The proposed Assembly of the States can begin any time a single state legislature decides to act as host. A May 2016 start date is entirely reasonable, as most of the 50 state legislatures will convene in January 2016, which gives plenty of time for them to act, if they are so inclined.

We are, after all, the United States of America, not the United Federal Government of America. The Assembly of the States would convene irrespective of the number of state legislatures that choose to send a delegation.

One hundred and fifty years after the end of the Civil War, it is becoming increasingly clear that there are two Americas—one where the principles of constitutionally limited government and individual liberty are still revered, the other where statism and the trampling of individual rights are on the rise. Widespread resistance at the state level, however, will require two elements: strong governors and strong state legislatures willing to vigorously assert their 10th amendment rights.

Despite calling Palmer’s delivery of the tool-embedded frozen meat to the convicts a mistake that broke the rules, all the correction officers with whom Breitbart News spoke continue to maintain that Palmer is being scapegoated for being manipulated by the convicts and Joyce Mitchell to provide the first tools needed to enable the escape.
When Orszag was named head of the OMB in January 2009, several of Gruber’s Phd. students were left behind at CBO to run its scoring model.

The 63-year old former Congressman and former Fox News contributor is clearly popular with the voters in his home state, where he won re-election to a second term handily in November, defeating his Democratic opponent by a 64 percent to 33 percent margin. But as the polls stand now, he does not even make the top ten hurdle his former employers at Fox News have set to even be allowed on the stage in the first televised Republican Presidential candidate debate it will host in August.
