There is one thing that needs to be noted, all to many people do not understand the COS Program, and our team we are just people learning the Constitution and I have to admit I did not know that the Constitution was created for a Republic of America, not Democracy.

 Anyway, activism is a key element for moving COS forward and protecting it from control and at the same time bring into play the good with the bad issues. So for a long time my dad hammered the internet because of Government Spending, and as of now the spending is around $160 Trillion Dollars. COS picked up on the political battle to expose the spending.

 Convention of States- $127 Trillion In Unfunded Liabilities, The News Networks are paying attention, to the Anonymous release of the amount of funds borrowed by officials of the United States Government from the federal reserve.

First News update- From Convention of States-
Coburn on USA Today: A convention of states can restore our Constitution

Posted by Sen. Tom Coburn M.D. on April 30, 2015

The following excerpt was originally published on USA Today.

From the very beginning of our country, Americans have wrestled with how best to govern ourselves within the framework of the Constitution. Do we want a strong federal government, or a weaker one? Do we want decisions made closer to home, or in a faraway capital? Does the Constitution itself mean what it says, or have interpretations over time stripped it of its original meaning?

Republicans and Democrats in Congress and in the White House have agreed time and time again to keep spending more money we do not have to pay for things we do not need.

Today our national debt exceeds $18 trillion which equates to more than $220,000 for a family of four. That's in excess of $30,000 more than the median home price in this country. In other words, Washington has saddled every family in the country with a debt far exceeding their own home before they've even gotten out of bed in the morning, and that's before we even get to the $127 trillion in unfunded liabilities that faces our children and grandchildren.
