Hey libs, its happening. The first state has passed a resolution to convene a constitutional convention and right the balance between the federal and state governments. Politisite reports:
**State Representative Buzz Brockway (R-Lawrenceville) celebrated the passage today of Senate Resolution 736 by Senator Cecil Staton (R- Macon) in the Georgia House of Representatives. SR736 calls for an Article V Convention of States for the purpose of proposing amendments to the United States Constitution on the limited topics of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government and establishing term limits for federal officials
Brockway, the resolutions primary sponsor in the Georgia House said,Im proud Georgia has taken the lead on the very important work of restoring our Republic. An Article V Convention of States would provide an opportunity for the citizens of this great nation to restore the balance of power between the States and the Federal government. I urge Legislators in the other 49 states to join Georgia and call for a Convention of States for the purpose of proposing amendments to the U.S. constitution.
By a vote of 107-58, Georgia becomes the first state in the country to pass this historic resolution which is being promoted nationwide by the Convention of States Project (COS), a grassroots, non-profit organization founded this past August by constitutional attorney, Dr. Michael Farris, of Virginia, and Mark Meckler, founder of the political think tank, Citizens for Self-Governance. The same resolution has been introduced into 13 different state legislatures in 2014 with more to come. COS hopes to gain passage in 34 states in time for a convention to be held in 2016.**
Mark Levin deserves substantial credit for engaging the subject of an Article V Convention with his book The Liberty Amendments.
The Founders bequeathed us a Constitution with self-correcting mechanisms, including the ability of states to rein in a federal government that had distorted federalism into something like a unitary government administered from Washington, DC. A giant step forward has been taken.

One down , 33 to go. And I don't think they can limit the scope of a constitutional convention, so same sex marriage will be on the table, Innuendo Man.

And given that states have defined marriage as one man and one woman if that comes up my is on a constitutional amendment defining marriage as such and eliminating any government shelter for the queers to hide behind while spreading disease.
