A vote away from a Convention to Propose Amendments

Among the seventeen States which have not yet called for a Convention to Propose Amendments, is Virginia.  Notably, the Richmond Times-Dispatch recently reported that: "The [Virginia] House Committee on Rules on Tuesday passed House Joint Resolution 497, sponsored by Del. L. Scott Lingamfelter, R-Prince William, calling for a convention of the states to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution."

If that Joint Resolution passes both the Virginia Senate and the House, the magic number of "34" will be reached and Congress could be forced by Mandamus from the Supreme Court to discharge their ministerial duty to call such a Convention.

If that comes to pass, I think it rich that Virginia's state moto is:  Sic Semper Tyrannis ("Thus Always to Tyrants").

I am very disappointed that you are supporting the convention of states. It will quickly get out of control, be run by people who want to destroy the constitution (like Soros), and will erase your family heritage in the is country, reducing it to no more than a footnote in history

As usual the public is drugged or drunk on all these topics
