Americans are irate and disgusted with Washington, D.C., and polls show congressional disapproval at more than 60% (Reuters/Ipsos and Economist/YouGov).
Americans across party lines feel that our system of checks and balances has become dysfunctional, with unelected bureaucrats and lobbyists wielding too much power.
A U.S. President can be elected for two terms, totaling eight years in the Oval Office. However, more than 60 members of the House and Senate have been in office for at least 24 years, some for as many as 40 years!
Do these lengthy terms in office make any sense? Americans are tired of government overreach, a soaring national debt, and politicians who enrich themselves during their long careers in office.
More than three million Americans now support a Convention of States to reorganize the power structure in Washington, D.C., and preserve liberty.
The public is invited to a free nonpartisan presentation about the Convention of States on Monday, May 7 in Escondido. Everyone in attendance will receive Convention of States handouts and a current progress report.
