Convention of States!


Hollywood A-listers celebrate Trump verdict, but voters feel differently

Published in Blog on June 03, 2024 by Article V Patriot

The ladies at “The View” are rejoicing, and celebrities around the globe are ecstatic—Donald J. Trump is, officially, a convicted felon.

“Guilty,” Star Wars actor Mark Hamill tweeted 34 times.

“GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES!!!!!” wrote “Hocus Pocus” star Bette Midler.

“34 is now my favorite number,” gushed actress Lynda Carter, referring to the number of guilty charges.

Meanwhile, at ABC’s “The View,” Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Alyssa Farah Griffin, Ana Navarro, and Sunny Hostin, in the words of one writer, “could not contain their excitement as they celebrated former President Donald Trump’s conviction.”

But, as these A-listers and elites rhapsodize about Trump’s “downfall,” polling has already revealed a gaping divide between the establishment’s views on the topic and everyday Americans’.

Unsurprisingly, 80% of Trump supporters said they would support the former president even if he was convicted, while another study found that 76% of voters expected the decision would not affect their vote.  

Polling conducted by Convention of States Action seemed to corroborate these results: across Instagram, X (formerly known as Twitter), and COS emails, an average of 94.2% of respondents denied that the verdict would impact how they will vote.

Another poll conducted by ABC News/Ipsos reveals that, while voters are roughly split about the accuracy of the verdict (50% believe it is correct), only 38% say the charges were not politically motivated.

But despite the deep divides amongst voters on this contentious topic, Hollywood stars and elite continue to act, laugh, and cheer like nothing’s wrong.

Ultimately, this is so much bigger than Trump; this is about ensuring Americans are free to act upon their political beliefs without fear of retaliation from a corrupt, overbearing administrative state. Thankfully, the Article V convention process—a constitutional solution by which the states can take power from the federal government and return it to the people—enables us to do just that.

If we want to fix America politically—and make our voices heard—we must call an Article V convention. Sign the petition below or visit to learn more!

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.
