Happy Constitution Day! Much has changed since 1787, but one thing remains the same

Published in Blog on September 17, 2018 by Article V Patriot

Today is Constitution Day. Every year on September 17, we remember the day our Constitution was signed on the same day in 1787. Much has changed since those 39 men signed their names to the greatest legal document the world has ever known, but one thing remains the same: the bravery exhibited by those men still resides in the hearts and minds of Americans across the country.

It’s those same Americans who stand today to defend the Constitution once again. Since that momentous day 231 years ago, elitists in Washington have warped the meaning of the Constitution to amass power and wealth in D.C. Supreme Court rulings have “amended” the Constitution beyond recognition, and the federal government wields near-unlimited power, well beyond what the framers originally intended.



That’s why millions of modern-day patriots have joined the movement to call the first-ever Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States is called under the authority of Article V and allows the states to propose constitutional amendments. Rather than alter the meaning of the Constitution, these amendments can restore its original intent by striking down faulty Supreme Court decisions. These amendments can limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, mandate term limits for federal officials, and impose fiscal restraints on Congress.

On this Constitution Day, let’s recommit to the plan laid out by our Founders, a plan that limits federal power and puts the people and the states in the driver’s seat. Click here to learn more or sign you name to the petition below!

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]
