Leash Being Prepared for Congress


www.wnd.com

A nationwide effort to increase the ability of the states to put a leash on federal power has taken a step toward reality with the introduction of the Repeal Amendment into both Houses of Congress.

The proposed constitutional amendment would check the power of the federal government by permitting a vote by two-thirds of the states to override an act of Congress.

Thus far 13 state legislatures have backed calling an Article V convention to force Congress to consider the amendment, according to RepealAmendment.org Executive Director Marianne Moran, who has been spearheading the national effort to pass the amendment.


It has been argued before that enough votes have been cast in the past to mandate an Article V Convention, but that the federal government has completely ignored the mandate. So it won't be easy.


The amendment has not been without its opponents, who compare it with the 19th century effort at nullification, whereby states such as South Carolina attempted to nullify federal laws they felt infringed on their rights. Many historians regard the movement as one of the precursors to the Civil War.


Well I for one believe that recent state conflicts with federal laws and mandates are most definitely pointing in that direction. Take Arizona for example. The federal government SUED the state when it simply tried to enforce the federal government's own immigration laws- which it is not enforcing itself.

This is one Amendment I feel is very necessary at this point, considering the federal government is long out of control, corrupt, bankrupting us, and killing our military for all the wrong reasons. Has my support 100%!

"Do we want state governments to have the power to repeal foreign policies, for instance?"


Abso-friggin-lutely!

When foreign policies include earmarking billions of dollars of foreign aid to places like Egypt and Jordan when we can't even find jobs on a local level, you are darn straight. There shouldn't be one more red cent giving out to ANY country (with the possible exception of EXTREME natural disasters) until we fix our own problems at home.

I'm not the biggest know-it-all when it comes to politics, but I definitely would like a way for the states to reign in congress a little bit. I'm tired to congress passing these unconstitutional laws while the general populace sits idly by. It's probably going to be an uphill battle, but it definitely has my support. Lol and hell if it leads to a civil war then maybe that's just what this country needs.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, 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.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Yeah, and how about a cage too!

Leash Being Prepared for Congress


This could backfire big time. Once a Constitutional Convention is convened the WHOLE CONSTITUTION can be REWRITTEN!


Is this the typical Wolf in sheep's clothing of the Fabian Society???

After Congress GAVE control of our food system to the World Trade Organization by a huge majority (2/3???) I do not trust the criminals in Washington to babysit and eighteen year old much less rewrite our Constitution!

What we need is for the states to grow a pair and ENFORCE the Constitution we already have!

A good reference: www.usconstitution.net...

This is the Fabian society philosophy:


...Consider this quote from George Bernard Shaw, one of the founders of the Fabian Society:


"Under Socialism, you would not be allowed to be poor. You would be forcibly fed, clothed, lodged, taught, and employed whether you liked it or not. If it were discovered that you had not the character and industry enough to be worth all this trouble, you might possibly be executed in a kindly manner; but whilst you were permitted to live, you would have to live well."



In 1942, Stuart Chase, in his book "The Road We Are Traveling" spelled out the system of planning the Fabians had in mind; the interesting thing is to look at that plan in comparison to 2008 America.


1. Strong, centralized government. - [CHECK-CV
]


2. Powerful Executive at the expense of Congress and the Judicial. - [CHECK-CV
]


3. Government controlled banking, credit and securities exchange. - [CHECK-CV
banker controlled]


4. Government control over employment.

5. Unemployment insurance, old age pensions. - [CHECK-CV
]


6. Universal medical care, food and housing programs. - [CHECK-CV
]


7. Access to unlimited government borrowing. - [CHECK-CV
]


8. A managed monetary system.

9. Government control over foreign trade. - [CHECK-CV
under the control of WTO]


10. Government control over natural energy sources, transportation and agricultural production.

11. Government regulation of labor.

12. Youth camps devoted to health discipline, community service and ideological teaching consistent with those of the authorities.

13. Heavy progressive taxation. - [CHECK-CV
]



I see eight of the thirteen already accomplished, with strong movement toward the rest....



The Fabian Society began in England in 1887 by a very small group of elitist socialist that sought to reform society gradually into one of socialism instead of through violent revolution. At first their purpose was to be an alternative in Britain for the more dominate Marxist Social-Democratic Federation, but their true goal was to accomplish socialism through a very gradual process using the voting booth and representative democracy as their instrument of change. In fact, one of their symbols is a Turtle with the motto: "When I Strike, I Strike Hard". Another symbol is the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing and the Globe on an Anvil being hammered into the Fabian model.


And there is this:


One stroke of genius was that instead of advocating a Socialist State, they assisted in the implementation of the Welfare State, which as we should all know is merely a few steps away from a purely Socialistic State. It was, of course, implemented gradually, and played upon the weaknesses of human nature to gain popularity. Unlike the usual Socialist points of views, the Fabians didn't advocate complete State ownership of businesses, industry, agriculture or land, instead they sought to involve the State into very specific areas of importance such as electric power production, transportation, precious metals and of course, credit. The remaining balance of economic systems would be left to the private sector however; it would be highly regulated by the State and operated according to the wishes of the State.


A gradual take over by moving the country to a welfare state and government control...

The really frightening thing is the Fabians have been educating World and Banking leader's for a century via the Rhodes Scholarships (Clinton) and the London School of Economics at Oxford University.

I have to agree with you.

While the issue under which this is being suggested sounds like a good one, I think the potential danger of this being a honey pot is very great. Especially with corporate globalists currently wielding so much political power.

You dont bait a hook with something the prey doesnt want, you pick the fattest tastiest worm you can find.

The thought of this is the blatent takeover of the U.S.A. The NWO is and has this agenda and the bilderberg group is under pressure right now and needs to take swift action using the harrp and end times scenario and the nibiru thing. Nothing is happenning that is not controlled by the harp. I have investigated and in time i will give the info of the WAVE.

opening the constitution to editing is extrordinarily dangerous in this ignorant time..Expect the "bothersome" first amendment; second, and fourth to be neutered or just written away.

I am sure to regret not reading through the thread before replying,
but speechless joy, a flag and star for this find! Thank you TRUE!
This seems all to easy a solution to a runaway Federalist bunch
of JuggerNuts! Too many ex-points I know-- but will hold my breath
for this one coming to Barry's desk to be signed under duress.

Hang on a second ... editing the constitution in a time like this? What do think is going to happen when those corporate leeches in congress get a hold of it?

As one poster said, put the damn dog down already.

The states represent us more than the our out-of-control government, so


The nullification thing isn't an issue if a couple states want to cause a stink, because it would take atleast 1/3rd of states, or more than 2/3rds, together on an issue to do anything - and If that many states strongly disagree with something, maybe there's a good chance that it needs to be re-looked at anyways.
