Arkansas Senator: "What we're doing is the definition of insanity"

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

For decades, we've been trying to change D.C. by voting for "better" representatives and senators. We hope these men and women will get the national debt under control, limit the power of non-elected bureaucrats, and stop taking money from special interests.

But every year they disappoint us.

Arkansas Senator Alan Clark explains in the video below, it's time for a new strategy.

Thanks in part to Sen. Clark's arguments, the Arkansas Senate pass our resolution 19-13.

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.
