Help Wanted - America does not work without this kind of investment

Published in Blog on June 05, 2024 by Article V Patriot

No one wants to talk about more ways to spend money. Between gas prices, rising expenses, and the cost of homeownership, Americans find themselves besieged by relentless financial strains.

But what about investing?

An investment is a purchase you make today with the expectation of reaping a greater reward tomorrow. Of course, investing is not always financial in nature. Beyond monetary gains, it also encompasses the sacrifices made by patriots throughout generations who laid down their lives to safeguard the nation’s liberty. 

Indeed, this dedication to one’s country represents the most invaluable investment of all, and we are indebted to these heroes for their immeasurable contributions. They did not sacrifice their lives in vain—they made an intentional investment. They perceived a future in which freedom prospered, and they paid the ultimate price in order to obtain that future for subsequent generations.

But how do we repay them? How do we ensure that the freedom we enjoy because of them does not wither and fade?

By making an investment of our own.

Rarely, if ever, did the Founders speak idly. When they spoke of pledging their “lives, fortunes, and sacred honor,” they did so because they knew that this kind of sacrifice would be vital to sustaining the American experiment in liberty. The same still is true today.

Freedom isn’t free. By investing in the fight for American liberty, we stake our claim on a brighter, better tomorrow, a future for our country that our children and grandchildren can enjoy.

“COS is made up of [a massive grassroots army] of volunteers that are giving up their time and their talent,” said Melba, one of our monthly donors. “There are many worthwhile causes that we could be donating to. But for me, at the top of that list is COS because that organization of volunteers and leaders is working to protect our constitutional rights and to return the power back to We the People.”

“I believe that if we do not have a government that answers to the people, then there is no power,” she added. “That is why I continue to donate to Convention of States and I will do so in the future.”

Patriots like Melba view their contributions as more than just donations; they have become shareholders in the great American future. While others complain about the present, they help shape tomorrow.

What about you?

For just $1 a day, will you answer the call and invest in your country’s future?

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 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.

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