Moral relativism. That's what we've been dealing witth for the last 100 years. A slow, but increasingly faster ride away from stong, religious based morals to "whatever feels good, baby" . That's how I see it.

As I said before, an A5CoS does not permit the rewriting of the Constitution. It only allows amendments to be proposed.

An A5CoS can only propose amendments to the Constitution. There is NO provision for a rewrite of the Constitution. Go ahead and read the Article yourself. Your objection is used by those who do not want the people to have a say in our federal government, whether you know it or not.

Foreign aid has best been described as"Poor people in rich contries giving money to rich people in poor countries". Maybe we should end most foreign aid.

An Article Five Convention of States ( for the purpose of proposing amendments)(and that's the ONLY purpose of an A5CoS) would do the same thing withoutt congress. It can be done, and it should be done. All we have to do is convince our state legislattures that "We, the People" want this.

The Senate was set upo so that the STATES would have representation at the federal level. With the passage of the 17th amendment, the states lost their power over the senators. And we now have the system we were never supposed to have.

Good Women Have Abortions

SOMETIMES good women have abortions. But I will tell you this- They don' brag about it. In fact, it weighs heavily on their souls. The know what they did and are not proud. At the time, they were being pragmatic. It doesn't help them cope, but cope they must with what was probably the most difficultt decision that have ever made in their lives.
The MINDSET. I have not seen the ad, but it is the truth. Why do we ALWAYS look tto washington to do something? The best thing they could do is nothing, but then, they wouldn't be needed. "We, the People" MUST step up and do our duty. Only WE can return us to the Constitution.
Its obvious to me that she knows the statement is false. But she also knows her audience has the economic IQ of a gnat, so they eat it up. The problem is an uninformed electorate, not the politicians, who are only doing what any good politician does- say ANYTHING to get elected.
