Broken But Unbowed

Governor Abbott Announces Book on His Life, and the Convention of States

On April 4th, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced the upcoming publication of his first book, entitled "Broken But Unbowed", from Threshold Editions.

The book details the Governor's life story, and his promotion of the Convention of States as the means to combat an overreaching federal government.  The announcement comes just three months after the Governor's call for the Texas Legislature to join with other states in calling for a "Convention of States".

The Governor will also embark on a book tour to promote both the book and the Convention of States after the book's release on May 17th.

Abbott says "Fix the Cracks" the Supreme Court has Created

Governor Abbott came out in full support of a Convention of States to propose new amendments to the Constitution to "fixes the cracks" that the Supreme Court and Congress have created through years of rulings that have eroded and damaged the Constitution.  His entire speech yesterday was moving and inspiring toward an actual solution to the problem we face in Washington DC.  

Clearly Gov. Abbott has done his homework on the Convention of States Project.  It is time to listen to the THOUSANDS of Texas Convention of States volunteers and Gov Abbott in adding Texas to the list of states calling for the Convention of States!

Texas Action Prompt

Texas Action Prompt

The grassroots are the key to victory -- high numbers ensure success. So are you ready to talk to your friends about the Convention of States Project?

Join our team as a District Captain!

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every Texas state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.

It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.

Get involved today by reaching out to your state legislators. Don't know what to say?

More Powerful Than The Next President: Convention Of States Town Hall Will Discuss A Movement More Important Than The Election

Join Mark Meckler, Co-Founder, COS Project and Andrew Oldham, Deputy General Counsel for Gov. Abbott as they discuss Convention of States and ‘The Texas Plan’

Fort Worth, TX., September 19, 2016 – The American people are tired of rolling the dice on a new president every four years. Last night’s presidential debate revealed that—no matter how many campaign promises the candidates make—D.C. will never fix itself. On Tuesday, September 27, Texans will have a unique opportunity to learn more about how uniting behind an Article V Convention of States offers the most powerful protection against federal overreach. Convention of States Co-Founder Mark Meckler will be joined by special guest from Gov. Abbott’s office, Andrew Oldham, Deputy General Counsel, Ross Kecseg, Vice-President Empower Texans, as well as a number of local Ft. Worth legislators to discuss why Governor Greg Abbott endorsed the Convention of States Project, and how his “Texas Plan” to rein in the runaway federal government can restore the authority of the states and the people.
