Understanding the Constitution

“Monumental” speech against an Article V convention

Here is the Exhibit List (with Links) to the Documents referenced in the speech [link].

Please note that I prove what I say.

The convention lobby is not telling the Truth. Click on the link to the Exhibit List, and read the flyers listed at the top. Those flyers address specific falsehoods the convention lobby is telling. The convention lobby has been getting away with the lies because people are generally gullible and believe whatever they are told, instead of using their own heads and looking at the original source documents.

The convention lobby never proves a thing they say. They can’t prove it because what they say is false – they make it up!      But it sounds so good … and thus gullible and unthinking people lap it up.  The convention lobby tells them that our  Constitution is the cause of all our problems, and thus allows Americans to indulge in one of their favorite sins:  blame-shifting The Truth is that our political problems are caused by our own failures to learn and enforce and obey the glorious Constitution we already have.  And State and local governments take every federal dollar they can get – never mind that the federal programs for which the federal money is sent into the States are unconstitutional.  The State and local governments literally sold our retained powers to the federal government.

We can’t solve our political problems until we are willing to be honest about the causes of those problems.

  1. Thank you for the great presentation. Too bad they cut you off at 30 minutes. I was surprised that there were only a few questions asked. I would have had many. I learned a lot and thanks again for a superb performance.

    As I was listening, especially the part about the educational system in America, I remembered a portion of Ediberto Romàn’s Treatise that I included in a book I am writing. Here is a snippet:

    Ediberto Román in his treatise titled “THE ALIEN-CITIZEN PARADOX AND OTHER CONSEQUENCES OF U.S. COLONIALISM” published in the Florida State University Law Review in 1998 mentions Antonio Gramsci’s theory of hegemony thusly:

    According to Antonio Gramsci’s theory of hegemony, subordinated groups often unwittingly adopt the dominant culture’s perception
    of reality. In other words, the proletariat, or subordinate group, “wear their chains willingly. Condemned to perceive reality through
    the conceptual spectacles of the ruling class, they are unable to recognize the nature or extent of their own servitude.”

    As you stated several times the Federal Government gives the states money and then tells them what they can and cannot teach in the public schools. What hasn’t been taught for many years is the United States Constitution. In Oregon, statute law requires 5 years of Constitutional study from 8th grade through 12th grade and in all 4 years of college, including Willamette Law School and Lewis and Clark Law School. Any graduate of Willamette or Lewis and Clark should be able to give a verbal dissertation on the Constitution as eloquently as you. A high school graduate should know enough about the Constitution to be proud to be an American and vote responsibly. But alas, far too many “were their chains willingly”.
    Respectfully,
    Doug

  5. You proved your case in SC against the non existent evidence of the opposition. It apoears thry do what everyone that has no real teuth or facts to back up their case do….they try to denegrate their opposition and make false accusations with no facts to back it up. Now lets see if the SC legislature has the brains and the spine to do the right thing.
