Convention of States!


Libertarians for Convention of States: Slay the Federal Leviathan!

Andrew Napolitano"For generations, long before the Convention of States Project, I have joined many of my ideological and political friends in recognizing the need to call an Article V convention. American history and human nature teach us that Washington, D.C. will never actually restrain itself and restore the foundations of personal liberty that the Constitution purports to guarantee. Yet to build out the infrastructure, the organization, and the grassroots army to get it done is a huge undertaking. Today, the Convention of States Project is doing just that, and I'm proud to join with my friends Sen. Tom Coburn and Mark Meckler by endorsing what they are doing. When the actual convention is called to order—and it will be—I'd consider it an honor and a privilege to perform some of the heavy lifting: which is to draft and disseminate proposed constitutional amendments to the states that, in Jefferson's words, will chain down the federal government to the confines of the Constitution."
— Andrew Napolitano

If you want to be inspired – if you want to see “self-governance” in action – watch online as a legislative committee receives public comments about the Convention of States resolution. You will see rooms jam-packed with Americans from every walk of life, urging their state legislators to use their power to
restore liberty and our republic.

They are farmers who want the Environmental Protection Agency out of their ponds and puddles. They are business owners who want relief from regulations so extensive that teams of attorneys scarcely understand them. They are veterans who feel betrayed as they watch their liberties eroded.

They are parents who want control over education back in their own hands, where it belongs.

The “past” of our federal government points plainly to a future America effectively unmoored from her Constitution – unless we do something to change it.

Thoughtful patriots who are alarmed by our nation’s trajectory have concluded that the Article V convention process – the Constitution’s solution – offers the only peaceful, effective way to get back on track.

With a growing movement of 3.4 million supporters and 100,000 volunteers, Convention of States is the spark to ignite a new revolution to bring prosperity and liberty to America.

They are the Patrick Henrys of our time. They recognize the impotence of misplaced hopes. They know that institutions that have bent and twisted constitutional language to expand their own powers will never voluntarily bend it back to its original meaning. Only the Constitution’s state-led amendment process can fortify the boundaries of the enumerated powers with precise, 21st century language that today’s judges, politicians and bureaucrats will not be able to evade.

    “The only way to put government back in check and return America to its founding documents is if 'we the people' do it. Convention of States is a great organization built by and for the grassroots. I believe we have the opportunity right now to call a convention and turn our country around.

    “I'm a big believer in the Convention of States...I don't believe that Congress is going to limit their own power. I've pledged to support term limit legislation, and if Convention of States can accomplish that through an Article V convention, more power to them.” Click here for video.

    “Years of abuse and overreach by the judicial, legislative and executive branches of the federal government have obliterated the enumerated powers established by our founders and made a mockery of the 10th Amendment rights granted to the states and the people. That’s why I support the Convention of States Project to restore the original constitutional limits on federal power by calling a limited convention to propose amendments to reign in our out-of-control federal government.Click here for video.Rand Paul

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.
