There is a growing nationwide trend now to potentially convene an Article V Convention of the States to push back against the out-of-control federal government. About 100 state legislators agreed to meet at historic Mt. Vernon to hold the first official gathering to examine the specifics. Many believe (as I do) that the federal government will never reign itself in of its own accord, and that alternate steps must be taken to provide course-correction. To learn more please see HERE.
Approval ratings for Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court are all at record lows, reflecting the public’s dissatisfaction with a runaway federal government. Many are concerned about Washington D.C.’s culture of corruption, entitlement programs on the path to bankruptcy, and a complicated tax code and bureaucracy which stifle both economic growth and liberty.
With this in mind, nearly one hundred state legislators from 32 different states gathered at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon, Virginia, on Saturday. They met to discuss the possibility of a Convention of the States for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution, as described in Article V of the United States Constitution.
