Save the Constitution Rally
September 12, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Rep Kelly Townsend, R-Mesa, is leading the Arizona planning convention on September 12, 2017. She has invited leaders from around the country to join in planning the next convention to tweak the US Constitution. The title is the Arizona Balanced Budget Amendment Planning Convention. The Convention is funded by the Koch brothers. This is a planning session for an ACTUAL Constitutional Convention in which Kelly and other extreme right wingers will have access to the Constitution in a way none are personally, professionally, intellectually or morally, qualified.
“Not only will this historic convention lay the groundwork for a desperately needed Balanced Budget Amendment at the federal level, but it will also provide Arizona the opportunity to shine nationally,” Townsend said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited to start our work.”
Our biggest concern are the lawmakers attending are very quietly tying to draft a new Constitution. The Balanced Budget Amendment is a smokescreen to deny Americans the social safety nets they desperately need and deserve. We do not believe they will stop with a Balanced Budget Amendment. We believe these “mock” Constitutional Conventions will allow the extreme conservatives in America to alter the Constitution any way they see fit.
Rep Townsend is not publicizing her organizing efforts.
Rep Townsend is not Alexander Hamilton. The Koch’s and the other extreme conservatives invited to Arizona on September 12th are no Founding Fathers. We demand they keep their hands off OUR Constitution.
