To: Rep. Perry, L.,
Subject: Step by Step Instructions for Making a Call for SOVEREIGNTY & STATES RIGHTS AMENDMENT CONVENTION
ARTICLE V CALL FOR THE “SOVEREIGNTY AND STATES RIGHTS AMENDMENT CONVENTION” through State Legislatures, bypassing Congress, the Courts and Executive Branch.
The Amendment restores Constitutional, National and States Sovereignty, provides protections against ill advised enactments of Martial Law, enhances Privacy Protections, gives the States Countermand authority to disallow Federal laws (current and retroactive), and provides Enforcement authority to the States. State Legislatures are America’s final arbiters in all Constitutional issues.
CITIZEN INITIATIVES is facilitating the Call for the Sovereignty and States Rights Amendment Convention between the States.
There are two major differences that separate us from other Article V Convention advocates:
1. State Legislatures alone are sovereign under Article V. They do not need permission from Congress, the Courts, Executive Branch or Regulatory Agencies when Calling for a Convention. Sovereign citizens elect legislators to perform their Article V duties when an egregious wrong is suffered by the people.
2. Delegates who are sent to the Convention are Ambassadors of their Legislatures, they are not free agents. State Legislatures alone can define the deliberations of the delegates at the Convention, including the wording of the proposed Amendment.
The State Legislatures must not abdicate their Article V sovereignty. If they do then others will define it for them - Congress, the Courts, Executive Branch, Regulatory Agencies, Delegates, or Article V Groups. Once abdicated they will not get it back.
Under Article V more than one Single Amendment Convention can be Called for at the same time by State Legislatures. The most urgent Amendment to be ratified is the Sovereignty and States Rights Amendment.

SAMPLE “CALL” ON CONGRESS: “Sovereignty and States Rights Amendment CONVENTION”:
1. Sponsor the Call for the Sovereignty and States Rights Amendment Convention in your State Legislature.
2. Because this “Application” on Congress is for a Single Amendment Convention, it is extremely important to keep the title of the Call the same for all Calling States.
3. The sample Call can be used or your Legislature can adopt other wording. However, remember the purpose of your Call is for a Single Amendment Convention so the content must not suggest that other issues will be deliberated on at the Convention by your delegates.

Text for “Sovereignty and States Rights Amendment”:
1. The text for the Sovereignty and States Rights Amendment must be agreed to by at least 26 Calling States. If one State Legislature changes the text in any way it will delay the process because 25 other Legislatures will have to agree to the change.
2. The text of the Amendment is “NOT” to be included in your Call on Congress directing Congress to convene the Convention.

Delegate Resolution FOR THE “Sovereignty and States Rights Amendment”:
1. The Delegate Resolution is your State Legislatures contract between you and the delegates you send to the Convention. It is “NOT” an Interstate Agreement between the States.
2. The delegates are Ambassadors of your Legislature, they are not free agents as some have foolishly argued.
3. State Legislatures alone choose how delegates are to be chosen.
4. The wording of the document can be altered, but the objective must be retained. The delegates are to complete the assignment you give them. They are “NOT” to operate as independent agents. One State added the penalty of criminal prosecution against their delegates if they violate the terms in the Delegate Resolution.
5. The Delegate Resolution does not need the signature of the Governor. It is a Legislative Resolution under Article V of the United States Constitution. Because State Legislatures are sovereign under Article V, it is a document that legislators alone approve.
6. The Delegate Resolution includes the text for the proposed Sovereignty and States Rights Amendment that the delegates will vote up or down at the Convention. Twenty six, or more, State Legislatures must approve the identical text of the Amendment in the Delegate Resolution in order for the Convention to be safe, predictable and successful.
