MUST WATCH: Nebraska volunteer: "We're not being represented. Our voice isn't heard."

Published in Blog on January 10, 2022 by Article V Patriot

Our country is at a tipping point. 

Washington is imposing nationwide healthcare mandates, criminality is running rampant, and our "representatives" in D.C. refuse to listen to or represent us.

That's what Nebraska Convention of States volunteer William Ernst told a legislative committee in his support for the Convention of States Resolution. 

"I see our country taking an unexplainable turn, where criminal behavior seems to be appreciated and rewarded while those who follow the laws of this country are persecuted... and afraid for their lives. What the hell's  going on here?" he asked.

"We're in a bad place," he continued. "We're so divided, so angry with each other. I don't believe it's over a color of skin or a lack of creed or belief that we all have. We're not being represented. Our voice isn't heard. Our concerns aren't addressed. We feel left out. I don't feel like I have a voice any more."

In the end, Ernst asked the committee to support the Convention of States Resolution because only a Convention of States can put our country back on track. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that limit federal power and put that power back where it belongs: with the states and the people.

At the state level, everyday Americans have a real voice in government, as William so powerfully demonstrated.

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]
