Take Back America
NOW is the Time for
States to Exercise This Long-Dormant Power
“. . . on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments. . .”
Article V – United States Constitution
The case is made perfectly clear. It is well documented that this is a safe and expected option for states to offset the inevitable expansion of the Federal government and counter the natural resistance of Congress to do anything about it. The Founding Fathers included the "Subject Limited" convention to propose amendments to balance the power of an out-of-control Congress. Congress and the White House have been out of control for decades, but it is at this time that America has finally reached a tipping point.
Congress is not the only entity allowed to generate Amendments. We can use the other provision for adding Amendments to our Constitution, sinse Congress refuses to act. Article V enables State legislatures to call a “convention for proposing amendments.” This gathering is limited both in scope and authority, commissioned by the states and to address one or more specific subjects.
Given the current Federal debt mania, this is the perfect time to call for this constitutional option. The Founding Fathers created the State-based amendment provision for just this situation.

America has very few options left to turn this around. After suffering decades of out-of-control Federal taxation and regulatory expansion, we have this chance to change course. If this is ever going to happen, it needs to happen NOW.
We will do our part to help turn this country around. I believe with every fiber of my being that the average American will not stand-by and let this destruction of our freedoms continue any longer. We are the 75% majority that cares to leave a better country for our next generation, and realize that American-style limited government is the best answer.
This is not just an academic exercise for concerned patriotic citizens, like us. There is no future for America if we fail. I personally, cannot live under pervasive government tyranny, and no freedom-loving patriot that I know, would just let it happen, without a fight.
Lets' give America the chance for a better future. If the Founding Father could put everything on the line for the initial struggle to create this great nation, the least we can do is fight for its preservation and do our part.
Help spread the word. We are searching for action conservatives from all over your State. With a standard speech-outline to accompany a PowerPoint presentation, structured media outreach, Tea Party groups can be rallied throughout the State. There are literally thousands of people who are ready to take-up the mantle.
With faith in America and belief in our people,
”We may safely rely on the disposition of the state legislatures to erect barriers against the encroachment of the national government.”
