Convention of States!


Is politics too important? John Legend encourages followers to donate to Dems in Georgia rather than charity

This election cycle has been filled with confusion, uncertainty, and doubt. But one thing at least has become crystal clear: national politics are too important. 

The latest evidence comes from American singer John Legend. Responding to a Twitter post from Mark Cuban encouraging his followers to donate to charity, Legend countered, "The bottom line is that the Senate flipping would be far more impactful than a food bank donation. We need massive stimulus and aid to individuals and small businesses. Government needs to do this. Charity isn’t sufficient."

Here's the worst part: there's a kernel of truth to what Legend is saying.

The federal government has grown so large and so powerful that its influence dwarfs the influence of nearly every other American institution, including charities. If Democrats gain control of Congress and the White House, they can enact changes that will affect each and every American citizen. They can alter the face of our country for generations and supersede the will of the people and the states.

It's time to change the status quo. The federal government won't limit itself, which is why the people and the states must join together and call the first-ever Article V Convention of States.

A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the size, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. These amendments can return the majority of power to the states and the people and get national politics out of our daily lives. 

We shouldn't have to worry about one party in Washington changing our country forever. We should worry about what's happening in our local communities, and be empowered to help through local government, community groups, and charities.

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
