Why We Need a Convention of the States

I want to thank my old friend Lisa Nelson and ALEC for inviting us to present our case for a Convention of the States whose purpose would be to reform our Constitution.
Why are we raising this prospect of reform to the fundamental law of the land? It’s because we are in the midst of a constitutional crisis the likes of which we have not seen since the Civil War. It’s because a political left which rejects the framework of the Constitution is now in control of the Democratic Party and is pursuing an agenda that has already destroyed key pillars of our democracy and will go on to destroy its very foundations if bold measures are not taken.
The greatest weakness displayed in defending these foundations by those of us who cherish them, is our failure to leverage the power we have – the power the people have given us – to stop the assault on our institutions and values.
For example, the signature legislation of the Obama administration – the Affordable Care Act – was the greatest assault on individual freedom and individual choice in our lifetimes. You can’t keep your doctor if you like him; you can’t keep your plan; and you can’t choose not to have a plan – the government’s plan. Even worse, our real goal is a single payer system - to have all 330 million of you in the federal government’s pocket.
Republicans promised to repeal Obamacare. For six years between 2010 and 2016, the American people elected Republican congresses to do just that. But they didn’t. Fear of the Democrats, fear of the media, fear of unintended consequences paralyzed them. The conservative dominated Supreme Court declared this unconstitutional socialist law constitutional. It took a bold president, unintimidated by the left and its media lackeys to begin to undo the damage.
