Socialism alive and well as "Squad 2.0" heads to Congress

Published in Blog on November 09, 2020 by Article V Patriot

Last week we told you about the Democratic pushback against its radical socialist base and the encouraging signs that the American people are rejecting the big-government agenda.

We also said that we have lots of work left to do -- here's what we mean.

Democrats in Missouri and New York have elected a new crop of socialist representatives that may be even more radical than "The Squad" led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"Squad 2.0 let's go," tweeted incoming congresswoman Cori Bush (D., Mo.) to congratulate fellow representatives-elect Jamaal Bowman (D., N.Y.) and Mondaire Jones (D., N.Y.) on their victories. 

These three legislators were all supported by the same PAC that elected Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.), Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.). 

Here are a few of the policy positions of The Squad's new members, according to the Washington Free Beacon

  • Rep. Bush ran on a platform that supported the Green New Deal, universal basic income, and abolishing ICE. In recent weeks, Bush also championed the idea of defunding the Pentagon.
  • Rep. Bowman has explicitly supported defunding the police, and although he claims to denounce the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, Bowman has embraced the support of anti-Israel activists.
  • Rep. Jones also supports "defunding police and reinvesting this money in health, education, and alternatives to incarceration." The incoming congressman also supports the Green New Deal, codifying Roe v. Wade, and cutting the defense budget.

Socialism may have lost Florida for the Democrats, but the socialist contingent in Congress is growing. If we want to keep them from increasing their influence on our nation, we need to call the first-ever Article V Convention of States.

A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the power of the federal government as a whole. These amendments can end the threat of socialism by prohibiting -- in no uncertain terms -- the federal takeover of industries and sectors of our society. With these amendments in place, control over things like healthcare, education, energy and the environment will be left entirely to the states and the people -- where those decisions should be made.

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.
