As puppets on a string, we head to the polls every year to vote, and nothing ever changes. Our government seems to become more tyrannical each passing year. The faces and the names may change, but the elite ruling class stays in power.

Our nation is in trouble, and there are only few ways you and I can force change. Our Founding Fathers put in place measures that would ensure that all Americans could remain free for generations to come.

I’ve been giving serious thought as whether to join with this group of patriots, petitioning our state to enact its powers calling for a convention. I have concluded there is no other way. I am joining the movement.
