State Legislators Solemn Duty, to Protect Citizens from the Federal Leviathan

This week, 42 state legislatures convene; 34 of them will be able to support and pass the biggest bill of their lifetime; an Article V single-subject Application calling for a Convention of the States proposing amendments to rein in the federal government.

We, the People, are on the cusp of history and the question before us, as our legislators are sworn in this week to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States and of this state, so help me God.”

Legislators hold the specific constitutional power to enter into an amending convention with the other states to rein in an out of control federal government. Article V tells YOU—the legislator, that it is your duty to protect citizens from an abusive federal government.

Our nation hangs in the balance and our state legislatures are the last firewall of defense to protect citizens from a growing federal state.
