Five days of Article V pt. 4 – The time has come to use the Constitution to save the Constitution

Published in Blog on September 15, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

Intellect beyond the scope of today’s clouded society foreshadowed a nation deprived of its rights and freedoms at the hands of government.

As history has proven, once freedoms are taken, they are rarely ever given back. For this, the Founders brilliantly created Article V to be a mechanism the citizens could use to take back their rights before America could ever become another fallen empire in history books. 

That time has arrived in the United States, where individuals are controlled beyond what was intended in the Land of the Free. 

This week, we’ve covered the history of Article V in the U.S. Constitution and how it has led to our historical movement to rein in the overreaching bureaucrats of Washington. 

Part 1 – The Founding Fathers' gift to future generations
Part 2 – 'One of our greatest men'; George Mason, the Forgotten Founder
Part 3 – The birth of a movement

The present day need for Article V is outstanding because the problems within the U.S. government are endless.

Can anyone actually say with certainty how many federal agencies exist? How about why or who runs them or what they do?

Can anyone track with certainty where trillions of dollars has gone in the past two decades in bills that are supposedly benefitting Americans? The one trackable item is the national debt, which stands at about $31 trillion, of which you, the reader, owe over $92,000. 

Undoubtedly, you feel angry and used, but there’s nothing that’s stopping Congress from continuing to tack on trillions of dollars to the debt – so they will continue to do so.

Our privacy has been encroached upon, our daily lives have been permanently altered due to 'health' emergencies, and our economy and society have taken a turn for the worse, all due to political power. 

Self-sufficiency has been replaced by subordination. 

This kind of power abuse is exactly why George Mason and the Founders agreed to give the states a way out by proposing amendments. They couldn’t predict exactly what would occur in the centuries to come, but they could easily predict the urgency for new amendments in the future.

Convention of States is rising to the challenge of modern-day tyranny by ‘using the Constitution to save the Constitution.’

  • Term limits need to be imposed, because it was never the objective to work as a lifetime politician while being paid at the mandatory expense of your neighbors.
  • Budgets must be created, because self-control doesn’t exist when an individual feels no repercussions for their actions.
  • Boundaries on the government’s authority must be enacted, because power evolves into a greedy aspiration. 

Utilizing the brilliance of the Founders, we can remain the Land of the Free, but it will take the brave and the relentless. 

Happy Article V Day from Convention of States Action!

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.
