We are at a very important crossroad, with the national debt reaching 27 trillion, that means every single person in this country is in hock to the tune of $84,589 bucks. Congress loves spending other peoples money and you are not going to get 67 Senators to vote for a balanced budget to change the way they’re doing business.
We have Constitutional crisis. If you sent for a copy of the Constitution from Library of Congress it would cost you $130 and consist of 2,800 of case law rulings from the Supreme Court. So what we have is the Judiciary bypassing the Constitution. The belief is there is no right or wrong but what ever the current society and government wants.
The people of the United States are the owners of the Congress and the Courts and when these two take on a life of there own, it’s time to change who’s in charge, whether they are elected or appointed. Term limits would take care of the out of control life appointments and elected legislative members that in rich themselves by pushing through legislation that benefits special interest not their constituents.
Bureaucracies have become the fourth branch of government. Bureaucracies are writing laws faster than Congress that favor agencies like Planned Parenthood, National Education, Dept. of Energy, Dept. of Transportation and there are many more over 115 total that are not supported by the Constitution. Congress can vote to eliminate these bureaucracies that are not provided for in the Constitution. But because of the fear of the retribution that they would face and in some cases they are tied to them through campaign funds. In any case they are not going to vote to cancel any of these agencies.
So what’s the best way to put the brakes on? The Convention of States which is supported by Article V of the United States Constitution, was put in the Constitution for when Washington D. C. over steps the bounds of the intent of limited government.
The way Article V reads, it would take the control of the government out of Washington D.C. and put the people back in control of the government. This is all explained in the information provided at: conventionofstates.com
