Did Michigan just trigger 'constitutional convention'? Bid gains steam

Michigan is the 34th state to call a Constitutional Convention.

Just don't let the Leftists hijack it.

Even if the requisite number of states have applied, questions remain about how such a convention would work -- and whether, as Michigan wants, such a convention could be limited to only discussing a balanced-budget amendment.

It still may be a long shot, but some analysts are warning about the unintended consequences of such a move.

In Louisiana, Budget Project Policy Analyst Steve Spire argued against the state's resolution, saying the convention could permanently damage the nation’s political system.

Permanently damage the nation's political system?  And that's a bad thing?

Apparently, according to the article, several of the 34 states have rescinded their call.  We'll see how this plays out.

And a balance budget amendment? I'm sorry, but the Federal Government already IGNORES THE CONSTITUTION.  Do you think adding another amendment is going to magically start them following it?  I don't think so.

The answer is somewhere else.  Something that not only takes power away from The Fed, but also gives it to states or individuals.
