Convention of States volunteer: This election is a turning point between freedom or socialism

This election is important. There's no denying it. And while the federal government needs long-term checks on its power only a Convention of States can provide, the outcome of November's election will have far-reaching consequences.

Convention of States volunteer and Virginia resident Dennis Dutton understands the importance of voting this year. 

“I think it’s a civic duty,” he said in an interview with the Central Shenandoah News. “It’s probably the simplest thing we need to do as citizens, not only understanding our founding and our Constitution but also understand the responsibility that we have as citizens of the United States to vote. That’s how we make our decisions on who is going to govern us and the permission we give to them to govern us.”

Dutton pointed out that the winner of this election will have the power to maintain our current course or move our country ever closer towards big-government socialism.

“I think we should dig deep and really understand what we are voting for,” he said. “I think it’s a difference between the continuation of capitalism and freedom of religion versus moving toward a much more socialistic country, which I don’t want to see.”

He's not wrong. Check out this recently uncovered footage from socialist rallies and protests around the country. Their agenda goes way beyond free college and free healthcare -- they want to destroy our nation and build something totally new in its place.

We need to fight back before these people take over our country. First, we need to elect pro-liberty, pro-COS candidates at the local, state, and national levels. 

Then, we need to call a Convention of States.

Only an Article V Convention of States has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. These amendments can stop the socialist agenda in its tracks, and restore power where it belongs: with the states and the people.

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]
