As you hopefully have noticed by now, the Federal government is out of control. The tentacles of their overreach are firmly entrenched in our businesses, our lives, even our religion. There is no sign of pulling back, only moving forward with the stranglehold that they have on the individual and economic liberties of the American people.
There doesn't seem to be a way to decrease the size, scope and intrusiveness of government. They are too drunk with power to release any of their influence, and seem hellbent on increasing it even more. No matter who is elected to Congress, from no matter which party, the status quo continues and the tentacles of government continue to grow and to tighten their stranglehold on the American people.
You've got to recognize it, too, Tama. Stop what you're doing and take a look around at what is happening. The loss of our liberties and the decay of our society is happening at breakneck speed, with no sign of slowing down. There is no way that the power-hungry apparatus in Washington D.C. will relinquish any of their power, no matter who is elected, UNLESS the several States take action.
I call on you, Tama, to put forth a resolution that Minnesota join the 29 other states who have called for a Constitutional Convention to wrest back control from the Federal Government and give it back to the States and to the People respectively.
Things are out of control, Tama. You know it and I know it.
It's up to the Minnesota legislator and We the People to do something about it.
Remember Ronald Reagan's quote, (paraphrased), "I don't want to live in the generation that has to explain to their grandchildren what it was like to be free."
All the exit ramps on the Federal Government Highway to Hell expressway to a brick wall have been passed, with no sign of slowing down, but rather myriad signs of exponentially-increasing breakneck speed.
I implore you, Representative Theis, to put forth an Article V resolution and join other State legislatures who are calling for a Constitutional Convention.
