Chuck introduced our speaker, Armando Escalante, a wiz on the CONVENTION OF STATES.
How safe is a CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION?
One of the slogans-the issue is never the issue, the issue is always the revolution
Not abt reigning in the Fed government, Revolution of the left is to overthrow America
Breaking down article V, which deals with amending constitution
Article V gives states the power to call a convention for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution-not so
The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendents to the Constitution. Convention movement is preying on the ignorance of people and conning the conservatives.
We have a runaway Federal Government and we’ve got to do something
and the only way to do that is call a convention. Can’t do it-Constitution already limits power of Federal Gov. already exists -they have another agenda.
Convention of States, not the same as Constittutional Convention.
Pluralism definition-a condition or system in which two or more states
Constitutional convention a duly constituted assembly of delegates or representatives of the people of a state or nation for the purpose of framing revising or amending its constitution.
The grassroots will be the engine that drives this project. Ideas coming from big leaders-Koch brothers, Soros, etc.
Natural law -God’s law
Self Evident truths
All men created equal
Creator Given Unalienable rights
Governments Purpose-Secure these rights
We are being told constitution is wrong and needs to be amended. We are prey to their conscience. Using physchologisl trickery.
Federal government, we have today, bears little resemblance to the Federal Gov defined by the Constitution. Congress has limited powers. Federal government has far more power than they should have. They should not have more power than the states.
We have to be well informed and alert to this.
Need to know Principles of constitution and who is running. How can we identify RINOs, globist, leftist.
We must rescind Florida’s applications calling for a Constitutional Convention. They trick us and use fear mongoring.
President Trump is God’s intervention.
We have dangerous people intent on overthrowing our government and want one world government.
If you want to learn what is going on, I encourage you to join The John Birch Society. We need to educate the electorate and our friends.
Only an informed electorate is going to save this country.
Our President, Chuck Collins thanked Armando Escalante for,this very educational and interesting talk. He also named TIM RYAN as our new MEMBERBERSHIP CHAIRMAN.
Bob Guidotti made a motion to adjourn meeting
Second Cal Gordon
Robyn Collins led us in the singing of GOD BLESS AMERICA, before we departed.
