Article V Convention of the States called by Georgia Senate...
hen the Georgia House passes the application, the Senate secretary will transmit copies of it to the presiding officers of each of the legislative houses in the several states, requesting their cooperation.
- [T]he General Assembly of the State of Georgia hereby applies to Congress, under the provisions of Article V of the Constitution of the United States, for the calling of a convention of the states limited to proposing amendments to the United States Constitution that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress.
Since the states control everything that happens in their convention, and three-fourths of them must ratify whatever amendments it proposes before they become adopted, there's no danger of a so-called runaway convention that ends up fundamentally transforming our Constitution into Øbamarx's ejaculate-crustified copy of the The Communist Manifesto.
For now, this appears the best alternative to some short-lived Civil War II in which beta/blue states wind up conquered and occupied by alpha/red ones.
