Maryland Action Prompt

The grassroots are the key to victory -- high numbers ensure success. So are you ready to talk to your friends about the Convention of States Project?

The Convention of States Project is the most important movement in the United States since the original United States Constitution was proposed. This is a bold statement, but when one considers the significance of what the objectives are of the Convention of States, it is absolutely accurate. The purpose of the proposed Convention of States is exclusively to re-establish and unambiguously define the limited role of the federal government as intended in the Constitution. All three branches of the federal government have steadily expanded their powers beyond the limits set in the Constitution and they show no intent of correcting themselves.  Therefore, once again American patriots are coming forward to protect the liberties and freedoms that our founding fathers and subsequent generations have fought and died to defend.

Many people throughout the country and here in Maryland are frustrated with Washington and fearful of the path our country is taking. Democrats and Republicans alike have realized that the political class in Washington is no longer responsive to its constituents, but rather to large corporate donors and special interest lobbyists.  In poll after poll, the approval rating for Congress is dismal, yet the politicians keep getting re-elected with the support of their respective party leadership and large campaign donors. Marylanders should have more influence over the decisions made that directly affect our state. The Convention of States under Article V would allow Marylanders to regain their voice in the decisions which affect us.

Senator Gail Bates and Delegate Tony McConkey Sponsor Convention of States Application!

1198-1-2577b.jpg1198-1-196c.jpg

It's official! Senator Gail Bates and Delegate Tony McConkey have committed to sponsoring the Convention of States Project application in Maryland during the 2017 legislative session!

This means that our Maryland legislators will have the opportunity to join their colleagues from sister states who have already passed applications for a state-led convention to propose constitutional amendments that will restrict federal power and restore power to the states.

Please take a moment to thank both of them for being true patriots by leading this historic effort.

Senator Gail Bates (410) 841-3671 email: gail.bates@senate.state.md.us

Delegate Tony McConkey (410) 841-3406                       email: tony.mcconkey@house.state.md.us

And stay tuned! We will need to do our part as the grassroots to support Senator Gail Bates’ efforts by making phone calls and sending e-mails at key points in the legislative process. Thank you for standing shoulder to shoulder with me as we do our part to restore real self-governance in America.

Create a Buzz About the Convention of States

We Need to Get People Talking about Convention of States in Maryland

 

Right now, we have two joint resolutions that were introduced into the Maryland General Assembly: SJ4 in the Senate and HJ3 in the House of Delegates.  SJ4 went to the Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee on February 18th and HJ3 went to the Rules and Executive Nominations Committee on February 29th.

Unfortunately, both resolutions seem unlikely to be voted on by their respective committees.  That is why we need your help.  Recently, we have asked the Convention of States supporters to call, write, and visit their legislators to show support for these resolutions.  Now we are asking that all patriots who support these resolutions help us create a popular surge of support by writing letters to the editor of the local papers and calling in to the local morning radio talk programs to discuss how important these resolutions are to each individual, our state, and the nation. 

It is our hope that by writing letters to the editor and calling into radio programs it will create a buzz in the media and draw attention to these two resolutions.  We want to create excitement and spread the word about the Convention of States effort in Maryland.

Please help us spread the word.

Here are links to Maryland newspapers.  Please keep in mind that letters to the editor are generally kept to under 250 words: http://www.usnpl.com/mdnews.php.

You can find local Washington Metro radio stations here: http://www.ontheradio.net/metro/washington_dc.aspx.
