Convention of States!


Levin: The administrative state (aka, The Swamp) destroys the rule of law

Published in Blog on June 18, 2019 by Article V Patriot

Congress has ceded its lawmaking authority to a group of men and women who are neither elected by the American people nor held accountable to them.

Mark Levin recently hosted an expert on this bureaucratic mess, and he explained how The Swamp is a direct attack on the rule of law. 

"When Congress delegates laws to bureaucracies, it's no longer deliberating," said Professor John Marini. "It's no longer doing what lawmaking was intended to do, which is public deliberation about how the laws are going to be made for the people. That's what public reasoning is.

"And for Congress to give that up is a terrible thing for a democracy. Because then, the specialized bodies use expert authority to make rules, and you have no real rule of law that is established by the lawmaking body."

If we want to address this crisis, we need to get at the root of the problem: the bad SCOTUS decisions that have allowed Congress to cede its authority to the bureaucratic state.

Congress will never reverse course, which is why the people need to rise up and call the first-ever Article V Convention of States.

A Convention of States is held under Article V of the Constitution and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can reassert the founding principle that the only group able to make laws are those elected by the people of the United States.

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.
