Georgia Becomes First State in History to Pass the Convention of States Application

Here we go folks!

Earlier this afternoon, Georgia become the first state in American history to pass the Convention of States application to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

The House voted to approve the Senate’s version of the resolution by a vote of 107-58.

“I am pleased that the Georgia legislature has given voice to the frustrations of millions of Georgians,” said State Sen. Cecil Staton (R-Macon), the resolution’s primary sponsor. “Enough is enough. It is time to impose fiscal and other restraints on our runaway federal government. We urge other states to join us.”

“We Georgians have become the hope of the Nation today,” said Jacqueline Peterson, the Georgia State Director for the Convention of States Project. “Many thanks to our State Legislators for standing for Liberty. May God bless us, every single one!”

Our deepest thanks go to our volunteers in Georgia. They took a stand for self-governance, and history will remember what happened in Georgia today. Because they decided to write a letter, make a call, attend a hearing, or meet with their state representative, they can tell their children and grandchildren they made a difference in the fight to preserve liberty.

We expect many more states to follow Georgia’s lead in the months ahead. These are historic times—I encourage you to remember this day and what it will mean for the future of our great country.

Hello Jim ~ thanks for joining the discussion! The rights are not we the people would get from this.  As I understand it, it is how the states would take back the powers initially given to them under the Tenth Amendment.  Sadly, the states have been under the thumb of the feds via all the alphabet agencies, and now Obamacare.  I don't quite understand it in depth, and I am still not confident that it IS the way to go.  I am certainly willing to continue the discussion.

It's about time!  Just hope the other states have enough to get on the band wagon----PRONTO!

Hi Marcus, 

Check this link out. It's packed with info on the subject. I'm concerned as well about this! If it can be done the way Mark Levin describes and not leave it open to mischief, I'm for it. If it can't, it is a bad idea!  I'm not sure!
