WATCH: America is running away, we need to 'appeal to heaven'

Published in Blog on October 17, 2023 by Article V Patriot

Arkansas Senator Jason Rapert delivered a powerful speech at the Simulated Article V Convention in August, addressing the concerns about a "runaway convention" and highlighting the current state of America.

He emphasized the urgency of the situation, stating, "When people say that we might make a runaway convention, I'm going to tell you that America and Washington, DC is running away right now."

Senator Rapert's words underscored the belief that the need for change is pressing, given the nation's challenges.

He also invoked the wisdom of John Locke, advocating for an "appeal to heaven." This phrase, historically significant as it adorned the Washington cruiser flag, reflects the idea that in times of crisis, it's essential to seek divine guidance and take bold steps. 

WATCH:

Senator Rapert's speech resonates with the call to action and the shared commitment of leaders gathered at the convention, making it clear that the time for change has come.

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: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

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:
