U.S. Constitution under ATTACK
Will your Constitutional Rights survive?
This article was submitted to MDG by Lark Chadwick. (Great job Lark)
The U.S. Constitution has enabled greater freedom and prosperity for a greater number of people than any system ever devised by man.
But today our Constitution is under attack from all sides. A nationwide coalition of factions and personalities on both the left and right – with reach into Montana – threatens to rewrite our Constitution by means of an Article V convention. They just need state legislatures to apply to the U.S. Congress to call a Convention. Some are calling also for a Convention of States to propose amendments to the Constitution.
Beyond the first ten amendments – Bill of Rights [all reinforcing unalienable rights] -, without which our Constitution would never have been ratified, there are an additional 17, to total 27 Amendments to the Constitution for the United States. Some argue that certain of those amendments have harmed rather than reinforced our liberty and freedoms. The 16th [federal income tax – which happens to be plank #2 of the Communist Manifesto] and 17th Amendments [direct popular election of Senators that extinguished States Legislature’s authority] and the 18th [Prohibition – a federal power grab if ever there was one] later repealed by the 21st, are first to come to mind. This leaves 13 other Amendments to more closely evaluate with respect to their expansion [or not] of liberty. That discussion could be many pages longer than this short letter.
You can be a hero and help preserve our Constitution by opposing the Article V convention process and/or a Convention of States to propose amendments as a means to amend the Constitution. Permanent damage could be done if we open it up for revision in today’s political environment with groups and interests at all extremes of the political spectrum seeking to end American sovereignty in favor of a global governance that would make unwilling, forced compliance, world ‘citizens’ of us all. Just who would be the masters in that scenario? Certainly NOT us, “We The People”.
The Constitution is the Solution.

Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
