Has our Constitution expired?(A Follow On Piece To This Previous Post is coming soon. Reading This Piece Fresh In Your Mind, Will make the follow on click right in place.)
Many now believe an Elite mob controls most of the money in the US and use the money for power, political power. A large majority of Americans don’thave trust in America’s major Institutions. Congress, the President, Education, The Media, and Large Corporations. The gulf between the wealthy and the other 90 % of Americans is staggering.
Our Media is owned by Five major corporations, 90% of the information provided to us is from these Five corporations. It has become so obvious that the Liberal, Progressive, and Anti-Trump Agenda is promoted 24/7 by these Five. Usually using the same narrative on every issue. Journalism has been replaced by entertainment for advertising money. Thus, our ability to make informed decisions has hoodwinked all of us.
Since this Power and Control is greatest on congress, we expect no laws coming forth to control it.
We must break the dominance of the top 10%, by breaking up their monopolies, resulting in targeted lobbying and resulting in the control and corruption of our congress. We cannot depend on our existing institutions, especially congress to make any substantial remedy for America bound, Kidnapped, and Extorted by the Elite.
Campaign Finance law and rules must-be totally shredded, and replaced with democracy protection, and a new People Campaign finance.
We need a New Constitutional Convention, to update our constitution to reflect the lessons we’ve learned in the last 200+ years. To strengthen our Democracy. Protect us from Oligarchs, and an encroaching; Plutocrat government.
Not a redistribution of wealth, or to kill incentives, nor reduce investments. If the Elite think this is so, too bad, we need to reclaim democracy and end the Plutocracy creep with all their advantages, and privilege, they have woven into this American abomination.
It’s not white privilege, it’s aristocratic privilege. America’s wage earners and middle classes are all being pushed back from the table.
Consider; John Biden’s son, Hunter, as a typical Aristocrat. Given the advantages of a Yale education, Naval Reserve officer, joined a major law firm, then he was mysteriously chosen to be on the board of an Ukraine Oil company, who was expected to get a windfall of prosperity, as America had assured them assistance to vastly increase their oil production after Russia had recently cut them off.
Then his firm, somehow landed a 1 1/2 Billion dollar account in a Chinese bank, controlled by the Chinese government. Just three weeks after Joe Biden visited China, representing the US Government. Hunter was on their board also, with an estimated $500,000 share in the fund being set up. John Kerry’s stepson was also a board member. The good ole boys are now the aristocracy.
The Aristocracy class, with their families have a clear advantage. Also a clear advantage for corruption, graft, and disloyalty. Free, and protected from criminal suspensions or called out by media or party. This is privilege!
The following polls and data will help you see the seriousness of America’s slide. I fully expect the Elite, with their Power and Money domination, if not checked will move quickly further, tightening control on populace opinions, a pretense to increase restriction of out freedoms, and virtual slavery of the wage class, through the 90% of Americans.
Power Corrupts. Then Corrupts more. Corruption spreads like am invisible plague. We may see the rise of,

“It is not just that the one tenth of 1% owns more wealth than the bottom 90%. They don’t put their wealth underneath their mattresses, right. They use that wealth to perpetrate, perpetuate their power. And they do that politically” –@BernieSanders http://bit.ly/2AXU8jh
HOW TO CALL A CONSTITUION CONVENSION
The familiar part of Article V of the Constitution states thatCongress, with the two-thirds approval of both the House and the Senate, canpropose amendments to the Constitution, subject to ratification bythree-fourths of the states. But there is a second path: “on the applicationof the legislatures” of two-thirds of the states, Congress “shall call a conventionfor proposing amendments,” the amendments being subject to ratification bythree-fourths of the states.
The polarization of America almost 50/50, lack of ourcongress to work together, Violent and provocative speech by Congress and thePresident. The inability to get true and timely information from our media, whohas also turned up the rhetoric. They have all been irresponsible and blind tothe danger they are putting our democracy in. All of this could, and I believewill lead to great violence in America. Possibly a revolution of some scope.
It can start with two-thirds of the state legislatures. Bypassing our current political swamp, media betrayal, and the Elites. But the Elites will not go down without a fight, so this most be a populous and grass roots effort. We need respected and well-known leaders, unencumbered by politics or Elitist. Who are you! Where are you! Here the call of our forefathers! God bless America.
