Monday, the Convention of States Project picked up the endorsement of CR contributor and CRTV host Steve Deace.
“The hour is late for our constitutional republic. It is not alarmist or paranoid to declare our rule of law almost gone,” Deace said.
“One need only to objectively view the day’s headlines, with government gone wild and unelected judges appointing themselves a perpetual constitutional convention. With too few exceptions, both major political parties have devolved from protectors of the Constitution to its primary threat.”
“As I see it, the Convention of States may be the last chance within the system for we the people to form a more perfect union again,” he added.
Citizens for Self Governance’s Convention of States Project is a movement to limit the power of the federal government and return power to the states by constitutional means. Using Article V of the U.S. Constitution, states can force Congress to call a convention for proposing constitutional amendments if two-thirds (34) of the state legislatures request one. CoS is a national effort to rally grassroots support in favor of pressuring state legislatures to call for an Article V Convention and propose amendments to the Constitution such as a Balanced Budget Amendment.
“Steve Deace has been an unwavering advocate for promoting the efforts of grassroots warriors in Iowa and around the nation,” said Mark Meckler, president of Citizens for Self-Governance and the Convention of States Project. “With a mainstream media focused on disinformation, Steve’s acerbic wit and truth to fake news inspires all of us.”
Deace joins LevinTV host Mark Levin, Fox News host Sean Hannity, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, and former Sens. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., in support of the mission to “marshal grassroots support for a state-led movement to amend the U.S. Constitution.”
