AOC: "We're close to getting a Democratic majority in support of the Green New Deal"

Remember the Green New Deal?

The brainchild of New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Green New Deal would destroy the American economy in favor of marginal reductions in carbon emissions.

The bill would help the rich and hurt the poor, and cost a family of four tens of thousands of dollars. There's even good reason to believe that the policies are modeled after similar programs imposed by fascist dictators

Radical leftists aren't hiding the ball on this one. They've admitted that the Green New Deal is more about transforming the American economy into a Communist utopia than preserving the environment. 

But that radical leftist agenda may not be limited to the most progressive wing of the Democratic party for long. 

Ocasio-Cortez recently claimed that she's close to gaining a Democratic majority in favor of the Green New Deal.

"We've actually been creeping towards getting a majority of the Democratic caucus signed on board," she said in a promotional video for Rep. Ilhan Omar. "A lot of people think that there's only, like, two people on the Green New Deal. Uh, no, there's over a hundred members!"

With the Democrats poised to take control of Congress and the White House in November, it's imperative that we construct a firewall against socialism before the insidious ideology totally engulfs the Democratic party.

How? An Article V Convention of States.

A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can stop socialism in its tracks by clearly and effectively limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

Ocasio-Cortez and her allies won't be able to launch a government takeover of private industry, for example, if the federal government isn't allowed to spend money on anything under state jurisdiction. If federal power is limited to a small, contained set of functions (as the Founders envisioned), socialist policies will be impossible to implement.

Over four million Americans have voiced their support for the Convention of States movement, and 15 states have passed our resolution. You can join the cause by signing the petition below.

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 for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort 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 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 the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. 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.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
