To The Honorable State Legislator,
I am contacting you with the hope that you will take a hard look at the information I am presenting you today. I am asking you to pre-file The Countermand Call on Congress along with the corresponding Delegate Resolution containing the pre-approved text of The Countermand Amendment. I pray that this vitally important legislation can be introduced first thing next session. Please have your policy directors and analysts examine the following.. I hope to hear from you soon.
On Saturday April 16, 2016 Alaska made Constitutional history and it is going to change the course of our Constitutional Republic forever. The Alaska House and Senate passed with overwhelming margins and with bi-partisan support (3 democrats and 1 independent) both the Article V Countermand Amendment ‘Application’ on Congress and the Delegate Resolution. NON-PARTISAN!! Finally something we can ALL agree on!
HJR14 and SJR15 the Application for the Countermand Amendment Convention and HCR4 and SCR4 the Delegate Resolution
What does The Countermand do? Excellent question!
UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS CAN BE COUNTER-MANDED AND RESCINDED: (Not just nullified but rescinded!)
1. Executive Orders
2. Court decisions
3. Budgets & Debt
5. Social Issues
7. Laws Against 2nd Amendment
8. DHS, EPA, BLM, IRS, DOJ Regulations and more COUNTERMAND IT!!
We don’t need 8 to 10 different amendments because The Countermand Amendment is THAT POWERFUL. 8 short clauses and fewer than 400 words of pure inspired good Old Fashioned American Ingenuity that our Founding Fathers would be proud of.
The Countermand Amendment will empower the States to Countermand and rescind any Federal law or regulation that violates States Rights or personal liberties. When 60% of the States agree on a specific Countermand the law or ruling is automatically rescinded. The Federal government can rewrite the law in a way more amenable to the States or abandon it. The States now become respected partners in government, not subjects to Federal mandates.
The Countermand Amendment does not alter the Constitution in any way. It simply allows the States the proper authority to protect their sovereignty from Federal or other forms of encroachment. There is not much time left before we are all under a tyranny that forbids us from properly using Article V. Only the States can restore our Constitutional Republic with Article V.
The Countermand Amendment stands apart from and independent of all other Article V initiatives. We will cooperate with any of them if they do not surrender sovereignty and deliberative Legislature authority. We have one chance to get this right. We must not be duped by flawed claims by others who have assumed that an Article V Convention is a ConCon (or some modified form) and that delegates are equivalent to the delegates at the 1787 Convention. Article V delegates are Ambassadors of the Legislatures, not free agents. They are not charged with the awesome task of creating a new Constitutional document and government.
The Countermand Amendment will stop Federal encroachments on: enumerated rights; un-enumerated rights (each rescission constitutionalizes a States Right in 10th Amendment); privacy; free markets; Congressional budgets; Court decisions; regulatory rulings; taxes; energy; Executive Orders; unfunded liabilities; health care; social issues; and more.
Intentional violators of the Amendment can be prosecuted under Federal or State laws.
With the Countermand Amendment the States retain their sovereign deliberative authority. WE THE PEOPLE will be able to petition legislators to seek relief from specific encroachments by the Federal government.
Each State Legislature can establish its own Countermand Committee to:
1) select and countermand encroachments adversely affecting their State: and
2) notify other State Countermand Committees of its action requesting they join them by exercising a similar countermand.
These are the 3 necessary documents below, I have also included step by step instructions for State Legislators
1) APPLICATION ON CONGRESS
Single Issue Countermand Amendment Convention
To assure that Congress will convene the Countermand Amendment Convention it is important that all Calling States have identical Titles and language in their Applications.
For a PDF copy of the Application on Congress click: http://citizeninitiatives.org/amendment_countermands/call_on_congress_countermand.pdf
2) COUNTERMAND AMENDMENT TEXT
To assure a safe, quick and successful Countermand Amendment Convention this text must be pre-approved by Calling States and included in the Delegate Resolution.

3) DELEGATE RESOLUTION COUNTERMAND AMENDMENT
Delegates are Ambassadors of their State Legislatures, they are not free agents! To assure a safe, quick and successful Convention it is necessary that all Calling States have the same instructions to their delegates to the Convention. This will prevent possible violations of Article I, Section 10 prohibiting Interstate Agreements without the consent of Congress. The Governor has no Article V authority and does not have to sign this Resolution.

As an aside:
We have 12 States suing over unprecedented federal land grabs. 26 States challenging E.O. AMNESTY law suit. 27 States challenging ACA obamacare. 24 States challenging the EPA over coal regulations. 27 States challenging Obama EPA water regulations. 11 States suing over bathroom policy?? Where does it end?
Why waste anymore time or money in Federal Courts with no guaranty of a favorable outcome when 30 States can simply Countermand the issue? If each lawsuit costs each State at least a million dollars just think how we could save The States right here alone!! We can free up our State resources again and use them to help The States and the people prosper again! Just imagine! SUPPORT THE COUNTERMAND AMENDMENT TODAY!!!
