34 States Could Force Congress to Call a Constitutional Convention - We Need to Limit the Commerce Clause

One of the biggest threats to our Republic is the continued assault on our freedoms by progressives/liberals who, by expanding the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, have made the entirety of our existence subject to the whims of the Washington elite.

Our Constitutional system of checks and balances has disintegrated as the Supreme Court leans more and more to the left with each vacancy that is filled. If, God forbid, one of the more Conservative judges departs during Obama's term, the tenuous balance of the Court will shift to the progressives/liberals and our beloved Republic will soon become the Socialist Republic of the United States of America.

The only recourse we will have then is the Article V Constitutional Convention.

                                                                     Article. V.

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

In the interests of our freedom and our way of life, I propose that we, as citizens of the United States of America start the lengthy process of restoring our Constitution, by petitioning each of our states' legislatures to make applications to Congress for a Constitutional Convention for the purpose of returning the meaning of the Commerce Clause to that which was intended by our founding fathers.
