Every citizen needs to contact their Representative in the Georgia House TODAY and ask him or her to support HB 3, the Constitutional Tender Act!

It's best to call your State Representative and ask him to sign on as a co-sponsor. If they respond with something like, "I'll vote for it if it gets on the floor," just tell them, "It CAN'T get to the floor unless you co-sponsor it FIRST. So will you?" If you're writing a letter, a fax or an email, here is a sample letter that you can copy and paste, or modify yourself, to send to your State Representative (download a PDF copy here):
Rep. [FIRST NAME] [LAST NAME]If we can literally overwhelm our legislators with emails, letters, faxes and phone calls, then we DO have a chance to restore our State to sound money, and sane Constitutional monetary policies! PLEASE TAKE ACTION TODAY!
Dear Rep. [LAST NAME],
As your constituent, I'm contacting you to ask you to please co-sponsor, and vote for, HB 3, the Constitutional Tender Act.
We are in an economic CRISIS, and we need a Sound Money solution NOW — before it’s too late, and the dollar loses all of its value.
This type of bill is needed because, due to the ever-widening circle of economic disaster that is affecting the citizens of every State, we MUST do something to at least begin the process of restoring sound money and a sound economy, even if (and especially if) the current federal administration refuses to do so.
This bill is also needed because Georgia, like every other state, is in violation of the U.S. Constitution (Article 1, Section 10) without such a bill (because the State is making some other "Thing" a Tender in Payment of Debts, both to and by the State). As a state legislator, you swear an oath to uphold that Constitution, so ethically and morally you need to do whatever the Constitution requires.
Please, put the people of Georgia and their well-being above any partisanship or politics, and especially above any fears about your "reputation" with others. What is important is the welfare of the citizens of this state, and the need to abide by the U.S. Constitution.
PLEASE, co-sponsor HB 3, the "Constitutional Tender Act," TODAY and vote for the bill in committee and on the floor -- but DON'T wait until it gets to the floor; it can't get there unless you co-sponsor it! I will be watching your actions on this bill very closely, and will remember them on election day.
