VOLUNTEER: In three generations, our country will be bankrupt

Dean Jeffrey is worried. The volunteer for Convention of States Wisconsin has seen the Government Accountability Office's financial predictions for our country, and he sounded the alarm at a recent state legislative hearing.

"Our country could easily be bankrupt within three generations," he said. "The predicted debt curves are rising exponentially."

What's worse, we can't trust Congress to do anything about it.

"And yet the silence on this issue in Washington, D.C., is deafening," he warned.

Fortunately, as Dean explained, there is a solution. Article V of the Constitution allows the states to bypass a stubborn Congress by proposing multiple constitutional amendments to impose fiscal restraints on the federal government. 

These amendments can include a balanced budget amendment to lower the debt and eliminate the deficit. But they can also include amendments that cap spending and limit taxation. These additional amendments will force Congress to actually cut spending rather than simply raise taxes to make up the deficit.

With this complete package of amendments in place, we can secure our country's future and save our children and grandchildren from financial ruin. 

To join Dean and other like-minded patriots in your state, 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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
