You might be surprised to learn that sixty-six percent of Americans still believe that Independence Day is one of our most important national holidays. Despite the rise of socialism and other un-American ideologies, millions of folks still adhere to the concepts that have made our nation great. 

Mark Meckler appeared on the show CrossRoads recently to discuss this very idea. While the trends towards big government are concerning, Mark still has faith in the American people.

"Socialism is rising. A lack of education about our founding is causing people to turn away from founding ideals," Mark said "But at the same time, I think the ideas of American exceptionalism and that the individual has primacy in our society are deeply embedded in Americans' DNA."

"So while the numbers are shifting, we still have two-thirds of Americans who believe in the founding ideals."

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
