Tennessee

Status and Update

The great state of Tennessee has officially passed the Convention of States resolution to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose term limits on its officials, and create fiscal restraints. We are now the fifth state to pass the resolution, joining Georgia, Florida, Alaska, and Alabama.

Our volunteers worked long and hard for this day. Liberty and self governance, the rule of law, and our Founders' vision for a civil path to put an out of control federal government back into their box has won the day! Our hard work has just begun, but thanks to our Founders who were willing to cross an ice-choked river in the dead of night, march 5 miles with blood soaked cloth wrapping bare feet, engage the most powerful mercenary army on the face of the earth, we don't have to. We just need the courage of our Founders and not the timidity of serfs.

Let us revel in this victory today! For tomorrow we must continue our march.

ON TO THE NEXT BATTLE!

Part 1 – The time to act is now!

---------------------------------------------

Subject: TN COSP – Proposed FCL Part 1: How You Can Literally Make History – Now and Later

 

YOU can make history both now and during an Article V Convention.

 

You can make history now by ensuring that Tennessee passes the most comprehensive Faithful Commissioner Law in the country – and, by doing so, ensure that YOU can make history during the Article V convention process. Imagine it: YOU may be the person who proposes the 28th amendment!

 

Unfortunately, the current TN Article V law does not guarantee you a say in the process. YOU should be guaranteed a say in the qualifications of a commissioner. YOU should be guaranteed the opportunity to apply to be a commissioner. YOU should be guaranteed the chance to propose amendments to be considered at the convention. YOU should be guaranteed a say in which amendments are supported by Tennessee’s commissioners at the convention. YOU should be guaranteed a say whether the amendments proposed at the convention should be ratified.
