Skip to comments.Mark Levin Show: David Long, President of Indiana State Senate
Posted on 11/13/2013 5:45:31 PM PST by SC_Pete
Mark Levin is interviewing David Long, President of the Indiana State Senate. Long is organizing an Article V. meeting at Mt. Vernon. He says he has 26 states committed already to come to the meeting. When the LEFT discover this is really happening, they will go ballistic. I hope the legislatures are ready for the war that will ensue.
Indiana passed a law requiring any delegate must follow rules set by the state, otherwise it is a felony. THERE WILL BE NO RUNAWAY CONVENTION.
Long says that he will not be satisfied in just threatening a convention--but it needs to implemented.
This is HUGE!!!! the momentum is building.
Here's another article about this:

Article V ping!
Indiana State Legislature Working Towards a Convention of States
Thanks for the help. Long said that he had 26 states omitted but many more have contacted him and asked for more info. There is tremendous interest and he expects almost all states to come.
This is primarily an education and planning exercise, so the more, the merrier.
The amendatory process under Article V consists of three steps: Proposal, Disposal, and Ratification.
There are two ways to propose an amendment to the Constitution.
Article V gives Congress and an Amendments Convention exactly the same power to propose amendments, no more and no less.
Once Congress, or an Amendments Convention, proposes amendments, Congress must decide whether the states will ratify by the:
The State Ratifying Convention Method has only been used twice: once to ratify the Constitution, and once to ratify the 21st Amendment repealing Prohibition.
Depending upon which ratification method is chosen by Congress, either the state legislatures vote up-or-down on the proposed amendment, or the voters elect a state ratifying convention to vote up-or-down. If three-quarters of the states vote to ratify, the amendment becomes part of the Constitution.
Thanks. I forgot to mention the meeting is on December 7th—the day Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution. What a day to have a meeting at Mount Vernon.
Long said the interest is tremendous. Besides the 26 states already committed, the inquiries are coming in from all over.
Convention of States - Mount Vernon - December 7th, 2013.
Representatives from 26 states have already committed to attend.
If 8 more commit to show up, the remaining 16 will scurry to attend
so as not to be left out.
I've been working toward this since 1998, and it looks like a president and Congress have so totally trashed the Constitution to finally galvanize the states into taking action.
That is awesome. I think with the Obamacare and the crap Obama and his minions are trying to force states to do I think people are gradually waking up. God I hope. God Bless Mark Levin and this Senator who supports his ideals.
I wish I had figures it out that long ago. I have long been a proponent of term limits—but recognized that career politicians will never truncate their own careers. Article V.is the only solution.
Post #9 gives you the details. This meeting will provide a chance for people to plan, and that’s 50% of the battle.
Obama’s assault on our Republic has awoken the Sleeping Giant—and we are ready to take our country back.
this made my night. It’s happening faster than expected. “The Liberty Amendments” is the modern day “The American Crisis”
I(as per usual)was listening(WABC)!This is HUGE!!They are meeting at Mount Vernon on Pearl Harbor Day!!!GOD Bless Them and GOD Bless The United States of America!!!
It’s also the date when Delaware ratified—The First State. It is historic.
Long has been working on this for years. He is ahead of the curve. God bless the Hoosier state!
that explains why this is happening faster than expected. Long has been doing his networking.
This will be interesting.
Here’s the Indiana law describing duties of Article V convention delegates:
And here’s the Indiana law describing method of selecting delegates to Article V convention
Long is sharing these laws as examples with the other states.
God’s speed to Long, Pence and co.
I heard this today and I am jazzed. I’m taking it to my conservative state senator right away to urge her to attend the Mt. Vernon conference.
You might wish to check out the sample letter to legislators at conventionofstates.com. It’s under the toolkit bar.
I wonder where Congress will schedule the eventual Constitutional Convention. To provide sufficient security I propose:
FAIRBANKS, ALASKA IN FEBRUARY!!
The LEFTIST shenanigans and protests would be rather muted. That would allow for a “Meager Man March”, “Occupy a Snowball’s Chance in Hell”, and a “Teamsters Bowling Tourney”.
I hope they all realize how dangerous this is. When the LEFT realizes this is real, they will react in the extreme. In another post, I humorously suggested that Congress should schedule the CON-CON for Fairbanks Alaska in February 2014. Actually, that may be the only place where it can be held peacefully.
yup. the left has always been in love with violence.
