Oregon Governor: "Call the cops on your neighbors if they have more than 6 people at Thanksgiving"

Our "leaders" in government have gone off the rails.

In a frankly shocking interview, Oregon Governor Kate Brown called on Oregonians to call the cops on their neighbors if they have more than six people attending their Thanksgiving dinner

“Do you want people calling the police on their neighbors, non-emergency lines or 911?” KGW’s Maggie Vespa asked Brown on Friday.

“Look, this is no different from what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake,” Brown said. “What do neighbors do? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”

“But that could be a yes,” Vespa pointed out.

Brown answered, “Yes. Yes."

Violators of Gov. Brown's draconian measures could face up to $1,250 in fines as well as jail time.

Gov. Brown's attitude is the same taken by many members of the political class in the federal government: they think they know better than We the People, and they'll impose any laws and restrictions to bring the people in line. 

But We the People have never surrendered to tyrannical government, whether at the state or federal level. The people of Oregon will have a chance to deal with their governor next election, but we can do something right now about overreach at the federal level.

An Article V Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the scope and jurisdiction of the federal government. These amendments can shrink or eliminate federal bureaucracies, limit the power of all three branches of the federal government, and, most importantly, send a clear message to our political class: We the People are in control.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
