Convention of the States

This group is for discussion of the Convention of the States, Article V of the Constitution, advanced in the Mark Levin book, The Liberty Amendment.

Recommended reading, but not easy reading.  This concept is very thoughtfully presented and it makes clear that it is up to we, the people, to bring America back to her founding principles.  This is a good way to get that under way.

Citizens for Self Governance

YOU can help in forming a Convention of States

Ultimately, the success of the Article V depends on the citizens of the United States.  Volunteers will be the engine that drives this project.  If Americans are willing to sacrifice their time and energy, there is still time to halt the tyrannical abuses of the federal government. 

Interested individuals are encouraged to join our growing grassroots movement by signing up on the Take Action page. There, individuals can pledge to contact their legislators and will be notified when important volunteer opportunities arise. These opportunities include: 

  1. Volunteering to contact your legislators to support a Convention of the States

  2. Volunteering to attend a legislative hearing to support a Convention of the States

  3. Agreeing to volunteer for the next campaign for a legislator/candidate who supports a Convention of the States

  4. Donating to candidates/legislators who support a Convention of the States

  5. Donating to CSG to support this project

Don't Amend Unconstitutional U.S. Constitution

Changing the Constitution

Comment by Franklin Thomas Fiedler on August 6, 2014 at 8:28pm

I oppose the premise that the U.S. Constitution should be amended for any reason before repealing Amendments 14, 16 and 17.

I especially oppose amending the Constitution to balance an unconstitutional budget. I contend the budget is unconstitutional because it contains funding for federal programs outside the jurisdiction delegated to Congress from the several states. I specifically oppose recognizing “authorized debt” (HB 2305 text of bill page 2 lines 15, 17, 20, 30, and page 3 line 30) and placing the words “authorized debt” into the Constitution by authority of the people of the State of Arizona. I specifically oppose the implied power granted through this amendment from the State of Arizona to maintain accounting of the “authorized debt” with fiat currency generated from a compact of banks established as the Federal Reserve in December 1913.

Introduction of the words “authorized debt” into the Constitution after December 1913 makes the Federal Reserve the primary creditor for the United States Treasury with the express approval of the State of Arizona.

Why is gold and silver coin important? Because gold and silver coin cannot be generated by electronic data entry, written ledger entry, or paper bill issuance. It is money that must come from economic activity in the free market. But the Federal Reserve Act (ch. 6, 38 Stat. 251, enacted December 23, 1913, 12 U.S.C. ch. 3) is an Act of Congress that created and set up the ,Federal Reserve System the central banking system of the United States of America, and granted it the legal authority to issue Federal Reserve Notes, now commonly known as the U.S. Dollar, and Federal Reserve Bank Notes as legal tender .

In other words the Federal Reserve System can and does issue money in excess of deposits from member banks and thereby create by fiat money that did not arise from economic activity.

Our Constitution is a binding contract of limitation. Which means, only powers delegated to the federal government by the delegations of the several states constitute the enumerated and defined powers of the federal government. The binding contract of limitation nature of the Constitution is reiterated by the words of the 10th amendment in the Bill of Rights: “ The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Amending the federal Constitution grants more power to the federal government. Let's not do that!

REMEMBER:  if you want to participate in the hearings but cannot go to the Capitol, you can do that on the Request to Speak system.  If you are not registered on that system... those previously registered on ALIS have to re-register on RTS because ALIS has gone away... you should register.  From there, you can comment before the hearings and during the hearings. The comments show up on the computer screens of the Committee so they get it in real time.  If you can't get to the Capitol and want to register for that, please respond to us at and put RTS in the subject line.  We can get you registered and then you can go back and change your password.

ARTICLE V NOTICE: Today at 2pm, the House Federalism and Fiscal Responsibility Committee meets in HHR 1 to hear further discussion and possibly vote on HB2305, RE: Joining a Compact of States to Propose a Balanced Budget Amendment under Article V of the United States Constitution.

Comment by Linda Brickman on February 10, 2014 at 8:16am

As the lobbyist for Convention of the States Project (COS), I request that everyone please send an email and make a call to all the members of the Federalism Committee in the House and request that they vote YES on HCR 2027 on Tuesday at 2:00 PM for the Hearing.  If you can be there; please do so and bring friends.  You will need to come early to get a seat as the room is small.  Please be there by 1:00 PM.  This is about saving your Country folks.  What is more important than that.

Linda Brickman,

Lobbyist for COS
