Convention of States!


Mark Levin: State legislators have a duty to save this country using Article V

Published in Blog on February 23, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

"If you claim you're a constitutionalist, and then you start cherry-picking the parts that you don't like, then you're not a constitutionalist. You're a leftist," Mark Levin said live on his radio show Wednesday night. 

Convention of States President Mark Meckler joined Levin to discuss the progress of Convention of States and the battle to overcome opposition in some heavily-conservative state legislatures like South Dakota. 

Meckler described how some legislators in leadership positions become "petty tyrants" insistent on blocking the COS Resolution from entering the floor for a vote.

"We've got a legislator in the leadership, Schoenbeck is his name. He's the new king I would guess, King Schoenbeck," said Meckler. "I think we have the votes in the South Dakota legislature. He killed us this year, wouldn't let it get out of committee."

Levin put pressure on state legislators, calling it their duty under the Constitution to fix the mess in Washington.

"It is the constitutional system," he defended. "As far as the state legislators go, they have a responsibility. They have a duty under the federal Constitution under Article V to help save this country."

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.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
