February 2, 2015 8:00 pm -

Sarah Palin is urging her Facebook followers to contact their state legislators to limit a “government gone wild.”


By calling a Convention of the States, average citizens can stop the federal spending spree, power grabs, and other abuses by proposing amendments to rein in the federal government,” Palin said.

She directed her social media followers to a blog post written by her daughter, Bristol Palin, who provided contact information for Virginia lawmakers.

“The beauty of this process is that neither the President nor Congress has the authority to stop it,” Palin said. “It is truly in the hands of We the People. This idea is really the last recourse of the citizens to rein in DC and restore our country to a Constitutionally limited federal government.”

    “and be sure to give us your money so we can make SURE that all Americans….”
    right right right. just another quick grift as she sinks below for the third time.

    OK Fine.

    First order of business, repeal of the 2nd amendment and replacing it with an amendment that there is no individual right to bear arms.

    Do these people lack the intelligence to understand that in a Constitutional convention, everything is on the table? Are they so insulated in their ideological bubble that they have convinced themselves that only ideas they support would be approved?

    Do they think the birth certificate is fake?

    Do they think the President is a secret Muslim?

    You get my drift.

    • Mike February 2nd, 2015 at 8:45 pm

      I’ve tried to warn TBaggers there is a danger in opening Pandora’s Box. The reps from each state would be slick constitutional lawyers who would snatch the narrative away from them in seconds and lead us down a road laid out by the 1%.
      There are many more dangers than benefits, no wonder Sarah the Grifter likes it.

        Well it’s not like our legislature would pass a law that would let a foreign country build a pipe line across your property that will carry a toxic liquid which you might be responsible for should it poison one the largest sources of fresh water in the US…….oh wait.

    • John Tarter February 2nd, 2015 at 10:33 pm

      I wouldn’t worry about the 2nd Amendment. That particular item has never had as much support as it does today.

      • tiredoftea February 2nd, 2015 at 11:01 pm

        It was a well settled, non issue until the fringe right gun fetish lobby used it to agitate for a permanent state of paranoia in a susecptible southern, white, populace

      • edmeyer_able February 2nd, 2015 at 11:05 pm


        Nine in 10 Americans support expanding background checks on gun purchases in a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, an extraordinary level of agreement on a political issue and a finding that’s been duplicated in nearly every major public poll.

      • Mike February 2nd, 2015 at 11:36 pm

        Actually John, if you knew anything at all about the Constitution or the Federalist Papers (specifically Fed #46) you’d realize that the 2nd out of all the amendments is the shakiest of them all. An Art V Convention like the one the Palin’s are calling for would doom it for sure since a strick interpretation of fed #46 and Madison’s true wishes would be followed…sorry, I like being able to have a weapon, I wish they were regulated a lot more, but that said, a CC would take that right away from me.

        You are an exceptionally ignorant troll who really should stick to copy and pasting witty pictures instead of actually writing.

        For your reading enjoyment.

        • John Tarter February 3rd, 2015 at 1:02 am

          Oh, and you are the learned one. You know, I thought the same thing, but if the 2nd Amendment is not on the agenda, it won’t be included.
          But nice of you to bring up Madison. You do know that he vetoed a bill that was passed to provide federal monies for roads, canals, and bridges before he left the presidency, right? And his reason? Because the Constitution did not authorize such an expenditure of funds. He said the only way this could be done is if a new amendment was passed and to my knowledge none ever was. So what do you think of that?

          • arc99 February 3rd, 2015 at 1:20 am

            Madison’s successor, James Monroe held a different opinion.

            As for the second amendment, your opinion notwithstanding, a Constitutional convention would put the entire document, including the Bill of Rights up for revision or repeal.

            It would be ironic indeed if right wing hubris resulted in repeal of the 2nd amendment so that individual ownership of a firearm is clearly stated to not be an enumerated right or for that matter an unenumerated right of the 9th amendment. Assuming of course the 9th amendment survived a Constitutional convention.


            Good roads and canals will promote many very important national purposes. They will facilitate the operations of war, the movements of troops, the transportation of cannon, of provisions, and every warlike store, much to our advantage and to the disadvantage of the enemy in time of war. Good roads will facilitate the transportation of the mail, and thereby promote the purposes of commerce and political intelligence among the people. They will by being properly directed to these objects enhance the value of our vacant lands, a treasure of vast resource to the nation. To the appropriation of the public money to improvements having these objects in view and carried to a certain extent I do not see any well-founded constitutional objection.

          • John Tarter February 3rd, 2015 at 1:35 am

            James Monroe? We were talking about James Madison and his veto of a national infrastructure bill. The only constitutional roads were the ones mentioned – postal roads and military roads.

          • arc99 February 3rd, 2015 at 1:42 am

            And I was talking about the next President who had a very different opinion about what the Constitution allowed. Why is President Monroe’s opinion as President any less valid than Madison’s?

            Simply because Madison’s view supports your opinion and Monroe’s does not, is not a credible argument

          • Mike February 3rd, 2015 at 9:08 am

            You might want to go back and read Scalia’s ruling, he also said the government has the right to regulate the purchase, transfer, use, type, and number of weapons…
            Only a child would think a future court can’t and won’t overturn Scalia’s belief that an individual right exists…you are just one Justice away from that happening, and if Hillary wins, you lose, because the next appointment will be a liberal and the first order of business will be to try and put an end to 17k murders a year.
            Good luck, and please carry on with your ignorant pursuit.

    “The beauty of this (amendment) process is that neither the President nor Congress has the authority to stop it,”-Palin’16~ is really that constitutionally illiterate.

    • Mike February 2nd, 2015 at 8:41 pm

      True, no amendment has ever been proposed but it is a possibility.
      Art V states “…or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments,…”
      This is what TBaggers are pushing for. If you Google the Art V Project you’ll see they want to repeal every amendment after the 10th but in particular, the 14th, 15th, and 16th…in short, back to the days before Reconstruction. It’s a facile attempt to unlose (if you will) the Civil War. Cruz is a big supporter of this movement.

        The 14th has got to go. It was never intended by it’s authors to confirm citizenship on babies of foreigners simply because they were born here. It was written to address the issue of former slaves being denied citizenship.

        • Mike February 2nd, 2015 at 11:06 pm

          Well I’ll agree that simpletons like you think the only thing the 14th represents is a way for anchor babies and gays to have equal rights, but those of us that finished the 5th grade learned about something called incorporation….and it works both ways…gun right’s advocates won in both Heller and McDonald because of incorporation…I guess you don’t want the protections guaranteed by the US Constitution to apply to all citizens of all states…like I said, good luck with that.
          Have a nice evening.

          • John Tarter February 3rd, 2015 at 1:38 am

            I don’t want to be paying for hormone therapy for people here illegally and I am sure gay people can find the best hook up sites on their own. This kind of stuff is absurd and needs to be ended.

          • Mike February 3rd, 2015 at 8:53 am

            Like I said, you’re a simpleton who thinks that’s what the 14th represents. You know nothing about Stare Decisis, Incorporation, or Case Law and how the 14th affects you directly allowing us more liberties than a pea sized brain like yours could imagine. Your hate has clouded your judgement so all you see is red. It’s actually kind of pleasant watching you suffer your imaginary demons.
            I wish you all the luck in the world and hope you spend every available moment working on the Art V Project…when it fails, don’t say you weren’t warned.

        • tiredoftea February 2nd, 2015 at 11:13 pm

          Yes, let’s just roll back legally enacted amendments so you can count the black people you want to own as 3/5 for census purposes. Oh, don’t like the census, either? No problem, Sarah and her family will throw that in to the insurrectionist campaign for a little extra.

          You are a despicable fool. Your white separatist compound buddies are calling for the cross burning, better get on back there.

          • John Tarter February 3rd, 2015 at 12:47 am

            Don’t be ridiculous. Nobody wants to count any person regardless of color as anything except another person. When you can’t offer a good argument go for the race card.
            The problem is a Federal government that has gone beyond all bounds of propriety. Funding things like the mating habits of ants and which are the best gay internet hook up sites is not a Federal government mandate. And the latest insanity? Providing hormone therapy for transgenders h

          • Dwendt44 February 3rd, 2015 at 12:58 pm

            How then would you show citizenship? I’m sure any change from the current would consist of efforts to include fetuses, and embryos as citizens.
            Citizenship based on the birth place of the parent just changes the demographic to another group of people you might not like.

        • arc99 February 3rd, 2015 at 1:30 am

          Ironically, it is Justice Scalia who offers the best rebuttal as far as what the authors of the Constitution intended being the prism through which we view the Constitution.

          Scalia states that intent is irrelevant. It is the words in the Constiution that matter and the 14th amendment clearly states

          “”All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States””

          There is no mention of the citizenship of the parents of those born in the United States. If you are born here, you are a citizen.

          By Associate Justice Antonin Scalia

          You will sometimes hear it described as the theory of original intent. You will never hear me refer to original intent, because I am first of all a textualist, and secondly an original- ist. If you are a textualist, you don’t care about the intent, and I don’t care if the Framers of the U.S. Constitution had some secret meaning in mind when they adopted its words. I take the words as they were promulgated to the people of the United States, and what is the fairly understood meaning of those words.

    • John Tarter February 2nd, 2015 at 10:54 pm

      But the Congress is not proposing any amendments. The states, which created the CFederal government in the first place is doing all the work. There are 2 ways to amend the Constitution. One is the Congress starting the process OR the state legislatures starting the process. It’s completely legal AND constitutional.

      • Obewon February 3rd, 2015 at 12:11 am

        You’re partying like it’s 1789? 2/3 of the states just aren’t nutty enough for you delusional’s “By a national convention assembled at the request of the legislatures of at least two-thirds (at present 34) of the states”. Lol …and then the GOP adopted a flying pink elephant as it’s mascot.

        • Paraska February 3rd, 2015 at 6:43 am

          What’s happened to the use of appropriate basic grammar in this country?!?!? Have they stopped teaching basics?!?!? Please stop making a word plural by using an apostrophe. Just add “s” or “es”. Apostrophes are used as a contraction or to denote possession, as in “Sarah’s daughter”. So, the collective plural of “delusion” is “delusionals”. When you write “it’s mascot”…what you’re saying is “it is mascot”. Apostrophe isn’t used correctly, again. It should be “its mascot”.

      I’m thinking that you’re referring to George III, who was king at the time of the American Revolution. Before throwing childish “coloring book” insults at people with whom you disagree, how about getting your facts straight? Now let’s consider the Bill of Rights. Will you join with me, Sarah, and Bristol on supporting the First Amendment right of free speech by getting rid of absurd leftist icons such as university speech codes and suppressing protests at places such abortion mills? Keep the Second and Third, with the Founders’ understanding of the Second. Read the thoughts of George Mason. As for the Fourth, will you help oppose the administration’s continuation of the policy on warrantless wiretaps? Now the Fifth. Will you help oppose government land grabs in violation of the Takings clause, including those for sketchy environmental reasons? Looking OK on the Sixth and Seventh. The Eighth prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. Shall we agree that death row inmates who whine that the needle will hurt during a lethal injection don’t have much room for argument? The Ninth is fine. Now the Tenth…ah the Tenth. What part of powers not granted to the national government shall be left to the states, or to the people, do you not understand?

  29. illinoisboy1977 February 3rd, 2015 at 4:31 pm

    While I’m not a fan of the Palins, what they’re saying is true. 2/3 of the States’ legislatures can call a constitutional convention, even against the wishes of Congress and write an amendment to the Constitution. But, there’s a BIG caveat: any amendment has to be ratified by 3/4 of the states (38 of 50). So, if the Palins do want to write an amendment, it’ll have to be passed by a majority of the people, to become law.
