The 2017 Utah State Legislative Session began Jan 23. Legislation has already been introduced that could spell the end of the U.S. Constitution as we know it.
Instead of holding politicians in D.C. accountable for violating the
law, misguided Utah state legislators simply want to CHANGE the Constitution.
. .. . . the SAME Constitution that politicians currently refuse to
Proponents have been working behind the scenes for months to get our state legislature to issue a new call for a convention. The Current resolution HJR3, Joint Resolution Calling For A Convention To Amend The Constitution Of The United States. In viewing the text of the resolution, notice the wording of the body is EXACTLY the same, including the resolution number, to the Virginia effort. THIS IS NO ACCIDENT!
Not only should our legislators rescind Utah’s current convention resolution, but they need to oppose any new call for an Article V Convention. Please help send a message to them.
Please take a stand HERE by signing the petition opposing a ConCon today?
Establishment politicians from both parties have been incrementally dismantling your rights for decades upon decades. An Article V Convention could allow them to lay waste to all of your rights in one single, devastating action.
Sadly, some well-meaning Utahans have been misled into believing a ConCon will help create new “limits” on the federal government, but those limits could dismantle current constitutional restrictions and give the government even MORE control and power to take away our money and our liberty.
Utahans are invited to learn more about what proponents of an Article V Convention are NOT telling you. Robert Brown will teach how Nullification is a better method. Everyone should also invite their legislative representatives to this event.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF A CONVENTION IS HELD?
Because an Article V ConCon has never been attempted, none of the self-proclaimed “experts” behind this effort really know what will happen if they get their way.
The truth is that coercive, progressive activists — like
BILLIONAIRE George Soros – expect to be able to use their power and
influence to direct the entire process.
One group supportive of a ConCon — Convention of States Project — points out on its own website that if a convention is called. . .
“. . . the convention of states itself would determine which ideas deserve serious consideration. . .”
WHO WANTS A CONVENTION AND WHAT DO THEY WANT?
Coercive, progressive activists — like BILLIONAIRE George Soros – hope
to use their power and influence to direct the entire process.
Literally hundreds of progressive organizations, such as Wolf PAC,
Sierra Club, Code Pink, Alliance for Progressive Values, Move On, and
“Occupy,” have been pushing for a convention since 2009!
Many of these groups want to limit your political speech rights protected by the First Amendment.
Others want to do away with the Second Amendment entirely.
That is why it is so important to sign the petition HERE right away. By doing so we can let our Utah legislators know that YOU, their constituents, want them to OPPOSE a ConCon and SUPPORT a resolution to rescind any current call for a Convention.
Former Barack Obama campaign advisor Lawrence Lessig — who supports the efforts of BOTH Wolf PAC and Convention of States Project — recently said the following about a ConCon:
“The beauty of a convention is that it would provide a forum of possibility for conservative Tea Party types as well as progressives.
“The only requirement is that two-thirds of the states apply, and then begins the drama of an unscripted national convention to debate questions of fundamental law. It would be a grand circus of democracy at its best.”
