Convention of States!


Ten Days of Liberty - The Blessings of the Seventh Amendment

Welcome, patriot!

We are thankful to celebrate liberty this Christmas season, along with family and friends. Please check back each morning to follow along with the 10 Days of Liberty, or follow along on the COS Missouri Facebook Page.


Seventh Amendment: In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed 20 dollars, the right to trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

The blessing: you have a right to redress wrongs at a local level. Local control is a basic right which has been appropriated by various governmental agencies.

The Convention of States Article V resolution permits the development of proposed amendments which can help to rein in the federal government.

What areas of control currently held at the federal level do you want returned to state control? What can you do to make this happen?


Eighth Amendment: Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

The blessing: your property is protected as fully as your humanity. Isn’t the national debt equivalent to an excessive bail and/or fine imposed upon our grandchildren?

Our Convention of States resolution permits discussion of a balanced-budget amendment.

What property have you been stripped of by dictatorial government representatives intent on controlling your rights to provide for yourself and your family? What can you do to remedy this overreach?



Ninth 10th Amendment: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

The blessing: you have rights inherent in your humanity which are not forfeited because they are not defined in law.

An Article V Convention of the States can help to enumerate the rights which the federal government and its bureaucracy have been so willing to abuse or ignore.

What do you have which is being infringed upon by our out-of-control governing entities? What can you do to make this happen?



Tenth Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

The blessing: you have the right to decide what is best for yourself within the parameters of the laws established at the federal and state government levels.

We The People are provided a means of changing those parameters by Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

What do you want taken back from your governing entities? What can you do to make this happen?

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.
