One thing is certain, you never see their next move coming and yesterday Senate President Bill Cole and the Republican Majority in the Senate voted for a Constitutional convention of the states, first ever since 1787.
“This will do nothing for the state of West Virginia” said Democratic Senator Mike Romano. “Do not vote for a plan to change what has made this [country] the greatest country on Earth.”
Once again, we ask ourselves if this doesn’t help the people of West Virginia then who does it help? The answer is quite clear considering the resolution is identical to a model adopted by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) in September of 2015.
Big money donors and friends of Bill Cole and Republicans sure are getting their monies worth.
The West Virginia Republican Party hold the majority in the State Legislature and they will stop at nothing to pass their self-dealing, anti-worker legislation. They are even willing to open up the Constitution that our country was founded on, the Constitution that made American the greatest country on Earth, and the Constitution that was created by our Founding Fathers to ensure that America and her people had their freedoms.
Senator Bill Cole and the Republican majority will stop at nothing until they take your money, your property rights, your civil rights, your voting rights, and now your Constitutional safeguards.
