Constitutional Moment :Article V

"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty."


In the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson told us that if the government begins
to abuse the rights of the people it is their right and duty to alter or abolish it. Article V is the method provided by the founding fathers to fix our dysfunctional government.

The Constitution is for the American citizen, and government is meant to be run by the people.The vision that the Framers penned so powerfully over two centuries ago in 1787.
"Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories".
~ Thomas Jefferson

Short-term politics are overshadowing the long-term interests of our nation. It is up to We the People to restore the federal government to its original constitutional nature. Empowerment must be returned to the people, government must be restricted from overreaching into the American people's lives, and officials need to be reminded that their role is one of servant, not served.

Government :

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people". Additionally and equally important as returning power to the states is returning power to the people. The Declaration of Independence states, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Government does not grant these rights but is established by men to protect these rights, which men already hold.

My Grassroots Thoughts…
Our federal government needs to return to Common Sense!

What an American government has no right to demand, an American individual has a right to refuse. You have a voice so let us bind together, making one strong voice, which the federal government will not be able to ignore. Some officials in the federal government are ignoring the voice of the American people and following after egotistical agendas, therefore, government has failed its people!

We cannot do this alone, but with the voices of the people from all over this Great country,like You and I !

We the People, can make a difference!
We the People, can let our voices be heard!
We the People, can stand up to the government’s infringement and say, “ENOUGH”!

"An enlightened people will never suffer what was established for their security to be perverted to an act of tyranny." ~ George Nicholas, June 4, 1788, Convention on the Ratification of the Constitution

May we keep one another and our country in our prayers,also keep one another enlightened to what's happening in our country.

When 34 states submit an application to Congress to convene a Convention of the States to propose Amendments to the Constitution, Congress shall set the date and location for an Article V Convention. The following states have already submitted their applications for a Convention of the States.
North Dakota
Missouri ( passed by their state Senate )
North Carolina ( passed by their state Senate )
Texas ( passed by their state Senate )
Utah ( passed by their state Senate )

Applications from 24 more states are required to convene a Convention of the States.

If a Convention of the States were called, the legislatures of the 50 states would determine how many delegates they would send to the Convention and how they would be selected.

I believe that the voters in each of the state Assembly Districts should be able to elect the delegate of their choice. Since California has 80 Assembly Districts we would send 80 representatives to the Convention of the States. Each representative would vote for or against proposed amendments and if the majority vote in the affirmative, that amendment will be submitted to the states for ratification..

Each proposed amendment that is ratified by a minimum of 38 of the 50 states it will become a Constitutional Amendment.Convention of the States Action Website
