GEORGIA FILES CONVENTION OF STATES APPLICATION

GEORGIA FILES CONVENTION OF STATES APPLICATION

Via Patriot Update-

Sounds like Georgia might be the first to pass the resolution.
Check it out:

The Georgia team is working hard, and it’s paying off. Yesterday, Senator Cecil Staton filed the Convention of States Project’s application in the Georgia Senate.The resolution currently has 22 senate sponsors, including every member of the Georgia Senate leadership team! This means we only need seven more votes for the application to pass in the Georgia Senate.

David Guldenschuh, our Legislative Liaison in Georgia, is eager to get the resolution passed by the end of the legislative session on March 16th. “The goal is to get a Rules Committee hearing on it next week and a vote the week thereafter, at which point it will cross over to the House for Committee assignment there,” said Guldenschuh.

He explains why the 1787 Constitutional Convention was not a “runaway” convention as naysayers often claim. Jacqueline Peterson, GA State Director of the COS Project hosted this event at Red, White & Brew Cafe in Cedartown GA.

  2. While I, too, have joined the COS team in Georgia, I am presently petitioning my Georgia General Assembly representatives to include the requirement that only US citizens can vote in all federal elections and to confirm the definition of an Art. II §I cl. 4 natural born citizen.

    “NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA, that the General Assembly of the State of Georgia hereby applies to Congress, under the provisions of Article V of the Constitution of the United States, for the calling of a convention of the states, limited to proposing amendments to the United States Constitution that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress, require proof of US citizenship to vote in all federal elections, and confirm the definition of an Article II “natural born citizen..”

    Secondly, I am also concerned about the apparent lack of adequate “Public Notice” being given to all the citizens of Georgia to respond to this resolution through their proper state representatives. It is my opinion every opportunity should be given to the citizens of Georgia, in the abundance of caution, so the resolution in its final form can be taken as the full expression of all the citizens of Georgia.

    This is just one more opportunity for the states to push back against the federal over reach. They are usurping the powers left to the states, and this is the method the founders gave us to hold the central government in check. We must remember, it was the states that created the federal government, not the other way around.

    • Excellent point Jack! We need to bypass the overgrown federal government. The federal bureaucracy consists of over 500 departments and agencies staffed with unelected people imposing their will on us. Obama rules by executive fiat and Congress caters more to lobbyist than we the people.

      Please stop by more often and voice your opinion. God bless.

    Actually, as I was just mentioning to Jack, in the last sentence in the first resolve clause, there might be a typo:

    “NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF GEORGIA, that the General Assembly of the State of Georgia hereby applies to Congress, under the provisions of Article V of the Constitution of the United States, for the calling of a convention of the states, limited to proposing amendments to the United States Constitution that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress.”

    “…limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress.”

    I don’t know what this means in the sentence above: “…and limit the terms of office for its officials”. Whose terms of office are they talking about here; the ‘federal government’s’, or other ‘elected’ officials?
