Constitution Deep Dive pt. 5 – Maintaining the supreme law of the land

Published in Blog on September 23, 2022 by Article V Patriot

As Constitution Week comes to a close, we must face the reality of where our nation stands today and how significantly endangered the people's rights stand as a result of big government. 

Article VI declares the Constitution the supreme law of the land. It makes the Founding Fathers' ideas into an officially recognized and dependable document.

This week, we've covered the Founding Fathers, the seven articles of the Constitution, James Madison, and the Bill of Rights, which you can find below. But at the root of all constitutional ideas is today's threat – government that doesn't respect and follow its own Constitution.

Constitution Deep Dive pt. 1 - The apex of western civilization
Constitution Deep Dive pt. 2 - A document like no other
Constitution Deep Dive pt. 3 - The Father of the Constitution
Constitution Deep Dive pt. 4 – The Bill of Rights
Constitution Deep Dive pt. 5 – Maintaining the supreme law of the land  
 
To this day, the rights and laws of our nation are all based on the supreme law of the land, however, there has come a point where sticking to the Founders' written words has become subjective.

Instead of interpreting the Constitution in its original intent, politicians would like to interpret it as a 'living' Constitution, one that evolves with the times. This convenient viewpoint has led to the government slowly but surely infringing on our rights.
 
Education is key if We the People want to maintain our liberties and God-given rights. An educated population can fight back against government abuses with wisdom and knowledge. An uneducated population – a faction of Americans today – allows the government to overstep its bounds because there's no realization when rights are restricted. 
 
History proves that knowledge wins, which is likely why Constitution Week goes unnoticed by the majority of Americans. We must change course and maintain our strong founding document before it's overshadowed and dismissed. 
 
Article V was written to help maintain an independent nation free from government abuses as well. A Convention of States will certainly cause government officials to abide by their oath to the Constitution, ultimately allowing all Americans to prosper.

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

I support Convention of States; a national movement 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 an 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 Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:
