Convention of States!


Most Americans concerned about national debt. Here’s what you can do about it.

Published in Blog on January 13, 2023 by Jakob Fay

According to a new poll, 76 percent of likely voters say they are concerned with the size of our $31 trillion debt.

A further breakdown of the poll confirms that this is a bipartisan issue. The new poll reports that 87 percent of Republicans are concerned as well as 67 percent of Democrats.

Especially in this polarized age, there are very few things that Americans agree on; this is one of them.

Yet despite the bipartisan consent that we need to do something about our national debt, we can safely assume that Congress will stand idly by.

At every turn, it will continue to overstep its bounds, ignoring the hefty price tag attached to its unconstitutional expenditures.

And We the People will pick up the tab.


Congress no longer cares that it is driving future generations into debt with its reckless spending.

We can only imagine what the national debt, which has increased by $1.8 trillion in the past year, will look like a year from now. Ten years from now. When our grandchildren are starting families of their own. But it’s a safe bet that it won’t be any better.

…unless we call a Convention of States

Though our elected officials in D.C. are unwilling to make a change and save us from this massive debt, through Convention of States, we can impose fiscal restraints on Congress and the federal government.

It may be the only way to do it.

The Founding Fathers put Article V into the Constitution as a safe, effective way to stave off federal tyranny. D.C. has become so disconnected from the middle class in America–so intrusive in its demands of us–there is no question that the Founders would want us to utilize Article V.

As we head into legislative season, now is the perfect time to support Convention of States and pass our resolution in your state. Together, we can end the federal debt and tyranny.

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.
