Arizona Citizens Supporting Honest Representative Government At All Levels
Tea Party Convention Of States, they say we are nothing but a Bunch of Tea Party Rednecks. That we lack intelligence, do we have a surprise for them, because soon we will release a video, of the Corporate flunkies as they try to buy out the name of We the People of the Tea Party.
The closing of the forum. or the blog if you wish to call it that, "A 50 States Convention Program- Article V of the Constitution", has caused a large debate, by our members and others. It has been deemed wrong and UN-Constitutional. So a vote took place, and this A 50 States Convention Program- Article V of the Constitution went forward anyway.
You are already aware of my previous concerns with this movement. Now it appears they are having secret meetings with politicians. I did not join this action to benefit the government in any way. Anytime things are done in secret behind the American's backs we get screwed.

Concerned citizen ousted from Convention of States meeting, deemed a “potential disruptive threat”
An article submitted by Donny Harwood to Bradley County News-
I was tossed out of a Convention of States meeting in Nashville TN tonight.
I applied online to this very public meeting and received a ticket to attend. Immediately upon arriving, I said my name and I was surrounded immediately by COS employees and escorted out.
I demanded that I be able to attend this very important meeting but was told that because COS paid for the room they can determine who attends and who does not. I asked if I could speak with my State Senator Mike Bell and Mr Clark, a COS Regional Director said I could call him but he had not talked to him. I then asked for Mark Meckler and he said he was not attending this meeting.
My State Senator Mike Bell as well as Sheila Butt, Bill Ketron and Jay Reedy were inside with 5 other State Legislators reportedly. I was told this meeting was for them, this was the purpose. My question is what about the people who will be affected by these proposed changes and the fear that comes with a runaway convention.
I was told that I was a “potential disruptive threat” and that I was “Red Flagged” by someone in the organization. I was not disturbing a thing and even gave them my word that disruption was not my intent, I only wanted to learn more about this process. After all, I was told on two occasions to come to the meeting so “I could learn what it is about.”
At first I was angry then sad. I saw a slice of America that was not part of my country. In my opinion, they are attempting to put our Constitution in the trash and are not even allowing a conflicting opinion enter the room. There is a collective spookiness about this group of “conservatives!” I have not completely figured it out but I’m piecing it together.
The COS Regional Director first name I believe was Kevin, last name Clark, he was very nice but was visibly being directed by someone above him in the decision to toss me from the meeting. This display of tyrannical behavior by a “Conservative group” is completely unacceptable and begs all opposing to study this group and I would suggest we follow the money. Something is not right about it. I believe there is an agenda behind the agenda. Just a hunch, but I’m usually right about these things.
A task as big as changing our Constitution and putting our country at great risk, this group should be accountable to the people not just the politicians that will be called upon to call a convention. Secrets and “Private” meetings within a Republic is not the way things get done and it leaves the people with little input. This Constitution is also mine to protect. Those trying to pervert it in my opinion are enemy number one. This is a very sensitive issue with me as well as millions of other freedom loving Americans. Co-opting anyone’s freedom papers like the Constitution should never be allowed to act this way unimpeded.
One thing that I have drawn from this fiasco is it has only strengthened my resolve to make sure a Con Con does not come together in TN and across the nation. My cage has been rattled and that energy will spill over into our efforts to stop a Con Con.
The actions by COS tonight shows me that perhaps this animal has grown too big and out of touch with the people they are suppose to represent.
We have our work cut out for us. Continue to spread the word and direct people to this site. It’s crucial that we have great numbers to confront this gulag.
Remember, “Where the flak is heaviest it confirms the target!”
Just a little up date we are bring a fight against.
Just wondering if it ever occurred to you that since these Article V advocates have been involved in this effort, and have been refining the process, for about two years now, that just maybe they've heard and responded to all that "fear of a runaway convention" stuff more times than they can possibly count, and that they've decided to move on.
I suppose if you're new to the movement, you should be granted some consideration, and someone should take you aside and explain to you that your fear is groundless. If, however, you're a veteran fear-monger, then you should know that recent developments in the process and in the legislation itself has rendered the "runaway" argument irrelevant.
I might add that in such an informational setting, someone who proposes to bring a tired and thoroughly debunked argument perfectly fits the definition of "a disruptive threat."
Even the anti-federalists among the Founders knew when to let go of their fear and try a little courage and faith instead.
The issue is not a run a way Convention, the issue is the politicians in office now, they are the run a way Convention. The are the Con cons, they are the liars, most of them anyway.
My little COS called it We The People's Convention Of States., has grabbed National Attention. They are afraid.
COS proposals are or must be a open door policy. The shock and aw of it all was these guys, who came to enforce We The People's Convention Of States. And they are my friends and our Team Members, all 1168 of them.
Your post and your position was and remains muddled. I'm sure it makes sense to you, but personally I'm at a loss. It seems that you may be assuming of your readers a certain level of general awareness of your group, your position and the sequence of prior events that led up to the current situation. In my case, at least, you've given me way too much credit.
Whatever the case may be, I truly hope the issue is resolved in a manner that best suits the interests of the Republic.
Seeing how so many wish to Amend the Constitution, with those in Office, we are Boycotting all Amendments until they are voted out. And it is growing very fast.

look for vto part 1 and part 2, welcome to the resistance.
I don't trust politicians as far as I can throw any one of them.
Thats the whole point, since NAFTA, to TPA, to TPP Legislation, and the biggest why of them all, of why Convention Of States asked my dad to help ? He is so out spoken, and creative in things now, it has stunned so may sites.
Convention Of States, a Solution As Big As the Problem, the vto program is in place and not only are we going to have one heck of a election change, we will have a COS, with a honest chance for it to do the job intended for.
And by the way Michael, we do not have readers, we have members, and if Alice come through, we will have close to 6000 supporters :)
