Prof. Natelson just wrote the most important article you'll read all year

Americans want real solutions to the problems facing our nation, and Prof. Rob Natelson just gave us one. 

In one of the most succinct, clear, and powerful explanations of the Article V process we've ever read, Prof. Natelson argues in the Epoch Times that an Article V Convention of States is the only solution to an abusive, power-hungry, and mendacious federal government.

Today, however, Congress is abusive. It revels in its power. And as an entity, it is mendacious: Despite repeated promises over many years, Congress still refuses to propose amendments favored by towering majorities of the American people. These include amendments requiring a balanced budget except in genuine emergencies, imposing term limits on members of Congress and on the Supreme Court, and curbing undemocratic and unfair regulations.

Anticipating this, the Founders included in the Constitution’s Article V a provision effectively granting state legislatures equal power with Congress to propose amendments. Upon the “applications” (resolutions) of two thirds of the state legislatures, Congress must call “a Convention for proposing Amendments.” This is a task force of state delegations with authority to propose pre-specified amendments that Congress refuses to propose.

In the full piece, Natelson explain why a Convention of States is grounded in history and precedent, how radical liberals worked to scare Americans into opposing it, and why Article V is the Founders' solution to federal overreach and abuse.

If you're going to send an article to your friends and family that explains why you support a Convention of States, this is the one to send. We also encourage you to send Prof. Natelson's article to your state legislators to encourage them to support the Convention of States Resolution in your state.

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.
