Update: Bill was stopped in the Senate!
It is my duty to report to you that the Florida House passed a bill [H 499] today that calls for a Constitutional Convention which could potentially rewrite the Bill of Rights and everything our Founding Fathers stood for! They are disguising this bill as a Trojan Horse in the form of "Balanced Budget Amendment."
Imagine Obama being able to "edit" the Constitution as he feels? SM 1142 must be stopped.
The Constitutional Conventional Bill,CS/SM 1142: Federal Balanced Budget Amendment,[similar to H 499] is now in the Senate Budget Committee. Here are the members:
- Senator Thad Altman (R)
- Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto (R)
- Senator Michael S. "Mike" Bennett (R)
- Senator Ellyn Setnor Bogdanoff (R)
- Senator Anitere Flores (R)
- Senator Don Gaetz (R)
- Senator Alan Hays (R)
- Senator Arthenia L. Joyner (D)
- Senator Evelyn J. Lynn (R)
- Senator Gwen Margolis (D)
- Senator Bill Montford (D)
- Senator Jim Norman (R)
- Senator Nan H. Rich (D)
- Senator Garrett Richter (R)
- Senator David Simmons (R)
- Senator Gary Siplin (D)
- Senator Eleanor Sobel (D)
- Senator John Thrasher (R)

The proposal for a second Constitutional Convention (Con-Con) promoted by so-called conservatives, would likely result in a runaway convention in which extremist or revolutionary elements could high jack the convention and alter the Constitution to include harmful amendments, such as “second generation” or “positive” socialist rights while curtailing our nation’s traditional negative rights that protect our liberties from the government.
Stop Florida Con-Con Call
On Tuesday, January 10, 2012 House Concurrent Resolution 8005, was introduced to the Florida State House of Representatives. Bill HCR 8005 applies for the Congress of the United States to call a convention for proposing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to provide for a balanced budget amendment (BBA).
