Gohmert Calls for Amendment Convention by States

http://gohmert.house.gov/index.cfm?s...125&itemid=805

Quote:
U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) calls upon at least the 39 states that are disputing the Federal government’s latest power grab to review Article V of the U.S. Constitution and consider proposing an amendment to stop the runaway Congress and White House.

Decent idea, hope it gains traction.

1/19/09, the last day of Free America.
Pericles "Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it. "

"[T]he people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it." --Samuel Adams

I believe this is the way to go, not only for this issue but for the huge debt problem which Washington is unwilling to stop on their own and needs to changed in the constitution.

Very bad idea!


If you open it up, every thing is fair game.

With this many liberals in congress, do you really want them to open it up?

Possibility's, of bad things coming out of this are endless.



All men should know Honor first, above all else!

Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.

Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.

Wrong

Those calling for the convention can limit the scope.

"If not, by age 20, you are a liberal, then you have no heart. If not, by age 30, you are a conservative, then you have no brain.
