WATCH: Get an inside look into the dirty money and backroom deals of The Swamp

BlazeTV (formerly CRTV) is shining a light into the darkness of the D.C. swamp.

In this third episode, congressmen give viewers an inside look into the pay-to-play structure of committee assignments, and prove that all each party cares about is lobbyist money.

"Renting committee assignments and chairmanships should be illegal," says Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie. "If you did this sort of thing in a city council meeting or a state legislature, they would perp walk you in handcuffs in front of the evening news."

"But it's legal here," he continued, "because who's going to make a law stopping us?"

The American people, that's who.

By calling and convening the first-ever Convention of States, the states and the people can strip D.C. of its power and return that power to those city councils and state legislatures, where voters can truly hold their elected officials accountable.

A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. Decentralizing power will make it much more difficult for lobbyists to exert as much influence and much easier for We the People to keep dirty money out of governance.

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 Handbook for Legislators and Citizens (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.
