Rob Natelson Perverts the Necessary and Proper Clause and Thinks in Circles

In former law professor Rob Natelson’s recent paper, “No, the Necessary and Proper Clause Does NOT Empower Congress to Control an Amendments Convention”, he makes several untrue statements and commits the gross fallacy of making a circular argument which begs the question.

How our Federal Constitution ‘Secures’ our God Given Rights

Our Declaration of Independence says the Creator God endowed us with Rights, and that the purpose of government is to “secure” the Rights God gave us. What does this mean? How does a government go about “securing” God given rights?

We Don’t Need an Article V Convention to ‘Clarify’ Our Constitution!

Our Constitution is so simple that Alexander Hamilton expected us to be “enlightened enough to distinguish between a legal exercise and an illegal usurpation of authority”; and he said the people are “the natural guardians of the Constitution.” Well then, if our Constitution is something The People are expected to know and enforce; is it plausible to assert that the Representatives we send to Washington – and even supreme Court Justices – are incapable of understanding it?
