Glenn Beck: "How can we keep the country from breaking apart?"

This is a fascinating interview.

Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler joined Glenn Beck on his radio program this week to discuss the progress of the Convention of States Project, respond to common objections to Article V, and explain how a Convention of States can keep our country from breaking apart.

"Federalism is a government designed for people who don't like each other that much," Mark explained. The Founders created the Constitution for a country that was divided much like we are today. The original 13 states didn't get along very well, but they united around a common enemy (England) and a common set of principles outlined in the Constitution.

"That's the beginning. We need to go back to the beginning," Mark continued. "And the tool that takes us back there is a Convention of States. We take the power away from the federal government, we give it back to the people and the states. We let California be California and Texas be Texas."

We can keep our country break breaking apart, but we must allow the people and the states to control their own destinies. As long as one party in Washington has the power to dictate how the other half of the country lives their lives, we'll continue to see the division and violence that has marked the last year.

If you want to get involved in the Convention of States movement, there's never been a better time. Fifteen states are on board. We need another 19 states to call the first-ever Convention of States, and as Mark noted in the video above, we believe another 6-10 states will pass it this year.

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.
