They gathered at the homestead of George Washington, 15 miles from the capital city named for him. The purpose? To discuss how, safely, to revive an overlooked, but invaluable, provision in the United States Constitution to allow a supermajority of states to rein in a power-drunk federal government.
According to a press release issued after the Assemblys adjournment, They emphasized the importance of any convention being done in a way that accomplishes the will of the people while protecting the sanctity of the Constitution, as this action could ultimately lead to proposed amendments to the U.S. Constitution, as authorized under Article V. The subject matter of what those amendments would be was not discussed.

Some, especially on the left, are attempting to blame federal government dysfunction on the Constitution. An Annals of Law feature in the current New Yorker, by Jeffrey Toobin, is entitled Our Broken Constitution. Wrong. It is the federal government, not the Constitution, that is broken. The federal government has gone out of alignment with its nature as envisioned in the Constitution.
And in the Constitution itself resides the solution.
Let's get together and inform everyone we know about this bold move to save our republic. If you care, BE ACTIVE!
For those who want more this website offers numerous updates.
Spreading the word...
The Constitution gets “broken” when it is intentionally severed from its essential relationship with the principles laid down in the Declaration. This is what the Progressives always do. They want a dialogue on “the meaning of the Constituion” but they do not want to include the essential relationship of the two documents. . .any “dialogue” about the Constitution under those circumstances is seriously flawed.
This is our time ...if we take it!
At the rate Fedzilla is getting out of control, the reset button is gonna get pushed, either politically, violently, or both.
When the Amendment capping Federal Spending at 17% of GDP gets up to 25 votes, Martial Law will be declared.
Please look through the entries at the website link and realize that our time is here if we will support these courageous representatives and do more than send email Obama jokes to facebook friends.
If so the big political news of 2016 will not be about the presidential race. It will be about how nearly 100 citizen-legislators began a process that restored liberty to America. The big story is bigger than presidential politics.
The big story is Constitutional. It is a story about how liberty-minded Americans such as Sen. David Long, of Indiana, Rep. Chris Kopenga, of Wisconsin, Rep. Matt Huffman, of Ohio, Rep. Gary Banz, of Oklahoma, Sen. Caryn Tyson, of Kansas, Rep. Yvette Herrell, of New Mexico, and Sen. Kevin Lundberg, of Colorado (co-chairs of a coordinate Article V Caucus), and other state legislators such as Del. Jim LeMunyon, of Virginia, began the process of restoring liberty to our sweet land.
God bless these patriots. Also liked the mention of this...
"Two months ago, Marc Levin published a best-selling book, The Liberty Amendments, further validating the Article V process and drawing the important support of influential figures such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and, most recently, Glenn Beck."
One amendment we should have is that any rules proposed by federal agencies should be voted on by individual states, by legislatures or special votes of the people once a year.
We should have a say whether we want the sh*t sandwiches these agencies have been feeding us for decades.
How many of our freedoms have died by the death of a thousand cuts because of these special-interest controlled agencies?
You use facebook? LOL!
Sure. Someone has to keep tabs on the NSA.
One of the better and more reasoned articles on this effort. Thanks for posting it.
LOL! I thought they were keeping tabs on us.
The current administration has desensitized America to the authority of Congress or the Legislative Branch.
Truly, truly. ..The big "if". . .but we have no other choice. Yes, it could blow-up in our face, but if we just sit on the sidelines wringing our hands over fears of what could go wrong. . .we can be sure we will see the end of our Republic.
Who wrote this wholly understated, egregiously inadequate description of the wanton, deliberate destruction of the United States of America? This sounds like any, every administration since the beginning of the Republic. Why is this illegal, bastard regime being spoken of with kid gloves?
Good bye gun rights.
Thank you for supporting the republic.
