The professional politicians have done an excellent job of splitting up the issues to keep the citizens fighting with each other so we don’t focus on the fact that they are the problem, not us.
The professional wrestling promoters know that good fighting evil and prompting the audience to be involved in the action will keep people engaged. Our career politicians know it, too.

Without a crisis to engage the public, the career politician is less significant.

#TermLimits
#ManufacturedCrisis are common in politics - They provide another more sinister advantage to the professional politician: misdirection and sleight of hand.

Both sides do it

They do it because there are no #TermLimits

#WeThePeople can put an end to it

IS OUR REPUBLIC OVER?

As we live our day to day lives, people don't have time to care about politics. While we were inattentive, changes have been happening!

Millions of illegal aliens have infiltrated our country because of our leaky border. Drugs and human trafficking are epidemics. Muslim refugees have been invited in, setting up enclaves that refuse to assimilate into our culture and advocate for Sharia law. In the meantime the ..

📢 #HAWAII 🔥

I'm Yelling from Canada

CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Something REALLY Hinky is going on in your legislature

You've got Dems who are PUSHING DANGEROUS #ConCon Legislation that other states are WISELY dropping like Hot Potatoes

Look at this Committee Report ‼️
#NoConCon
Link to #HI Senate Judiciary Committee Report on resolution #SCR131
capitol.hawaii.gov/session2019/Co…

🚨It was adopted despite opposition from 16 Orgs; including @ACLU, @CommonCause @IndivisibleHI AND testimony of a HI Attorney General

Possibly this AG? 👇
Situation in #HI so disturbs me that I'm writing this thread on a Friday Night!

Here's Legiscan pg showing #SCR131

Note Action: One Day Notice 04-01-19

No amt of searching HI legislative pages provided a def'n of what this means

My guess - it goes to Senate for vote Apr 1

GOOD MORNING #RESISTERS! 😺

Who's ready to kick some #ConCon Butt like we did last year!?

In 2018 only 1 #AstroTurf grps passed rslns calling for #ConventionOfStates

#COSProject: 0
#WolfPAC: 0
#BBATaskForce: 0
#USTermLimits: 2

#NoConCon
In fact we trounced these grps so hard in 2018 they've come out swinging 2019

They're RABIDLY pushing #ConventionOfStates

#COSProject has already passed 2 (AR UT)

AND 2 being RAMMED thru MS & KS 🚨

2nd pg #NoConConTracker - see 1st pg for more info 👇
docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…
#USTermLimits emboldened by their Victories in 2018 are pushing HARD to get more #ConventionOfStates rslns passed this year

🚨 2 are slated for FINAL VOTE - They're at FINISH LINE in #AZ & #GA

WE MUST PREVENT ANOTHER WIN for ANY of these grps

Dem Legislators in CT DE IA MD ME MO NM NY OR VA WA

🔥PLEASE IMMEDIATELY WITHDRAW YOUR RESOLUTIONS calling for a #ConventionOfStates "for purposes of overturning Supreme Courts Citizens United Ruling"🔥

#HR1 is addressing this issue by SAFELY

A Dangerous #COS is NOT REQUIRED
By "Safely" I mean using the method of obtaining 2/3 votes in Congress

NOT by opening the Constitution up to a complete rewrite; a plan that's been financed and pushed by Dark Money AstroTurf grps for years now

Do not play into their hands
#NoConCon

The Religious Right behind this stealth drive is VERY close to achieving their goal

They must be prevented AT ALL COSTS

It may be possible for #ConCon/#COS calls for dif amendments to be combined

🔥We cannot afford to have ANY COS calls on the table

Dear @HillaryClinton,
I'm appealing directly to you for help in stopping the stealth mission to Rewrite the Constitution.

As of today, Feb 9/19, there are 52 resolutions in 23 state legislatures for an Article V Convention of States (COS). Of these,13 are D sponsored & 8 R+D!
It was because of a televised speech you gave years ago that I heard about GOP plans for a COS, and never forgot your warning.

This is significant, as I'm a CDN living in Canada and the terrifying implications of this were crystal clear to me.
What's more horrifying however, is:

How close GOP is to realising their goal
How Dems are playing right into their plans
How MSM is not covering this
And
How few Americans know it's happening!

Thread: Nothing can or will be done to trump until we can elect a dem congress. Until (and if, thank you cheating republicans) we can do that, IGNORE the distractions of his twitter rants and BS. The biggest reason the GOP is not doing anything to stop him is because he is a
perfect distraction for the people. While our eyes are on him, we aren't seeing what's going on behind the scenes and in our own states. The Koch brothers are pushing for a convention of states. They did a great job of getting their bought and paid for GOP congress to pass the
worst piece of legislation they could have in the tax scam bill, so don't think their reach cannot accomplish getting an Article V convention. They are pushing this as a Balanced Budget necessity, but that is just the beginning. If a runaway convention occurs, they can and WILL
