John Kasich Throws His Hat in the Ring for GOP Presidential Nomination

Kasich, who barely cracks 2 percent in most national polls of Republican primary voters, becomes the sixteenth Republican to join the race for the GOP nomination. While most pundits give him little chance of winning the nomination, Kasich made two things clear in his announcement—he doesn’t care that few political experts give him much of a chance to win, and he intends to have fun along the way.

“A careful review of the 100-plus pages is in order to fully understand the lengths to which the negotiators were willing to stoop to secure a deal at any cost with the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism and a regime dedicated in word and deed to bringing Death to America,” Dr. Ben Carson’s statement reads.

‘Dirty Dozen’ Liberal Blue States Going Broke

The “dirty dozen” liberal blue states are headed towards the sort of fiscal insolvency now unraveling the country of Greece, and their fiscal recklessness may well drag down the entire federal government as well. All the more reason for the rest of us in the “Great 38 States” to consider convening an Assembly of the States so that fiscally responsible states can assert their sovereign rights guaranteed by the 10th amendment.

How the Proposed ‘Assembly of the States’ Differs from an Article V Convention of the States

The proposed Assembly of the States can begin any time a single state legislature decides to act as host. A May 2016 start date is entirely reasonable, as most of the 50 state legislatures will convene in January 2016, which gives plenty of time for them to act, if they are so inclined. And the recommendations from the Assembly of the States could be put into effect immediately by the states.

Call for an ‘Assembly of the States’ in May 2016

We are, after all, the United States of America, not the United Federal Government of America. The Assembly of the States would convene irrespective of the number of state legislatures that choose to send a delegation. Should all 50 states choose to send a delegation, a total of 250 delegates would be present. Should just the host state’s delegates attend, a total of only 5 delegates will be present.

Time for the States to Declare Independence From the Federal Government

One hundred and fifty years after the end of the Civil War, it is becoming increasingly clear that there are two Americas—one where the principles of constitutionally limited government and individual liberty are still revered, the other where statism and the trampling of individual rights are on the rise. Widespread resistance at the state level, however, will require two elements: strong governors and strong state legislatures willing to vigorously assert their 10th amendment rights.
