The Great Debate!

Posted in politics with tags , , on February 14, 2011 by spikestl

Come hear the Great Debate!!!

Decide for yourself:
Will an Article V Convention save our Constitution…..
….. or destroy it???

The currently proposed Repeal Amendment would give state legislatures veto power over any federal law or regulation they didn’t like — whether it passes constitutional muster or not:

“Any provision of law or regulation of the United States may be repealed by the several states, and such repeal shall be effective when the legislatures of two-thirds of the several states approve resolutions for this purpose that particularly describe the same provision or provisions of law or regulation to be repealed.”

Such an amendment would call for an Article V Convention…..

The Article V/ Repeal Amendment Debate

Posted in Cool Beans with tags , , on January 23, 2011 by spikestl

Please join us for a debate on the merits and dangers of an Article V Constitutional convention to amend the US Constitution.
Many states including Missouri are or have introduced legislation requesting an article V convention to consider the Repeal Amendment.
This is a very important debate.
We the people need to be informed and understand the pros and cons of such an action.
If this happens it will be the first convention convened since since the passage of the US Constitution.

Jan. 31st @ 7:00-8:30 pm
