Con-Con is a No-No

There is a movement in the US now to get a majority of states to call for a constitutional convention. The issue at hand is to pass an balanced budget amendment to the US Constitution which would prevent the federal governmwnt from deficit spending just like the states.

However, calling a con-con can be very dangerous. As many constitutional conservatives have said, there is nothing wrong with the constitution we have.  The only problem is politicians who refuse to follow it.  Also, you don't need to call a con-con to pass an amendment, and you shouldn't need an amendment to get the federal government to balance the budget.  The fear is the people pushing for a con-con may end up making many more changes to our precious constitution then just amending it. 

A local evangelical Christian minister called into a local radio talk show talking about his experience trying to attend several of the Constitutional Convention events. He said he recignized Tea Party leaders now behind the Convention Movement. He talked about offering to say a prayer and that being absolutely refused that he pray. He gave a warning that the people behind this are anti-Christ.

I worked with a national Tea Party organizer. Joker Obama Tee-shirt designs he made and showed me at work ended up on national news the very next week. This gentleman encouraged me to listen to Alex Jones. He worked as a nurse but was fired for displaying a complete lack of empathy for patients. This same nurse also reported me to management for discussing religion in the work place.

I agree with this local minister that the people behind the Constitutional Convention may want to destroy it not save it.
