While this legislative session has passed, we as conservatives need to be preparing not only ourselves but our elected representatives for the next chance to pass these common sense Amendments.
So what does this process entail and what are the Liberty Amendments? The Liberty Amendments are a series of Amendments that would be passed through each State’s House of Representatives. Once they are passed, they would be sent, along with delegates, to a Convention of the States for Amendment ratification. If three fourths of the States vote during that process to ratify these Amendments then they would turn into Constitutional Amendments and begin the process of returning the balance of power from Washington DC back to the States and ultimately “We the People”!
While technically there are more nuts and bolts to this process, the main point is that this process is outlined in our Constitution under Article 5 and our elected State Representatives are the key to making this a reality. So we need to pressure them to support this process early and often.
Let me make the point, this is NOT just a republican “pet project”. These Amendments cross party lines. Washington is not going to fix the budget problems in Virginia or in any other State and for that matter, they aren’t going to fix any other problem unless it solidifies power in Washington. So it’s time we stand up and fix Washington.
These 11 Amendments are as Mark Levin presented them in his book “The Liberty Amendments” and I believe them to be the most effective way to reach many voters from all walks of life… because they are common sense… Everyone, but Nancy Pelosi and the Leadership in the Democrat Party believes there is a problem…
Here is the solution:
Each of these Amendments address, at some point, a failure of government that arises in every conversation between neighbors as soon as the conversation turns to government. If I had a nickel for every person that said to me “Those Senators have been there too long” or “I can’t believe how expensive these taxes are”, I would be a rich man.
So the next time that you hear your neighbor complain about a various aspect of government, tell them… There is a solution, The Liberty Amendments! Then do the next step and both of you call your Representatives and let them know that you are going to be watching their response on this issue!
