So here we are again, the Republican base—made up of Tea Party members, Independents and Democrats that are fed up with Obama, Conservatives, and Republicans that are corporatists. Once again we have been duped. This time it was at lightning speed. It happened less than 6 weeks from the election.
We Conservatives find ourselves on the dark side of the moon. Men and women without a party. We all do what we can as patriots: calling our reps, emails, donations to the Tea Party, faxes, and blog posts. It`s all for not. No one is listening. These newly re-elected Republicans have four more years to feed at the “K” street pig trough. Obama laughed his behind off as he headed to yet another vacation. The rest of us linger—waiting to see the other shoe drop. Every time we think we may have gained some ground, someone in one or both political parties pulls the rug out from under our feet. America takes another gut punch.
I was scrolling over Facebook looking at the comments, anti-Obama posters, the disgruntled Republicans and Conservatives and I realized more than ever that we must have an Article V convention to stop these political swine that feed on us, our children, and grandchildren. None of us—to include the WWII generation has ever seen anything like what we are seeing today in America.
The true power base
My dear friends, all is not lost. There are 30 plus states that have passed resolutions to hold an Article V Convention of the States. There have been several productive meetings since December of last year where representatives from all 50 states have shown up and discussed this option. The state legislatures are where our true power lies. Yes, this is a hard undertaking, it requires a lot of foot work on the grass roots level; however, we have the numbers in place in terms of Republican controlled state legislatures.
This is our only answer. Another election cycle won`t do it. Another RINO candidate coroneted by the establishment will cost us yet another Presidential Election. Gripping and bitching on social media sites feels good but gains nothing. We must convince other Americas to get educated about the Article V amendment process and we must get to know our state representatives and encourage them to act on this movement; a movement that is truly gaining momentum under the radar.
