The Convention of States Project is Here!

I couldn't find a group on this, so I'm starting one. Our founding fathers put Article 5 of the Constitution in place for we, the people, to use for such a time as this to call the states together for a convention to propose amendments to the Constitution solely for the purpose of reigning in the powers of the federal government. It is a big project that needs everyone on board, but it will put the power back into the people's hands and rid our country of this tyranny! Who's with us?

One Last Push for the Virginia House

The Cause Advances in the Commonwealth of Virginia!

The Convention of States Resolution, sponsored in Virginia by Delegate Scott Lingamfelter, passed the Rules Committee in the Virginia House of Delegates today by a bipartisan vote of 8-7.  In a packed hearing conducted in the Speaker of the House’s Conference Room, Dr. Michael Farris presented compelling testimony which included a brief history lesson to dispel the myth that our Constitution was the illegitimate result of a “runaway convention,” and informed the Committee members of the historical precedents that provide protocol for interstate conventions.  Dr. Farris reminded the Committee that Virginia’s General Assembly issued the very first call for an Article V Convention in 1788, which it referred to as a “convention of the States,” for the purpose of adopting a Bill of Rights.

Delegate Lingamfelter’s Resolution is expected to be considered by the full House early next week (probably Tuesday), and we need your help!  Follow this link to find the contact information for your Virginia House delegate and give him or her a call.  Every call counts, so pick up your phone and make a difference!

Do we really think The Constitution is America's Problem, or is the lack of our leaders to adher to it as intended? To restrain government!!!

There is a risk of opening up our documents for Change... I don't think it's a good idea...

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
