We need your help in trying to stop the Convention of States Application filing in Georgia. This application will be heard in the Rules Committee by next week. Time is short, so we need everyone to call all of the members of the Rules Committee starting immediately. We have included the names of the members of the Georgia Rules Committee and their contact information (below). Make sure you call and send each of the members on the Rules Committee an email telling them to vote “NO” on the Convention of States Application. The evidence against having a convention or Convention of States is shown in red below with a link to the pdf file.
REMEMBER: The U.S. Congress decides the mode of ratification. The state legislators can be circumvented if the Congress calls for ratifying conventions. For the evidence showing the inability of the States to limit an Article V Convention, click on the following link.
Background Info: Yesterday, Senator Cecil Staton filed the Convention of States Project’s application in the Georgia Senate. We’re going to have to work fast and make many, MANY calls and send many emails to GET THIS STOPPED! It’s our understanding that this will go before the Senate very soon!
Currently, the resolution has 22 senate sponsors, including every member of the Georgia Senate leadership team. This means they only need seven more votes for the application to pass in the Georgia Senate.
AGAIN, we MUST make calls and send emails IMMEDIATELY to stop this! For several years, we have been emailing you many warnings about the dangers of a Constitutional Convention (Convention of States) a.k.a. Article V Amendment Convention. The most recent was sent out on January 6, 2014 entitled “Propaganda & Article V”. NOW is the time to take action!
Make sure you call and send each of the members on the Rules Committee an email telling them to vote “NO” on the Convention of States Application.
