“Convention of States GainingMomentum in Illinois.”
The federal government has overreached its constitution-ally-established boundaries and has its hands in almost every area of our lives. Our children and grand-children will inherit a bankrupt nation run by an unaccountable bureaucracy.
Article V of the Constitution allows us to call a Conventionof States to restrict the power and jurisdiction of the federalgovernment, effectively returning the citizens’ rightful powerover the ruling elite. Such a convention could proposeconstitutional amendments that impose fiscal restraints onthe federal government and limit the terms of office for itsofficials and for its members of Congress. Amendments thatfall under this category include: limits on executive orders,limits on federal spending and taxation, limiting the termsof office for Congress and the Supreme Court, and many others. Anything that curbs the scope and jurisdiction of thefederal government is fair game. What kind of limits would you impose?
The Convention of States Project is recruiting andmobilizing a permanent army of trained political activists in3000 state house legislative districts across the country. These district captains will each recruit 100 people, who willcall or write their state legislators, voicing their support for a Convention of States. In other words, we havemore than a general philosophy; we have a well-organized strategy.
Citizens are organizing in all 50 states to urge their state’s legislature to call a Convention of States. To getinvolved or donate to the cause, visit our website:
