Convention of States!


Name that texter!

Published in Blog on April 02, 2024 by Matt May

The creativity and enthusiasm with which the grassroots engages fellow citizens and legislators is one of the main drivers of the success of Convention of States Action.

Texting is integral to the success of communication and calls to action, particularly during a significant election year such as this.

We would like you to put that creativity and enthusiasm to use in helping to introduce a patriotic, Americana-themed character that will represent and promote our tremendously effective texting program.

The character will be based upon great figures in U.S. history, and we will be leaning on you to select our character's image. 

But [Fill-in-the-blank] the Texter needs a first name. And we need creative suggestions from you.

This is a two-part process: Suggestions for the name can be made until April 30. Come on back and vote for your favorite character on May 1. 

The inspiration for our character is drawn from the indelible image of Rosie the Riveter.

As you know, Rosie symbolized American women who manufactured munitions and other war materials in factories and shipyards across the U.S. during World War II. The concept originated with the smash hit song "Rosie the Riveter" that was composed in 1942 by songwriters Redd Evans and John Jacob Loeb. 

The "We Can Do It" slogan signified in part that all Americans -- no matter their role or station -- could and would devote themselves to victory over tyranny, a theme that resonates and inspires within the COS movement.

We hope that you are excited about the creation of our own American icon who, in the spirit of Rosie, will symbolize our efforts to engage and inspire calls to action via your texts in the coming months of this crucial election year when so much is at stake.  

Get those creative grassroots juices flowing and suggest a name or names for our texting character by April 30. Have fun!

Sign the petition to call for an Article V convention!

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.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
