Our November Guest


       Mike Faulkenberry

NC Director of the

         Convention of

         States Project

  Title:  “The Convention of States:  Returning Power to the People!”

​The Convention of States Project is a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the U.S. Constitution.  Article V gives the states power to call a Convention of States to propose constitutional amendments.  It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 states to ratify proposed amendments. Our convention would only allow amendments that “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints and place term limits on federal officials.

Why call a Convention of States?  To bring power back to the states and to the people, where it belongs!  Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. should not be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. Right now they do.  Who do you think should decide what is best for you and your family?  You, or a bloated, over-reaching federal government?

“Timid Men Prefer the Calm of Despotism to the Tempestuous Sea of Liberty“– Thomas Jefferson

We enjoy each other’s company during our luncheon meetings, of course, but it was brought to my attention that it was time to reiterate the reason for our existence.  So here is our mission statement, which you can also find on the first page of our bylaws.
