The Barrow County Republican Party welcomes you to our official website. We are committed to the promotion of Republican principles, development of effective grassroots to encourage citizens to vote, recruitment and election of qualified Republicans for public office, and fundraising to complete these objectives.
We are THE FREEDOM PARTY.
We believe in lower taxes (not raising taxes).
We believe in less governmental intrusion into our lives.
We believe in equal opportunity for all of our citizens (not equal results of misery).
TO RESTORE OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC
To be considered at our January 20, 2014 meeting
WHEREAS, the U.S. Congress at times passes unconstitutional laws, Presidents sign these laws, and the U.S. Supreme Court upholds these laws; and
WHEREAS, Article V of the U.S. Constitution allows two thirds of both Houses of Congress to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution; and
WHEREAS, the same Article V allows "on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which in either case, shall be valid to all intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution"; and
WHEREAS, both processes of Article V require amendments to be ratified "by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress"; and
WHEREAS, the proposed convention is not a Constitutional Convention for major overhaul of the U.S. Constitution;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the County Committee of the Barrow County Republican Party calls on our State Representatives, State Senator, the Georgia House Speaker, the Lieutenant Governor, and the Governor of Georgia, to support a resolution calling for a Convention of State Delegations for proposing amendments to the U.S. Constitution; and
FURTHER, BE IT RESOLVED, that no member of these Delegations will be serving or has served as President, U.S. Senator, or U.S. Representative; and
FURTHER, BE IT RESOLVED, that the following proposed amendment be introduced by the Georgia Delegation to the proposed Convention of State Delegations:
