Alabama Constitutional Convention sign now

The United States Congress has refused to represent the best interests of the Citizens of the United States of America specifically regarding the use of Imminent Domain and in countless other instances. The Framers of the U.S. Constitution allowed for a provision to override the Congress in such an instance. The right of the people to hold a Convention, in the case that the Congress refuses to address the will of the people, must be secured by an Amendment that specifically details a Convention for Proposing an Amendment.

PLEASE LEAVE AN EMAIL WITH THE AUTHOR, AS YOU WILL BE CONTACTED WHEN THIS PETITION IS SUBMITTED TO THE STATE LEGISLATOR, IN ORDER TO CONFIRM YOUR STATUS AS A RESIDENT OF ALABAMA. MORE INFO IS AT WARONPOLITICS.ORG

I, a citizen of Alabama and of the United States of America, wish the State Legislator of Alabama to submit the following Amendment to Congress in an application to call a Convention for Proposing this Amendment for ratification into the U.S. Constitution as allowed for under Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

Amendment XXVIII
1. The citizens of the United States of America will be provided with an establishment in each county or parish from which they can cast their ballots in the most advanced manner available that allows for a secure and accurate account of the results in national elections and in the instance of a National Convention
2. During regular congressional elections, a section will be provided for the people on the congressional ballot to enter any subject of interest that any citizen feels should be addressed by a National Convention to propose an amendment. If three fourths of the voters coincide on one subject, then this subject will be a nominated convention and will be voted on during the next congressional election by the citizens.
3. A National Convention shall be called in the manner prescribed in Article five or a three fourths majority of the vote during regular congressional elections to convene a previously nominated National Convention.
4. A Nominated Convention voted in favor of by three fourths of the popular vote during a regular congressional election will convene the 28th of January of the following year.
5. The first process of the Convention will be for the people of each county or parish to nominate citizens, who have never held an elected or appointed office of any kind, for a local selection committee to represent their parish or county. The ten nominees receiving the most votes will make up the local selection committee and will compose a draft of the proposed amendment or legislation. The final draft will be voted on by the people of the county or parish and will be adopted as their version when it receives three fourths majority of the county or parish vote.
6. Each Local Selection Committee will then elect two people from the group to represent their county's adopted proposal thus forming the State Selection Committee. The State Selection Committee will then write a draft of the proposed amendment for the State. It will come out of committee for a state vote when three fourths majority of the Committee vote for the proposal. The Committee may ask for a special state vote if they cannot get three fourths majority inside the Committee. Once the proposal is out of the state committee it will then need a three fourths majority state vote to be adopted as the state proposal.
7. Each State Selection Committee will then elect two people from the group to represent their state's adopted proposal thus forming the National Selection Committee. The National Selection Committee will then write a draft of the proposed amendment. It will come out of committee for ratification when three fourths majority of the committee vote for the proposal. The Committee may ask for a special national vote if they cannot get three fourths majority inside the Committee. Once the proposal is out of the National Committee it will then be up for ratification in the next Presidential Election year by conventions of three fourths thereof as noted in Article V.
