Poll: Americans don't trust the government to tell them the truth about COVID-19 vaccines

Published in Blog on August 10, 2021 by Article V Patriot

From the beginning of the COVID-19, the federal government has lied, misled, and tried to manage the American people. 

Rather than treat us like adults, give us all of the information, and let us make our own decisions, the bureaucrats and politicians in D.C. have spread fear in an attempt to control how Americans think and what they do. 

The American people aren't stupid. They see through the COVID baloney, and they no longer trust their federal officials to tell them the truth about the pandemic.

But don't take our word for it. A new poll from Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group confirms this mistrust. According to the poll, over half of Americans are not confident the federal government is giving them unbiased information on the COVID-19 vaccines. That includes 72% of Republicans and 53% of Independents.

"Washington, DC has consistently released inconsistent, confusing, and conflicting information since the beginning of the pandemic. Is it any wonder that Americans are skeptical that ever-shifting announcements related to the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines are any different? Instead of focusing on so-called misinformation spreading among citizens—who are attempting to discern fact from fiction—our leaders should focus instead on being truthful and scientific,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action.

The federal government's lies and deceit are about to come back to bite them. The Convention of States Project has seen tremendous growth over the last year as more and more Americans realize the power they have under Article V of the Constitution.

Article V empowers the people and the states to convene a Convention of States for the purpose of proposing constitutional amendments. These amendments can limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints on Congress, and limit the terms of office for federal officials.

Did you know that there are 30 separate agencies in the Department of Health and Human Services, including the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA? Many of these agencies perform exactly the same function or overlap with a variety of state and local programs. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that significantly reduce the power and scope of these agencies and eliminate others altogether.

Americans don't need more health care bureaucrats telling them what to do. They need freedom and self-governance, and that's exactly what we can claim for ourselves with a Convention of States.

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.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
