The risk is to great. Once the politicians start on a convention, they will destroy what is there.
Slow down. There will be an Oath administered before the Convention even begins. WIthin that Oath will be a provision that each delegate will swear to that will ensure the underlying Constitution can not be touched for any reason and everyone is going to know that it's not the intention of the Convention to even consider. The only area that will be open is a chance to create an amendment to the present Constitution that will make it very easy to remove any politician from office if they break any area of our Commonwealth Constitution or our Federal Constitution and any of our Bill of Rights.
They will have to prove that what they are proposing does meet the intention of the Constitution. That will be it. There will be absolutely no tolerance for anyone breaching the Oath administered. Besides, the way the plans are starting to come together, there will not be time for that anyway. The intention is to keep costs down so the meeting schedule will be very tight. Plus, I do not believe for a minute that our local representatives to the convention would want to even try to take that on.
We need your help. Get these posts to your local boards and have them put this on the agenda for the public to vote on. It's much easier to maintain our unalienable rights than to have to try and fight to get them back. Voting them out does nothing to reverse the destruction that will be caused and many of the new codes can be killed here, but once put into play, will be nearly impossible to reverse. You can hope and pray that they get reversed, but many are not likely to.
Now is the time for action. Don't sit and hope someone else does this for us. We have that opportunity now. Take advantage of this.
