Convention of States!


North Carolina Convention of States


Home Resources Process Calendar  Volunteer Blog


Our Mission.

Build an engaged army of self-governing grassroots activists in North Carolina.


Our Goal.

To call the first-ever convention for proposing amendments under Article V of the U.S. Constitution. 

What is Convention of States Action?

Convention of States Action is a non-profit, grassroots organization whose goal is to use the process laid out in Article V of the Constitution to pass constitutional amendments that will place term limits on federal officials, set fiscal restraints on congressional spending, and put limitations on federal overreach.


Why Call a Convention of States?

Washington, D.C. will never voluntarily relinquish power, no matter who is elected. It is time for American citizens across the nation to take a stand against tyranny and make a coordinated, grassroots effort to curb the power of the federal government. Only Article V has the constitutional power to repair the damage and halt the federal government from further eroding the liberties of the sovereign citizens. 


North Carolina has yet to join the growing list of states calling for an Article V convention! The resolution has passed one chamber in previous years, and the NC team continues to push towards the finish line, but we need your help! 

Contact Your Legislator.

It is imperative that your legislators continue to hear from you, their constituents, about your support for Convention of States. It is important that they understand that you, the grassroots army, are not going away. Additionally, this is a great way to start forming a relationship with your state legislators.

Yes, tell my legislator I support COS!  





Thank you for your interest in Convention of States! If you have any questions, please contact our team below, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible!

Physicians for COS

The diagnosis is clear.

We have a growing cancer today known as the Obamacare. As a result physicians are no longer free to practice medicine.

No profession feels the full force of the federal government more than physicians. The medical profession is the most highly regulated profession in the United States. The practice of medicine is controlled, taxed, and regulated to the point of being destroyed by the heavy hand of the federal government.

Physicians are told how to bill, how much to charge, and how to treat patients. They are mandated to use expensive electronic medical records. The federally enacted HIPPA (Health Information Privacy and Portability Act) makes the communication between physicians and atients burdensome, inefficient,and expensive. Every physician is required by federal mandate to register with the government to obtain an NPI (national provider identifier.) We are required by federal law to obtain and pay for a license to prescribe medication through the DEA, which is separate from our state licensure.

This heavy hand of government not only oversees the largest federal health bureaucracy ever created, but by extension reaches into every state, every city, and every small town to regulate how every licensed physician practices the art of medicine and how citizens obtain care.

The treatment is also clear.

The prescription for a cure was written into our constitution by our founders. Article V of our constitution allows for the states to call for a convention of states to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government through the proposal of constitutional amendments. Physicians should be the strongest supporters of this brilliantly-crafted states’ rights tool placed into our constitution by our founders.

I urge my fellow American physicians to join with me in supporting an Article V Convention of States to take back control of the practice of medicine. It’s the only way that we can return the practice of medicine back to the intimate relationship between a doctor and patient without interference by the heavy hand of a distant, national government.
