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.

Maryland Senate and House Committees Refuse to Vote on Convention of States Application!

shutterstock_189828368.jpg

Many of you took the time to call and send emails to the committee members that heard testimony on on SJ3 and HJ7.

Many of you also took time out of your day to testify before them.

Well, both of these committees refuse to vote on our Article V resolutions to limit the power of the federal government! They apparently don't care about what the people of Maryland have to say and only want to protect the Establishment in Washington D.C. Not familiar with Article V or the Convention of States Process? Check out this 3-minute video.

So what are we going to do about?

Here is the plan! We need as many of you as possible to send emails to members of both committees urging them to please vote NOW on our resolutions. We also need you to ask nicely on the Facebook pages of the committee Chairs to vote on our resolutions so their constituents can see that they are willing to listen to the people of Maryland.

 CALL TO ACTION

1. SJ3 has been heard by the Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee: Please send an email to all of the committee members at once and ask them to vote now in favor of SJ3 CLICK HERE . Here are the numbers to call the Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs Committee: 410-841-3661, 301-858-3661, or Toll-free in MD: 1-800-492-7122 ext. 3661. Please call them also!

Go to this Facebook Post on Chairman Joan Carter-Conway's Facebook page and ask her to have her committee vote to pass SJ3 in order to stop the overreach of the federal government and protect the liberty of the citizens of Maryland. Be polite and remind her that SJ3 can help restore the balance of power between the states and the federal government.

 

2. HJ7 has been heard by the House Rules and Executive Nominations Committee: Please send an email to all of the committee members at once and ask them to vote now in favor of HJ7 CLICK HERE . Here are the numbers to call the House Rules and Executive Nominations Committee: 410-841-3916 or Toll-free in MD 1-800-492-7122 ext. 3916 Please call them also!

Go to this Facebook Post on Chairman Anne Healey's Facebook page and ask her to have her committee vote on HJ7 to stop the overreach of the federal government and protect the liberty of the citizens of Maryland. Be polite and remind her that HJ7 can help restore the balance of power between the states and the federal government.

The Chairs of these committees and all of the members need to hear from us now! Please ask them to do the honorable thing and vote on our two resolutions to limit the power of the federal government. 

Thank you!

They heard our testimony on Friday and now they plan to vote on HJ7 in 48 hours!

Your messages to the committee are working!

Please contact them one more time before they vote on Monday!

URGENT CALL TO ACTION!  The House Rules and Executive Nominations Committee plans to vote on our Convention of States Application HJ7 on Monday, March 13th at 7:45PM!  

Please CALL AND EMAIL the committee over the weekend or by Monday morning to let them know you want them to favorably pass HJ7.

Not familiar with Article V or the Convention of States Process? Check out this 3-minute video.

CALL TO ACTION: 

1. CALL 410-841-3916 or Toll-free in MD 1-800-492-7122 ext. 3916 and leave a message requesting that the members of the House Rules and Executive Nominations Committee vote in support of HJ7. When leaving your message remember to provide your name, address and a short message why you want them to pass HJ7. Also, request that your message be delivered to all 24 members of the committee.

Here are some reasons why HJ7 must pass:

Because it’s time to ensure that no President can exceed his/her constitutional authority through overreaching executive orders. 

Because decisions for Maryland should be made in Maryland. 

Because the people of Maryland should be free to decide on policies and curriculum for our schools without interference from the federal government. 

Because D.C. has proven itself irresponsible. 

Because decisions made in D.C. are decisions influenced more by lobbyists and special interests than by the people. 

Because a power-hungry federal government will never restrain its own power. 

Because Americans were never meant to be ruled by unelected bureaucrats in a distant capital. 

Because the power cabal in Washington, D.C. are out of touch with ordinary Americans. 

Because the states, acting together, are the last hope for restoring the Republic. 

Because the Article V Convention for Proposing Amendments was given to us for such a time as this. 

Because D.C. has proven itself irresponsible.

Because decisions made in D.C. are decisions influenced more by lobbyists and special interests than by the people.  

2. EMAIL ALL OF THE MEMBERS WITH ONE BUTTON!  In your subject line state that you support HJ7 and remember to add your name/address to your message. Write a brief message why you support HJ7 and make it personal as to why you want your state legislators to support it.
