WATCH: Bizarre Mitch McConnell freeze-up proves we need COS

Published in Blog on July 27, 2023 by Jakob Fay

The octogenarian senator from Kentucky, Mitch McConnell, left reporters baffled on Wednesday when he froze mid-sentence during a press conference, staring off into space before being awkwardly escorted away from the podium.

Footage of the incident quickly went viral on social media, with users pointing out the obvious: Mitch McConnell, after nearly four decades in the Senate, is too old for office.

According to CNN, McConnell has fallen multiple times this year, suffering on one occasion a concussion that put him out of Congress for weeks. Although he survived polio as a child and has long struggled with walking, the concussion, coupled with his freeze-up on Wednesday, has called into question his fitness for office.

Unfortunately, Mitch is not the only swamp creature whose capacity for service has been questioned. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 90, faces calls for resignation after a three-month absence from the Senate due to shingles. Even after returning, Feinstein continued to struggle with health complications, missing out on multiple votes. She has held her current government position for over 30 years.

And then there’s the 83-year-old Nancy Pelosi, who raised more than a few eyebrows when she defended Joe Biden’s age in a recent interview.

“He's a kid to me,” she awkwardly giggled. Pelosi is currently serving out her 19th term.

And, of course, who can forget ol' Joe himself? The 46th president of the United States has been in politics since, well… since a time when he could cavort with KKK members and promote segregation. I need not reiterate his well-documented history of gaffes and getting lost on stage.

Is there any question that Washington, D.C., needs term limits now? While the office of president is limited to two terms, effectively no one else in the D.C. Swamp is restricted in how much time they can spend in the capital, siphoning taxpayers’ money without even showing up for work.

Of course, we need not hold our breath and wait for Congress to term limit itself. The only way to do it is through an Article V convention.

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:
