The Liberty Amendments: the discussion continues
K-Bob over at the Right Scoop is running a continuing series to discuss how practically to bring about a return to constitutionalism — based around the document’s original intent — using the amendment 2 process Mark Levin highlights in his book as a way to circumvent the entrenched DC elite.
I discussed what I thought was a very important, if ancillary and theoretical (at this point), end-game question, because I think for all the practicality and potentiality in Levin’s idea, what it doesn’t address (and it need not, frankly, because it is beyond the scope of his book) is the ultimate contingency: what if the gambit is tried, support is strong, but ultimately, we just don’t have the numbers?
In K-Bob’s piece, he looks today at the present danger and the consequences of inaction.
Go read it and then let’s see if we can’t discuss it here.
Also, read Rob Natelson on the myth of the runaway amendments convention — which at this very moment is the establishment GOP’s supposed “thoughtful” response to the amendment 2 idea, and is pushed by them as yet another bit of protection for the status quo camouflaged as alarmism and, to some, simply surrender.
It’s more than that, though. They like the power they have and we are in a single party ruling class system. I’ve been noting this for some time now, and with every action the GOP takes contra to the wishes of its base, it becomes increasingly apparent that the GOP proper is more closely aligned with statist Democrats than it is with its own supposed constituencies.
The government is at war with those of us who refuse to accept the smooth transition from citizen with an ownership interest in government to a subject of a government who has assumed ownership over us.
