Constitutional Convention

Article V, Amending the Constitution of the U.S. Constitution states:


  • The Congress, whenever two-thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or,
  • on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments,

which, in either case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified

  • by the Legislatures of three-fourths of the several States, or
  • by Conventions in three-fourths thereof,

as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress: Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the First Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.




There are two ways to amend the Constitution:

  • Congress can propose Amendments to be ratified by 3/4 of the States Legislatures, or
  • States can make applications (request) by votes from 2/3 of State Legislatures, that Congress call a Convention to propose Amendments which must be ratified by 3/4 of the State Legislatures or by 3/4 of the Convention attendees.

The purpose of calling a Federal Convention of States is to present to the state delegates proposed changes to the Constitution. We would hope that the delegates would come to the convention with their ideal convictions about the direction of the Nation. We would hope that they would discuss and debate the Amendments that we have put forth and the States have proposed. In no way do we believe that we have all the solutions or ideas.

Our ultimate objective is to bring together the wisest and brightest of those from each State to debate the future of our Nation. The strategy for the convention is for both houses of each State's Legislature to nominate an individual to attend the convention and the Governor of each State to nominate an individual (even themselves) to attend. Thus each State would be represented by three selected delegates but each State would only have one vote. The delegates would vote to approve up or down amendments to be referred back to the States for ratification. (Note: Each State must define the number of their delegates and how they are selected and removed.)

There is no way Congress is going to agree to amendments to repeal the Sixteenth Amendment which authorized the Income Tax on personal income or the Seventeenth Amendment which changed the election of Senators to be directly elected by the people. This is how Congress keeps control over the people. So it is left up to us, We the People, to initiate each State's Legislature body to vote for a Convention.

But will Congress call for a Convention? No they will not, unless the states vote to have one! Then Congress is required to call a for convention. This is now we can repeal the 16th and 17th Amendments.

Our movement needs volunteers and resources to get the message before each State's voters and their State Legislatures.

To make this happen is a long shot. If it could happen before or during 2013, the one hundred year anniversary of the sixteenth and seventeenth amendments, would be great for America.
