Convention of States and the Compact for America (CFA) project seek to use Article V of the US Constitution, as intendedby the Framers, to rein in our runaway federal government. While they are separately run projects, COS and CFA are complementary and implicitly allied, as discussed here.
It is still a surprise to most Americans to learn that our own state legislatures can amend the Constitution without the permission or approval of Congress, the President, or the Supreme Court. Details may be found in the links at the bottom of this article.
Godspeed to Arizona’s two “Kellies”, Ward and Townsend, and all other state legislators across our country who are awakening to the power of Article V to restore our republic.
Want to get involved? Visit the COS and CFA websites. Both gratefully accept donations, but what they really want most is grassroots involvement. Join either, or join both, and read how you can be part of this We-the-People movement!
