Convention of states needed
Posted: Wednesday, November 5, 2014 2:00 am
Congress has become a dynastic ruling class that recognizes no limits on their authority to regulate, tax or spend, often forcing the states to relinquish their constitutional right. The executive branch is illegally issuing endless overreaching executive orders and is unwilling to secure our borders. The Supreme Court has not protected the original intent of the Constitution.
There’s only one solution to restoring government to its constitutional limitations and restoring the rights which states, communities and individuals have lost to the government leviathan is the remedy provided by the Constitution itself. It is the entire purpose of Article V. Your state senator and representative do not have a more important priority than to draw up a convention of states application to Congress.
A convention of states could propose and vote (one vote per state) on amendments to severely limit government on three fronts: Terms of office, Jurisdiction and Fiscal policies.
Everyone is invited to a Townhall on the Convention of States Nov. 13, 7 p.m., Montrose Fairgrounds, Pioneer Room (http://www.montrosecounty.net/542/Pioneer-RoomHall). Contact Jeff Hogan, the local Convention of States District Captain, at 970-417-4165,firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
