Convention of States Process

Hello friends,

Are you concerned about the abuses of the federal government? The government regulates things they have no business controlling, there’s a massive imbalance between federal and state power, and the spending and debt is out of control.

But there’s hope! For the first time in many years, the people and states have a chance to check the runaway train of the federal government.

Article V of the Constitution provides a way for the states to call a convention for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution. Mark Levin has explained the Convention of States process in his bestselling book "The Liberty Amendments," and now there’s an organization that can turn an Article V Convention of States into a reality.

Citizens for Self-Governance (CSG) recently launched the Convention of States (COS) Project with the expressed purpose of urging and empowering state legislators to call a Convention of States. Under the COS Project plan, this convention would be called “for the purpose of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.” Only amendments that fall under this category would be germane and up for debate.

I wholeheartedly support the COS Project’s plan, and I hope you will as well.

I have desired to work with an organization that proposed solutions to our country's problems for many years, but have not found such an organization; until the Convention of States Project.  

This is not another Left vs. Right battle that we typically see on cable news.  The Convention of States Project seeks to unite all Americans under the banner of using a constitutionally defined process (Article V) to propose amendments that will limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

I believe a Convention of States is our last chance to halt the runaway power of the federal government and restore the Founder’s vision. This will be the most important project of this generation, and I hope you’ll consider getting involved!
