Check out the video of the week! State Director's Corner- CTA- June 13 Primary 

The State Director's Corner-  May 29, 2017

Good morning Patriots!

It's Memorial Day and as we remember the sacrifices made by our fallen soldiers for the cause of freedom, I ask that you resolve in your hearts to do everything you must to impact our country for liberty.
Our most basic duty as a citizen is to participate in the election of our officials as an informed voter. Please review the website to see which candidates are up for the June 13 primary election and your polling place.

Also, the primaries offer an opportunity to get out, make friends and spread the message of self-governance through an Article V Amendment Proposing Convention of States. Many concerned, informed citizens will show up to polling places across the commonwealth. We at the cosaction website have petitions you can print and other great handouts at that site as well. Our country needs us to unite for the purpose of imposing fiscal restraint and limits on the federal government and to place term limits on federal officials. To do this we must educate and influence our State Legislators. I have recorded a short video with some tips on reaching people on Election Day.  

We are now up to 12 states who have called for a Convention of States to rein in federal overreach! Missouri just passed its resolution! We need Virginia to join with these liberty-loving states!  It's going to take action from you to get it done. 

The Founders would not be surprised by these abuses, but they would be shocked that we have tolerated them so long. They would demand an accounting for the gift of liberty that they fought and died to give us. And when we tried to blame Congress, the White House, and the Supreme Court, they would shake their heads. "We gave you Article V", they would say, "We gave you the power the power to stop tyranny." Michael Farris

Get involved: We need leaders to step up now! Be a leader! We are currently seeking media liaisons, coalitions directors, legislative liaisons, and tech managers at the regional level. (Note: The job descriptions at the link above show "state" level positions, but we will put you in the regional level.) we are also recruiting folks to join the Follow Up Team, Chat Team, QRT and Social Media Warriors.  We are also looking for people to meet with and call their State Legislator, recruit volunteers by forming their own local groups, help with events across the state, write letters to the editor and much more. There is something for everyone to do!

What are we all about? Building the most effective grassroots organization in the Commonwealth of Virginia that will join with others states to restore the sovereignty of the people by educating and influencing the General Assembly of Virginia to pass our COS resolution to invoke Article V of the U.S. Constitution. Then, influence the legislators to select delegates to the convention, and ratify the amendments.

Saturday at 11:00 AM EST- COS and Social Media: RSVP here.
Sunday at 8:00 PM EDT - Weekly BattleCry with Mark Meckler. RSVP here. 
Tuesday at 7:00 PM EST - Intro to Convention of States. RSVP here.
Tuesday at 9:00 PM EST - National DC and Volunteer Call. RSVP here.

Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida Chairman Bob White Jumps into Gubernatorial Race

Written by Kevin Derby
GOP activist Bob White, the chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida (RLCF), announced on Monday that he is running for governor in 2018 when Gov. Rick Scott faces term limits. 

White, who also leads Republican Liberty Caucus of Central East Florida (RLCCEF) and the founder of the Liberty Catalyst Fund (LCF) which works "to educate voters on issues of liberty, freedom, constitutional integrity and limited government" and "promote candidates that demonstrate a commitment to these principles and oppose candidates that do not," has been active in recent months, opposing Scott's call for more funding for Enterprise Florida and Visit Florida. In recent years, White has been a vocal champion of campaign finance reform and elections reform. 

"I'm running for Governor because I love Florida. I've been a Floridian since the day I was born. I can't imagine living anywhere else," White wrote in an open letter to Floridians announcing his candidacy. "I grew up in Polk County, in the heart of the Florida citrus industry. As teenagers, we earned our spending money picking fruit, pruning trees, and moving irrigation pipe before and after school. We even worked 'firing' the groves when the temperatures dropped below freezing. As a fourth generation Floridian, some of my fondest childhood memories are of family reunions on the shores of Silver Lake, near Palatka, or at my grandparent's home in Okeechobee.

"To be sure there are places in Florida where that idyllic lifestyle still exists," White continued. "I hope we never lose that part of our heritage. But the reality is that times have changed. Florida is now the third largest state in the nation and is experiencing every advantage and disadvantage that kind of population growth inevitably brings. Growth presents opportunities and challenges. We need a government in Tallahassee that embraces the opportunities and rises to the challenges! Sadly, that's not what we've been getting. I aim to change that.
