    For major change to be had a Convention of States or Civil War will have to happen.
    Both of which are bad ideas.


    There IS a third option, which involves evangelism.

    Oh, if I am doing something, I definitely want it pasted over the entire internet, and for weeks, with accomplices. Being a lone wolf would be stupid.

    George Washington, Patrick Henry, the group that wrote the Declaration of Independence - those kinds of serious boys knew that they'd be hung if caught... but they also had the courage of their convictions, and the justice of their cause.
    Problem is most people like to talk shit on the internet and want to crow about how bad-ass they are. Fact is these same people are the ones that will stab you in the back, and sell you out to save their own skins.

    Not if the only thing that is wanted is term limits.

    Which is something to be very skeptical about. To quote from the link above:

    What Is a Constitutional Convention?
    A Constitutional Convention is an official meeting of representatives of the people of a state or nation for the purpose of writing or amending its constitution. Article V of the U.S. Constitution provides two ways to propose amendments:

    1. Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments;
    2. Congress, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a convention for proposing amendments.
    The first method has been used 27 times; the second method has never been used. Any proposed amendments would have to be ratified by three fourths of the states before being added to the Constitution.

    An Article V Constitutional Convention would threaten individual rights and our nation’s very form of government. Individual rights are secured by the Constitution, and a Con-Con would have the inherent power to become a “runaway” convention that could completely change the Constitution. How do we know such a convention could become a “runaway”?

    There’s the precedent of the Philadelphia Convention of 1787, which completely rewrote the Articles of Confederation and changed the ratification procedure; and

    There’s the right of the sovereign people meeting in convention to alter or abolish their form of government (as stated in the Declaration of Independence), which could include rewriting the Constitution and changing the ratification procedure...

    With as many RINOs as we have, you'd have to have your head in the sand to believe that mischief isn't possible, if not likely.

    Agree with you! Instigators...who then become informants. Old saying was always watch out for the guys that want to "Do something"!
