VALLEY FORGE PATRIOTS JUNE MEETING - CANCELLED

  • Jun 12, 2014 · 7:00 PM

In May we discussed a State Constitutional Convention, what is needed to make that happen and what it could do to return our country to the constitution.

This month we will be talking about other alternatives to the ConCon. Our friend Phil Duffy says his discussion will be "an exploration of the two ways of proposing amendments to the Constitution ... as specified in the Constitution's Article V. The presentation will take the audience through a different view of the Constitution and provide insights into the conditions under which Robert Frost's road "less traveled" gets the traveler to his/her destination safer and more quickly".  Phil believes in the importance of the grassroots movement, the fact that 21% of the electorate are steering our "ship of state" and how that happens. What about the young voters? Can they be brought into a liberty movement? How adhering to Principle(s) can lead us in the right direction.

William Taylor Reil will follow up with a discussion on why NOT to have a ConCon and why we should consider the nullification process. You can also go to www.countysherrifbrigadesofpennsylvania.com for more information.

Please come and help us learn "what happened to America and how can we fix it"?

Cash bar available.  There is no charge but donations are important to VFP.

Thank you.

    FOLKS, PLEASE STAY TUNED. WE LOST THE KOP FIREHOUSE DUE TO A GLITCH. WE WILL TRY THE P'VILLE SR. CENTER TO SEE IF THEY ARE AVAILABLE. DON'T GIVE UP ON THIS MEETING!

      Hi Betty, I'm sorry to hear that there was a scheduling conflict for the meeting this Thursday at the firehouse. If you are in need of a meeting place, I know several places in the King of Prussia area whom are more than willing to accommodate us, it would just depend if they would have availability that night. Please get back to me and let me know what you think.

    If you support upholding the ‪‎2nd Amendment‬ and do NOT want the government taking away your right to keep and bear arms, than do NOT support an Article V Convention of the States.

    This isn't just a "Mark Levin" idea. The left and the right are both working together to rewrite the Constitution. Here is just another example of why we should NOT have a Convention. Justice of the Supreme Court John Paul Stevens is the author of a book called "Six Amendments; how and why we should change the Constitution." 

    In his book he talks about changing the First Amendment, and changing the 2nd Amendment so that a good percentage of the people could not own a firearm. Stevens would change the 2nd Amendment to say "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the Militia shall not be infringed." We are playing with fire here. An Article V Convention is actually a very collectivist idea.

    Steve, from what I heard is that this is a Convention of STATES. NOT a Constitutional Convention. States decide their delegates, they can have as many as they want. But, each state only gets one vote. They discuss what amendments they want and then go home and decide what each state wants to do. Then they vote. There must be 3/4 of the states that agree before the amendment is ratified. Sounds safe to me.

      Janet, I know. Thank you. An Article V Convention is States getting together to have a convention about the Constitution. States with the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and John McCain will also have a say in this. Soros and other left-wing NWO socialist groups have already hijacked this idea of a convention. This will not just be a conservative convention. For example, look what happened in the 2012 Republican convention. Conservative voices got shut down by progressive Republicans. Now, with an Article V Convention, Democrats and Socialists will have a say too. Proponents of an article 5 convention claim that this convention will reflect the will and the desires of the people. Just look at how the will and the desires of the people turned out in the past two presidential elections. What we'll end up with will be called "the great compromise."

    Here is a list of hundreds of progressive and socialist organizations that want to have an Article V convention. Some are even funded by George Soros. They want to transform our constitutional republic into a democracy that promotes social justice and collectivist ideas.

    I listened to a conference on this subject on Wallbuilders (David Barton's site). After listening to it I have changed my mind on this and now believe it would be a good thing.

      After listening to Bill, I hope you will change your mind again. I'm sure he will give an excellent presentation. I look forward to seeing you there!

    Thank you for doing this Bill. We need to fight this and not let our Constitution be changed. An Article V Convention is not the proper solution right now because of our current political climate. Nullification is the rightful remedy, as Thomas Jefferson once said.
