Dear Senator Ward and Senator Mooney,
I understand that you are working, in your State, to rescind the Convention of States (COS) that had previously passed.
Mr. Mark Meckler, the Founder of this movement, spoke at a recent community event that I hosted (video link below). You are likely aware of Mr. Meckler’s campaign to speak to groups (one at a time) related to this issue, as the information is not available through the media or conventional channels.
What becomes evident in this video is that those who become familiar with the COS movement become interested, and in many cases, side with the COS position. (Please consider that most of the people in the room videotaped were conservative, retired or semiretired individuals of ‘means’.)
The cause brought support, that evening, in the form of donations from every single person in the room. That is correct EVERY PERSON IN THE ROOM DONATED TO SUPPORT THE CAUSE!!!
I am not implying that 100% of Americans support this movement but at this meeting 100% of the 58 (older, conservative) persons, in attendance, meaningfully supported the COS.
I have no idea how you can think you are representing the interests of Americans by working to rescind COS? If your argument is that the Convention of States can have a “rogue convention” then that argument holds no validity due to the process that must happen back at a State level for any change to occur to the Constitution.
I am really curious what is your motivation is in attempting to undo this?
You response will be shared with the 58 persons that were present at the meeting (plus a larger group unable to attend) and we will ask that they share it with as many people as possible on social media and other forms. We discussed your actions last week at a meeting and there were emotions from disappointment to outward hostility to your actions and we would like to hear from your point of view why you are working to take power away from the citizens of America and allow the Federal Government to continue to have too much power that was never intended?
Again below is the video:
