Subscriber Letter to State Legislator: Enforce the Constitution, Don’t Call for Convention!

The Constitution

[CAF Note: A big thank you to the subscribers who have been communicating with their state legislators to ensure they enforce the Constitution and do not vote to call for a Constitutional Convention.  I got permission to share this letter with you. Fell free to use some of the text to do the same!]

Dear [State Senator or Representative]

Thank you for your response to my comments at the listening session. I also appreciate that you took the time to either read or listen to the interview with Dr. Vieira and Catherine Austin Fitts. Your explanation of an Article V Convention is very clear and I can understand the reasons you believe there is no danger in this type of convention. As you stated in the letter, under the legislation you are advancing, it would be illegal for delegates to act outside the call for a balanced budget amendment.

Unfortunately, I do not share your confidence in the “rule of law” being followed to maintain the very narrow call you describe for an Article V Convention.

There are many books, papers and/or interviews which support this lack of confidence in the “rule of law”. I have listed just a few books if you are interested in pursuing the topic of the law being set aside.

  • Dillion Read and Aristocracy of Stock Profits – by Catherine Austin Fitts (An online book at I have included the forward to this book in this letter).
  • J.P. Madoff by Helen Davis Chaitman and Lance Gotthoffer – Helen Chaitman is an attorney who was invested with Madoff. (I have also included the Amazon description of this book in this letter).
  • Clinton Cash – by Peter Schweizer (self explanatory).
  • The Devils Chessboard – by David Talbot (A more historical picture with a wider scope).

As I presented in the listening session, even if the narrow call for an Article V Convention can be maintained, balancing a 20 trillion dollar debt without accounting for the missing assets is a disservice to the taxpayers and may even be a Material Omission. As a recap of my statement:

  • There is $11.5 trillion in missing money; these are undocumentable adjustments in federal accounts for which there was not an appropriation. (I have attached two pages with some of the links reporting missing money).
  • Assets and technology financing and developed within the “black budget’, paid for by taxpayers…but, in private hands and companies. (I have attached an article from Wired Magazine and a short article from but this can also be searched on the internet).
  • Assets acquired in foreign wars, paid for by the taxpayers, with their money and their children, but also in private hands and companies. (This information can be found on the internet or by reading books on history, particularly history after WWII. Some suggestions would be: Gold Warriors by Sterling and Peggy Seagraves and The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein).

Writing a new balanced budget amendment into the constitution appears to only address the debt and a balanced budget going forward. It does not necessarily address the complex issues involved in the missing assets, such as, where they are, can they be recovered and can they be applied to reduce the 20 trillion dollar debt. My question remains…how can a budget be balanced if we are only talking about the debt but not the missing assets?

I continue to believe that the constitution needs to be enforced rather than changed. The constitution clearly states that only monies appropriated by congress can be spent.

Thank you for your service to our state in the legislature. I believe that our state and local representatives, our local entrepreneurs, including small farmers, and vibrant local towns, villages and counties are the way forward to a prosperous future for our children and grandchildren.

Very Truly Yours,
