The Founding Fathers were brilliant. They foresaw a scenario where the federal government would get too powerful and usurp power from the other equal branches of the federal government and from the states. So they set up a weapon so powerful that no king, dictator, or illegal president born overseas could stop it.
It’s called a constitutional convention called by the states. There has never been one in our history. There has been a convention called by the federal government–but never by a majority of states.
I think it is time we used this bomb the Founders gave us to combat the illegal overreach of this president and the communist Democratic Party who are destroying this country and everything it stands for.

A Convention to propose amendments to the United States Constitution, also called an Article V Convention, or Amendments Convention, is one of two procedures for proposing amendments to the United States Constitution described in Article Five of the Constitution. The other method is a vote by two-thirds of each house of Congress. According to Article V, Congress must call for an amendment-proposing convention, “on the application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States,” meaning 34 state legislatures would have to submit applications. Once an Article V Convention has proposed an amendment or amendments, then the amendment or amendments would have to be ratified by three-fourths of the states (38 states) in order to become part of the Constitution.
With 31 state governors now Republican and 24 states where Republicans hold total control, it seems that the wave sweeping the country could possibly get us to the level needed to call a convention. The issue conservatives have had in the past is messaging. If we can continue to educate the public on how conservative values and principles will bring real prosperity and freedom for all people in the United States, we can win this battle.
We can get a balanced budget amendment passed and stop this out-of-control taxing and spending by liberal politicians.
The public has seen liberal governance, and now they see it doesn’t work. It’s time to provide them a conservative alternative and show them how it’s done.
