Freedom Makers meeting scheduled for Saturday

Saturday, August 12, 2017 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. the Freedom Makers of Dubois County will host State Senator Eric Bassler of Washington at the Shoney’s in Jasper.

Among the topics to be discussed will be:

1.       State law around economic development via TIF and abatements and any potential changes coming.

2.       Where the Article V convention movement stands after the election of Donald Trump as President.

3.       What the State Senator sees happening over the next two years from the state legislature, and if the legislature will seek tax cuts to offset the recent raising of many fuel taxes.

Other topics will be discussed as well.

Additionally, will also discuss the recent announcement of State Rep. Mike Braun’s announcement of officially running for Republican nomination for their US Senate candidate, and what that means for his current elected position, and those who could be running for it. We will also discuss the announcement from Dr. Richard Moss for his challenge against Rep. Larry Bucshon IN-8 for the Republican primary nomination for Congress. Lastly, we will discuss the sudden interest in Dubois County from the Libertarian Party of Indiana and what they have asked our group to pass along.

    At the request of our organization, Single Subject Amendment, H.J.Res. 25 was introduced, in the 115th Congress by Congressman Tom Marino, to propose an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to prohibit the use of riders by members of Congress. Forty-one state constitutions have a single subject provision, which prohibits bills that address more than one subject from becoming law, but this provision, applicable to Congress, is missing in the U.S. Constitution.

    H.J.Res. 25, at, will never pass, however, until Congress is forced to pass it. The only way to force Congress to pass it is to threaten an Article V Convention to propose this amendment. Through our efforts, the Florida Legislature passed, CS/HM 261, which makes application to convene an Article V Convention for the limited purpose of proposing this amendment. Other states will soon follow. A copy of CS/HM 261 can be viewed at:

    A document on our website, at, addresses the misrepresentations regarding the convening of an Article V Convention and is backed up with citations and links. (It would be virtually impossible for a limited convention to become a runaway convention.) This document also details the urgent need to add a Single Subject Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    Whether Congress proposes this amendment or an Article V Convention proposes this amendment, to be adopted, it must be ratified by 38 states.
