Constitutional Convention

Our system of government is beyond repair. I notice American thought is about 25 – 30 years behind mine, so with any luck you’ll catch up. I just won’t see it in my lifetime. My first post on Donald Trump was in 2010 as an example. I saw the transition in terminology starting about 1990, where illegal aliens became undocumented immigrants, to now where they are just ‘immigrants’.

I saw what was happening in slow-motion 30 years ago with all that. I even took a letter down to their front desk on that very subject when they were at their original building at 5th & Locust (?). I saw what was happening with NAFTA in ’93. The communist takeover of the schools. The impact of constant military intervention around the world and how it would cause everyone to resent us.

The complete turnover of manufacturing to China. As in my previous post, ‘Total Political Consciousness‘, watching these things in slow-motion that to normal people whiz by over their head, too fast to see them. This one is so childlike, its so First Grade, that I’m embarrassed to bring it up! And what makes it worse is it won’t even register with people! Its so basic, elemental and fundamental, but they still won’t get it!

How can you expect your system of government to work when the people who write the laws are taking money from the people they are supposedly ‘regulating’?” Isn’t that embarrassing? That I should have to point that out to allegedly smart people? Graft is written into the system and you think its going to work? Its ridiculous. Then those same Congressmen the day after they leave, can join those lobbying firms!

A fundamentally flawed system and people go out and vote every 4 years like this time its going to work! Absolute lunacy. It never changes. There’s been no catalyst to effect that change, yet for some reason people think it will (what those magic properties are escape me). Nothing ever gets done. We are $27 trillion in debt with nothing to show for it.

Illegals waltz in, jobs waltz out. Less than 3 weeks before the election, and Washington is so dysfunctional they can’t even agree to buy votes with a new “stimulus package”! Think about that, they can’t even come together long enough to pass out money! They have hit rock bottom. Rephrase: We have hit rock bottom.

Its clearly time for another Constitutional Convention. A total reset. A new government. What’s ironic was that the original one over the summer of 1787 as I understand it was actually just to tweak the Articles of Confederation, not to come up with a new Constitution. Here we need to, and the crooks refuse!

“The lesson that Americans today have forgotten or never learned — the lesson which our ancestors tried so hard to teach — is that the greatest threat to our lives, liberty, property, and security is not some foreign government, as our rulers so often tell us. The greatest threat to our freedom and well-being lies with our own government!

T.P.C.

Total Political Consciousness. Most people never reach it. Only took me 6 decades (huffs on knuckles in a superior manner). Ordinary people go to vine covered buildings for 4 years supposedly to achieve it, and come out dumber than they went in. That is why I’m here. Election season has crystalized it for me. I saw a fundraising ad for Trump this morning, “Donate in the next 30 minutes and your donation will be tripled!” My response? So?

Even if you do keep the Senate you won’t have the House, like you did in 2017 / 2018. So what is it you’re supposedly going to do in another 4 years that you couldn’t do in the first 4? You’re not going to do anything. I understand you’d like to, but political reality is you can’t. That got me thinking about the Ernst vs Greenfield Senate race. The best ad Greenfield could run is, “Why does Ernst need 6 more years?” Another 6 years to do nothing?

That doesn’t make a lot of sense. Republicans had campaigned the entire Obama years that they were going to repeal Obamacare when they got in! Well, they got in. Did they do anything? Of course not. The language has changed a little bit, but they’re basically campaigning on the same issues they were 52 years ago in the 1968 election.

Same issues as today, Democrats still rioting in the streets, nothing’s changed. The Republican’s slogan is essentially: “We’re not as bad!” They promise to drive off the cliff at a responsible 55 mph, not zooming off like the Democrats! The people want term limits, they’ve wanted them for a longtime. But for some reason it just never happens.

One of the organizations you’d think you’d be able to get some support on this, is the John Birch Society. But no, they don’t want to have the Constitutional Amendment required for that. They take this Pollyannaish stance saying its up to the voters to vote out the bad seed. No matter how many decades go by and it doesn’t happen, this insist that for some unsupported reason, that it soon will.

They’re also AWOL on the other ‘last ditch’ effort to get this country back on track. This government as currently configured cannot ever work. The most obvious reason being that we allow Congress to take money from the very people that they are supposed to be regulating. I’m sorry if that’s a rather Kindergarten notion, but it also happens to be true. The very definition of graft.

So when you have a government that corrupt, there is no reform of course, it has to go. The 2 ways to do that within our system is either by Constitutional Convention (a complete reset), or Convention of the States, a fundamental overhaul. That’s it, those are the only 2 options. But for some reason the groups like the John Birch Society are totally against this.

They fear would could happen with the Constitutional can opened, but for some reason they don’t fear what is happening. You’re headed straight for the cliff, and unless you change course, you’re going over. But for some reason JBS thinks that even though they’ve done the exact same thing 100 times and nothing has changed, this time, the 101st, is going to be different!

It makes no sense. They never have the answer to the question: What is your catalyst for change? Why will this time be different? Its the same with people who continue to vote, why? Why is this time going to be different? Everything that makes this government inoperably corrupt is still in place, on what basis do you think things will change?

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!
