BREAKING: Sen. Rick Santorum Joins Convention of States Project as Senior Advisor

Published in Blog on September 27, 2021 by Article V Patriot

Rick Santorum spent 17 years serving his country in the U.S. Congress, but he never lost his commitment to conservative values, his love for his nation, or his faith.

Unlike many of his colleagues in Washington, Sen. Santorum wasn’t corrupted by The Swamp. He made a name for himself fighting for conservative priorities like fiscal responsibility and the right to life, and his presidential bid in 2012 reminded the nation that America still boasts statesmen of integrity and conviction.

Sen. Santorum’s unwavering commitment to conservative values makes him the perfect fit to follow in the footsteps of the late Sen. Tom Coburn and join Sen. Jim DeMint and Prof. Rob Natelson as a Convention of States Project Senior Advisor. Our Senior Advisors possess the rare combination of authentic integrity and deep political experience, and Sen. Santorum’s background and character will be invaluable assets to the Convention of States mission. 

“I’ve been good friends with Mark Meckler for a long time. I’ve watched the Convention of States Project with admiration, but now I’m excited to join this groundbreaking movement to limit federal power,” Sen. Santorum said. “The Founders put the Convention of States option in the Constitution for such a time as this.”

“Not only that, but they unanimously agreed that the states needed a way to propose constitutional amendments,” Sen. Santorum continued. “Thirty-eight states must approve any proposed amendments, which ensures that only the best, most popular proposals will be added to our founding document. As George Mason said, the states need a way to propose amendments in case Congress refuses to make the necessary reforms.”

“If you believe Congress will ever propose amendments that limit federal power, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you,” Sen. Santorum concluded. 

Sen. Santorum knows a thing or two about how Congress works. He secured his seat in the U.S. House in 1990 by defeating a seven-term incumbent Democrat. In 1994, he campaigned for one of Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate seats by opposing gun control and abortion, and he defeated another Democratic incumbent on his way to a 12-year career in the Senate.

None of this success caused him to waiver on his conservative values. On the contrary, Sen. Santorum has built his career on fighting for freedom, limited government, and local self-governance. He plans to bring that conviction and authenticity to his work at the Convention of States Project.

“Our system of government was founded on two basic premises,” he explained. “First, human beings, as bearers of God’s image, have rights that do not come from the government. Second, human beings are flawed and prone to corruption.”

“The federal government must be limited to protect our inalienable rights and to guard against the corruptions of those in power. I saw my fair share of corruption while I was in Washington, and I see the Article V movement as a way to combat that corruption and get our nation back to its founding principles,” he concluded.

We couldn’t be more proud to have Sen. Santorum join our team as a Senior Advisor. His keen political acumen, combined with his high character and committed faith, will help propel the Article V movement to the next level, and we look forward to working closely with Sen. Santorum for many years to come.

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]
