The next step for the right-wing is a plot to change the U.S. Constitution to make it significantly more conservative by creating a Constitutional Convention among red states.



Article V in the US Constitution allows for two methods of amending the document. They can gather a two-thirds majority of Congress to propose an amendment and have it ratified by three-fourths of the states. The other option is having two-thirds of U.S. states call a constitutional convention and passing and ratifying amendments.

Business Insider reported about the effort encouraged by former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), who was kicked out of office in 2006 by nearly 18 points. But that loss doesn't mean that he can't force his will on the rest of the country.

Speaking at the Dec. 2021 American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) policy summit, Santorum explained that he and his allies want to remake the U.S. into a solidly conservative nation.



"You take this grenade and you pull the pin, you've got a live piece of ammo in your hands," Santorum explained in audio captured by the Center for Media and Democracy. "34 states — if every Republican legislator votes for this, we have a constitutional convention."

Insider conducted interviews with a dozen people involved in the constitutional convention movement, revealing just how well-funded it is, partially through cryptocurrency.

"This isn't an exercise, either. State lawmakers are invited to huddle in Denver starting on Sunday to learn more about the inner workings of a possible constitutional convention at Academy of States 3.0, the third installment of a boot camp preparing state lawmakers 'in anticipation of an imminent Article V Convention,'" said the report.




The conservatives aim to change the constitution so that it would eliminate national education requirements, making it harder for any territory to garner statehood, eliminate many federal environmental standards, and make it difficult or impossible for someone like Anthony Fauci to ever work for decades within the government.

While Santorum is one of the supporters, the others are strong MAGA activists like Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), John Eastman and Fox network hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin.

"It's the most extraordinary thing in my career that I've ever been a part of," Eastman said in a video published by the convention simulation group. "The process actually works."


The constitutional convention activists are meeting on Sunday, ahead of the National Conference of State Legislatures national meeting.

"The group boldly forecasts that a new constitutional convention could take place in 24 months and quotes former President Barack Obama in emphasizing, 'You can't change Washington from the inside,'" said the report.

Even if it doesn't happen in the next two years, it's something that these leaders are pressing forward.

I've had nightmares over this precise possibility. Such a convention would have to be open to delegates from all fifty states and in every state there would likely be competition from all citizens. Thus, people like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, AOC, Maxine Waters, etc. and other extreme Leftists could be delegates.

==================================

Were I to come up with changes to the Constitution, you would rage against them too, I am absolutely certain. Just for fun, I post a few changes that many would agree with today. Since I am not a trained writer of laws, a lot of editing would be needed I am sure.

Reaffirming the First Amendment to ensure that there would be no national religion as it is now, but that there would clearly be no separation of church and state. Further, the concept of free speech will remain lawful, and no adoption of PC or gender change pronouns will be permitted by law in the US.

The second amendment would drop the Militia nonsense as archaic and clearly ensure that private citizens can own and use any small arms they choose for purposes of defense, hunting, or sport, most definitely including the AR-15 type and other semi-automatic weapons, and that ammunition for these weapons shall be readily available.
Plus, manufacturers and retailers shall not be sued for producing and distributing the weapons, except in the case of black-market activities and gunrunning. Open and concealed carry of weapons shall be permitted in all spaces, with the usual exceptions (to be enumerated).

For purposes of law, marriage would be considered valid only between a man and a woman, and that no other genders would be legally valid in the US. Only biological genders at birth would be valid in the nation.

Environmental cleanup regulations would be permitted in the US, but not climate change efforts, unless three-fourths of the states ratify such actions in their legislatures and signed by their governors, after a commission of scientists from all sides, including an equal number of deniers of the issue, have recommended approaches to the mitigation of the problem.

Hate crime laws shall be abolished.

Abortion shall be abolished in the US.

To vote in all elections only US citizens can vote, and only if they present valid, current identification with a picture that has been obtained from US government sources. No illegal, non-citizen person shall be able to obtain such identification, or driver's licenses.
