I'm conflicted as I don't understand why Michal Farris, the co-founder of both HSLDA and Patrick Henry College , would back this if it would be detrimental.
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.....seems like the apt phrase for this.
The Convention of States / Aritcle V Consitutional Convention / Con Con is appealing to people through deception. That is a fact. And that is the tragedy of it.
Digging deeper into the Convention of States, I find that there is a Texas billionaire named Leo Linbeck III, who is the champion of the misnamed Fair Tax. Actually, his father who passed away recently, began that scheme, but his son, Linbeck III, is still in the Fair Tax game, only this time through the COS / Article V proposition.
In the midst of upper economic echelons and now in the midst of middle class, disgruntled taxpayers, Mr. Linbeck has found he can manipulate politicians, and policies with his fortune. Sadly, I find some of my conservative tea party friends being sucked into the whirling toilet bowl he is stirring up. I've been told bysome of them that the Fair Tax is why they want the Convention of States / Constitutional Convention. I wondered why the Con Con was going to be bringing in the Fair Tax, so I went looking for answers. Mr. Leo Linbeck III is that answer.
