There are numerous organizations promoting a Constitutional Convention under the guise of a Balanced Budget Amendment. Tom DeWeese wrote about the 10 Amendments for Freedom, Inc, chaired by William Fruth, President of POLICOM Corporation. He covered this in his articles, “Powerful Forces Calling for a Constitutional Convention,” and “Constitutional Convention Cannot be Controlled.”
Back in 1995, model resolutions for the Conference of States (COS) came from the National Council of State Legislators (NCSL), the organization that indoctrinates liberal (mostly Democratic) legislators, just as American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) does the conservatives (Republicans). The NCSL is presently backing the internet sales tax, and the rotten E-Verify.
He tells it straight up.
The guy interviewing seems to grow somewhat uncomfortable with what he is saying.
Jessie should have body~slammed him through the table.
For the ATS crowd much of the things he says wont shock us at all, but to have him speak on live TV and say these things is good to maybe shed some light on those who choose not to deny ignorance.
Campaign Spot reader Michaelwrites in, having examined the claim of the missing Republican voters — the drop off from McCain’s 2008 total to Romney’s 2012. Immediately after the election, many were left incredulous in response to the apparent news that Romney received 3 million fewer votes than McCain did.
…..Last night, I was rooting, of course, for Gary Johnson to break that 5% barrier. But, as between Obama and Romney, I favored the former. I did so for precisely the same reasons as I supported Obama vis a vis McCain in 2008: foreign policy.
My fear was that if elected, Romney would start a war with China, Iran, and who knows who else. In contrast, Obama had four years to do that, and refrained. Another reason: at least we can trust Obama to be the socialist, interventionist, moderate war-monger that he has proven himself to be. In contrast, with Romney, he has been on every side of every issue; you just can’t trust that man to cleave to any principle. Also, I’ll never forgive Romney for what he did to my man, Ron Paul. Yes, yes, Romney might have been better on economic policy than Obama.
Should our federal government be big and “green” or small and frugal? That question is likely to be at the heart of the final debate of the 2012 presidential campaign, when candidates Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party meet in an election eve debate between “alternative candidates” for president.

Basically, it’s coming down to NO ONE has ‘standing’ to file lawsuits against the government anymore, because they simply declare it so.
Everything is warrant-less, never mind the Constitution. (NOTE last weeks court case authorizing planting cameras on private property w/o a warrant.)
My forebear was James Wilson, signer of several founding documents and I swear as his descendant I will never accept the ‘new normal’ EVER.
