This resolution was passed in the Senate March 12, sent to the House on the 19th, has already had two readings and is now in the House Judiciary Committee. The Sponsors are Senator Steve Russell (R) and Representative Leslie Osborn (R), both most probably members of ALEC.
If it passes out of the committee, they’ll do the 3rd reading, and take a vote. It could happen in the blink of an eye!
We ALL need to get on this NOW! First thing Monday morning!
Many say (or may think), “What’s the difference? They’re ignoring the Constitution anyway.” Proponents of a Con-Con – Internationalist elite, big bankers, corporations, etc. – have been trying to get this done for over 50 years, that’s why! They have a new Constitution drafted, waiting in the wings. No states, just 10 regions, with overseers; no gun rights, no free speech. Welcome to the New World Order! Check out the Constitution for the New States of America . You’ll see why this is so urgent.
Let’s focus on calls to:
Committee Chair, Fred Jordon (R)
Vice Chair, Colby Schwartz (R)
MESSAGE: Please table SB1903, calling for an Article V Amendments Convention. Your good intention to “limit the convention to a specific purpose” is powerless. There is no safeguard from a runaway convention, regardless of what you’ve been told.
Article V of the Constitution does not provide any language to limit an “Amendment Convention” or its power. There are no rules or restrictions or instructions in Article V.
Ron Natelson, who wrote the ALEC Handbook knows that. He admitted on page 2 of his book “Amending the Constitution by Convention” that:
“Of course, abuses of the Article V Amendment processes are possible”.
The 43-page ALEC Handbook, telling legislators why and how they must apply to Congress for an Amendment Convention, added a disclaimer; it states:
“Nothing in this Handbook should be construed as legal advice; seek competent counsel in your own state.”
“…there is no effective way to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention. The Convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda.
“Congress might try to limit the Convention to one amendment or to one issue, but there is no way to assure that the Convention would obey.
“After a Convention is convened, it will be too late to stop the Convention if we don’t like its agenda. The meeting in 1787 ignored the limit placed by the Confederation Congress, ‘for the sole and express purpose.'”
Question: How can you expect the government to pay any attention to an amendment when they’re trampling the whole Constitution right now? Please don’t risk our Constitution.
Those who can or will, please call THEN CALL AGAIN 2 OR 3 TIMES.
