September 12 Meeting!

WHAT: Monthly Susquehanna Valley Conservatives Public Meeting

WHEN: Monday Sept 12, 2016 at 7:00 PM

WHERE: Baylor Conference Room – Best Western Country Cupboard Inn – north of Lewisburg along Route 15

PRESENTER/TOPIC: Bob Ritter will discuss the current push for an Article V Convention of States for Constitutional Amendments to 1) Require a balanced federal budget, and 2) Impose term limits on federal Senators and Representatives.

America is being crippled by out-of-control federal spending, federal debt (currently $ 20 trillion and rising), federal regulations, and a massive shift of power from the states to the federal government. There is no reason to believe future elections will materially change this. The situation is unsustainable therefore the states must consider their constitutionally-sanctioned option to prevent severe economic and social consequences as a result of runaway federal policies and actions.

During the Constitutional Convention of 1787, the Framers recognized that the federal government being created could become so powerful and tyrannical that it would never initiate actions to re-establish original constitutional limits on its power. The Framers included Article V of the Constitution which authorized a process wherein the states, independent of Congress, can debate, adopt, and ratify amendments to the Constitution.

The Article V process provides that Congress shall call a convention to consider amendments upon the application of at least 2/3 (currently 34) of the states. If amendment(s) is/are adopted in convention, the amendment(s) would then go to the states for ratification, with an affirmative vote by at least 3/4 (currently 38) of the states required for ratification.

January’s Meeting – Movie at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship Church

WHAT: Susquehanna Valley Conservatives January 11, 2016 Public Meeting

WHEN: Monday January 11, 2016 at 7:00 PM

WHERE: Cornerstone Christian Fellowship Church – Bull Run Crossing (Between Rts 45 and 192) just west of Lewisburg .

We will be showing the film “3801 Lancaster: American Tragedy”. This 46 minute documentary details the horrific story of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell. Following the film, Michael Geer (Pennsylvania Family Institute) will discuss abortion in the United States.

We will be asking for a free-will donation – proceeds to be distributed between 2 local women’s resource centers – Expectations Women’s Center (Lewisburg) and Birthright (Sunbury).

NOTE: THE FILM WILL NOT BE SHOWN AT THE CAMPUS THEATER IN LEWISBURG AS WAS ORIGINALLY ANNOUNCED. The theater initially rejected showing the film and allowing Michael Geer to speak due to concerns about “religious or political” content. The Campus did eventually relent and give permission for Susquehanna Valley Conservatives to show the film and have Mr Geer speak; however by the time they reached that decision we had already made arrangements with the church.

The topic of this film transcends politics. It is a moral issue. It is about the same horrific crime repeated thousands of times over many years. It tells the story of Dr. Kermit Gosnell; perhaps America’s most prolific serial killer. Dr. Gosnell is now incarcerated for the abortion/murder of tens of thousands of babies at his ‘clinic’ in the Philadelphia area.

WHEN: Monday December 14, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Representative Marino will bring us up-to-date on happenings in Washington DC. For anyone who has attended an SVC meeting where Representative Marino was the speaker, you know he likes a ‘town hall’ format in which he takes questions from the audience.  Bring your questions.
