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!
