This is the reason many Americans get involved with the Convention of States Project.
As Lavada explains below, the national debt will cripple future generations — unless we can do something about it with an Article V Convention of States.
“I’m volunteering with the Convention of States in the state of Washington, and I’m very interested in understanding and helping people to learn what our federal government is doing with our tax dollars,” Lavada said.
“The over 20 trillion dollar debt is too much funds to be left on our great grandchildren, our grandchildren, and many other generations of our future.”
“We need to be active in our state. If you are a registered voter please read and understand the history of our country in order for us to get back on track.”
Why should we call a Convention of States? Simple: to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds? We’d vote for the American people every single time.
So, what is it, exactly?
Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. Our convention would only allow the states to discuss amendments that, “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.”
