Strange I haven't heard a single mention of the supposed plan for a convention. So is this some secret plan being plotted?
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
(We ALREADY have Democrats.)
Not precisely true.
It would be more accurate to say we already have Politicians.
And if by now you have not realized that every Politician is out for themselves.
They treat the Taxpayer as their own personal banks.
Sadly, there is an incredible amount of incorrect information and outright intentional disinformation that has shaped so many views about the Article V convention option that our beloved Founders gave us in OUR Constitution because they correctly foresaw that citizens would eventually lose trust in the federal government. Fear has been intentionally instilled in so many people who really want to keep the current, status quo and corrupt political system. Open your mind and go to Welcome to Friends Of the Article V Convention to learn all the true facts about the Article V convention option. If you fear a convention, then you have been brainwashed - not your fault, of course, but you can correct this by learning the truth.
For example, there are safeguards so that you really do not have to fear what a convention might PROPOSE. Because anything it proposes must be ratified by 3/4 of the states, which is a very tough hurdle to overcome. Plus, imagine the incredible public and media attention to the nation's first Article V convention.
Our group Friends of the Article V convention is a nonpartisan national group with the single mission of compelling Congress to obey the Constitution and give us the first Article V convention. We do not advocate for or against any specific amendment.
2. We already have that (bailouts, anyone?).
3. Already have that (search and seizure/repossession).
4. Already have that (prison system).
5. Uhhh?! Already have that! Hello! Since religion is a political device used worldwide, they actually are a potential threat to national security, though.
6. This... is appalling.
I also wanted to mention: in that they are the commander in chiefs of our military, United States presidents should definitely have served in the military. And ranked.
They're calling for a constitutional convention, which you do NOT support. Tell us WHY you don't support it, please.To help the public understand the difference between an Article V Convention, which FOAVC fully supports, and a "constitutional convention" that would rethink the entirety of our current Constitution, which FOAVC emphatically does not support;
