Attention COS patriots: Georgia needs your help! Tomorrow, January 24, at 9:30am the state senate Rules Committee will hold a hearing to discuss the COS application. This is a huge step towards passing the application in Georgia, and we need to show the committee we mean business.
So heres what you can do:
If you live in Georgia, go to the meeting! It will be held at the Georgia State Capitol in hearing room #450. We need to pack the room so the senators know how many Georgians support a Convention of States.
If you cant make it to Atlanta, you can still help. Send an email voicing your support to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can type your own or simply use the sample letter below:
My name is [Your Name], and I support the Georgia State Senate resolution (SR 736) to apply for a Convention of States.
A Convention of States is the last, best chance to curb the abuses of the federal government and force Congress to be fiscally responsible. The Founders included the Convention of States option in Article V for precisely the situation in which we find ourselves today. Its our responsibility to use the tool the Founders gave us to limit the federal governments power and jurisdiction.
Georgia was the fourth state to ratify the ConstitutionI want Georgia to be the first state to save it.
Well give your letters to our team in Georgia, and theyll print them out and bring them to the hearing. We want a huge stack of letters, so get yours in ASAP.
Dont live in Georgia but want to help? No problem. You can still send us your letters voicing your support for the Georgia resolution. With letters from folks across the country, we can show the Georgia state senators this movement has nationwide support!
Sending an email takes five minutes, but those five minutes will bring us one step closer to preserving liberty in our country. Thanks for standing with us!
Article V ping!
Am I the only one who thinks a convention would be a bad idea in today’s environment? Calling a convention opens up a multitude of opportunities for mischief. The reason for calling the convention is not binding. We would more likely get a pair of amendments legalizing gay marriage and illegal aliens than anything that is helpful.
I have heard multiple arguments from proponents of this here of how they would assure that what you fear would not happen, but I am not convinced. Intentions and action are two very different things.
I just don’t see how the proponents could capture, control and keep the ‘narrative’ (and execution) of it all with the huge liberal and MSM influences that could happen. We’ve see shenanigans with McCain in WV, Romney, and in the VA race for governor. There’s just too much opportunity there to just cut to the chase and invalidate the safeguards we still have.
So I’m with you.
Tomorrow, January 24, at 9:30am
Holy short notice, batman!
Your fears are unfounded.
No, you are not the only one and the points you make need to be considered with sincerity.
The romance of a COS is alluring but it has potential to backfire.
Bookmark so I can write a letter.
how can we be sure that if this goes through and a “reset” is established, how do we know we will end up with our constitution again? What if it’s some pieced together pile of crap like Obamacare?
I’m just being the devils advocate.
It is no secret to state legislators that our nation is on a suicide track and they are subservient to Washington, DC.
I don't assume a state amendment convention will immediately solve the problems generated by liberals these past 100 hundred years. We may well be too far gone, and if that is the case there is nothing to lose. But, I am positive the framers gave us a peaceful way to fight tyranny, a method they didn't have.
The hard tyranny is here. Congress at best makes policy, while Obama and the courts make law. There is everything to fear from our runaway government. An amendment convention is our last hope.
Oh yes. I feel better now. Count me out.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Done, and done from Georgia!
I am also opposed, as long as the current gangsters are in charge. Too many crooked judges. And a crooked Justice Department. And crooks in charge of the Senate, the White House, and, I’m afraid, the House.
We’d probably end up with amendments supporting gay marriage, abortion on demand, and sharia.
How is that my good man.
We are on the brink of losing this country.
This is a last resort sort of violence.
I remember reading up on the ways the US Constitution could be amended. Among them was the Article 5 way, which has never been tried that I could find.
I realize there are a whole lot of suppositions out there about how this would work along the path to implementing what is dictated with respect to Article 5 in the Constitution, but again, has this method been used?, successfully used?, used with the intended outcome?
I also realize there is a group out there that is dedicated to it, even with the same name. But, when anyone voices any fears about outside influence, consequences, etc. all I get is “your fears are unfounded” and “that’s not what we want and we can control the process,” etc.
