Convention of States

Monday, September 6, 2021

If you believe that we, as a nation, are facing circumstances that are restricting our rights and spending our resources faster than we can afford, are you ready to learn about Article V of our beloved U.S. Constitution?

Article V was designed to allow individual citizens and their local state government representatives the opportunity to counteract misplaced federal control and use a collective, common-sense approach by us, the governed, to determine the “good of the people.”

Our country’s founders knew if the federal government threatened our liberties, tyranny would result. They created the opportunity to call a Convention of States of at least 34 states to legally and nonviolently address identified areas of concern. Many believe current events support this Constitutional option to rein in our federal government, limit federal spending and promote term limits as the steps needed to get us back on track.

We, as Americans, know what inalienable rights we have been given and now, it’s time to exercise our Constitutional authority to make the chaos stop and restore order, peace and liberty for all. Contact the Convention of States at www.conventionofstates.com or 540-441-7227 to sign the petition, volunteer to help spread the word about Article V and support outreach to our legislators, who can put Iowa on that list of 34 states to move this forward. It’s time for courage and action so contact Convention of States today to do your part.
