Convention of States!


We the People flex their muscles: Gavin Newsom facing RECALL THREAT over lockdowns

Published in Blog on December 30, 2020 by Article V Patriot

One of the driving principles behind the Convention of States Project is that power should reside as close to home as possible. That's because We the People have a much greater voice at the local and state levels than at the federal level. While federal elections might garner more attention, grassroots Americans can enact real, beneficial change in their communities and states.

The latest example comes from California, where Governor Gavin Newsom is in serious trouble. As Mark Meckler explained on a recent Battlecry episode, Newsom is facing a recall effort that has gained momentum in recent weeks as California residents struggle under tyrannical top-down COVID-19 lockdowns. 

Organizers say they have 800,000 of the necessary 1.5 million signatures to recall Newsom, and the effort just benefited from a six-figure donation. 

This is why we want to shift the balance of power from the federal to the state governments. Generally speaking, average Americans have very little influence on what happens in Washington, but they can impact their state and local governments.

Fortunately, the Founders gave We the People a way to work through their state governments to limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government -- an Article V Convention of States.

A 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 return much of that power to the states and the people. If you're frustrated that the federal government has so much control over things like education, healthcare, the environment, energy, and business, a Convention of States is the only way to put those issues firmly back in state control.

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
