Convention of States!


McCarthy gives full support to Convention of States during interview with Levin

Published in Blog on September 13, 2023 by Brianna Kraemer

Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy is 100% supportive of the Convention of States movement, he revealed on Mark Levin's radio show Tuesday night. 

McCarthy launched a formal impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden on Tuesday for allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. When discussing the possibility of term limits and a balanced budget, Levin said there's no way Congress will ever vote to restrict itself, which is why the Convention of States movement is the one true solution.

"If you really support term limits and a balanced budget, you want to amend the Constitution, you're not going to get it through Congress," Levin contended. "It has to be Article V, the second method of amending the Constitution, correct?"

"Correct," McCarthy said. "It only takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed."

Levin asked McCarthy if he is a supporter of Convention of States, to which he replied: "I support it 100%."

Listing today's current political hot topics including the New Mexico governor's attempt to invalidate the Second Amendment, McCarthy said, "This is why there's a big movement on the Article V for a convention."

The only way to shrink the federal government back to its intended size and power is through the states. Levin understands this reality as a long-time supporter of Convention of States. If Congress attempts to implement power-restricting amendments, they won't go anywhere. It's a showman vote.

"I'm one of the big movers and shakers, me and a handful of others. And we believe this very strongly," Levin added. 

Other powerful endorsers of Convention of States include Charlie Kirk, Ben Shapiro, Sen. Rand Paul, and Sen. Marco Rubio. The movement seeks to gather the states together as authorized under Article V of the Constitution to rein in the federal government through constitutional amendments.

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.
