Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., explained to a town hall of his constituents that he wanted to call a national Constitutional Convention after reading Mark Levin’s new book, The Liberty Amendments.
“I used to have a great fear of constitutional conventions,” Coburn said according to the Tulsa World. “I have a great fear now of not having one.”
This will truly put the cat among the pigeons.
Watch the left and their media minions melt down starting at about six o’clock tonight.
If you haven’t read Levin’s new book yet, I heartily recommend that you do so:
Let me explain why this concept so terrifies the statist left (and some on the statist right). Our rulers have been perfectly happy to frame the political options of those disatisfied with their rule as being between pursuing already long-failed strategies to unseat them, or waging violent revolution. They rightly presume that not enough will choose the latter to be any threat to their power.
This, however – a non-violent, constitutional strategy that, if implemented, would definitely remove a large part of the constitutional destruction they’ve wreaked over the past century, and upon which they base their power today – offers a third, and vastly more attractive alternative.
Of course they are terrified of it, and they are right to be. It is an existential dagger of liberty aimed right at their evil, tyrannical hearts.
