JACQUELYN: People like me don't get heard because our representatives don't represent us

Jacquelyn could any one of the millions of Americans who don't feel heard or represented in Washington. That's why she's supporting the Convention of States movement.

As she explained to a Wisconsin state legislative committee, she drove two hours from her home for the opportunity to be heard by her elected representatives. She wants her state legislators to support the Convention of States movement because it's the only way to get the federal government to pay attention to Americans who don't live in a big city on the coast.

"I'm not an expert. I'm just an ordinary citizen. I'm here because I wanted to be heard. I feel like people like me don't get heard very much. It seems like our representatives don't represent us," she said. "They don't hear people like us. They mock us. They make fun of us. They call us deplorables. They call us Neanderthals."

"We just live in flyover country. We're not important. We don't matter. And that's very worrisome," she said. 

We wanted to highlight Jacquelyn's testimony to let her and the rest of the American grassroots know that we hear you! But we don't just listen and sympathize--we have a plan to make Washington hear you, too.

An Article V Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court don't have any say in the process. But these amendments can drastically change the way Washington does business.

States can propose amendments that mandate a balanced budget, limit the terms of office for federal officials, and eliminate the deep state by restricting the federal government's jurisdiction and spending power. If We the People call a Convention and propose these amendments, you can bet the federal government will sit up and take notice. They won't dare insult us or ridicule us when we use our power under Article V to strip them of their authority.

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 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: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

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:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

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