Convention of States!


Yes, Mr. President, the Power IS in our Hands

Published in Blog on September 09, 2022 by William Siwek

As I write this, the most delusional and destructive presidential speech I have ever heard in my 75 years on this planet has just wrapped up.

President Biden gave his speech in front of Independence Hall where both our Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed.

This was not a rallying and unifying speech as promised. What we heard instead was a political diatribe.

He wants us to unite behind him only in calling his opposition a threat to democracy (as he interprets it).

I don’t agree with his assessment that legitimate questions about policies, tactics, and overreach are an attack on democracy.

Nor do I think it is his political rivals that are “fanning the flames of violence” and not respecting the Constitution.

What I see is an administration and bureaucracy that operates unconstitutionally.

They are the ones who are ignoring or violating all of the articles and amendments of our Constitution. With impunity, I might add.

They claim to be striving for a more prosperous nation while at the same time imposing taxes while massively increasing spending and regulations that will bankrupt our country.

They are setting up our children and grandchildren with problems that may prove insurmountable. We need to put a stop to this tyranny and madness soon.

The one thing in Biden’s speech I did agree with is when he said “the power is in our hands.”

Yes, the power IS in the hands of We the People as boldly stated in the Constitution.

At Convention of States, the largest self-governing grassroots army is growing to save the country from the entrenched deep state in our federal government by using Article V of the Constitution. 

Currently there are over 5 million supporters for a Convention of States across the nation. To date 19 of the required 34 states have called for a Convention of States to rein in federal abuses. 

Add your state to that list by asking your legislator to sponsor, support, and pass the Convention of States resolution. Also, be sure to sign the COS petition below!

The sooner we call a Convention of States, the faster we will get the country back on the right path to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

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 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.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
