CHATHAM, NJ - The Republican Club of the Chathams is offering an information session on a national movement to make use of Article V of the U.S. Constitution to call for a Convention of the States, 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 27 at the Library of the Chathams.
Washington is Broken – But We Have a Solution that is as Big as the Problem!
Are you worried about the decisions made by Washington politicians that are impacting your lives and future generations? Did you know that thousands of laws are being made by unelected government bureaucrats who do not represent New Jersey or our local community, or our personal interests?
More taxes collected by the IRS leaves New Jersey to fund other states’ pork projects and corporate welfare than we get back from Washington. If we could keep more of those taxes within New Jersey, we could close chronic state budget gaps, fund education, infrastructure, and social services here in NJ. Decisions need to be made by our local representatives: people who live and work in our communities. This is what the Founders intended when they wrote the Constitution.
The Founders included in Article V of the Constitution the provision for the state legislatures to call a Convention of States to propose amendments to the Constitution in case the Federal Government assumed too much power over the states.
Our presentation on the national movement for an Article-V Convention of States will explain the objective and procedures for the Convention. You will learn how you can be part of this historic grass-roots movement. Questions and concerns will gladly be entertained.
Come and bring family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. The nation needs all of us now more than ever.
