The “Convention of the States” Movement Against Obama is Exploding

Just a couple of months ago, about one hundred state legislators met at Mount Vernon, George Washington’s home, to discuss the possibility of holding a Convention of the States as an effort to fight Obama’s executive overreach.

As of now, multiple states are calling for an Article V Constitutional Convention in order to introduce a balanced budget amendment, term limits for federal officials, and reining in the power of the federal government.

Congress has always been the one to propose and ratify amendments to the Constitution; however, with their inaction and historically-low 9% approval rating, the states are taking the charge to fight tyranny. 

For this to work, at least two-thirds of the states (34+) must propose an amendment and then for the amendment to be ratified, three-quarters of the states (38+) must approve it.

It’s only been two months since the Mount Vernon Assembly and people are already taking action:
