

    The economy is coughing, crawling to black numbers. People's lives are incrementally better. Success but this will make Americans more hawkish. It may be time for another war.

    Just saying dont underestimate.

    "an all-white America, STRAIGHTS ONLY, Wild Wild West utopia of unchecked corporate power and pro gun, hourly mass shootings"




    You must be psychic... I added pro gun. Unfortunately, this describes the right wing and their republican followers to the letter. By their very nature, they kind of circumvent 'all men are created equal' anyway.

    I suppose this is partly why they hate the constitution to begin with, it gives power to the individual. Meanwhile, religion has taken away that individual power because they think they should hold all the power and control.

    The constitution, as it was written, has a "built in" power struggle. The right wing wants to dissolve that and bring or keep the balance of power into their favor. This is how I see it. What's happening is the individual is balancing the scale, finally, as the constitution intended. The constitution is actually a threat to their hold on power
