January 2017 Rally Day

  Convention of States Virginia

Rally for the Republic!

It's time to Rally together and urge Virginia’s Senators to vote "YES" and call for a Convention of States to reign in the federal government!

  • When:   Thursday, January 26, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. 
  • Where:  Richmond State Capitol Square, Bell Tower. 101 North 9th St, Richmond VA

All are invited!   Rally information:  www.cosaction.com/virginia

Speakers:

  • Mark Meckler, President of COSAction
  • Rita Dunaway, Constitutional Lawyer and Legislative Liaison for COSAction
  • Virginia’s House and Senate sponsors of our resolution

Now is Virginia’s time!  It is TIME for our State Legislators to use the solution the Founders gave to them to reign in our out-of-control federal government!

You know the Federal Government is on a dangerous course.  Unsustainable debt, crushing regulations on states and businesses, and over-reaching executive orders and court rulings -- it’s a sure recipe for disaster.  And their power grabs are only accelerating.  Our Founders anticipated that the federal government might one day become corrupt and exceed the bounds they established for it.   They included the solution in the Constitution -- Article V Convention of States!

Our Legislators have the ability and the obligation to rein in the federal government and restore our Republic!  They must vote YES and call for the Article V Convention of States.

Join us in Richmond for the Rally for the Republic!  Virginia’s State Legislators will vote on calling for a Convention of States in the next couple weeks.  Bring your family and friends to the Rally for the Republic! 

This summer we held the first ever simulated Convention of States!!  Check out the endorsements from Presidential candidates, constitutional scholars, organizations, and nationally recognized conservatives.
