    The project was commissioned by the Ford & Rockefeller Foundations at a $25 million cost.

    Their results were the titled:

    Constitution for the Newstates of America

    When you call for a new Constitutional Convention, you really don't know how bad it can become and what little control you or I would actually have.

    It is truly too dangerous to even contemplate.

    Read the highlights of the book and what these "philanthropic" foundations came up with, true tyranny.

      is an ALEC wet dream. Do you really want to be taxed directly by Exxon or AIG or Goldman? Personally, I kind of prefer having my tax dollars pause briefly in the treasury before being sent along to these thieves. At least it gives me a semblance of hope that the Congress may wake up and start to use the money for a public good.

      If I was any more excited, I would almost be apathetic.

      •  ALEC is already being forcefully dismantled, and (0+ / 0-)

        the powers that be behind it just pissed billions of dollars away down the Rove and Company rathole. At this point, you're simply afraid of shadows.

        There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.

      •  Nope, you're right, they have it already to go. (0+ / 0-)

        There are some even here on DK that state we've already gotten the required State Legislature's that have voted to hold a new CC and that 3/4's mark was hit in the early 80's.

        Read the highlights, tell me these people aren't still in power today and I'll sell you a bridge in Brooklyn, real cheap.

        •  They are in power. That's why I'm suggesting (0+ / 0-)

          that we remove them from power.

          Why you would want to retain the dysfunctional status quo is really confusing to me.

          •  You're not paying attention, ;) (0+ / 0-)

            The whole point is if and when a CC is called, we will not be at the damn conference table.

            We will not have control of it in any way shape or form, not without armed violence or armed citizens demanding to be let into the room.

            I've researched this for many years and I'm telling you, we will lose any and all vestiges of freedom we hold dear.

              don't go back that far, please keep doing your research. If you go back farther than that, please send me your research, so that i can see what I've missed. Thanks.
