It Continues: Arizona’s House Demands a “Convention of the States” to Fight Obama
The uprising continues to gain steam. : Now, Arizona’s calling for an Article 5 convention:
Convention of States: reports:
: “We can’t continue to tinker around the edges of the problem,” : said Yale Wishnick, : the state director for the Arizona Convention of States Project. : “It’s time to support a real, : effective means to stop the power-hungry federal government, : and Arizona House representatives have done that today. : By passing HCR 2027, : we’re one step closer to halting the massive federal bureaucracy and allowing families and individuals the opportunity to control their own lives.”
“Now is the time for bold steps by our state leaders in the Arizona senate,” : Wishnick continued. : “Arizona state senators have an opportunity to restore our personal freedom and economic liberty by supporting HCR 2027.”
An Article V Convention of the States would seek to add amendments to the Constitution, like a Balanced Budget Amendment or Term Limits, among other ideas, provided they get ratification of 3/4 of the states.
I just posted a press release over at The Missouri Torch regarding the Missouri Speaker of the House’s call for an Article 5 convention in order to pass a balanced budget amendment:
“I proudly join my colleagues from Missouri and other states across the nation to Demand Balance Now! At the state level we know how to tighten our belts and live within our means just like American families do each day all across this country. It is time for the bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. to take a page from the state playbook by balancing the budget and working to pull our nation out of a $17 trillion hole,” said Jones, R-Eureka. “I am proud to support the SGLF’s citizen pledge to support a limited Article V Convention to enact a Balanced Budget Amendment.: I encourage everyone to sign the pledge and stand with me, for the sake of our children’s future.”
The uprising begins.
