|Hi Louisiana Friend!
With your help, Louisiana could become the fifth state to apply for an Article V Convention to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which will dramatically restrain the out-of-control executive, legislative and judicial branches of central government and re-align them with the Constitution.
A few weeks ago, the Louisiana House passed HCR 2, the Convention of States Project Article V application that would let Louisiana join the other states that are going to use the founders’ tool to rein in our out of control federal government.
Since that time we have run into some unexpected trouble in the Senate.
While we are attempting to restore our God-given rights and our Constitution, some are looking to sabotage those efforts.
Some Senate Democrats, including Senator Jean-Paul Morrell, have successfully pressured the Senate leadership to assign HCR2 to the wrong committee in order to kill the bill.
By the rules of the Louisiana Senate our resolution is supposed to be assigned to Senate and Governmental Affairs. Instead, HCR2 has been assigned to Judiciary B; a committee deliberately designed to kill legislation Senate Democrats do not like.
Why are they doing this? Because they want to keep the status quo of an out of control Washington D.C. This is a pathetic attempt by some Senate Democrats to change the rules in the middle of the process.
This is why we need YOU right now to call AND email YOUR SENATOR and tell them you want the Senate to PASS HCR2.
Some ideas for how to communicate with your Senator: Hi, my name is [your name] and I am a constituent of Senator [name]. I would like Senator [name] to urge the rest of the Senate to pass HCR2, the Convention of States resolution. It has been intentionally assigned to the wrong committee by some members of the Senate in order to make sure the bill does not pass. An Article V Convention of States is vital to restoring limited constitutional government at the federal level and I urge Senator [name] to take a stand against the corruption that is taking place in the Louisiana Senate and to take a stand for the U.S. Constitution and to urge the Senate pass HCR2.
Here is a letter I just finished today, to summarize the incredible significance of asking our state legislators to apply for an Article V Convention.
Thank you for supporting this movement to restore Constitutionalism, sponsored by the Citizens for Self Government.
Let me know if you have any questions and if you’d like an extensive list of Article V videos and resources available online (all with hyperlinks) or a list of rebuttals to supposed arguments against COS.
I’d love to hear from you!
Thank you so much, and God bless you!
