I know that a number of my fellow conservative and/or libertarian bloggers believe that calling a new constitutional convention would be a good idea. I am not so sure after reading an article by David Limbaugh where he makes a pretty persuasive case against holding a new constitutional convention. In May 14, 1787 both federalists and antifederalists got together to form a new government. Well, actually some only wanted to revise the Articles of Confederation. Could you honestly imagine liberals and conservatives - Democrats and Republicans and Libertarians - getting together at a new constitutional convention and agreeing upon what should be in the new constitution? Or how our constitution should be revised? I believe that the Constitution that our Founders came up with is a once in a lifetime, special document. I don't believe that we could do better job of preventing men or women from usurping their power upon us or from perverting the constitution for political gain by creating a new constitution.
John Adams stated that “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
We simply must take our country back from an immoral and irreligious people who are intent on transforming the United States of America into the socialist states of America. We need to kick the bums out.
