Convention of States!


'The states have the final say': WATCH America's Constitution Coach Rick Green defend COS

Published in Blog on August 25, 2022 by Jakob Fay

Rick Green, America’s Constitution Coach and Founder of Patriot Academy, recently joined the news channel Real America’s Voice to explain Convention of States and why the states must act now to call a Convention.

“We’ve never done this before,” said the COS endorser. “We’ve finally reached that apex moment where the federal government is so out of control it has to be done. I’m a big believer in this. In fact, I’ve said for 15 years in my Constitution classes, without a Convention of States to put the federal government back into its constitutional boundaries, we will not save the country.”

According to his official COS endorsement, Rick was initially skeptical about Convention of States, “but the more I studied it and the more I looked at the brilliance of the Founding Fathers and the safety net they put in place for an Article V convention…I came to the conclusion: this is the answer."

“This is absolutely necessary to restore limited government and constitutional jurisdictions,” he added in his Real America’s Voice interview.

For a concise, effective explanation of what COS is and what it’ll take to call the first-ever convention, watch the full interview below!

As the popular WallBuilders Live! radio host described it, Convention of States is “the tool and the only way to reset the table and put the authority, jurisdiction, and power back into the proper hands.” To join Rick Green and other trusted patriots, including David Barton, Ben Shapiro, and Gov. Ron DeSantis, in their support of COS, sign the petition below!

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.
