‘A shock to the system’: Tucker Carlson and Mark Meckler discuss Convention of States

Published in Blog on January 18, 2023 by Jakob Fay

Convention of States President Mark Meckler recently appeared on the Tucker Carlson Today show to tell the popular Fox News host about a grassroots-led solution to save America.

Carlson opened the show by discussing the effect President Donald Trump had on permanent Washington. He described how the Deep State hated him because he became a threat to their status quo. He then noted that an Article V Convention of States–by which the American people could limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials–would be a continuation of Trump’s “shock to the system.”

They both agreed that Washington will never give up power on its own. According to Meckler, the genius of Article V is that it completely bypasses the federal government.

“Congress has no say,” he explained. “The President has no say. The courts have no say. This was put in the Constitution specifically to allow people like us to wire around DC. The point was DC might break someday, and it might not be responsive to the people, and we might have to do something about that. So that's why this provision of Article V was put in there.”

Watch Meckler describe how a Convention of States would work below.

Meckler admitted that calling the first-ever Convention of States would not be easy. Just as they did to Trump, the Deep State will assuredly come after any threat to their deep-seated corruption and power.

But the fight for freedom, he contended, is worth it.

“Having the entire power of the federal government or state come after you, it's overwhelming. It's intimidating…. The question is, what are we fighting for? And what do we really believe in,” he asked.

“If we are going to save the Republic, it's going to take that kind of courage and that kind of commitment.”

Meckler praised the Convention of States’ grassroots army for enlisting in the fight to save the country no matter the cost. “This is the army,” he boasted, “that saves America.”

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.
