Washington's Attempt to Fix Supply Chain Crisis Have Been a Complete and Utter Failure

Published in Blog on November 19, 2021 by Article V Patriot

Last month, President Joe Biden promised to fix the supply chain crisis plaguing our nation and restart our faltering economy. 

His solution? Impose the heavy hand of the federal government to force ports and shipping centers to remain open 24 hours a day.

A few weeks, later the results of that scheme are in--and it doesn't look good for the Biden administration.

According to a recent report from The Wall Street Journal, the 24-hour mandate has barely made a ripple in our supply chain woes:

The Biden administration pressed ports in Southern California to open 24 hours a day to help ease supply-chain bottlenecks. The move has barely made a ripple.

One terminal at the Port of Long Beach flung open its gates around the clock for truckers in mid-September, from Monday to Thursday. But no trucks showed up, prompting the terminal to tighten the rules. In late September, it said it would open during overnight hours only if 25 trucks made appointments. Since then, those criteria were met only one night, and only five big rigs showed up.

Turns out, despite what some will tell you, the federal government can't solve all of our problems.

Our country's Founders imagined a national government with a narrow, limited set of powers. They designed this government to be able to function competently in these areas.

Unfortunately, over the last 100 years, Washington has grown to control topics well outside its constitutional jurisdiction. Despite amassing near-unlimited power, federal officials like Joe Biden fail time and again to deliver on their promises. When they do, they use it as an excuse to give themselves even more power.

"This time," they promise, "we'll get it right."

Of course, they never do. The federal government can't solve our problems, and it's time we stop expecting that they will.

Over five million Americans have already made that mental shift. They've joined the Convention of States movement because they know that the real solution to our country's problems lies in the people and the states.

An Article V Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can limit federal power and prohibit Washington from meddling in the economy, healthcare, energy, and a host of other issues. 

That power will revert back to the people and the states, who are much better positioned to address the complex problems in their local communities.

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.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
