With Trump as President, maybe Cruz, Rubio and Kasich could get some of these bills and laws straightened out.

This article was written before West Virginia joined the effort. For a Convention of the States dedicated to the discussion of a balanced budget amendment, the count is now 29 down, 5 to go.

For a more comprehensive Convention of the States dedicated to the Georgia application language extracted from Mark Levin's The Liberty Amendments, the count is still 6 down, 28 to go.

ME!!! Because it does not stop at the budget. I have read Mark Levin's liberty amendments and there are only a couple that actually liberate us from the beast. The majority will ultimately have the opposite affect of what they propose.

The author's leftist perspective:

<>Maybe the alternative is the revolution Bernie Sanders is envisioning: Electing insurgent candidates to Congress, state and local office; strengthening and expanding direct democratic institutions like the ballot initiative process; making constitutional changes that elevate democratic decisions above corporate personhood; and building a movement that engages the thousands of communities where democratic governance has been all but quashed by ALEC-endorsed legal doctrine and legislation.<>

Rats love democracy. They abhor federalism.

Democracy works toward Bernie's goals; federalism is the means toward a good end, free government.

A Constitutional Convention cannot be anything but a disaster of epic proportions.

There are no limits to what such a group can change about the US Government. And you can be certain that "Progressives" will dominate the proceedings from the outset.

A large plurality, possible a majority of the US population wants Socialism. The appeal of "Free stuff for everybody" is very hard to overcome and mere facts will not matter. People want to believe. The Progressive organizers will use them to seize power at every opportunity.

Republicans control the House, the Senate, and most state legislatures.

They could pass an Amendment right now. But they won’t. Yet these are the same people we are to trust with an Art. V convention.

Don’t be played.

I am of the opinion that the best path to a balanced budget is to adopt a method of taxation based upon representation call representative apportionment.

Under this concept, the States are billed for the taxes. The tax bill would be split into two even portions. One is to then be divided by the number of representatives and the second portion is then divided by the number of senators. Each state would then be billed for the sum total of it’s Senators and Representatives.

I want a balanced budget, but I want term limits more. Very much more. And congress won’t go down that road, so we the people - MUST!

Keynesian Economics was proven to be a fraud decades ago.

It doesn’t prevent them from stimulating the economy at all. Just build up a rainy day fund like any normal human being is supposed to, and stimulate away with it when you need to.

“A balanced budget amendment would prevent the federal government from following the Keynesian strategy of stimulating the economy “

Which would be a very good thing.
