Mark Meckler: The US House is targeting Americans based on their political affiliation, just like IRS did to Tea Party

The levers of power in the federal government should not be used to target groups and individuals based on their political affiliation. 

We thought the feds learned that lesson during the Obama Administration when IRS cronies targeted Tea Party groups based on their conservative beliefs.

Well, think again.

As Mark Meckler explained in a recent appearance on Fox & Friends, the push by Democrats in the U.S. House to get President Trump to release his tax returns bears striking resemblance to the old IRS scam.

What's more, the same overreach that can force the President to release his returns can also be used to target other groups and individuals House Dems don't like.

The system in D.C. has been weaponized by both parties, and it's time to remind our elected officials that they can't use their power and influence to fight petty political games.

An Article V Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government -- including Congress.

For years, Congress has operated far outside the scope of their original authority by using bad SCOTUS rulings to legislate on everything from healthcare to the environment. Only constitutional amendments can reverse their decisions, and only the Convention of States Project has the nationwide momentum to make the convention a reality.

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 Handbook for Legislators and Citizens (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]
