The federal bureaucracy in Washington is out of control with a rash of scandals and regulations without oversight and accountability. We have a failure of leadership and an oversized centralized government which have not been responsible to the voters. It’s also about time our leaders obey the Constitution…..The Law Of The Land.
Fortunately, the States possess the authority under Article V of the U.S. Constitution to reorganize the power structure and stop the spending spree and the power grabs by our government agencies and the Federal courts. Article V allows the States to call a convention to propose amendments to the Constitution with a single subject matter, “to Limit The Power and Jurisdiction of the Federal Government.”
After two-thirds of the States agree, a convention will be convened to discuss, debate and vote only on amendments germane to the subject matter, without the President, Vice President, the Congress, the Governors or the Supreme Court involved in the process.
The non-partisan Convention Of States project will add amendments to the existing Constitution to return many authoritative powers to the states and change the battleground from Washington to our local communities
Some subject matter examples: A Balanced Budget; Term Limits for Government Officials; Limits On Spending; Fair Tax; Redefinition of the Commerce Clause and the General Welfare Clause, and more.
We are at a crossroads, as the existing path leads to escalating power, ultimately resulting in financial ruin. The Article V alternative leads to freedom and preserving our liberty.
We Americans are tired of being ignored by our leaders, and I encourage citizens to contact their state legislators, friends and relatives about this project. Ultimately, it’s up to all of us, We The People, for this project to be successful.
As a project volunteer, I am spreading the word in San Diego County with a non-partisan educational presentation titled “A Solution – As Big As The Problem.” For additional information about the project, visit www.conventionofstates.com/ or contact me via email at LouObermanCOS@Reagan.com.
