George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and the other Founding Fathers knew that one day the federal government would forget their place and abuse their power.
So the Founders voted unanimously to include the Convention of States option in Article V of the Constitution, which allows the states to propose constitutional amendments that rein in Washington, D.C.
But that’s not the end of the story.
They had lots more to say about Article V, and we’ve included some of their thoughts (along with those from other American defenders of
liberty) in a new video. Check it out!
Now you have the opportunity to help the states and the people use the tool our Founders provided to limit an out-of-control national government.
Become an official Convention of States volunteer to learn how you can help pass our resolution in your state and bring this nation we love one step closer to securing liberty for generations to come.
“What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty …. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.”
– Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts
