Convention of States!


This Independence Day, remember the remedy to an unsustainable government

Published in Uncategorized on July 01, 2022 by Matt May

It is no exaggeration to state that, on this 4th of July, all American citizens are embattled. 

The United States has ceased to be a representative Republic. The rule of law has been inverted. 

Congress -- all of Congress -- believes themselves unaccountable to the American people who sent them there.

The executive and the administrative state halt productivity, choke innovation, and breach personal autonomy on pain of employment and well-being.

Such government – by self-appointed experts and self-deluded elite – is unsustainable. Seldom has the disconnect between the people and their representatives been so pronounced.

What is required of us is time, commitment, and devotion to the principles for which the embattled farmers sacrificed and took up arms against what was then the most powerful military force on the planet. Such are the principles of the COS effort.

An Article V Convention of States would begin to remedy this diabolical disorientation. This is a non-partisan effort aimed at returning the government to the sovereign citizens through our state legislatures as prescribed by the Constitution itself.

Let us read and listen to Ralph Waldo Emerson's Concord Hymn. Let us rededicate ourselves to the reestablishment of liberty.

An Article V convention that begins the process of returning balance to the federal government is the solution as big as the problem.

Show your love for America and you dedication to its preservation by supporting the Convention of State Project. Sign the petition!

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]
