Why I support a Convention of States

Why I support a Convention of States

As I’ve traveled the country teaching on the Constitution the last four years, I’ve talked about the need for an Article V Convention of the States to address the Federal government’s tyrannical abuses. I am so excited to see momentum building behind this idea as more and more conservative thinkers are expressing their support for this tool given to us by the Founding Fathers.

There are many conservatives who are afraid to follow Article V of the Constitution as a way of restoring the proper balance of power between the states and the federal government, so I’m going to be discussing this topic and answering their objections over the next few weeks in a series of posts. If you have questions you’d like to see addressed, just leave them in the comments below. To kick off the series, I’d like to share a letter I wrote with my good friend and mentor David Barton. David has also been giving a lot of time and research to the idea of an Article V Convention, and is appearing next week on the Glenn Beck show to discuss it. Watch this blog series closely. We’ll be announcing a special Wallbuilders Live! online telecast with David Barton, Rick Green, & Mike Farris to discuss the Convention of States.
