Ari: It's crazy how much debt America is in

Published in Blog on January 07, 2020 by Convention Of States

Ari Hernandez would rather have a Lamborghini than his share of the national debt.

Can you blame him?

As a young person, Ari is looking at a lifetime of taxes to help pay back the national debt. Right now, each taxpayer's share of the debt is about as much as the cost of a new Lamborghini, and Ari would rather have the sports car than the tax burden. 

And that's if Congress decides to actually take action. If they continue to ignore the national debt, Ari will have to deal with something even more troubling: economic collapse. 

"It's crazy to actually see how much debt we're in," he told us at this year's Turning Point USA conference. "Every person could have a Lamborghini. That's surprising."

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: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

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:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
