The most important answer to this question is, of course, you!
Convention of States volunteers across the nation are the engine that drives the Article V movement, and their work hasn't gone unnoticed.
Below you'll find a small sample of some of the national thinkers, leaders, and scholars who have thrown their weight behind the Convention of States Project. These men and women believe that Article V is the best way to restore a balance of power between the states and the feds, and they've given their endorsement whole-heartedly.
On the other side of the fence are radical Marxist groups, Hillary Clinton, and fringe groups like the John Birch Society and the Eagle Forum. These organizations and individuals want to keep the status quo, and they're willing to spread whatever lie is necessary to keep D.C. in power.
So, whose side are you on? To us, the answer seems pretty clear.
Senator Rand Paul
“Years of abuse and overreach by the judicial, legislative and executive branches of the federal government have obliterated the enumerated powers established by our founders and made a mockery of the 10th Amendment rights granted to the states and the people.
"That’s why I support the Convention of States Project to restore the original constitutional limits on federal power by calling a limited convention to propose amendments to rein in our out-of-control federal government.”
"I absolutely support the Convention of States Project, designed for fulfilling the Constitutional methodologies for protecting our rights. Article V exists so that the people have the final say, not the federal government. Yes, it can happen -- and yes, it should happen. We should begin by completely restructuring the unconstitutional federal executive bureaucracy; only Congress has constitutional legislative authority. Administrative agencies should not be making law. If you believe the people should decide instead of Washington, DC, then you should support the Convention of States Project."
The leviathan of today's federal government continues to grow unabated, pushing the people further away from our Founder's vision of self-governance. The Convention of States Project is the only constitutional pathway for citizens to save our Republic by restoring it to her citizens. Article V of our Constitution underscores the duty of active citizenship and I am proud to stand with millions of volunteers in this effort.
"The Founding Fathers gave us a foolproof way to rein in an over reaching federal government in Article V. If young conservatives want to take back our country, they will join me in supporting the Convention of States Project. A convention of states is the only constitutional way to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government and anyone who wants to give power back to the people will support this growing movement. After all, as we always say at Turning Point, 'Big Government Sucks,' and it's not going to shrink itself."
"I have whole-heartedly endorsed the Convention of States Project. I serve on its Legal Board of Reference because they propose a solution as big as the problem. And they are promoting state applications for a convention for the purpose of limiting the scope, power and jurisdiction of the federal government. And that’s what needs to be done."
"There's a solution in our Constitution. We have the power to call a Convention of States to restrain the size, the power, the scope, and the jurisdiction of the federal government. If you're serious about saving the nation, this is the best way to do it. Join the constitutional revolution with Convention of States Project."
