from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
We have a rather odd opportunity this election season with up to four scenarios to consider, as I see things.
Unfortunately, none of our options is great.
First option is that Donald Trump wins the presidency, the Republicans retain the Senate, and the Democrats keep the House. In other words, status quo.
Second option is Trump wins, but the Senate is lost to the Dems, and the Dems retain the House.
Third option is that Trump loses, but Republicans retain the Senate, Dems retain the House.
And the fourth, what conservatives fear the most and what I will concentrate on, is Trump loses, the Dems also take the Senate, while retaining the House, giving them full control of government.
In case you’re wondering, I didn’t include an option of a Republican sweep of both Houses of Congress and the White House. Anything is possible, but not probable.
If the fourth scenario does come to pass, as many are predicting, most agree it will surely be a disaster.
While true, it doesn’t have to spell the end of America, as some are predicting.
Luckily for us, our Founding Fathers, those geniuses who crafted the Declaration and Constitution, thought this might happen, perhaps even be inevitable, which is why they installed a backstop against tyranny without having to completely, “throw off such Government,” or, “absolve” it, but rather, “to alter” it.
And that backstop is the Constitution’s Article V, Convention of States.
Oh, here we go, you may be saying – drag out the Constitution that most know nothing about. That’s real productive.
Our country is on the verge of meltdown and I bring up some academic experiment? Well, you may be right, but if the fourth scenario comes to pass, we’ll have lost the federal government – and not just two, but all three branches.
If it happens, I’d like to hear a better way forward.
As I see it, it’s our only shot. So let’s get to it, shall we?
