The Problem

  • The federal government is spending away our children’s livelihood
  • We are facing a regulatory crisis
  • Congressional attacks on state sovereignty
  • Federal takeover of decision making

Our goal: to have you join us by signing the petition to urge and empower state legislators to call a Convention of States to propose amendments to the Constitution to curb the abuses of the federal government.

Have you served in the armed forces? America needs you to defend the Constitution once again and lead the veterans of Arkansas. As a State Veterans Coalition Coordinator, your primary role is to help identify, develop and lead your state’s ‘Veterans for COS’ team. You will be working closely with the Coalitions Director, Grassroots Coordinator and other members within your state team and are the link between these positions and the Veterans in your state.

State Veterans Coalition Coordinator

COS Arkansas currently has a need for a State Legislative Liaison, to serve as the interface between Arkansas legislators and the COS team. As legislative liaison, you will help educate legislators and assist the COS team in developing legislative strategies.

Apply to serve as State Legislative Liaison

 The grassroots are the key to victory -- high numbers ensure success. So are you ready to talk to your friends about the Convention of States Project?

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every Arkansas state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.

It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.

Join our team as a District Captain!

Physicians for COS

The diagnosis is clear.

We have a growing cancer today known as the Obamacare. As a result physicians are no longer free to practice medicine.

No profession feels the full force of the federal government more than physicians. The medical profession is the most highly regulated profession in the United States. The practice of medicine is controlled, taxed, and regulated to the point of being destroyed by the heavy hand of the federal government.

Physicians are told how to bill, how much to charge, and how to treat patients. They are mandated to use expensive electronic medical records. The federally enacted HIPPA (Health Information Privacy and Portability Act) makes the communication between physicians and atients burdensome, inefficient,and expensive. Every physician is required by federal mandate to register with the government to obtain an NPI (national provider identifier.) We are required by federal law to obtain and pay for a license to prescribe medication through the DEA, which is separate from our state licensure.

This heavy hand of government not only oversees the largest federal health bureaucracy ever created, but by extension reaches into every state, every city, and every small town to regulate how every licensed physician practices the art of medicine and how citizens obtain care.

The treatment is also clear.

The prescription for a cure was written into our constitution by our founders. Article V of our constitution allows for the states to call for a convention of states to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government through the proposal of constitutional amendments. Physicians should be the strongest supporters of this brilliantly-crafted states’ rights tool placed into our constitution by our founders.

I urge my fellow American physicians to join with me in supporting an Article V Convention of States to take back control of the practice of medicine. It’s the only way that we can return the practice of medicine back to the intimate relationship between a doctor and patient without interference by the heavy hand of a distant, national government.
