Your home for discussing politics, the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and the principles of liberty.
These proposed changes and thinking the Constitution is outmoded, is pure crap. But what it truly is, is a build up of the near demise of our Founding documents, to the point that it will hang by a thread and have to be saved by patriots and Elders of Israel as prophesied.lundbaek wrote: ↑Tue Mar 14, 2017 11:29 amThe Founding Fathers had some things going for them that I certainly don't expect to see in either the people who will choose the delegates or in the delegates who will likely be chosen to participate in a new constitutional convention. According to both the Lord (D&C 101:80) and statements of some of the men who participated in what turned into the Constitutional Convention, including Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Franklin, they felt they were inspired by the Lord, or by Providence, as they expressed it. And for what it's worth, President Wilford Woodruff, speaking in general conference in 1898, stated that "...those men who laid the foundation of this American government and signed the Declaration of Independence were the best spirits the God of heaven could find on the face of the earth." I doubt delegates appointed to a Con-Con now would be of the same caliber, nor of the same political persuasions. I believe there are people out there who would try to restore the US Constitution to its original meaning, but the odds of them being chosen are about nill.
I think you will agree, Lundbaek, it is called apathy.lundbaek wrote: ↑Mon Mar 27, 2017 3:33 pmThe Arizona Senate passed HCR 2013 (BBA) and HB 2226 (Compact for America – BBA), along with their delegate instructing bills. The Arizona "House" previously passed HCR 2010 (Convention of States – Basically an Open Convention). All Republicans voted for them. Too bad! Very frustrating! Now on to rescinding them next year.
If a few more states sign on, this could lead to further shredding of the U.S. Constitution; cutting more of the threads by which the Constitution is hanging. It is not surprising to me that most Americans do not realize the danger a new Con-Con poses to their freedoms, including to their personal finances. But It is especially disappointing to me that so few LDS people, who have a doctrinal imperative to preserve freedom, do not recognize the danger.
