My long-time Eagle Forum friend, Orlean Koehle, wrote this enlightening article about the Leftists and Leftist organizations that are pushing for a Convention of the States.
If pro-convention, well-meaning but misguided, conservatives will just open their minds to the true facts about a Convention of the States instead of believing that a Convention is our ‘last best hope’, then we can join hands once again in our fight to preserve our original constitution and steer away from appointed delegates to a convention in which no known rules or agenda are provided in Article V.
The COS call for a Balanced Budget Amendment would give the SCOTUS control over taxing and spending in the event of a congressional inability to reach agreement and would violate the separation of powers policy. A BBA would only give constitutional cover for the big spenders to raise taxes and would do nothing to curb excessive spending.
The following article by my long-time Eagle Forum friend Orlean Koehle, should be an eye-opener to those who would like to think for themselves instead of simply following the big-name conservatives Behind COS Project.
