WE THE PEOPLE-LONGVIEW
Monday, May 5, 2014
NEW MONTHLY MEETING LOCATION:
LONGVIEW FIRST CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE – 2601 H.G. Mosley Pkwy, Longview
Guest Speaker: Mr. Art Bedford
TOPIC: Convention of States Project
Purpose: The Convention of States (COS) Project was founded by Citizens for Self Governance for the purpose of stopping the runaway power of the federal government. We believe Washington, D.C., is broken and will not fix itself. The federal government is spending this country into the ground, seizing power from the states and taking liberty from the people.
We have a solution that is as big as the problem.
Goal: The COS Project seeks to urge and empower state legislators to call a convention of states. The delegates at such a convention would have the power to propose amendments to the Constitution that would curb the abuses of the federal government. Article V of the Constitution gives them this power; the COS Project will give them an avenue through which they can use it.
Plan: COS’s plan is twofold
1. We want to call a convention for a particular subject rather than a particular amendment. Instead of calling a convention for a balanced budget amendment (though we are entirely supportive of such an amendment), we want to call a convention for the following purpose: Limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.
2. We believe the grassroots is the key to calling a successful convention. We would like to build a political operation in a minimum of 40 states, getting 100 people to volunteer in at least 75% of the state legislative districts. Only through the support of the American people will this project have a chance to succeed.
Although Citizens for Self Governance began the Convention of States Projects independently, their plan is a near-perfect match with Mark Levin’s bestselling book, The Liberty Amendments.
