Read on for the complete info you need.
Chauncey K. Gregory of SOUTH CAROLINA: S. 856 calling for a Constitutional
Convention: S. 856, calling for a Constitutional Convention, was reported out
of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Jan. 15, 2008.
South Carolina rescinded a previous call for a
Constitutional Convention for very good reasons.
Constitutional Convention is a legislative body; which operates ABOVE the
limitations of the Constitution, for the single purpose of changing the
Constitutional Convention more powerful, and MORE DANGEROUS, than any other
Constitutional Convention is a means of DESTROYING the American Republic.
Constitutional Convention is opening a "Pandora's box" for RADICAL
change. Once the "genie is out of the bottle" no one can control it.
The last time that we had a Constitutional
Convention was in 1789, when we got the Constitution that we now have. That
Constitutional Convention, which was convened in 1789, was to make some small
changes in the Articles of Confederation. Instead we got a new Constitution. We
were very Blessed that time. Those who were at that Constitutional Convention
were the leaders of a freedom movement; which had just defeated a tyranny.
Our problem TODAY has NOTHING to do with the Constitution.
Our problem has to do with the IGNORING OF the Constitution. Those who ignore
the Constitution would like nothing better than to make their usurpation legal,
by destroying the Constitution, at a Constitutional Convention.
YES, The Founding Fathers saw the possibility of a rare
situation arising calling for COMPLETELY SCRAPPING THE CONSTITUTION. That is
NOT what has happened TODAY. The only thing that has happened today is that
there is now a cabal of would be tyrants; who are getting tired of OCCASIONALLY
having to adhere to the
Constitution. These would be tyrants would like to con enough people into
to DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION, so that they can usher in totalitarianism. Having
a Constitutional Convention would be like letting your worst enemy giving you a
heart and lung transplant, and a castration to boot, as a cure for hiccups.
There already exists the ability to pass many state
laws to protect the people of South Carolina and other states from illegal
immigration. Most of these laws do not require any assault on the Constitution.
Laws of this sort have already been passed in Georgia and Oklahoma. Illegal
aliens are fleeing from those states in droves. Laws that are similar to those
in Georgia and Oklahoma are being considered in many other states.
If a small change in the constitution were truly
needed, then the appropriate way to make that change would be by an AMENDMENT
to the constitution. An AMENDMENT to the constitution (even as dramatic as that
is) does not put the entire constitution on the chopping block. THEREFORE, it
would be very easy to convert S. 856 (calling for a Constitutional Convention)
into a call for an amendment to the Constitution. All that is needed is a
Motion to Strike a few words:
first sentence of S. 856 as it stands NOW:
Concurrent resolution requesting the Congress of The United States to call a
convention for the sole and exclusive purpose of proposing an amendment on to
the Constitution of The United States to provide that..."
could be CHANGED to:
Concurrent resolution requesting the Congress of The United States to call for
an amendment to the Constitution of The United States to provide that..."
Please call your Senator and Congressman today with
this info in hand.
