It has been 226 years of willful neglect in violation of law, the constitution and oaths of office. Finally, a Hawaiian activist, Dan Marks, wrote the right letter which got a response exposing the neglect. A state legislator has taken action and it looks like a new, historical house rule is coming up U.S. House finally adopts rule to count Article V Convention applications - National Progressive Examiner.com Time to wake up sleepy Americans. An infiltrated government is destroying your futures while main stream media lies to you after government education DID NOT communicate to you the truth about what your republic is and how to enforce its principles. Wake up or pay the price! Each in denial will be guilty of supreme neglect. The price of this cannot be overstated. America is the only nation on earth that has mechanisms of change built into its constitution that are adequate to model appropriate human activity to meet the future we are creating for ourselves, to survive and to evolve. Informed Americans need to conduct some critical thinking. Of course I know, you don't or won't (if sincere), that it is possible that covert, cognitive infiltration has altered your world view and you are disabled from putting all of the information together that is in this thread. What is shared in this thread could easily surround all American politics, because they are not functional and the powers that be know it. That dysfunction has been cultivated for a reason. Perhaps to cultivate a false need or vacuum for control, that ultimately destroys the principals of the 1787 constitution beyond any hope of recovery. Mark Levin urges states to take back your power from runaway Obama WashingtonExaminer.com By Paul Bedard Via the Washington Examiner- The building national movement for a constitutional convention to block President Obama's executive orders got a huge boost Thursday when leading advocate Mark Levin urged state lawmakers to throttle all of Washington, including Republicans. "Take your power back," he demanded of the hundreds of lawmakers attending the American Legislative Exchange Council convention on Capitol Hill. "You are the last line of defense of liberty." Levin got star billing because a focus of the winter meeting of the limited government group is pushing for a convention of states, a project of the Citizens for Self-Governance, who sponsored the top talk show host who recently wrote a book laying out constitutional amendments the nation should consider. He described a nation that is morphing into a "post-constitutional" crisis where state legislatures are "irrelevant," and the president and Congress do whatever they want, and nobody in Washington provides checks and balances. "We have a president of the United States who says, 'Hey, Congress won't act. I will.' Excuse me? Well what's that? Sounds like a runaway convention to me," he said. Ditto for Republicans. "Throw out the establishment Republicans and others who are stopping you from doing what you need to do," Levin urged. To applause, he pushed legislators to consider a convention of 2,000-3,000 delegates to review procedures for hosting a constitutional convention as a warning shot to Congress and the White House. "That alone would shake up this city," he said. While Levin and convention proponents have support, some at the ALEC event said it was too radical a move, and a few cited criticisms that a conservative-led convention would go too far. Levin rejected the concerns about a "runaway convention," noting that the Constitution requires many states to approve any action, making it unlikely that a radical idea would get through. He dismissed critics, and added that proponents are simply trying to save the Constitution. "Ignore these idiots," he said of critics, adding about his backers, "we're not some cult over here. We're the majority." ----------------- What is Mark Levin saying? There is one inconsistency, or maybe I'm not hearing him right. He says at 9:37 - again at 10:14 "Less than 7 of you in the same room." Them at 29:30 to 30:30 he describes many more people involved. The latter situation is what I would expect, the former is what I would worry about IF he is talking about ratification. I worry because ALEC could easily control a few in 3/4 of the states. The former he is speaking directly to state legislators encouraging them, in the latter he is ridiculing those that fear a runaway convention.
