Morton Blackwell, influential conservative political leader and Republican Party of Virginia Executive Committee member, recently announced his support for Convention of States Project’s nationwide effort to preserve our constitutional republic.
I join Mike Farris and Mark Levin in support of a convention of the states under Article V of the U.S. Constitution. Some constitutional changes must be made. Nothing less will remove the danger that a future, solidly leftist Supreme Court would “interpret” the Constitution to eliminate the separation of powers and checks and balances in government. The great American experiment with limited government would be over. Probably things would have to get worse than they now are for public support to result in a convention of the states. It’s wise to make ready now for when that time comes.
This key endorsement comes as the Convention of States Project’s Virginia team is ‘making ready’ in 2018 by fighting for House Joint Resolution (HJ) 49 and Senate Joint Resolution (SJ) 31, which set the ground rules on how Virginia's commissioners to an Article V convention will be chosen, instructed, and limited.
Join our team in Richmond on 18 January, where former U.S. Senator Jim DeMint will lead our Rally for the Republic and help us persuade the General Assembly to heed Morton Blackwell’s sage advice to “make ready now.”
