1. WTF? This is misleading and dangerous ratfuckery. Do you have any idea what chaos could

be visited upon us if the Koch brothers realize their dream of a Constitutional convention? Your viral e-mail confuses two issues...it is not necessary to hold a convention to pass an amendment. This is dishonest, destructive propaganda at its most insidious, using the pretext of "something we can all agree on...holding Congress to the same standard as everyone else," to slip in something that would be appalling beyond belief and would make Pandora's box look like pop goes the weasel.
Please don't fall for this, Bresue. Whoever wrote it is a liar and no friend of democracy.

4. Tanuki....why do you think I posted it here?

We need to investigate, research, and debate anything like this.....I am not going to pass this along to 20 more people, and want to discuss here on DU.

However, if there is this misinformation out there floating around....we need to be aware of it to fact check early and dis-spell the lies.

Thank you for your input...and I hope others will comment also.

5. Agree. It's also anti-Democrat since we're in Congress too.

Posts lying about Democrats, suggesting they're as corrupt as Republicans, hardly further our interests.

2. Only thing is an amendment must either pass both houses with a 2/3 majority

or be passed in a Constitutional convention before going out for ratification by the states. So, this one will never happen.

3. This is NOT TRUE. Why did you post it here, Bresue?

A quick googling would have established this.

6. My question is....what do I argue back?

I am not trying to promote this....but I want this argued and debated. I want all of us to know that this is floating around and be prepared to repel.

7. Suggest you delete this anti-government propaganda. Should anyone

ever bring up the topic, you can tell them it's a lie. "Debate" not needed.
