Convention of the States

This group is for discussion of the Convention of the States, Article V of the Constitution, advanced in the Mark Levin book, The Liberty Amendment.

Recommended reading, but not easy reading.  This concept is very thoughtfully presented and it makes clear that it is up to we, the people, to bring America back to her founding principles.  This is a good way to get that under way.

Citizens for Self Governance

YOU can help in forming a Convention of States

Ultimately, the success of the Article V depends on the citizens of the United States.  Volunteers will be the engine that drives this project.  If Americans are willing to sacrifice their time and energy, there is still time to halt the tyrannical abuses of the federal government. 

Interested individuals are encouraged to join our growing grassroots movement by signing up on the Take Action page. There, individuals can pledge to contact their legislators and will be notified when important volunteer opportunities arise. These opportunities include: 

  1. Volunteering to contact your legislators to support a Convention of the States

  2. Volunteering to attend a legislative hearing to support a Convention of the States

  3. Agreeing to volunteer for the next campaign for a legislator/candidate who supports a Convention of the States

  4. Donating to candidates/legislators who support a Convention of the States

  5. Donating to CSG to support this project

 Show me a link, to them and I will show what our team can do if they are trying to control We The People's Convention Of States, and by the way, this is what it is, by We The People.

Welcome to this group, Tim. To get the most mileage for your posts, please use the Discussion Forum for longer or more complicated posts of ideas. That way, those posts can be blasted out to the entire AFA membership. This is a very important topic and there are plenty of opinions on both sides. No doubt, you will add a new perspective for discussion. This Comment Wall is great for general comments but does not lend itself to in-depth discussion.

Welcome, Tim... Looking forward to hearing your ideas, and will certainly provide feedback! You may want to consider adding a new Discussion here in the COS forum (See "+ Add a Discussion" above)... this "Comment Wall" is great for general notices, but is awkward at best for conversations.

I am delighted to join this discussion group. Those of you who read my book, Ruling the Elite, Moving Power from the Parties to the People, (2011) may recall my many pages recommending this as a key part of a liberty solution. I am seeking to refine those thoughts for a second edition of RTE and am hopeful that ideas shared here can help.

To get that underway, I should probably compare RTE to Levin: generally, his thoughts are much more legalistic, as they should be from a lawyer's viewpoint, and more, well, shallow. My thinking is more robust and solution oriented, coming from a Tea Party viewpoint. Let me begin by requesting any of you who might have read RTE to please offer your comparison of it to Levin's more recent work. I will look for that for a third party view would be useful, but also plan to return here and put one or two of the many COS related RTE points to get your reaction, whatever it may be.     For Freedom, Tim Horn

So much for the Convention of the States. It was on shaky ground with me before this, but now with the elite GOP candidate endorsing it. I'm not for it.

It's PAST time, Bruce... this guy is a prime example of the "Defeat-All-Representatives-Except-Mine Syndrome"... I hate to sound like a Clinton-style operative here, but what we need is for someone to uncover a good scandal.

Mike - your comments are spot on.  Thank you for pointing out the work around King Biggs.  It is time to dethrone him.

Comment by Michael Alexander on August 27, 2015 at 7:12am

The senate rules allow for the leader (Biggs) to be over-ridden by a majority of the majority. Last year when he refused to allow the COS bill to come to a vote, the number needed was 9. Unfortunately, only 7 stood up, and we ran out of time. It's highly likely that the bill will once agaoin be sponsored by a representative in the house where it should, again, pass easily... what we need is a strong co-sponsor in the senate who will whip the votes in preparation for another Biggs pocket veto. Here is the "Laundry List" of senators who were publicly willing to stand up to Biggs and put patriotism over politics last session:

Nancy Barto, Jeff Dial, John Kavanagh, Debbie Lesko, Steve Pierce, Steve Smith, Kelli Ward and Steve Yarbrough

Note: Sylvia Allen was a deep disappointment... she said she would "vote for the bill if it came to the floor", but would not join her colleagues on the Laundry List.

Mike White - Senator Biggs is so entrenched.  He can not be recalled.  Other Senators are not ready to challenge his being the Senate President.

We need to work around him and find some senators willing to sponsor the resolution.

Comment by Mike White on August 26, 2015 at 1:25pm

Is there enough disgust with Biggs within the AZ GOP, especially the Senate, to get him removed from his leadership position?  I have to wonder if he is returning favors to some special interest group (with lots of money), or if they have something on him.  Either way, he must go.  He is not our dictator.

The best in books to make every conservative start thinking in new ways about America and the world being controlled by the Obama Administrations AND Republicans and Democrats.  Some surprises are in store for those who look!




Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.

At present, most persons decide to act on whatever happens with their thoughts. But doing so puts them in competition with one of the creator's natural laws first identified by Richard Wetherill.


The answer is not complicated. People must stop basing their behavior on their personal thinking. Instead they have to act on the creator's thoughts, here being described in the English language as rational, honest, and morally right.

No longer should people reason from their concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, likes and dislikes, or whatever else comes to mind. Instead, mankind must think the creator's thoughts. That enables them successfully to do what is rational, honest, and morally right.

That may seem incredible until understood. But, consider that it is the way that mankind can escape the death penalty everybody has been paying since the days that people were created.

Join the survivors who have stopped their personal thinking. They now base their behavior on the creator's guiding thoughts to act in a way that is rational, honest, and morally right.
