Veterans Coalitions Director

As a Veterans Coalitions Director, you will help recruit, welcome, and educate other US Military Veterans in your State, and be proactive in raising grassroots support with Veterans Coalitions groups in your state. It is truly an honor and privilege to work with men and women who took an oath to protect and defend our Constitution and our nation, not just for an enlisted time in the military, but for the rest of their lives. You are those individuals who, once serving your country, always serve your country.

Without a doubt, the Veteran is probably the most influential civilian over our state legislators. Most legislators are like the masses of American citizens who acknowledge, appreciate and honor those men and women who put their lives on the line for freedom, who risk all, leave all to serve a higher purpose than themselves. Therefore, we thank you for stepping up to the position of Veterans Coalitions Director for Convention of States.

  • The Vets CD will use the tools provided to recruit and train other Veteran volunteers within his/her state.
  • The Vets CD will build a relationship with his/her state legislators and try to influence them to support the resolution to call for a Convention of States.


  1. The Vets CD will work in partnership with all other state leadership.

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.
