DOUG: Our federal government is so overgrown, our Founders would never recognize it

Doug Dorn is a husband, father, Army veteran, and son of an Army veteran. He's risked his life for his country, and he believes the United States is "the greatest nation this world has ever seen."

That's why he's so appalled at the egregious overreach of the federal government. 

In a recent testimony before a Wisconsin legislative committee, Doug named two ways the federal government has encroached on our liberties and made our nation worse: Obamacare and Common Core.

Obamacare increased the Dorn's premium payments by tenfold while also increasing their deductible. Common Core, which Doug's wife has experience with as a substitute teacher, has imposed "equitable" and "inclusive" propaganda on our students without improving their math or reading skills.

"The federal government is out of control in many ways and so overgrown our Founders would never recognize it," he said.

As Doug explains, the solution is an Article V Convention of States.

"After years of watching people speak boldly on the campaign trail and act weakly once taking office, I search for a way to truly affect positive change," he said.

He found the Convention of States Project and learned how Article V allows the people and the states to reduce federal power and re-take control of our country's future.

A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that would get the feds out of healthcare and make Obamacare unconstitutional. It could also propose amendments that get the feds out of education, eliminate the Department of Education, and put parents back in charge of their children's schooling.

Millions of Americans just like Doug have joined the effort in all 50 states. To get involved, sign the petition below!

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]
