Gov. Greg Abbott wants Texas to lead the call for a revolt against Obama…

“If we are going to fight for, protect and hand on to the next generation, the freedom that [President] Reagan spoke of … then we have to take the lead to restore the rule of law in America,” Abbott said during a speech at the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Orientation.

Gov. Abbott released a nearly 70-page anti-Obama plan – detailing nine proposed constitutional amendments that he said would unravel the federal government’s decades-long power grab and restore authority over economic regulation and other matters to the states.

“The irony for our generation is that the threat to our Republic doesn’t come just from foreign enemies, it comes, in part, from our very own leaders,” Abbott said in a speech that took aim at President Obama, Congress and the judicial branch.

By this point, you may be wondering just what a constitutional convention or Convention of the States is and why it would be a big deal.

A convention is one of two ways that the U.S. Constitution can be amended, and it’s described in Article V. One way is that Congress can propose amendments approved by two-thirds of the members of both chambers.

The plan lays out nine specific proposed amendments that would:

• Prohibit congress from regulating activity that occurs wholly within one state.

• Require Congress to balance its budget.

• Prohibit administrative agencies from creating federal law.

• Prohibit administrative agencies from pre-empting state law.

• Allow a two-thirds majority of the states to override a U.S. Supreme Court decision.

• Require a seven-justice super-majority vote for U.S. Supreme Court decisions that invalidate a democratically enacted law

• Restore the balance of power between the federal and state governments by limiting the former to the powers expressly delegated to it in the Constitution.

• Give state officials the power to sue in federal court when federal officials overstep their bounds.

• Allow a two-thirds majority of the states to override a federal law or regulation.

A convention, Abbott wrote, would force the federal government to “take the Constitution seriously again.”

“The only true downside comes from doing nothing and allowing the federal government to continue ignoring the very document that created it,” Abbott wrote.
