'Don't lose hope': Mark Meckler's advice to COS supporters

Published in Blog on August 28, 2022 by Convention of States

“Don’t lose hope" was Convention of States President Mark Meckler’s simple yet powerful message on the latest edition of the Battle Cry. 

“This is what the left wants, by the way. They want you to lose hope. They want you to give up.” Meckler warned. “They want you not just to be afraid but they want you to just say “there’s nothing we can do.”

Polling reveals Americans are increasingly hopeless, and despondent that the country is heading in the wrong direction. According to one of these polls, “when Americans were asked to describe where they believe America is today, the top answers were "downhill," "divisive," "negative," "struggling," "lost" and "bad."”

“I get it,'' the former Parler CEO said, “because sometimes it feels like there’s nothing we can do. Sometimes the craziness of the Biden administration, the regulations coming, their intent to create inflation… the student loan forgiveness quote, unquote… the crushing of our energy industry, the hurting of regular Americans - sometimes it makes you want to give up.”

But Mark didn’t stop there. He went on to say “I get that you might want to give up, but you can not lose hope. Hope is the fuel that keeps us alive. More than anything else, we have to have hope to stay alive and I have hope for the nation…. I always have hope because of my faith, because I’m saved, so I know that's the eternal hope. But I also have worldly hope: I have hope for our nation.

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.
