Stand Firm on Article V  Everyone is Listening

 2/2/2015

Good afternoon Texans. I want to share with you some great news, this weekend major conservative leaders, including former Gov. Sarah Palin, Mark Levin, former Virginia Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, former Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn and Bristol Palin, have come out in support of Virginia legislators preparing to vote this week on HJ 497, HJ 499 and SJ 269 to pass their Article V application in favor of reining in Washington, DC. Here are the links to posts that you will want to Tweet out and share on your Facebook home page:

Bristol Palin: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/2015/01/contact-these-virginia-legislators-now-to-support-conventionofstates-and-save-america/

Thousands of petitions have been signed and mailed to legislators all over the nation, including Texas. 

Many of you have received multiple emails from the John Birch Society, Eagle Forum, and a gun group making demonstrably false claims in order to incite a panic and spread fear. Here is the link to Michael Farris' article on the Convention of States news page to correct the misinformation.

You are seeing this panic because we are on the verge of VICTORY. You are making the case to legislators that Article V is the solution to the growing federal encroachment on every aspect of our daily lives. YOUR voices are being heard. We must remind our Texas legislators that passing Article V legislation is the only way for Americans to rein in those on Capitol Hill and get back to common sense, Constitutional governance in the country.

Consider the following conservatives SUPPORT a convention of the states:

Ken Cuccinelli, Mat Staver, Governor Bobby Jindal, Randy Barnett, Sarah Palin, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, David Barton, Rick Green, Colonel Allen West, Mike Huckabee, Senator Ron Johnson, Retired Senator Tom Coburn, and countless other conservative leaders. They have the courage to take a stand and I hope you will also.  Others are signing on too as they come to realize that we must act now. 

Do you think these conservative leaders are trying to scare you?  No, they have the courage to stand up to Federal overreach and not cower to the fear tactics of the John Birch Society, Eagle Forum or any other so-called conservative organization.

February is the month of the birthdays of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. We must remember their courage and leadership and stand up to those seeking to serve self-interests instead of the People.

This week you need to: call or email your legislator telling him/her to stand strong and not cave in to panic and lies by these other groups; and pray for Virginia and our sister states this week (Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming).

In liberty,
