Couldn't have said it better myself, Mike,

But I have been saying all of this for a long time. In fact, each one of those statements is a subject of one or more of My Articles.

"The public is intentionally educated to be ignorant and submissive, and the representatives either are ignorant, controlled, or influenced by outside interests, whether they know it or not."

Exactly right Mike. This is called "Brainwashing".

"Both the people and the states are totally dependent-on and addicted-to the corporate federal government."

Exactly, and they call it an "Entitlement".

"...delete everything from the 11th Amendment forward, take back our courts, close all federal agencies, return to sound money."

I couldn't agree more; and the reason is, that this is exactly where everything started to unravel. In fact, I'm not sure if you're aware, but I have introduced the idea that not only do we need an Article V Convention, but have proposed 44 New Amendments to be considered for addition to our existing "Law of the Land".

"...we need to plan for the disruptions that we expect to develop."

And those disruptions will come from what Van Jones called the "Bottom-Up, Top-Down, Inside-Out" solution. 

"We must be prepared for an attack from the very politicians and bankers that we intend to take the public's "perceived" authority away from."

Unlike what you tend to be insinuating, the trouble is not going to come directly from the Top, (the politicians,etc.), they will get the Bottom to do their dirty work for them. Then the Top will come Down with the new "laws" that they claim is their "Only Choice" solution to the disorder coming from the Bottom-Up; in an artificially created "Emergency, Martial Law" Declaration, complete with Re-Education Centers and FEMA Camps.

"History does and will repeat itself."

And yes we have seen this all before. You think the "Authority created by the NDAA won't be for those "Rednecks, clinging to their guns and Religion" and all those "TEA-Baggers"? Think twice. This is exactly why they passed that "Law".

"mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed."

Declaration of Independence

Morton is this the picture that is missing?

Summation of ratification data for each ratified amendment[edit]

It is my position that the A.V Convention is a mistake, as the founders desired we use the Tenth Amendment, and Nullification. Both Protect the Constitution as well as proscribe response to unConstitutional acts. 

Here is my powerpoint on the issue.

See:  Article V Convention and why not:  www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/41085340

Thank you for the opportunity to comment, and your site is beyond measure, concerning useful and insightful information.

LT. Robert K. Powell GDO ( ret. ) Oregon City, Oregon

On the Tenth Amendment or Nullification, I don't agree that this is viable in today's "Ignorance and Apathy" world. But, on the BBA's proposed, I totally agree. You are correct. That will not help. If however there is some amendment or two that will help, perhaps I have already considered it and pontificated as much. See if you agree. I will email you the file. Watch for it in your email.

Power is never surrendered it must be "TAKEN AWAY" and that is what Article V is all about. States can pass amendments that go so far as to disband Congress, the Courts and the Executive if 38+ State legislatures so ratify. 

So, there is no fear about the Necessary and proper clause because it applies to the Article I section 8 enumerated powers not to the entire body of law as McCulloch V Maryland found in Justice Marshall second usurping of powers not give. I am working on a piece about when we lost the concept of the Constitution as a limit on the Federal government.

As of today Obama is correct we have no functioning limits on Government because they just ignore the Constitution. So, it is left to the States to repair the breach in the wall of protection.

So, Article V and a Constitutional Convention is to regain the powers given to the States by the Founding Fathers?  If so, is there a chance that all necessary states will join the movement of restoration?

Article V Con Con is a mistake. If you think otherwise please read more and comprehend the draw backs. There is only advantage to the de facto.

Publius is wrong and so is Eagle Forum and JBS for they ignore that we currently have no Constitutional limits on Government. There has been continuous usurpation since 1800 and the Justice Marshall cases.

The 14th amendment rendered the 9th and 10th amendment toothless with "NO STATE SHALL" limits and by putting the Federal Government in a superior position in all cases of laws.

Even Publius finally admitted in September of 2013 that some offending amendments need to be repealed - humm how do we accomplish that without using Article V? 

All three groups fear the AV process and say we can fix the existing Constitution? How do they propose to accomplish that? 

The slide show information is a false narrative and has been debunked by many.
