Sarah Palin posted the following on her Facebook page on April 22:
There was good news this week for grassroots patriots working to bring about a Convention of the States for the reasons outlined in Mark Levin’s book “The Liberty Amendments” because this is the tool the Constitution gives us to rein in our out-of-control federal government via a process to amend the Constitution to include things like a federal balanced budget amendment, etc. This week the Alaska and Florida state legislatures passed bills in favor of the Convention of States. It’s already passed in Georgia and Alabama; and it’s in the process in Missouri, South Carolina, and Arizona.
But in Arizona there is only one man standing in the way. Even though the Arizona House overwhelmingly passed the measure, there is one lone Republican state senator named Andy Biggs who is blocking the vote. Mr. Biggs is the Arizona State Senate President, and he has used his power to block the bill from coming to a vote. Unless he budges, the session will run out, and the bill will actually die this year after thousands of hours of grassroots work and effort. Make no mistake, if that happens, these grassroots patriots will start over again next year and will continue as long as it takes. But I encourage everyone in Arizona to call this state senator and voice your objections to these Harry Reid-like tactics. Tell him to allow this bill to come to a vote, and from now on, please only elect local leaders who support this effort.
