In 233 years, our Constitution has survived secession and Civil War, slavery, numerous wars, pandemics, a great depression and other national calamities. No other constitution has endured this long. It established a government founded on the rule of law, the consent of the governed and sovereignty of the individual.
We have evolved into a society dominated and divided by government policies and actions. Our national debt now exceeds our annual GDP, Congress only serves its own political interests, and we have more government than we will ever need.
It is time for the States to propose amendments that Congress will not — term limits, fiscal responsibility, and less government. Sign the petition at conventionofstates.com to let your state legislators know you have their backs when they exercise their federal role in Article V.
Elect legislators who endorse this grassroots movement to save the Republic. The Constitution was made for a time like this. Trust it.
