A Letter to All Americans: Uniting for an Article V Convention and Our Nation's Future

Published in Blog on July 26, 2023 by Nicole Rardin

Dear fellow Americans,

Today, our nation stands at a critical juncture, and the time has come for us to unite as one, shoulder to shoulder, and demand an Article V convention. This is not a call exclusive to any political party or ideology; it is a rallying cry for every American who believes in the power of democracy and the need for real change.

Our country's founders, with unwavering foresight, embedded the mechanism of an Article V convention within our Constitution. They intended it as a powerful tool to ensure that the people retain the right to self-governance and shape the destiny of our great nation.

Term limits, fiscal restraints, and the balance of power are not partisan issues; they are quintessential to preserving the principles upon which America was built. We must break free from the chains of career politicians and embrace fresh perspectives and ideas to secure true representation of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Our national debt weighs heavily on the shoulders of future generations. By demanding fiscal restraints, we can show our commitment to responsible governance and safeguard the financial well-being of America's future.

Moreover, the balance of power between the legislative and executive branches is vital to the success of our democracy. Let us reclaim the equilibrium that our framers envisioned, ensuring that no single branch dominates and that checks and balances are the cornerstone of our governance.

Standing together for an Article V convention is a nonpartisan endeavor that transcends political divisions. It is a testament to our shared values of liberty, justice, and equality. Let us embrace this historic opportunity to honor our country's framers' intent and secure the right to self-governance that they entrusted to us.

Join us now in fighting for term limits, and fiscal restraints, and preserving our democracy's balance. Together, we can breathe new life into the American dream and ensure that it endures for generations to come.

Register to join the COSF live stream of its Simulated Article V Convention in Williamsburg, VA on August 4th from 9-5 Eastern. Let's come together and spark a roaring blaze of inspiration among the American people for what We the People can do. 

In unity and hope,

Nicole Rardin

Assistant Communications Director, COS
