  1. While most individuals and organizations on this list are from the liberal end of the political spectrum, there are some notable conservatives… at least there are those who label themselves as such. In my experience, every so-called conservative who opposes the Constitution’s Article V remedy does so from a place of fear and ignorance… fear that the amendment process could be “hijacked” by those who would harm our Constitution, and ignorance of the built-in protections against such a possibility, and of the iron-clad 300-year history of precedents that such political conventions enjoy. How can anyone look at the state of the republic, where bureaucrats in Washington DC make virtually all of the decisions in our daily lives and our state legislatures are reduced to mere agents of the federal government, then still call themselves “conservative,” knowing full well that their opposition to using the remedy provided by our Founding Fathers is the very reason we find ourselves, as a nation, in such a fiscal and regulatory morass? That remedy…? An Article V Convention of the States to propose amendments to the Constitution.

  2. Most excellent list of people who want the status quo and want Americans to follow the Supreme Court’s version of the Constitution instead of that which the Founders had written in 1787. With your permission, I would like to copy and paste this to my blog and give you all credit.

  3. Great information! I truly believe that the convention of states is the best idea to reign in the out of control federal government. They are not going to reign themselves in. We have got to get the power back to the people.
