    I agree. The only change to the Constitution I would support is a repeal of the 16th and 17th Amendments. I would not support a convention to do so. The Proponents say that they have to adhere to the origional intent of the convention, but the problem most don’t understand is that once the convention starts, they could “vote” to change the rules of the convention. Once that happens, all bets are off. The other thing pointed out is that the states won’t support bad amendments. Name me 12 states that you trust to hold a conservative line. Utah? They support Common Core and Agenda 21 (wether they know it or not). Idaho? Also supports Common Core and has sold part of the state to China. Wyoming? Statistically in the bottom of religious states in the union. Even Texas is under attack. If you can’t find 12 solid conservative states to protect us, I can’t support the convention.

    As to term limits. There is nothing in the Constitution today that forces you to vote for the same people. If you’re not part of the candidate selection process (walking, donations, etc.) starting with or before the caucus and primaries, and / or you are not running yourself, you are part of the problem.

    Balanced budget Amendment? Every propsoal I’ve read says they can suspend it during time of war. When in our recent history have we not been in a time of war?

    Besides, if they don’t respect the Constitution as is now, why would they respect a bunch of Amendments?

    The key is Education!

    I see the city in Angola and just can’t help but think ICLEI and Agenda 21 :-(

    Assuming you are correct, I am sick of “strategic” moves by the GOP, the party is terrible at chess. What it usually means is “compromise” and that of course translates into the left getting 70+ % of what they want with a promise to get the remaining 30% later.

    It’s time for the Grand Old Party to start standing their ground and standing on principle!

    Classically Liberal, Founding Fathers, Conservative, Constitutional Principles. In other words, libertarian freedom deeply rooted in a nation that reads and adheres the the standards set forth in the Bible.

    “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

    Good for you, though don’t discount us middle aged and older veterans. Someone is going to have to lead you younger grunts in the defense of liberty.

    But the more accurate reason why the communist will loose, taking a quote from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Colored Dream Coat, “Don’t give up Joseph. Fight ’til you drop. We’ve read the book and you come out on top.”

    Colorado’s problems, as I see them (as a tea party member living here) are:
    1. “The Blue Print”: Colorado was selected to flop. It was planned and carried out very well. The Dems got the state supreme court which now rules in their favor and is responsible for gerrymandering our districts making it harder to win elections.
    2. ICLE and Agenda 21, several of our college towns are now card carrying members.
    3. Socially liberal Libertarianism. In the recent Gallop pole, Colorado barely missed the bottom 10 of least religious states. It’s a lot easier to win the social battles as a Dem if the “Republicans” agree with you. I’ve heard local “conservative” radio host supporting civil unions, legalizing marijuana, and even a “pro choice” stance. I agree with David Barton when he said, if you can compromise on life, you can compromise on anything.

    I’m also a firm believer in the words of John Adam’s
    “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams, Address to the Military, October 11, 1798

    What makes a conservative conservative and is a red state red if it supports social liberalism? See Colorado for the answer.

    #26 and #27 from Cleon Skowsen’s List of Communist Goals Contained in “The Naked Communist” (Written in 1958)

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    Check and Check.

    “…and I think the ship has sailed and I think the church needs to just — this is the world we’re living in and we need to affirm people wherever they are.”

    What does this say about where we are?

    How about we kick CA out of the US and then deport all the transplants that can’t pass a US Citizenship test based on the Constitution, Free Markets, and Liberty?

    For that matter we could do the same to New England and much of the East coast. I would hate to loose the original 13, but it’s obvious they have “progressed” far beyond the rest of us.

    I think it’s sad that white America now believes 3 kids is a large family. Children are a blessing from God. Each one is a unique joy. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to judge anyone, each family is between God and the parents, I just think it’s sad that we have let ourselves get to a state of mind where we believe 3 kids is too many.

    When did conservative equal only “fiscal” conservative? It seems, anymore, when we speak of “conservatives” we are only talking about fiscally, so we can include libertarians under the same tent. But more & more I’m convinced that seeking only fiscal conservationism will not save our country. I am getting tired of the argument that Republicans can not address social issues or we will loose. Guess what, we are loosing. Maybe it’s time to take a moral stand. If we fail, at least we fail defending what we believe instead of compromising.

    Consider the words of Isiah, a warning today just as much as to the northern (lost) tribes of Israel:

    Isaiah 1:10
    10: Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

    Isaiah 1:9
    9: The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

    Isaiah 13:19
    19: And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

    If the founding fathers were libertarian, it was confined by a strong belief in the principles of Natures God.

    “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.”

    Has anyone else noticed that our school choir or band performances these days have at least one Hanukkah song, at least one Kwanzaa (or African / Swahili sounding song) and one “Winter Festival” type song (think Jingle Bells, or anything to do with snow), after all we don’t want to offend anyone. Which is why they also rarely get to perform actual Christmas songs that contain religious symbols or mention Christ.

    Or may be I just see conspiracies everywhere these days ;-)

    I agree, the message being presented isn’t about her sexuality, it’s about a popular talk show host / comedian selling product (nothing news worthy here, they all do it). Just like Macy’s message wasn’t about Donald Trumps Politics. I do however have a problem when JCP crosses that line and makes sexuality the message as has been done this last summer with two “Dad’s” playing with their son in some of their news paper adds. Top that off with their implications behind the add having two tweens dressing, that’s why I choose not to shop at JCP.

    “…if the wider party accepts the fundamental shift on this issue – and on social issues generally – that has taken place not only among young voters, but nationwide.”
    “young voters cast their votes on social issues first and foremost.”

    We have a choice. To get the “youth” vote, we will have to abandon our Social Conservative Principles. Regardless of economic values, this article claims the “young voters cast their votes on social issues first and foremost.” It seems pretty simple, to win their vote we must become the party of Social Liberals, only then will our message of Fiscal Conservatism be heard.

    If you ever read Isaiah you know what destroyed the kingdom of Israel. So the choice is clear, win their vote and loose the soul of our nation, or lose their vote and probably lose the election thus losing our nation. The only real hope is to bring our country back to one nation under God.

    We always paraphrase Joshua 24:15, but I would like to quote it in its entirety:
    “15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

    Do you recall what the land was like “on the other side of the flood”? Is that what we want for our country? I stand with Joshua, “but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

    “help that was given to people to make their homes more energy efficient” – OK, how about “green welfare”?
    “grants to public entities constructing high speed rail lines” – That’s not Pork?
    “and tax credits to manufacturers to install equipment fostering cleaner energy” – Can you say ICLEI? If special interest isn’t pork, then what is?

    If AP applied anymore spin to their “FACT”s I’d be dizzy…
