Convention of States!


Rep. Mark Meadows endorses the Convention of States Project!

Published in Blog on March 19, 2021 by Article V Patriot

We're very pleased to announce that Mark Meadows has endorsed the Convention of States Project!

Rep. Meadows represented North Carolina's 11th District from 2013 to 2020, and more recently served in President Trump's White House as the Chief of Staff.

During his time in Congress, Rep. Meadows helped found the House Freedom Caucus to fight for conservative, limited-government issues, and he's been a staunch defender of liberty throughout his career.

Now, he's thrown his considerable influence behind the Convention of States effort.

"Joe Biden and Congress continue to push a leftist agenda, even encouraging rule changes, to force their will on the American people. It is time for State Legislatures to use their constitutional leverage and pass a Convention of States resolution. It's time to rein in the power of career politicians," he said.

"We couldn't be happier to have the endorsement of a champion of liberty like Representative Meadows," said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. "Representative Meadows has a proven track record of advocating for fiscal responsibility and limited government, whether in President Trump's White House or as a conservative leader in Congress. His love for his country is clear, and we're excited to welcome him to the Article V movement."

Rep. Meadows joins dozens of other national leaders, thinkers, and legal experts in endorsing the Convention of States Project, including Mark Levin, Ben Shapiro, Sean Hannity, Gov. Ron DeSantis, Ben Carson, and many others. Click here to see the full list.  

The Convention of States Project was founded with the expressed purpose of calling the first-ever Article V Convention of States to limit federal power, spending, and influence. A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. Under the Convention of States Resolution, these amendments can limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints on Congress, and mandate term limits for federal officials.

Fifteen states have passed the Resolution, and 5 million Americans have voiced their support. To join the movement, sign the petition below!

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]
