Arizona Call to Action--Vote Scheduled this Wednesday


Dear ##ToName##,

As an Arizona resident, you have a unique opportunity today to help
halt the expansion of the federal government and curb the abuses of
Washington, D.C.

While we are both homeschooling dads and leaders, this message is
being sent in our personal capacities and not on behalf of any
homeschooling organization.

Like all of you, we are citizens who believe in liberty and are
increasingly concerned by the abuse of power in Washington, D.C. If we
are going to preserve the liberty of the next generation, we believe
that we must do something at the state level to stop the federal abuse
of power.

This state-based solution was given to us by George Mason at the
Constitutional Convention. He predicted that the day would come when
Washington, D.C., would abuse its delegated powers. And when that day
came, he knew that amendments would be needed to correct the
situation. He also predicted that Congress would never propose
amendments that would stop the abuse of federal power. So, he insisted
that Article V be written to give an alternative method to impose real
checks and balances on federal power.

Article V of the Constitution enables the citizens--through their
state legislatures--to call a Convention of States to propose the
constitutional amendments needed to reign in Washington, D.C. To call
this convention, 34 states must pass a resolution (called an
"application") calling for a Convention of States. (You can find much
more information by clicking on this link: .)

Among those supporting this effort are Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, David
Barton, Mike Huckabee, U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, and U.S. Senator Ron
Johnson and many others.

The Arizona House is considering a Convention of States application,
and, with your help, we know we can secure a victory. The first time
the application (HCR 2027) came up, the House narrowly rejected the
resolution. Fortunately, thanks to one of our supportive legislators,
the House will reconsider HCR 2027 on Wednesday.

So here's what you can do to help:

1. Determine how your representative voted last week: .

2. If your representative voted yes, please send them an email
thanking them and encouraging them to again support HCR 2027: .

3. If your representative voted no, please call or email them,
encouraging them to vote YES on Wednesday: . Offer one or two reasons why
you think they need to act to protect our liberties from federal

The Convention of States plan is safe. Here's why: . You can also become further
involved at the Convention of States Project as the bill moves on to
the Arizona Senate: .

We really need your help. Liberty for our children and grandchildren
will not be preserved unless the states stop the federal abuses of
power very soon.

Thanks for standing with us.

-> Can you look at the clouds and tell the direction of the wind?

An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple
directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground.
But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts
and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate
of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing,
we're there to protect your family.
