WHY CALL AN ARTICLE V CONVENTION?
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 IS AN ARTICLE V CONVENTION ANYWAY?
Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a convention to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. Our 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.”
SO ARE YOU MAKING ANY PROGRESS?
You better believe it! Since Convention of States launched in 2013, we’ve been spreading like wildfire.
