Convention of States!


Convention of States launches new, revised core values

Published in Blog on January 13, 2023 by Catie Robertson

Happy New Year, patriots, welcome to 2023!

Just as a Medieval knight resolved to maintain his vow of chivalry by laying his hand on a peacock at the start of each year, so too we Americans keep with the time-sanctioned tradition of reflection and resolution every New Year.

Join Convention of States Action in resolving renewed fervor for our core values!

In 2023 we will fight to…

  1. Preserve Constitutional Originalism: We adhere to the wisdom of the Founding Fathers as expressed in our governing documents, and to the original meaning of their language. We actively work to restore limited, constitutional government, federalism, individual rights, and America as the beacon of freedom to the World.

  2. Foster Responsible Self-Governance: True liberty requires personal responsibility and individual accountability. As we work toward a culture of self-governance in our country, we promote a culture in our organization that empowers everyone to take action, learn from their mistakes, and adjust their actions accordingly for the future.

  3. Cultivate Servant Leaders: Servant leadership inspires everyone to serve others and make a positive difference in their communities. We promote these principles through training and mentorship opportunities.

  4. Be Kind: We believe in the Golden Rule; we treat others the way we want to be treated. We seek to have positive interactions with others while being professional, respectful, and speaking the truth boldly and with love.

  5. Produce Meaningful Results: We aspire to produce a demonstrable impact on the restoration of America to its divinely inspired ideals, and the emboldening of people around the world to work for their own inalienable right to freedom.

  6. Revere Judeo-Christian Values: Our Republic was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, including that every individual is created in God’s image and endowed by the Creator with inalienable rights. It is the duty of the government of, by, and for the People to secure those rights.

With the guidance of these core values, we can create a culture worth fighting for while remaining a people zealous for the fight.

Regardless of what this year holds, these guiding principles– of liberty, service, self-governance, and morality– will be worthy goals to pursue. As John Quincy Adams truly said, and we here at COS love to quote, “Duty is ours, results are God’s."

Let us resolve to do all within our power to make 2023 one for the history books.

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.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
