Yes, Biden And Company Are Intentionally Destroying America

Published in Blog on March 29, 2022 by Shawn Fleetwood

Having been in office a little over a year, President Joe Biden has racked up some pretty significant accomplishments throughout his short tenure in the Oval Office.

Although unsuccessful in using the federal government to coerce employers to force their workers to receive the COVID jab, Biden's numerous achievements include:

  • Crippling domestic production of oil and natural gas, which has contributed to higher gas prices
  • Further dividing the country by blaming a global pandemic on "the unvaccinated"
  • Forcing federal employees to get the COVID jab against their will
  • Weaponizing his Department of Justice to target parents at school board meetings and label them as "domestic terrorists"
  • Restricting Americans' breathing on federal transportation through unscientific mask mandates
  • Signing several multi-trillion-dollar spending packages that have led to a four decade high in inflation and increased the national debt to over $30 trillion

Now, some of you may be scratching your heads and wondering how any of these disastrous policies and outcomes could be considered beneficial, let alone "achievements." But the reality is that for Biden and his administration, these are accomplishments to be celebrated.

The entire goal of the American Marxist isn't to implement policies that promote individualism and self-sufficiency (or prosperity, for that matter), but ones that encourage government dependency and collectivization.

As more Americans begin to suffer under rising gas prices and inflation, the likelihood that they will need some form of government assistance will dramatically increase, thus creating a situation where citizens need their federal government for basic necessities.

As the number of people needing government assistance grows, so too will the size and scope of the federal leviathan in Washington, D.C. Such a situation is exactly the outcome statists like Biden are hoping for, as it gives them more power and control over the people and their daily lives.

Luckily, however, our Founding Fathers provided us with the perfect tool to rectify such dilemma. In Article V of the Constitution, the power to call a Convention of States will permit the states to propose amendments to limit the power and scope of the federal government, place term limits on federal officials, and place fiscal restraints on the federal government. 

Doing so will not only help return to the power to the people where it belongs, but it will also restore America to the union our Founding Fathers envisioned for us all.

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.

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