Convention: To Resurrect the U.S. Constitution by Paul Antinori

The purpose of CONVENTION: To Resurrect the U.S. Constitution is to inspire Americans to implore their State Legislatures to call for a Convention under Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

The balance of government power has shifted away from the States and the people and is now entrenched in Washington. This institutional trend offends the core principles of the Constitution.

Discrete amendment of key clauses is the only permanent solution to foundational reduction of the expansive sphere of modern federal government, and enhancement of traditional State authority.

The Convention’s agenda is to recapture the original meaning and application of the Commerce Clause, General Welfare Clause and the Necessary and Proper Clause, and to reinvigorate the Tenth Amendment, the tabernacle of Federalism.

In the backdrop of American history the book analyzes the constitutionality of contemporary issues of health care reform, cap & trade, bailouts, stimulus, earmarks, state immigration laws, entitlements and judicial activism.

There is a dire need to amend the Constitution. This book is the why, the what, and the how. It is a call to action with a sample Petition & Letter to facilitate citizen and organizational initiation.

The time for an enduring solution is now. A Constitutional Convention called by 33 State Legislatures upon the petition of the people, to amend parts of the Constitution, is the antidote and the cure to an encroaching government.

The author has launched an action website and Petition to call for a Convention to amend the Constitution. He has appeared on numerous radio and talk shows throughout the U.S.
