South Carolina CALL TO ACTION

Note: This is an in-state Call to Action. It only applies to folks in South Carolina.

Dear Convention of States Project Patriot,

The Convention of States resolution in South Carolina -- S 198 -- was passed out of the South Carolina Senate with a vote of 13 to 8 last Tuesday. Every single Republican present on that committee voted for this resolution.

Unfortunately many Democrats in the SC Senate are opposing this effort to rein in the federal government and a “minority report” was placed on this bill when it was sent to the Senate floor. A “minority report” permits one person to thwart the efforts of the majority….and prevents debate and vote on our resolution!

The North Dakota Senate will vote this week on HCR 3014, giving the state the opportunity to become the fourth state in history to pass the Convention of States application to reign in the runaway power of the federal government.

The problems our nation faces are the result of constitutional interpretations that capitalize on ambiguities in the wording of some phrases (i.e., the General Welfare Clause).  If we correct these ambiguities by clarifying the Founding Fathers’ original intentions regarding the limitations of federal power, we can restore the federal government to its proper, limited place.
