NC 2023 Letter Writing Campaign

Though we didn't have the votes necessary to get the COS resolution passed in the NCGA, we are still doing all we can to ensure our success in 2023. 

There are many things we need to do to make this happen. Making calls through Telepatriot to ask COS supporters to call their legislator is one.  Another is to take time out of our busy day to write a short hand-written not (typed if your hand-writing isn't terribly legible) speaking to why passing the COS resolution is so important to you. are becoming a thing of the past. However, we've found they have a far greater impact on legislators then phone calls and, particularly, e-mails. 

Please take time today to snail a short note to both your Representative in the House and your Senator asking for their support.  

If you're not sure who currently represents you in either of both chamber, please click here to enter your address and get their contact information.  

Once you have your legislators name and district number, click here to see where they stand on COS.  

Here are some suggestions for you to include in your letter: 

  • Your name and where you live. 
  • Thank them for their support of you and your fellow constituents in the NC.
  • Let them know that you are one of the XX,XXX+ COS supporters in NC who want to join the 19 states who have already passed the resolution to call for a convention.  
  • Explain in your own words why you support COS. Is it:
    • The National debt that has now topped $30 trillion and growing every day, saddling your kids and grandkids with debt?
    • Overregulation by the Federal government impacting businesses?
    • Career politicians who are more concerned with power and retaining their control in Washington than representing their constituents here in NC?
  • Let them know it is time for NC to join the other 19 states calling for a Convention of States using Article V of the U.S. Constitution to rein in an out-of-control Federal government and return power to our state legislature, where it belongs.
  • Let them know that COS supporters across the state look forward to supporting pro-U.S. Constitution state legislative candidates in the all future primary and general election elections. 
  • End by thanking them for their service to the citizens of State of NC.

In the words of Boris Epshteyn, "Color boldly, but, please color within the lines".  A kind, heartfelt message means a lot to everyone who receives one!

Thank you for all you do to advance our cause here in North Carolina!!

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.
