FYI – Pop Up Meeting

Constitutional Convention

from the

a4a Leadership Team

Wednesday, May 31, 10:00 A.M., BMO/Harris Bank

alliance4action will be offering the occasional  “Pop-Up” meeting, usually for about one hour, on an issue of interest to watch for and keep on the radar for possible future action.  We firmly believe that an educated constituency is vital for a democracy.

An ARTICLE V Constitutional Convention has been proposed by 29 of the 34 states required, and will be further promoted/discussed this summer in Texas.
Except for 1787, when luminaries such as Adams, Hamilton, Madison, Jefferson, et. al. decided to throw out the Articles of Confederation and created our U.S. Constitution, there have been no Constitutional Conventions. Do we have such great minds as these that we trust today to tinker with our Constitution, with the power to throw it out, and re-write the whole document?
The Koch Brothers are promoting this, while the John Birch Society opposes the idea of a Constitutional Convention. Come and find out more.
