The Founding Fathers knew there would be corruption in the federal government, and they understood the possibility of the federal government centralizing power and becoming irresponsible. For these reasons, they created a process that would allow for amending the Constitution and for the states to reign in the federal government. And that process is a convention for proposing amendments.
Meet the NC legislators and learn how you can help bring some power back to North Carolina just as the Founders intended.

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.

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…

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.
