Steve Deace: Convention of States could be the last chance for We the People

Published in Blog on July 28, 2020 by Convention Of States

31022 big

Our country feels like it's falling apart, and many Americans feel powerless to stop it. Our founding values are under attack, our cities are descending into lawlessness, and our "leaders" in D.C. don't seem to care about us.

That's why Steve Deace believes the Convention of States Project is so important at this moment in our nation's history. He met with the COS team in New Jersey, and he reflected on that meeting during a recent episode of his show. 

"One of the reasons... their movement is so important is because it could very well be the last mainstream outlet that is actively attempting to represent the values of millions of Americans in a political system where neither major party is interested in you at all. One of them hates you, and the other is called the Democrats," he said.

An Article V Convention of States can reassert our founding principles by empowering the states (rather than Congress) to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can restore the balance of power between the states and the feds, force Congress to be fiscally responsible, and get career politicians out of DC.

Joining the Article V movement is easy. You can either join your state team directly by volunteering, or you can sign the Convention of States 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 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.
