Virginia Files Application for Convention of the States

We need more states to follow Virginia's lead on this, and a prayer it will be enough states to be able to ask for amendments to the constitution to reign in this administration and any other administration that should attempt to take our rights and our states rights and to get rid of the mess in DC, perhaps change the tax system to a fair tax and several other things like a balanced budget amendment.  We need to pare the federal government back to what the founders meant for them to do , and put back into the hands of the state governments those things that were meant to be handled by the states.
Right now, our state has bills requesting a constitutional convention which is not good, but may not realize the difference (although I would like to hope the understand what they are asking for can be hijacked by the left and our constitution forever changed in a way that will not be good for any of us...............we certainly need to be on top of what Florida is doing.  The Florida house has passed a bill but the senate has not)

Virginia Files Application for COS

The Convention of States Project is pleased to announce that states are now beginning to pre-file applications to call a Convention of States for the purpose of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

Virginia was the first state to call the Philadelphia Convention of 1787.  Once again, the historic state is standing up to defend the rights of the American people.  With several states soon to follow, Virginia recently claimed the title of first to pre-file an application to call a Convention of States.

Del. Scott Lingamfelter (R-31) is leading the effort in Virginia, along with Del. Jim LeMunyon (R-67) who has been deeply involved in the process.  After meeting with COS Leader, Michael Farris, Del. Lingamfelter agreed to push the application through as the prime sponsor during Virginia’s 2014 legislative session.

“Legislators are concerned with what’s going on. They are excited to see what’s happening, and want to take part,”  said Mark Wohlschlegel, COS Executive Director.

Four additional states are expected to follow Virginia’s lead and pre-file applications in anticipation of the upcoming 2014 legislative season.
