Martin Armstrong Warns Of 2016 Constitutional Convention | Zero Hedge

A very interesting political development has taken place, but you can bet the Democrats will fight tooth-and-nail to prevent it. This week the state legislature of Michigan became the 34th state to demand a “Constitutional Convention” in the United States.

Constitutional conventions in other countries have been easily hijacked. The most common result is not improvement; rather dictatorship.

Did Michigan Just Trigger A Constitutional Convention?

I’m not sure if a “Constitutional Convention” is a good idea. What if it’s hijacked by the left? After all most Republicans are wimps who melt under media pressure…

Via Fox News:

Momentum is building behind what would be an unprecedented effort to amend the U.S. Constitution, through a little-known provision that gives states rather than Congress the power to initiate changes.

At issue is what’s known as a “constitutional convention,” a scenario tucked into Article V of the U.S. Constitution. At its core, Article V provides two ways for amendments to be proposed.

The first – which has been used for all 27 amendment to date – requires two-thirds of both the House and Senate to approve a resolution, before sending it to the states for ratification.

The Founding Fathers, though, devised an alternative way which says if two-thirds of state legislatures demand a meeting, Congress “shall call a convention for proposing amendments.”

The idea has gained popularity among constitutional scholars in recent years — but got a big boost last week when Michigan lawmakers endorsed it.

As far as I can tell, not all the states listed are calling for convention on the same merits, some are proposing adding one certain amendment and others are proposing adding a different one. The Indiana call is for a balanced budget amendment, the Maryland one (from what I can tell...?) is calling for limits on campaign donations.

If a convention is called upon, it's unlikely to result in all three fourths of the states agreeing on whatever proposals are out there.

I think most of this is just for political show, and not actually trying to amend the constitution. From what I can tell, the Constitution has never had an amendment added via three fourths of the state legislatures voting on it.

I’m not sure if a “Constitutional Convention” is a good idea. What if it’s hijacked by the left?
Then everything it passes, will be thrown in the trash can when it comes time for states to ratify it.

Had you forgotten that a Constitutional Convention (ConCon) cannot change the Constitution?

All it can do, is offer proposals. No different from Congress when it passes amendments with the required 2/3 vote of heach house.

Once it passes something, it must be ratified by 3/4 of the states... or it goes in the trash can.

So don't get paranoid over a ConCon being "hijacked by the left". A ConCon is just one small piece of the puzzle.

The Framers made sure that the final decision on whether to modify the Constitution or not, rests with the people FURTHEST REMOVED from the central government in WashDC as possible. There was a reason for that.

In fact, the American people don't want the extreme-left agenda that current Democrat leaders are pushing. And the states will refuse to ratify anything produced by a "hijacked" ConCon.

The bad news is, while 34 states can force Congress to call a ConCon, it's Congress who actually calls it... and decides who is in it.
