Howard Dean Says ‘Wing Nuts’ Are Trying to Call a Convention of States

Published in Blog on December 05, 2017 by Unknown

I’m going to show you a Howard Dean video, but don’t worry it’s not this one:

Recently, however, he did something even more hilarious while in front of a microphone.  At an event at Flippable in New York City, he was asked a question about the Convention of States Project.  As you know, I’m the President of that project, so I was interested to hear his response.  Recently, Hillary Clinton flubbed some basic facts about it, so how would Howard do?

“The threat is the complete collapse of our democracy,” he said. “It’ll be full of special interests who will want to do all kinds of right wing nut jobs things.”

So, not so good.

What are “all kinds of right wing nut job things” exactly?  The last I checked most Americans want to restrict the overbearing, incompetent federal bureaucracy… But I must hang out with a different crowd than Howard.  After all, the ruling “elite” love the federal government like children love candy at Halloween.

Howard went on to say, “We have to be really clear about how to stop this.”  He said it wasn’t by writing a bunch of letters to the editor.  Instead, he said they were going to try to make sure that there were Democrats in the state legislatures.

Of course, the liberals are apoplectic because they know that a Convention of States is the most effective way that actual Americans (you know, the ones that write those letters to the editor) can actually save this nation from “political leaders” like Howard.

Watch the video below and hear the fear in his voice. That’s the sound of democracy, folks.

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.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
