Advocate for the Digital Liberties Amendment in your state
There is a current movement to call a “Convention of the States” to consider amendments to the U.S. Constitution to “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.” Information on this movement can be found here.
At such a time as 2/3 of the States pass this Resolution, a Convention is called to consider proposals to amend the Constitution. Each such proposal, if accepted at this Convention, then goes to all 50 State Legislatures. Each such proposal then requires adoption by 3/4 of all States before taking effect. IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT A CONVENTION CANNOT AMEND THE CONSTITUTION. IT CAN ONLY FORWARD PROPOSED AMENDMENTS FOR RATIFICATION. AND RATIFICATION SUBSEQUENTLY REQUIRES 3/4 OF ALL THE STATES FOR EACH PROPOSED AMENDMENT. DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY THOSE WHO MIGHT CLAIM THIS IS A SCHEME TO FORCE AMENDMENTS ON OTHER STATES – RATIFICATION FOR ANY PROPOSAL EMERGING FROM THE CONVENTION WILL REQUIRE SUBSEQUENT APPROVAL BY 3/4 OF THE STATES.
I have no formal association with this movement or its site other than I support the calling of a Convention of the States. I am offering this site – and the Digital Liberties Amendment – as one of potentially other proposed Amendments. The Digital Liberties Amendment will “limit the power and jurisdiction” of the Federal Government as well as “impose fiscal restraints.” I imagine other proposals concerning matters like Congressional term limits will be presented by others.
As such, if you wish to advocate for the Digital Liberties Amendment we will need to join this effort to call a Convention of the States. When we succeed in calling the Convention, we will need to advocate before it (either in person or via email) for the Digital Liberties Amendment. Succeeding at that, our final hurdle will be advocating in our own State legislatures for the ratification of the Digital Liberties Amendment.
