Meckler: Are you willing to take a stand for your freedom?

What are you willing to do to take a stand for freedom?

Our country is in danger of succumbing to a small minority of people who want to eliminate your right to speak your mind. Fighting back against this dangerous trend won't involve physical violence, but it will involve patriots who are willing to face social consequences for taking a stand for freedom. 

"Are you willing to lead? Are you willing to take that risk? What's it worth to you?" Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler said on a recent Battlecry episode. "There's a lot to lose. I understand that. There's risk. But I'm telling you, if not enough of us take that risk, we're not going to save the country and we're not going to save the culture."

Fortunately, you're not alone! Millions of patriots across the nation have taken a stand for liberty, and the movement is growing.

"When you stand, when you step into the fire fight, other people will see that and join you," Mark pointed out.

A crucial component of this freedom movement is to eliminate the overreach of power-hungry D.C. politicians. We can't let radical leftists take the levers of power in Washington. But rather than vote for the "right" politicians, we have a different idea: remove the levers of power altogether. 

An Article V Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. These amendments can ensure that Washington does not have the authority to implement a radical agenda nationwide, and the states and the people have the freedom to govern themselves however they see fit.

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: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

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:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
