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 U.S. citizens, that all voters show valid I.D., and that all voting to be accomplished in person (except under very carefully spelled out extenuating circumstances).
