Oregon

We are gearing up for the 2017 Legislative session! Legislators are elected, committees are assigned! Swearing in is NEXT WEEK, Jan. 9th! Sen. Brian Boquist is our Chief for our COS Senate bill, for now It's LC2196! We are gearing up for Feb. 1st when the Legislative session begins!

Our Volunteers and Grassroots are the most important part of COS Oregon! Please contact the Co-State Directors (below) if you would like an update or need help getting involved!

We have grown significantly in Oregon since we began! We have a solid leadership team in place and are continuing to grow our Grassroots supporters! We are grateful for our progress in 2015 & 2016! We are on the MARCH for Liberty in 2017!

How can you help?

How can you help?

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?

Download talking points here.

Then ask them to sign the petition! (Personalized Supporter Link is below.)

 

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every Oregon state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.

It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.

Join our team as a District Captain!

 

Reach out to your state legislators? Don't know what to say?

If you'd like a Convention of States leader to attend a meeting with you and your legislator, contact your state’s legislative liaison.

Your voice is important. Make it heard by sharing Convention of States with your friends and contacts. Don't miss the chance to tell future generations that you stood strong for liberty!

Oregon Call To Action - Whisnant

whisnant.jpg

Dear Oregon Patriots,

You are our Oregon minutemen. This is our time. 2017 is our year!

Rep. Gene Whisnant (R, Sunriver) said yesterday he can’t be Chief Sponsor on our COS bill, but he will be Chief Sponsor on another Article V bill, for a Balanced Budget Amendment only.

BUT WAIT! If Washington DC is forced to Balance the Budget, how do you think they will do it?

Will they cut expenses? Dumb programs? Their salaries? NO!

They will balance the budget by RAISING TAXES ON THE BACKS OF HARDWORKING OREGONIANS AND AMERICANS!

YET, our COS proposal, with 1) fiscal restraints, 2) reduce the size and scope of the federal government and 3) term limits (not just on Congress, but on the Supreme Court, all federal courts and all federal agencies) will allow some PROPER FIXES to the U.S. Constitution that won’t be on the backs of hardworking Oregonians & Americans!

At our Simulated Convention of States at Colonial Williamsburg in September, 150 delegates from all 50 states wrote 6 amendment proposals in 2 days; what Congress has NOT done in decades! You can READ their proposed amendments here (Look for the FISCAL RESTRAINTS ideas):

OFFICIAL PROPOSALS OF THE SIMULATED CONVENTION OF STATES

Which do you think is a BETTER IDEA?

MINUTEMEN ACTIONS:

This is the Beginning of Draining the SWAMP in Oregon folks.

We must be VERY VOCAL. We must be FIRM.

We must be polite, respectful & grateful for our Legislators’ service to Oregon.

Rep. Whisnant is also an Air Force Veteran. Please thank him for that service as well.

If your legislator is a Veteran, please thank them for their service too!

 

1) Contact Rep. Gene Whisnant by phone, email, facebook, twitter, voicemail, or show up at his office. TODAY!

     Let him know what you think of this. Which Article V bill is a better idea?

     Are you Fed up with Legislators not listening to the people? Tell him that too!

     Tell him you want him to be Chief Sponsor of our House COS bill.

 

     Rep. Gene Whisnant’s Phone: 503-986-1453

     Email: Rep.GeneWhisnant@state.or.us

     Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gene.whisnant.165?fref=ts

     Phone is best. They have to answer and are paid to be polite to you.

 

2) Contact your own Oregon Legislators.

     Let them know you want THEM to sponsor our COS bill.

     Let them know you are fed up with Legislators not listening to the people!

     Lookup your Oregon legislators here: http://www.cosaction.com/lookup

 

3) Contact 1 friend, family member, neighbor or co-worker. Explain to them about COS. Explain this issue right here. Ask them to Sign the Petition and Help us with this Call To Action also! http://www.ConventionOfStates.com/?recruiters_id=1082054

4) If you are Facebook, please go to “Convention of States Oregon” and share the Call To Action post.
