Have we 34 governors with a clue?

by Smitty

Stephen Green on Trifecta mentions the growing gubernatorial consciousness of the 10th Amendment.

It's actually got me in a cheerful mood, to consider the possibility of an Article 5 gathering:
on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress

They could start with an outburst of common sense along the lines of the Federalism Amendment. Sure, it's never been done. Then again, we seem to be in a shock and awe decade on so many, many levels.

The thought of 546 (Congress, SCOTUS, Frick and Frack) Federal eff-wits facing a come-to-Beavis moment... Easily the most satisfying thought of this administration.

Get your 12 September plans made. Let's stuff the Mall and communicate a solid, Constitutional message, ye patriots. Keep building the momentum. Republican governors in Virginia and New Jersey this November. 2010, 2012.

All isn't lost yet. Think of it. Future American generations not faced with inevitable debt-slavery. Potentially, we're close enough to the brink to trigger a course alteration.
