Larry Elder pens POWERFUL pro-COS Op-Ed

Published in Blog on May 02, 2022 by Jakob Fay

Popular conservative commentator and onetime California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder recently penned a powerful op-ed in support of an Article V Convention of States.

Elder wrote of the critical state of our union, warning against both sides’ unwillingness to do anything that could actually lead to meaningful improvements in Washington. Whether Republicans or Democrats hold office, the power and jurisdiction of the federal government only seems to grow.

Elder explained:


“Both parties spend. But campaigning to reduce, let alone take away programs is political suicide. And there is increasingly less discussion or even concern about the growing national debt. The only path forward is to tie the hands of Congress through an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that fixes government spending to a set percentage of our gross domestic product, with exceptions for war or natural disasters.”


If Washington, D.C. refuses to address the issues that most threaten our future, we ourselves must take action. We can no longer afford to wait for some political party or establishment to correct our nation’s current course, for as Larry Elder documents extensively in his article, none seem willing to do so. 

Thankfully, Elder has recognized the importance of calling a convention. “Under the Constitution, Article V allows states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments,” he wrote. “Thirty-four states must agree to do so. Last month, South Carolina joined, putting the number of states calling for a convention at 19. More than halfway there. It’s our only hope to stop the spending rampage.”

Larry Elder is just one of many Americans who supports using Article V of the constitution to call a convention of the states. From Ben Shapiro to Governor Ron Desantis to a massive army of grassroots activists, millions of freedom-loving patriots who are sick and tired of politics as usual have thrown their full support behind calling a convention.

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.
