Information

Convention of States Project

The purpose of this group is to educate ourselves on Article 5 of the U.S. Constitution which allows state legislators to call a convention of states to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution that would limit the abuses of the federal government.

This group is participating with "Citizens for Self-Governance" which has launched the "Convention of States Project".

----------

At the Constitutional Convention, George Mason insisted that the states be given the power to propose amendments to the Constitution without needing approval from Congress. He argued that if the federal government abused its power – as he predicted it certainly would – it would never consent to any corrective action. Only the states could be trusted to rein in federal abuses of power.

----------

Join this group in restoring the power back to the states and the people.
