Perry State Capitol , Suite 350 350 North State Street Salt Lake City, UT 84114 December 1, 2013 RE: PLEASE START THE AMENDMENT CONVENTION PROCESS IMMEDIATELY! Dear Rep. Perry: Washington is broken, and only you can fix it. Let me explain. With increasing frequency, all three branches of the federal government are acting unconstitutionally and depriving We The People of liberty, property, and, the case of Obamacare, life itself. The President ignores Constitutional restraints on his power. He uses the federal bureaucracy to issue new laws by decree, without Congressional action. He ignores federal court rulings. He decides which federal statutes he feels like enforcing, like some parts of Obamacare, and which he will ignore, like other parts of Obamacare, or current immigration law. Congress is ramming through 1000-plus page laws against the will of the people, with minimal debate, and delegating massive legislative authority to legions of unelected bureaucrats. The Supreme Court is routinely usurping authority to make decisions about such state-level issues as marriage and healthcare for 300 million Americans. There is no effective recourse if these decisions violate the rights and the will of the people. IT IS IN WITHIN YOUR POWER TO REVERSE THIS DISASTROUS TREND AND RESTORE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO ITS PROPER CONSTITUTIONAL LIMITS! It is extremely urgent that the State Legislature begins the process outlined in the second part of Article V of the U.S. Constitution for an Amendment Convention of the States, in order to bypass Congress. The process is simply and clearly explained in Mark Levin’s new book, The Liberty Amendments. Levin makes it very clear in his book that this is NOT a Constitutional Convention, and has no chance of becoming a “runaway” convention. Indiana State Senator David Long (Phone (317) 232-9416) is spearheading the Mount Vernon Assembly this December 7 to start discussing the Amendment Convention process. Let’s start with an Amendment to Establish Term Limits for Members of Congress: “SECTION 1: No person may serve more than twelve years as a member of Congress, whether such service is exclusively in the House or the Senate or combined in both Houses. SECTION 2: Upon ratification of this Article, any incumbent member of Congress whose term exceeds the twelve-year limit shall complete the current term, but thereafter shall be ineligible for further service as a member of Congress.” Sincerely, Edward B.
