August 3, 2006: The requisite state applications for an Article V Convention are registered in the Congressional Record.
Walker v. Members of Congress (05-35023 U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals) is now on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Under the authority of Article V of the U.S. Constitution, the convention clause is peremptory, Congress must call a convention once the requisite applications are received. The convention call is based on a simple numeric count of state applications, arguments otherwise are invalid based on the Constitution itself, and all founding documents related to the matter.
Members of Congress are failing to carry out their constitutional obligation and issue the call to the states and are currently in violation of federal criminal law. Congress cannot veto the calling of a national convention.
Please contact your representatives in Congress and let them know you expect them to follow the law as written in the U.S. Constitution, and that they go on record as being in favor of a national convention or resign their office.
