The push is a pet project of conservatives, who note that the U.S. Constitution under Article V allows states to meet and propose amendments to it. In this case, according to sponsor Sen. Cecil Staton, R-Macon, it would be to cap the federal government’s spending and impose term limits on Congress.
“I think the problem in Washington (D.C.) is not a Democratic problem,” Staton said. “It’s not a Republican problem. Frankly, it’s both.”
Senate Resolution 736 passed 37-16. It’s at least the 12th application the state has submitted in recent history requesting a convention, Staton said. The Constitution requires at least two-thirds — or 34 — states to petition on the same subject before a convention is called.
Virginia, Wyoming, Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Florida, Vermont, New Hampshire, Texas, Montana, and South Carolina are the next States that are expected to vote on this issue next. We will need 32 State legislatures to join Georgia before a new Constitutional convention can be called.
Even if all of the current 11 States pass similar resolutions, we would only have 12 total States that would be calling for a Constitutional Convention. Keep in mind that 10 of these 12 States are conservative with Vermont and New Hampshire being ultra liberal, but still more in line with conservative ideals and less inline with the brand of Marxist liberalism pushed by California and New York.

Below is an excerpt from the Facebook page of the Florida Party, which is a group of native Florida Crackers who are in the process of forming a 3rd political party for Floridians. They have decided that the current system is too far past the point of return to reform it by way of the ballot, and too corrupt for nullification to be effective.
We have been saying this for the past 3 years.
FLAP is made up of 25 founding leaders, they are co-ed in nature (men and women), and are made up of both Christian and Jewish Floridians. Seven of these 25 founding leaders are current elected officials within the State of Florida or work for the Florida government, and 3 are mid-to-large business owners. For obvious reasons these individuals have opted for extreme secrecy because if their names were to get out to the public, then the Federal Loyalists would do everything in their power to get them fired, prevent them from getting re-elected, and would boycott their businesses.
You have to understand that in order for the Free Dixie Project to secede a lot of its leaders will need to remain in the shadows until we hit a certain bench mark is hit… or until most of them become self-sufficient or retired and no longer would be subject to economic retaliation by Federal Loyalists, the Federal Empire, or anti-Dixon groups.
This is what the Confederate founders did, and what the Colonial founders did as well. Had the British known who the leaders of the American Revolutionists were then they would had jailed and executed them well before they could Declare Independence and secede from the British Empire. Likewise had the Federal Government known who the Confederate Revolutionists were then they would have jailed and executed them long before they could seceded from the American Empire and form the Confederacy.
So some Dixon Revolutionists will be in shadows, just like some American founding fathers and Confederate founding fathers were as well… and some will be out in the spot light.
This rule should go for our supporters as well. We urge our supporters to remain under the radar unless they are self-sufficient or self-employed. Many Florida public and private sector agencies and businesses are owned or managed by Yankee Carpet Baggers, radical minority groups, or Federal Loyalists of one degree or another (i.e. Marxist-Democrats or Imperial-Republicans). If you flaunt your pro-Dixon national identity then you will likely be the target of anti-Dixon bigotry in the form of being passed over for promotions, job offers, raises, and in some cases even fired.
Getting back to the original topic this is very good news for our movement, and is a major partnership for the new Free Dixie Project!
Below is the statement from the Florida Party… Read the rest of this entry
On Monday, Dr. Jim Garrow, a renowned author and humanitarian who was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, sparked a firestorm of controversy when he wrote on Facebook that President Obama wants military leaders who will fire on U.S. citizens. In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com, Dr. Garrow said the man who told him this is a military hero who is known by everybody in the country.
“I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new ‘litmus test‘ in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks,” he wrote. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not,” the unnamed military officer reportedly said. Dr. Garrow also wrote that those who do not meet this litmus test are being removed.
On Tuesday, Dr. Garrow said that officers who know about this cannot come forward without endangering themselves and facing possible retaliation from the administration. According to Dr. Garrow, the officer who made the allegation learned about the litmus test from the person who got him interested in military service. That person, Dr. Garrow added, was forced out for failing to meet the criteria.
Dr. Garrow said he promised to keep the officer’s name from the public, adding that he stands behind what he was told regardless of the consequences. “I would stake my full reputation on this gentleman,” he said. “If people want to throw things at me, fine,” he added, calling it “an honor” to come under fire for keeping his promise to the officer. Dr. Garrow told Examiner that there are people in the administration who are paid to “attack those who raise doubts”
about anyone who criticizes the Obama administration. These people include members of the new “State” media complex which includes CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and every other Liberal mouth piece for the Obama regime, Washington based Democratic staffers, Democratic Senators, ultra-liberal Hollywood celebrities, high ranking members of the Education community, and members of the military. The web of the Marxists within the Federal Empire is very deep and intricate. Read the rest of this entry
