Support the convention of states

We the people no longer have a voice in DC. Our so-called representatives, the ruling class, serve their big donors and the lobbyists on K street.

At the same time, the Constitution is not only ignored, but also trampled on by the president. And the Congress sits on its collective hands, thereby relinquishing their duty as set forth in the Constitution.

The only way out of this lawlessness is to support an Article V Convention of the States, whereby amendments can be proposed and then ratified by the states. Think fiscal restraint, term limits, etc. — everything that Congress will not impose on itself. This process is in the Constitution and its time has come.

Please support a Convention of the States.
