There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves or lose our ventures.
Like Brutus, I can feel momentum. Sense it. The fiasco rollout of the Obamacare website woke me up, and I knew something big was up. The government, through President Obama, had not only lied and deceived the people, it had been exposed as breathtakingly incompetent. The tide turned, at that moment, to run with us. It’s been running strong for close to two years, and shows no sign of abating. This website, and my work with the BBA Task Force, is premised on a political tide of historic proportions. Article V needs such a tide to succeed. A storm tide.
We are so close, and the obstacles we face are eminently surmountable. Everyone is all jacked up about San Diego. Biddulph is putting on a big show the evening of Thursday, July 23rd. It’s on the official ALEC calendar, and has no competition. We may get a couple hundred people in the room. It’s coming together. Article V is approaching critical mass. Once enough state legislators see the opportunity afforded them by Article V, once they realize they have the power to fix this country, it is bound to happen.
When, in American history, has virtually the entire country been more disgusted with Washington D. C. and everybody in it? Never before has the federal government been more aggressive, overbearing and incompetent. People are so thoroughly pissed off that they cry out for something to be done about these outrages. And nothing really happens. So they wonder if anything can be done.
Enter Article V, stage right. Put your faith not in politicians, but in the people. Tell them the story of Article V, tell them it was designed for today, and tell them that if they want to save their country they have a tool. A tool the Framers knew would some day be needed. They hold it in their hands.
The filming that will begin in San Diego is the beginning of the telling of the tale.
And what a tale we have to tell.
