Mark Levin posted the following on his Facebook page over the weekend. Please share it with your friends!
I am fed up with the lies and dishonest tactics of the opponents of the Article V Convention of the States process. They've reached a new level of deceit in Virginia, where a vote is taking place on Wednesday. Rather than uphold the Constitution and promote federalism and state authority to address the growing tyranny of the federal government, people like State Senator Dick Black and his John Birch Society buddies are resorting to outright deceit to scare and pressure members of the Virginia Assembly to vote against it.
State Delegate Scott Lingamfelter, a leading advocate of the Article V process, had to send out a letter this afternoon to confront these lies. He has included the point-by-point refutation by my good friend Mike Farris. Please read the information and, if you are a resident of Virginia, contact your state delegate and state senator and tell them to VOTE YES!
Here's State Delegate Scott Lingamfelter's letter:
I am sorry for the length of this, but it's really important.
For those of you who are in support of an Article V Convention of the States, please read this important rebuttal by Michael Farris to Senator Dick Black's email sent yesterday that is, I am sad to say, utterly untrue.
First, many of you know that I am the Chief Patron of this effort (HJ497) in the House of Delegates.
Those who are opposed to the states coming together to rein in Federal power have panicked, because we are on the verge of victory. They are putting out blatant distortions to make people and their Delegates fearful. Consider this:the following conservatives SUPPORT a convention of the states:
Ken Cuccinelli, Mat Staver,Governor Bobby Jindal, Randy Barnett, Sarah Palin, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck,David Barton, Colonel Allen West, Senator Ron Johnson, Retired Senator TomCoburn, and countless other conservative leaders. And we are joined by very brave Delegates in the House including Delegates Anderson, Morris, Ware, Berg, Bloxom, Cole, Cox, Edmunds, Fowler, Garrett, Greason, Head, Jones, LaRock, Massie, O'Bannon, Peace, Poindexter, Webert and Wilt. They have the courage to take a stand and I hope you will also. Others are signing on too as they come to realize that we must act now.
Do you think these conservative leaders are trying to scare you? No, they are conservative leaders and they have the courage to stand up to Federal overreach and not cower to the fear tactics of the John Birch Society.
Second, there is an utter lie being circulated that the NRA opposes the Convention of the States. The NRA has NOT taken a position and in fact their chief Counsel supports our effort. So let's be straight. Lies to scare folks won't work. Please call your delegate and senator this weekend, and tell them that this week when this comes up for a vote, to please act boldly and support HJ 497 and SJ269, calling for a Convention of the States.
