Gas prices hit record highs everyday for two weeks straight, where are our leaders?

Published in Blog on May 23, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

Gas prices hit yet another high Tuesday coming in on average at $4.60 per gallon across the nation. Prices have risen consistently for two weeks straight, an impressively awful look on the entire Washington political landscape.

Washington is messed up in its priorities and it’s clear it’s not a party problem, it’s a career politician and free-for-all spending problem. We all thought gas prices would eventually level off, but after half a year, things have just gotten worse. 

Since April 24, gas prices have not fallen one cent. Every day, the price has either stayed flat or risen for an entire month. It’s essentially impossible to find gas anywhere in the U.S. for under $4 now, but you can find it as high at $7 in parts of California

During President Trump’s last week in office, gas prices stood at a much more desirable price of $2.38, but have since risen over 90% since Biden took over the White House. 

And what has been done to counteract the huge increase? Nothing. It just keeps going up. Responsibility and accountability no longer matter in the federal government.  

The one thing the government is doing a good job at is diminishing the value of the national debt, which is over $30 trillion. At the same time, they are dragging us all down financially and devaluing every dollar we have worked for and set aside to save. 

Gas prices don’t matter when you can write off every plane ticket and Uber ride in and out of DC every weekend. 

For now, we’ll have to just keep waiting for prices to level off. 

It’s time we make a change, which is why we propose using Article V in the Constitution to get back on track. We can call a Convention of States and bring back the America we used to know and love. 

But before we can get to a convention, we need 34 states to agree to meet, and we are over halfway there. Once two-thirds of the states agree to call a convention, each state will send delegates to participate in a historic convention to discuss fiscal responsibility, term limits, and overall weakening of the federal government’s power. 

What are they doing now that’s really improving our lives anyways? We might as well give it a shot before it’s too late.

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: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

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:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
