To fully comprehend what is currently going on with the Article V convention movement, one must understand that those who are really behind promoting an Article V convention are using reasonably sophisticated techniques to get their audience to go along with their position. It is also important to understand that their motive is something different than what their uninformed minions say it is. They do not really want to get the feds under control.

The effort to call an Article V convention was initiated and funded in 1963 by the Ford Foundation in furtherance of its objective (shared with the Rockefeller Foundation) of establishing regional governance (Soviet Union-styled communism) in the U.S. In 1953 the United States House Select Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations (Reece Committee) determined that Foundations were supporting un-American objectives in this country. According to Norman Dodd, chief investigator for Reese Committee, the idea of regional governance in America originated with the Ford Foundation.continue reading
A restoration of Constitutional governance requires more than the lip-service afforded it by the various 10th Amendment resolutions currently being put forth by the States. It requires actual action.

(xiii) (Read complete article here.)
The States have a duty to interpose any time anything or anyone threatens our rights, including our right to "Life, Liberty" and property. If a hostile band of Canadians unexpectedly sweep down from the north to conquer and pillage, the states have a duty to stop those wild-eyed Canadians.continue reading
