This is a Republic, not a Democracy. Let's keep it that way!

Oppose A Constitutional Convention Now

with 2 comments


URGENT CON-CON ACTION NEEDED NOW!
There will be a hearing of the Pennsylvania Senate State Govt Committee addressing all Senate applications for an Article V convention on Wed. Oct. 17th at 9:00 am (Eastern).
Convention of States Project (COSP) has scheduled a rally and lobby day for the occasion at Noon with former US Senator Tom Coburn. Coburn is on the COSP payroll for $240,000 in 2016 alone!
We need 2 things from you to help preserve the Constitution:
1. We need you to use the following email lists to send a note to all the Senators in PA expressing your desire that they vote NO on all 3 Senate Bills and all other bills which apply to Congress for an Article V convention.
 

It need not be complicated or long-winded. Please let all 49 PA Senators know that we can lose our Constitution at a convention and ask them to VOTE “No!” on SR133 (HR187); SR254 (HR357); SR134; and any other applications from Pennsylvania asking Congress to call an Art. V convention.
 
 
2. In addition to the Senators above, please send (separate) the same letter, this time addressed to the Senate State Government Committee, to Michaele Totino, Counsel and Committee Executive Director; and refer to written testimony against SR133, SR134 and SR254 for the Oct. 17th hearing on the subject line:  mtotino@pasen.govPlease send to Michaele by Noon (Eastern) on Monday Oct. 15th so she can post your testimony online and distribute it to committee members with their packets.
 
Thank you for defending our Constitution!
 
 
Here are the bills we oppose in the PA Senate:
SR133 (HR187) (COSP); SR254 (HR357) (WP);  SR134 (Regulation Freedom);
HERE  is a flyer explaining why Pennsylvania legislators should defeat all applications for an A5C.
HERE  is the Brilliant Men flyer.
HERE  is a political cartoon where one can grasp a very complicated issue at a glance.
This ARTICLE explains why states can’t control Delegates to an Article V convention.
HERE is a 2-minute video explaining that Delegates will run the convention, and we don’t know who they’ll be!
