Calling a Convention of States

WHY CALL A CONVENTION OF STATES?

Simple: to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds? We’d vote for the American people every single time.

WHAT’S A CONVENTION OF STATES ANYWAY?

Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. This convention would only allow the states to discuss amendments that, “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.”

Fifteen states have already passed the Convention of States (COS) resolution. Another eight states have already passed it one chamber.

Here’s Texas Governor Abbott describing what it takes to pass Convention of States

What I’d love to see is an amendment requiring that all voters be citizens, that they be registered, that they show valid I.D., and that all voting to be accomplished in person (except under very carefully spelled out extenuating circumstances).

  1. What our governments are now enforcing is a system of eco-fascism. and its about time people wake up and smell the coffee.

  2. Coldest February in Russia in the last 9 years.

    Meteorologists continue to summarize the results of last winter.

    February 2021 was recognized as the coldest month of the past 9 years, said the scientific director of the Russian Hydrometeorological Center in an online conference held this Thursday at TASS. In addition, the average monthly temperature fell below normal for the first time during this period.

    For almost a decade, the last winter months have been either hot or very hot, notes Roman Vilfand. And this year will be remembered for its frost and snow abundance. From the western border to Yakutia, the temperature was 4 to 6 degrees below normal. The February anomaly allowed the entire winter to fall into the “cold” category.

    And while winter does not give up. Although it is already March in the calendar, the frosts are getting stronger again. In the Central region this weekend the temperature can drop to -18°C.

  3. 37 Things to Know About H.R. 1, ‘For the People Act’
    This is the headline news at Brightbart.com right now, all 37 items have to do with voting and it is Insane!

  4. Worst idea since Marxism! Once the convention is called kiss the constitution goodbye forever. We can not control the house or senate once we send “good people there”. And you would send the same kind of people to have absolute control over what little protections are left? Insanity!!

  5. this would be a bad idea. imagine the level to which the enemy would go to remove all protections. step one if people are serious – remove the 17th amendment and restore state appointment of the senate. that would go a long ways towards rectifying the problems in DC.

  6. This is the only peaceable way to force term limits and financial sanity on Congress. Please get on board. Call your representatives from county judge and commissioners to the president.

  7. I, for one, would like to see term limits imposed. 6 years total for the House and 6 years total for the Senate, for a total of 12 years possible. I would also limit serving as lobbyists only after a period of 8 years from last leaving office.

  8. Robert,
    Blockchain technology could END voter fraud in the US.
    The records would be decentralized and verifiable. If you aren’t eligible to vote the system would automatically kick you out and all the fraud would end. The results would be virtually instant. Mail in voting would end as you could vote on the blockchain.
    There are many ways to restore order, dignity and power back to the people where it is supposed to reside. Keep up the good work. We appreciate you.
    Sincerely,
    Adam

  9. Thank-you for posting this! I have been following the CoS for many years now. I want to immediately dispel the false narrative that this is a so-called “Constitutional Convention.” It is NOT! This process does not allow opening up the Constitution for all kinds of nefarious meddling. It is simply a highly-bounded, rigidly-defined, Constitutional process (Article V) to simply PROPOSE amendments, which would then need to go through a separate Constitutional process to be voted on by the states.

    • this is called the “amendment process”, like the “bill of rights” for example. so letting everyone into the room to “amend” the constitution without public access (pretty sure that will be blocked for efficiencies sake) would be a really bad idea given all the corruption and for sure outside influence. guns – nope – no longer needed we’re all civilized now that we have iphones. free speech – yea sure, except for… search and seizure – hey we all want to stop the bad guys right? probably half will be tossed as unnecessary, and a bunch of new ones added like – no electoral college so mass rule is now possible. etc. much better instead of the CoS would be an annual set of amendments going through the public process…

      just my 2¢

  10. Be careful what you ask for.
    Something like this won’t be done in isolation and you can bet the Chinese and other players will be working behind the scenes to get what they want.

  12. Here in Australia only citizens may vote and no one with dual citizenship may be a member of of the Federal parliament

  13. The Jewish populations of Europe in the late 1920’s and 1930’s knew Hitlerwas a bad egg. Many emigrated. First to France and England, if possible to the US. Many even went to China.

    Those that were left behind were scared and nervous. They made themselves feel better by saying things like “Its just a phase”. “It will pass”. “The world
    isn’t really crazy”. “We can wait it out”. “The civilized nations will not allow another Pogrom”. As we all know, they were wrong.

    Conservatives, are in the same position those
    unfortunate souls were. The only difference is, there is no place to run to. To quote Ronald Reagan, “this is the last stand on Earth”.

    Neither your color nor your religion will save you. The socialists in Germany exterminated many that
    weren’t Jewish. The socialist of today will do the same.

    I don’t know what the answer is.
    If I could go back in time and warn the people of that era what would I tell them?

    All I know is that if we don’t mount some form or resistance, if we go quietly into the void then evil will have triumphed and we will be complicit in our cowardice, complacency and collaboration.
