HUGE! The Bill of Federalism: THE Key to Taking our Country Back?

10 Proposed Amendments, going directly to supporters in all 50 States for ratification. And if 3/4 of the States ratify? Can Congress really vote against the will of 3/4 of the States, even if it wants to? The people would throw the bums out in a New York second.

As I see it, this could make the Gingrich "Contract With America" look like small potatoes indeed. Folks this could be the start of something really, really big. An alternative to Statism and Marxism that will resonate with large numbers of people. This could be our chance. Even if only some of the Amendments make it through, it will be huge.

Interview with Professor Barnett here, via PJTV.

Text and commentary on the proposed Amendments here:
Click here to see "The Bill of Federalism: 10 Amendments to be Proposed to the States for Ratification" as drafted by Professor Randy Barnett, working with the assistance and support of The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition. Professor Barnett will use the public comments posted here in developing a final document. This final document will be presented to supportive state legislators in all 50 states, with the idea that they will use it as a "template" in drawing up bills to petition Congress to convene a Constitutional Convention to pass the ten amendments that comprise "The Bill of Federalism". Upon the passage of these amendments by either a specially convened Constitutional Convention, or by Congress itself, "The Bill of Federalism" will be submitted to all 50 states for ratification. Upon ratification by 3/4 of these states, the ten amendments that comprise "The Bill of Federalism" will become part of the United States Constitution.
Let the debate begin.
