TO RESTORE BALANCE OF POWER

(Mar. 6, 2015) — I have launched the first barrage in the final battle of my crusade to recover the federal government from its overreaching of the Constitutional limitations put upon it. As I have written extensively elsewhere, the Executive Branch is unaccountable to the People, the Legislative Branch belongs to the monied interests and the Judiciary has decided that it can act as a super legislature, tenured for life and enjoying absolute immunity for its misdeeds.
Thus, I believe what is left is the saving grace of the Article V absolute right for the States to call a Convention to Propose Amendments to re-align the balance of power between the federal government, the states and the People. As I detail in my letter to the Honorable Mitch McConnell and the Honorable John A. Boehner, that right has now been exercised by thirty-five (35) states, hence it is time for Congress to act and call such a convention. If they don’t, then the Supreme Court will have the matter and if that body declares that this right too has been lost, then, I believe — and hope — that all Hell will break loose.
