Mike Huckabee has done a great deal in his time. He has been a Baptist preacher, a best selling author, a pundit, and the 44th governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007. He also ran for President of the United States in the Republican presidential primaries in both 2008 and 2016.
Now, he is a strong advocate of a Convention of States!
Recently, he appeared on On Life, Liberty & Levin recently to share why he supports Article V and the Convention of States Project.Watch the video below:
Sometimes people ask why we should call a Convention of States. The answer is 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.
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.”
And we’re making great progress. Since the Project launched in 2013, we’ve been spreading like wildfire. With over 3 million supporters nationwide, we have petition signers in every single state house district across America. We’re actively working in all fifty states to pass the Convention of States Application.
