On The #COS And The Redress Of Our Grievances
I’m becoming more and more of the opinion that the only reason for an Article V convention is to enact a single amendment – one that establishes and codifies the mechanism for states to leave the Union if they so wish.
As I say, I understand and I sympathize, but: we don’t need that Amendment, eC…
…That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness….
Besides, methinks offering such an Amendment would derail the whole COS process.
Since this whole Article V question was raised, I’ve been advocating that we try it, but that we must understand there is a good chance that, even if we get the Amendments we need implemented, it probably won’t work because the national government is so riddled with the Statist Cancer [Stage IV] our efforts will be thwarted by the Despots.
However, we must, I believe, seek such a non-violent Redress of our Grievances, as a last step before we seek other means that are within our Rights as Free Men to do [and our Sacred Duty to seek for our Posterity].
We must exhaust all non-violent means before we resort to whatever graver measures become necessary. That is one the Responsibilities we have as The Sovereign People of a Constitutional Republic.
