Virginia Files Application for Convention of States
Powdered Wig Society
By Thomas Madison
It requires a 75% majority of states to ratify Constitutional amendments, which is 38. However, it only requires 34 states to call for a convention.
I have to believe that there are enough fence-sitting Americans whose eyes have been opened over the past year that they will demand that their state reps vote for a convention of states. There are more red states than blue. It takes 34 states to call for a convention of states. I truly believe it can be done. The harder part is the 38 states it takes to ratify Constitutional amendments.
We have a corrupt, socialist impostor in the White House and a complicit Congress. The people must find a way to go around them. The guys in the powdered wigs had it all figured out from the beginning. We have just never had a need to use it. Now we do!

Virginia was the first state to call the Philadelphia Convention of 1787. Once again, the historic state is standing up to defend the rights of the American people. With several states soon to follow, Virginia recently claimed the title of first to pre-file an application to call a Convention of States.
Del. Scott Lingamfelter (R-31) is leading the effort in Virginia, along with Del. Jim LeMunyon (R-67) who has been deeply involved in the process. After meeting with COS Leader, Michael Farris, Del. Lingamfelter agreed to push the application through as the prime sponsor during Virginia’s 2014 legislative session.
“Legislators are concerned with what’s going on. They are excited to see what’s happening, and want to take part,” said Mark Wohlschlegel, COS Executive Director.
Four additional states are expected to follow Virginia’s lead and pre-file applications in anticipation of the upcoming 2014 legislative season.”
