Sign the petition

to call for a

Convention of States!


Now That You Signed The COS Petition

Thank you for signing the Convention of States petition. Your petition has already been sent to your state legislators. 

Every petition signed moves the nation closer to our goal of restoring a culture of self governance using the authority of the U.S. Constitution. Article V of our Constitution includes a process of proposing amendments through action of our state legislatures.

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.  

The states created the federal government and the states have a responsibility to exercise their authority to make changes necessary to stop federal overreach. Georgia, Alaska, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, Indiana, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona, North Dakota, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Utah, Mississippi, Nebraska, Wisconsin, West Virginia and South Carolina have passed legislation to have a convention to propose amendments for term limits, fiscal restraint and limiting the scope of the federal government. It's time for Kansas to join those states.

Here is what you can do: 

1. Help us add at least one more signed petition. Share Convention of States with friends and family. Tell them why you signed the petition. They can see more about Convention of States at This is the easiest way you can help.

2. Come to a local meeting. Watch this video. Here is our Grassroots Calendar.

3. Receive and open our email. If you did not provide us with your email address you can text it back to us and we will update your record. We know your inbox is flooded with junk, but we hope you recognize the significance of this cause. We want you to be informed. We may ask you to engage in communication with your legislators as we work to encourage our supporters and help those opposed to change their position. So keep us out of your junk folder. 

4. Follow Convention of States Kansas on Facebook. Like and share our posts with your friends. 

5. Join our volunteer team. We are recruiting leaders in each legislative district to help us grow the grassroots and maintain communication with their legislator. We also need writers and followup workers. We will provide you with training, resources and team support to achieve these objectives. See how you can volunteer. We need volunteers in your district to help us grow the grassroots.  

6. Set a reminder in your calendar to contact your legislators every month. Call or email to let them know why you have petitioned them. Find your legislators here or to find the contact information for your legislators.  

The Kansas Legislature must act to pass the Article V resolution in both chambers. Now that you have signed the petition, stay engaged and help us grow the grassroots across Kansas.

We are in this for you and all Americans, for Liberty!

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.
