Convention of states needed
Our United States Constitution, the ultimate legal restriction on all three branches of government, designed for the purpose of protecting the unalienable liberties defined in the Declaration of Independence, has been increasingly decimated since the days of Theodore Roosevelt.
Congress has become a dynastic ruling class that recognizes no limits on their authority to regulate, tax or spend, often forcing the states to relinquish their constitutional right. The executive branch is illegally issuing endless overreaching executive orders and is unwilling to secure our borders. The Supreme Court has not protected the original intent of the Constitution.
There’s only one solution to restoring government to its constitutional limitations and restoring the rights which states, communities and individuals have lost to the government leviathan is the remedy provided by the Constitution itself. It is the entire purpose of Article V. Your state senator and representative do not have a more important priority than to draw up a convention of states application to Congress.
The nationwide convention of states movement is led by one of the co-founders of the Tea Party, the founder/leader of the extremely successful Homeschool Legal Defense Association and the pre-eminent legal expert on Article V. http://www.conventionofstates.com/national_leadership state legislatures are sworn to uphold the Constitution and are obligated to defend the rights of the people and protect the sovereign authority of the states.
A convention of states could propose and vote (one vote per state) on amendments to severely limit government on three fronts: Terms of office, Jurisdiction and Fiscal policies.
