Did you know that, to date, there have been more than 700 applications from all 50 states to the US Congress requesting an Article V Convention be convened to adopt new amendments to the Constitution. Even now, 38 state legislatures (more than 2/3) have voted in favor of calling an Article V Convention and placed an application before the Unites States Congress. Each and every one of these applications has been summarily ignored by the congress in DIRECT VIOLATION of Article V of the United States Constitution! "We the people" are being denied our Constitutional RIGHT to call a convention through the legislatures of our several states. Our congress -- THE PEOPLE'S CONGRESS -- is derelict in its duty to adhere to the will of the people. They are ignoring this bounden duty and, as a result, are in violation of the very Oath of Office they swore upon their election and inauguration to Congress. I encourage each and every one of you to first, contact your representatives and senators and demand that they grant the application(s) before them to call an Article V Convention and then join the fight for this noble cause by becoming a member of the Friends of the Article V Convention a group of patriots committed to upholding our Constitutional Republic! The website is Welcome to Friends Of the Article V Convention . There can be no nobler task for each of us as citizens of this greatest nation on Earth than to hold our elected representatives accountable to their Oath of Office and to the ideas and ideals this republic was founded on. Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent; whether you are Conservative, Liberal or Libertarian, this cause is one for which we must each take up the banner and rally behind its clarion call! It is time that all men and women of good will and good conscience join this most patriotic effort. If we are to survive as a free nation, a free people and as a beacon of hope for all humanity, this is a calling we MUST heed.
