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?

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!
