The only hope left for our Republic is a Constitutional convention called by the states where the abuses of our Liberty heaped upon us for the last 80 years can be addressed. Desperately needed are Amendments that prohibit Congress exempting themselves or the Executive and Judicial branches from any laws they pass and absolute term limits for members of Congress and all federal judges including the Supreme Court. The powers of federal executive agencies also needed to be limited as should lawmaking by unelected federal judges. I fear that our nation is on the brink of a more violent revolution more like that in France in 1789 unless we take back our Constitution
I’ve thought about what you suggest and wonder:
If they don’t follow the current Constitution, who is going to make them follow a new, revised, stricter constitution?
A Free Republic is meant only for a deeply moral and religious people. There would be no problem if we had the same level of morality and fear of God that we had at our nation’s founding.
Rather than undertaking a risky Constitution Convention, which doesn’t appear to be able to be enforced any better than the current one, I think we as a nation have to realize that we are no longer a republic, and haven’t been for many decades. Every day I read articles reporting government’s overreach, violating citizens’ rights and liberty.
What we appear to have now is a “soft” tyranny. We are “allowed” to speak our minds and dissent only to a certain degree, beyond which the Tyrant “deals” with in a wholly illegal manner.
As far as I can tell, there really seems to be just one solution left, and most of us are too old and ill to embrace it, while the much of the remainder is ignorant and in many cases, willing so.
I believe that is why so many see in Mr. Trump, that small sliver of hope that one man (selected and guided by the Almighty) just might be able to bring about restoration, by whatever means he needs.
