Open Letter to State Legislators Everywhere: The Other Side of the Article V Convention Issue

By Publius Huldah
If there is an Article V convention, we will lose the Constitution we have, and another Constitution will
be imposed.
You are not getting both sides of this issue. Throughout the Country, those of us who are warning of the
dangers of an Article V convention are marginalized, ridiculed, smeared, shut out of meetings, and
barred from speaking in public forums. THIS short essay from the Principled Policy Blog describes
what we face every day.
THIS article is an account by Donny Harwood, a Citizen of Tennessee, describing how he was shut out
of the public meeting which the Convention of States people held on October 19, 2015 at the
Millennium Maxwell House Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. According to The Leaf-Chronicle, a
number of Tennessee Legislators were at the meeting. A prominent Tennessee radio talk show host was
also present.
And everyone at the meeting was prevented from hearing the other side of this issue.
The reason convention proponents forbid dissenting voices is that we prove, by means of Facts and
original source documents, that the claims and promises of the convention proponents are false. HERE
are some of the original source documents Legislators would hear about if they were presented with the
other side of this issue.
We are in the final stage of a takeover. Leftists of every variety want a new Constitution to legalize our
transformation from the constitutional Republic created by our existing Constitution to a dictatorship.
To get a new Constitution, they need a convention. So they are telling conservatives that our
Constitution is causing our problems and we need to amend the Constitution. And they say we can only
make the amendments they say we need at a convention.
Article V of our Constitution provides two methods of amending our Constitution. Congress:
1. Proposes amendments, or
2. Calls a convention to propose amendments if 34 States apply for it.
The first method was used for our existing 27 amendments: Congress proposed them and sent them to
the States for ratification or rejection.

Under the second method, Congress calls a convention. We have never had a convention under Article
V. Such conventions are extremely dangerous. THIS is one of many articles which illustrate the
danger, sets forth warnings from two of our Framers and two former US Supreme Court Justices, and
explains why Delegates to a convention can NOT be controlled by State laws.

National conventions are dangerous because the Delegates have the plenipotentiary
power to impose a new Constitution with a new mode of ratification. The video by Chuck
Michaelis at the bottom of THIS page explains these plenipotentiary powers. Such Delegates are the
Sovereign Representatives of The People and have the power to impose a new Constitution. This has
already happened in our history:

At the Federal Convention of 1787, this plenipotentiary power was exercised to replace our first
Constitution, the Articles of Confederation, with the Constitution we now have. On February
21, 1787, The Continental Congress called a convention for the sole and express purpose of
revising the Articles of Confederation. But instead of proposing amendments to our first
Constitution, the Delegates wrote a new Constitution - the one we now have.

Furthermore, the new Constitution had a new and easier mode of ratification: Article XIII of
The Articles of Confederation (p 8-9) provided that Amendments to the Articles had to be
approved by the Continental Congress and all of the then 13 States. But the new Constitution,
drafted at the "amendments" convention of 1787, provided at Art. VII thereof that it would be
ratified upon approval by only nine of the then existing 13 States.

So! Not only do Delegates to a national convention have this plenipotentiary power to impose a new
Constitution; the precedent to do so has already been established.
The Left has been pushing for a convention for 50 years - ever since the Ford and Rockefeller
Foundations produced the Constitution for the Newstates of America. They need a convention to get it
Several other Constitutions are already prepared and waiting for a convention.
If there is a convention, the only issues will be (1) whose Constitution will be imposed by the
Delegates; and (2) what new mode of ratification will be set forth in the new Constitution.

The Constitution for the Newstates of America imposes a totalitarian dictatorship. Article
XII, 1 thereof provides for ratification by a Referendum called by the President. The
States are dissolved and replaced by regional governments answerable to the new national

The Revolutionary Communist Party USA has a Constitution for The New Socialist
Republic in North America.

George Soros, Marxist law professors all over the Country, Cass Sunstein and Eric Holder want a
Marxist Constitution in place by the year 2020.

The Convention of States project wants a re-written Constitution which legalizes powers
the federal government has already usurped, and delegates new powers to the federal
government such as total power over children. Yet they are telling conservatives that they want
a convention so they can get amendments to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal

Under the planned North American Union, Canada, the United States, and Mexico will
surrender their sovereignty to a Parliament set over the three countries. The United States
will need a new Constitution to transform us from a sovereign nation to a member state of the
North American Union. This is what the Establishment wants. And it is being imposed on us by
stealth. Read the Task Force Report of the Council on Foreign Relations HERE. And to see how
the European Union is working out for the formerly sovereign nations of Europe, watch this 7.5
minute video by Pat Condell.

In the past, conservatives defeated the periodic pushes for a convention. So the Left changed tactics:
Now, they are marketing it to appeal to conservatives: they are telling conservatives that a convention is
the only way to rein in the federal government. These leftists, some wearing conservatives clothing, are
using the classic techniques of the Left: They are not telling the truth; they are smearing their opponents;
and they have divided conservatives. Conservatives who fell for the marketing have been induced to
attack and exclude conservatives who are warning of the dangers of a convention. And they wont let us
address their groups.
Our existing Constitution really was a 5,000 year miracle. We delegated only a handful of enumerated
powers to the federal government you can see what we delegated HERE. Our Constitution doesnt
need fixing we need to restore the Constitution we already have. We begin the Restoration by
reading and learning our Constitution and Declaration of Independence. And enforcing it! See, in this
regard, the Tenth Amendment Centers 2015 State of the Nullification Movement Report.
For the Love of God and Country, heed this warning.

Very truly yours,
