The 8 Weapons you need to finally put the "ConCon" Boogeyman to rest once and for all!
For decades now, Americans have allowed all the “conventional” fears to run the Article V-balanced budget amendment debate, but in many ways, these “conventional” fears were justified, because all previous Article V efforts did little to address people’s honest concerns, and the genuine fears they had surrounding the Article V issue.
Thankfully, today, these conventional fears have been addressed with America’s Compact for a balanced budget. But, unfortunately, this doesn’t prevent a fearful few from continuing to repeat the same talking points that have already been addressed by CFA’s Compact legislation.
That’s okay though, because we now have the eight weapons we need to finally put the “ConCon” boogeyman to rest once and for all!
All we have to do is arm ourselves with the truth, and encourage everyone to GET THE FACTS… NOT THE FEAR!
So, here goes! Here are the eight weapons you need to prove once and for all that Compact for America’s Application approach to advancing and ratifying Constitutional amendments provides all the Certainty, Safety, and Speed we need to finally put the "ConCon" Boogeyman to rest!
