Push Back Patriots – Convention of States

On this momentous day we celebrate our independence and the rights guaranteed by our founding fathers.  They were for the most part cognizant and intimately aware of the tyrannical attitudes from whence they came and world history.  Learned, thoughtful, completely dedicated to the cause of citizen motivated liberties and republican government, these men put their liives and hearts on line to birth a nation of independent, free thinking and acting individuals to guarantee generations to come rights free of tyranny, fear, hopelessness, and subsistence.

Each word of this document was carefully weighed and balanced with religious values, moral rights, and brevity of words to produce to the best of their human abilities one nation, founded upon morals, patriotism, and God’s words of promise and His commandments knowing that within those commandments were truths ages old. They in their wisdom considered a document meant to stand the test of time and assault by providing an enduring and singularly amazing document of governance  and order which has in recorded history never occurred before nor since.  It has stood as a beacon of hope and promise for immigrants around the world as well as countries looking for a better future.  

Now our founding document and way of life are under assault. Celebrating today should not be about fun, food, and a good time but a renewal of our determination and patriotism to a constitution and country by and for the people not any one individual nor ideology other than a republic.

I know I mentioned this in an earlier post but for those patriots that missed the information here is an active way every citizen in every state can push back the tide before the tsunami reaches us.   Letters to all state legislatures and government officials is needed for this to keep from being “lost” in manuvering by non-constitutional interests. I do not endorse groups or vigilantes as a personal general rule of thumb.  I do not consider this as either but rather an honest, legal effort to halt the continued and aggressive assault on our country by organizations funded either by foreign or domestic entities.



I’d like you to ask yourself a question: Are you more or less free than you were last year?

For my part, I realize that I only have half the freedom I had as a young man. And I think you would agree that we as a country are losing our freedoms every day.

Just like you, I was upset, but not surprised over the Supreme Court rulings that bypassed the Constitution and forced the personal beliefs of six individuals onto 320 million Americans. The Supreme Court is supposed to uphold the Constitution and the rule of law, not make laws. These revolutionary decisions show there is no longer any balance of power in the federal government.

When Benjamin Franklin was asked the type of government the Constitution created, he responded: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

The Constitution not only gives us a Republic, it also gives us a way to keep it—the ability to call a Convention of States to rein in a runaway federal government.

Would you like to bypass the Court with an amendment? Would you like to go one step further and put term limits on the Supreme Court justices? A Convention of States can help us do that. Our call for a Convention of States features the following topics:

-Impose fiscal restraints on the federal government
-Limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government
-Place term limits on federal officials (including the judiciary) & members of Congress

Article V is the only place in the Constitution where the people can take action against an abusive federal government. The Founders gave us this tool—now it’s time to use it.

We could become angry about these problems. But I’m resolved to respond not with anger, but with action. It’s time to actually do something to restore what’s left of our Republic.

In liberty,

Senator Tom Coburn (Ret.)
Senior Advisor
Convention of States


I am in no way pushing acceptance or participation but suggest all patriots investigate and make an informed decision as to validity and your own conscience.

Nothing is more precious than independence and liberty.” – Ho Chi Minh

“I believe our flag is more than just cloth and ink. It is a universally recognized symbol that stands for liberty, and freedom. It is the history of our nation, and it’s marked by the blood of those who died defending it.” – John Thune

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” – John F. Kennedy

    Well stated. I fully agree with the use of Article V. The States have lost almost all their sovereignty to the feds. Sadly, they let it happen. Now it’s time to wrest it back. It will be interesting to see if 33 states step up.

      In defense, the states had no clue how corrupt, and evil D.C. could become. It was out of some horror movie.

      • Uriel says:

        That it is upace. More like the twists of an intricate political action movie. Taking years to plan and move players around on a chess board.

  2. Kathy says:

    I have supported this effort ever since it started some time back. The problem has been getting the majority of the states on board. Some have said yes then waffled out later, while others had problems deciding who in their state had the authority to make that decision for the state.

    Personally, I wish they’d hurry it up – it’s the only way we have left, since it’s been made apparent that elections don’t change what goes on in DC.

    • Uriel says:

      I agree Kathy. My on state has been waffling. It placed the bill in an unrelated committee (by design on part of a few I am sure) which stalled any movement through our legislature. I am told it will be reintroduced again and pray this time it at least is given the same opportunity as any bill for proper procedure and consideration.

    • Uriel says:

      Me too Nox. One would think that it would be apparent and all haste done. However we all are aware that infiltration is evident in every portion of our country so it will always be an uphill battle.

  3. CW says:

    Sounds like a good plan to me!

    • Uriel says:

      To me as well CW. Wars take planning, if we succeed it must be on the principles we hold dear at least for the near future.

    Article V lost it’s power when the states turned over their citizen’s wealth when the income tax came into being. The federal govt has the wealth and the states need it so have become subservient to the almighty federal government.

    This needs to change.

    It might take a convention of states-I think it will.

    • Uriel says:

      I agree Tanning. If only people would plan ahead and consider the worst scenarios before they act. I know that’s pessimistic but oh how much better when they do not happen.
