As the Convention of States movement continues to grow, Congress will be forced to make a choice: will they support We the People to rein in the abuses of the federal government with a Convention of States or will they maintain the status quo in D.C?
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham made his decision recently at the Poinsett Club in Greenville.
Lindsey Graham is asked about an Article V Convention of States and term limits for members of Congress. Says he agrees with "Tom Coburn and all those guys ... makes perfect sense to me."— Chris Pandolfo (@ChrisCPandolfo) February 4, 2019
A Convention of States "sounds good," he added. See for yourself in the video below. Sen. Graham's comments begin at 36:20.
Sen. Graham is the third member of Congress from South Carolina to support the Convention of States Project.
"I believe the only meaningful recourse for the ongoing abuses of power in Washington is to use Article V and call for a Convention of States," said South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan. "It will propose amendments that will rein in our runaway federal government. What I've seen from Washington is Congress isn't going to get it done. We must look to the Constitution and Article V, and return power to the people."
Former Sen. Jim DeMint also joined the Convention of States Project as a Senior Advisor.
"I realized that Washington will never willingly return decision-making power back to the American people and the states," DeMint said of his decision to leave D.C. and join the Article V movement. Convention of States is the only solution."
Hopefully, the South Carolina state legislature will follow their lead and become the 13th state to pass the Convention of States resolution!
