    They are lining up folks. And what do you think the reason is? Is it because everything is so groovy in mainstream America? IDK.. :badgrin:

    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.
