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?
The Convention of States Project is the most important movement in the United States since the original United States Constitution was proposed. This is a bold statement, but when one considers the significance of what the objectives are of the Convention of States, it is absolutely accurate. The purpose of the proposed Convention of States is exclusively to re-establish and unambiguously define the limited role of the federal government as intended in the Constitution. All three branches of the federal government have steadily expanded their powers beyond the limits set in the Constitution and they show no intent of correcting themselves. Therefore, once again American patriots are coming forward to protect the liberties and freedoms that our founding fathers and subsequent generations have fought and died to defend.
Many people throughout the country and here in Maryland are frustrated with Washington and fearful of the path our country is taking. Democrats and Republicans alike have realized that the political class in Washington is no longer responsive to its constituents, but rather to large corporate donors and special interest lobbyists. In poll after poll, the approval rating for Congress is dismal, yet the politicians keep getting re-elected with the support of their respective party leadership and large campaign donors. Marylanders should have more influence over the decisions made that directly affect our state. The Convention of States under Article V would allow Marylanders to regain their voice in the decisions which affect us.
