Americans are worried about their country's future. According to a new poll from Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group, nearly 80% of Americans believe the United States is in decline.
According to the survey, 76.8% of American voters believe American society and culture are in a state of decay while only 9.8% of American voters believe American society and culture are in a state of progress. Just over 13% are unsure.
"These horrific numbers go beyond politics to the heart of who we are as a nation and a people. Americans have always been fueled by hope and optimism, and now are united in disgust. Our leaders in Washington, DC are setting the tone, and clearly we need dramatic changes there in both parties in the next election. But ultimately, it is the grassroots citizens of this great nation— everyday Americans fighting to return us to our foundations—who are going to get us back on course," said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action.
It's no wonder Americans are depressed. The federal government uses its unelected bureaucrats to control our most personal decisions, the president acts like a king, and everyday citizens feel powerless to stop any of it.
But we do have the power to change course. Article V of the Constitution allows the states to call a Convention of States. At that Convention, the states propose constitutional amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government.
"By permanently reining in the federal government and restoring the balance of power between DC and the states to its original Constitutional design, we have an opportunity to change these numbers, now and for the future," Mark said.
