More important citizen action requests

Winter is when farmers get to do something other than farm. What better way to sow seeds than to get involved in helping shape our future through legislation?

Over the past several years, a hardy group of people have been working to call a Convention of the States, and demand an amendment to our US Constitution. I’ve joined this group and you’ll be hearing quite a bit through our blog, as all four of us are in agreement about the need for this convention.

Here’s the funny thing… politically, we’re miles apart. So, as you can see, it’s not about politics, it’s about our future!

Here’s what it’s all about.

We’re a grass-roots organization which, when fully operational, and ready, will have our State Legislators on board through joint resolutions. Our singular intention is to call for a Convention of the States to take action on limiting the reach and power of our Federal Government. Article V our our Constitution gives our State Leaders this power.

Here’s what you can do to help us.

Go to the Convention of States website and sign the petition. It matters not where you are in our great country, just read it, and sign it truthfully with your full address. The reason they need your full address is to determine your State Legislative District… you know, the local folks you vote for to send to your State Legislators.

Once you’ve done that…

Connect with these folks through their Facebook page, so you may have access to the latest, straightest, information.

Pretty simple.

Trust me, if you care for our great country, and  the direction it’s going, you’ll want to help. Your signature is a big help. Your legislator actually receives this petition, signature by signature. If you want to do more, be a volunteer. You can do like I am, writing in our blog, making Facebook posts, Twitter posts, etc. Or, if you have more time and like to talk with folks, go out and talk to your friends, have them over for a potluck… just talk about it. You’ll be surprised how many people feel like we, the people have no power.

They’re half right… individually, we don’t have much power. But… Collectively, we have an incredible amount of power!

Here’s the link if you’d like to volunteer. I’d appreciate it if  you let me know you did this. We may be able to work together.

Sign me up to volunteer!
