THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Did you know that thirty-two U.S. states have recently voted in favor of having a Constitutional Convention? Did you know that approval from only two more states are needed to make this Convention become reality? Did you know that one of those states (Ohio) will be voting on the matter shortly?

Tom DeWeese, who runs the center and its education and grassroots work, told WND the possibilities stunned him when he discovered lawmakers in Ohio are considering a call for a Constitutional Convention. He explained that 32 other states already have taken that vote, and only one more would be needed to require Congress to name convention delegates who then would have more power than Congress itself....
