North Carolina

NC Needs your help

CALL TO ACTION

JOIN US AT THE CAPITAL TO HELP DISTRIBUTE PETITIONS TO THE HOUSE

TUESDAY MAY 16TH 10:AM     300 North Salisbury St.

We will meet on the ground level just outside the building.

 

Attention North Carolina COS supporters, we will be delivering petition lists to every member of the House on Tuesday May 16, beginning at 10:00 AM EST and need all of the help we can get.  

 

Please come to the Capital in Raleigh, 300 North Salisbury St. to help us let our Legislators know how many of their constituents support SR 36 by delivering lists of petition signers to each one.

 

 We are half way to our goal in North Carolina after passing SR 36 through the Senate a few short weeks ago but now we need to pass the House.  Now is the time.

 

Please join us in this historic effort to save our beloved Republic by asking every House member to support SR 36 and tell D.C. that we are taking our power back and putting ourselves in charge of our own destiny.  

 

 

See you then.

 

Please RSVP to this email if you can attend,

 

In liberty

 

Gary Lyons, 

Legislative Liaison 

Convention of States NC

Crunch time in North Carolina, Take Action Now

It’s down to crunch time in North Carolina.  We must have a hearing and a vote in the Senate Rules Committee before the crossover date of April 27 – or we are finished for this legislative cycle.  We need your help to make sure we are given a chance to be heard and voted on.

Your participation is critical to the success of our efforts in North Carolina.  Our children and grandchildren are counting on us to pass liberty on to them.  Don’t neglect this and don’t delay!

PLEASE, take the time to participate in this call to action.  It’s time for us to stand up and make our voices heard.  We cannot allow this effort to be stopped because one Senator doesn’t think it is important.  This is not to time to make excuses or to let someone else do the work.  YOU are needed.  Today, right now, please contact these members of the Senate Rules Committee.  Here is a suggested text that you might use to get our point across.  Please use your own words of feel free to use these; but make the call and send the email…

 

Dear Senator __________________,

As a member of the Rules Committee, I urge you to support Senate Resolution 36 (S36).  Please urge the committee leadership to give this legislation a proper hearing and vote before the crossover date.  I am counting on you to represent me and the thousands of North Carolinians who strongly support this resolution.  Thank you for your work and your support.

Your name and town

 

There you go!  Please contact ALL of these Senators.  Copy and paste the emails.  The phone calls will take about 30 seconds.  Leaving a message is fine.   Talking to someone in the office is great.  Just CALL!

And thank you.  Working together, we will get this done.  We’ve worked hard to get this far; let’s move this legislation forward.  Your calls and emails will be the difference!

Here is the list…

Teamwork, Tar Heels & Term Limits... Victory in 2017

"It is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers." Declaration of Independence

Who decides? Them? Or us?

Calling all Tar Heels.

It's a new year and a fresh chance to pass the COS resolution. 

Please join us as we take a stand for liberty. In 2017 NC will file the Article V Convention of States resolution. It is our time, and we must take advantage of it. So far, eight states have passed the COS resolution. We still need 26. And with a strategic plan in place, it is North Carolina's time to shine. HB2 and the marriage amendment are obvious talking points for NC. Also, 2nd amendment rights, Common Core, employment, voter ID laws. COS addresses these and more. 

NC will file in both houses on the same day. We need all North Carolinians support. Talk to your legislators, county commissioners, relatives, and friends. Have them sign the petition and call their representatives and senators. There's power in numbers. 

NC will take a stand and will not listen to the naysayers. We stand behind the Constitution. And not the tome that has been created by the supreme court precedents but the Constitution the Founders signed. There's a big difference.

What can you do to help?

Listen to the people around you in the grocery stores. Talk about Convention of States. Spread the word. Volunteer to be a District Captain at

Get ready for capital day. Meet us on the front steps of the capital on February 1st at 10:00 a.m. It's going to be a great year. 

The Constitution of the United States

Article V

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.
