Convention of States!


WATCH: Meckler and Bannon discuss structural fixes & taking down the administrative state

Published in Blog on September 20, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

Convention of States is an offensive play against a system that continuously puts us one step forward and two steps back.

Radical progressives have created crisis after crisis that have left American patriots playing defense, but an Article V convention is key to deconstructing the administrative state – a leviathan that has grown to be a fourth branch of government, as put by Steve Bannon.

During an interview on the War Room with host Steve Bannon, Meckler explained his time in the Tea Party movement, which he said helped to make a difference but didn’t end up changing the structure of Washington and the deep corruption in Congress. 

“Back in 2010 we won the largest swing majority in the history of Congress since 1938. I believed everything was going to change and frankly, not a damn thing changed,” Meckler confessed. “The Swamp ate them alive…. Congress didn’t really change at all.”

But what was it going to take, asked Meckler. It was going to take fixing the structure of our system of governance, which is broken and unable to be restored by simply electing new officials into office. 

“At a deeper level, if you want to take on the leviathan, you’ve got to structurally do it because what’s happened is they’ve burned the Constitution,” Bannon proposed to Meckler.

Calling for a Convention of States is what will give us the opportunity to make structural changes to a system that won’t change from a new batch of elected officials every couple years.

“We need to say constitutionally, no, the federal government may not be involved in education, or health care or energy or the environment. These are things that were never intended for a centralized federal government and the only way to prevent the government from doing them permanently is to prohibit the federal government from doing them permanently," added Meckler.

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.
