Is our country in trouble? If you take time to think about it, our national debt and the division in our country are the biggest threats to the freedom of our next generation. As the Federal Government continues to grant itself more and more power, Americans are becoming less free, less secure, and more outraged.
Our system of government was set up with a series of checks and balances to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”. The founding fathers had the foresight to know that eventually a government would become tyrannical if it didn't have such a system to rein in excessive power. Article V of the Constitution grants the States power to put an out of control Federal Government in check, by calling a Convention to propose Amendments that would rebalance the Union.
A recent poll by the Trafalgar Group reveals 65% of South Carolinians favor calling for a Convention of States. South Carolina already has 19,375 people that have signed the petition to support a Convention of States. Calhoun County resident Michael Hill says he supports calling for a convention of states because representatives forget what’s important to their constituents once they experience the influence of lobbyists and special interest groups. Many of them succumb to the influence of Washington’s money and greed.
Watch this five minute video of our own former SC Senator Jim DeMint explaining how a Convention of States is the solution to restore the United States from a federal government that has been unaccountable for too long.
The Convention of States solution will be shared with Calhoun County Council on April 23, 2018.
