Mark Meckler and ICOA members talk about the Convention of states movement.
Dear ICOA Members,
We are attempting to bring attention to the Convention of States movement and ask that members give this video a thumbs up on youtube and if you are comfortable – write a comment.
With this support it is likely the Convention of States Administrative Staff will distribute the video to its larger database – if they see the comments and support the video is getting.
Our objective is to show strong support of this cause !
We ask the membership to assist us by taking these action steps?
On Wednesday, May 22, following our regular club meeting,
ICOA will be holding a special meeting to develop a game plan to assist in getting the Convention of States passed in Nevada.
Please stay on for this meeting – if you would like to learn more and become more involved in the movement.
One of the pillars of the Investment Club of America (formerly Las Vegas Investment Club) is community involvement. The overall consensus of ICOA members is that the U.S. Federal Government has overstepped its purpose and has far more power than was ever intended by our Founding Fathers and the U.S. Constitution.
Mark Meckler, Founder of Convention of States Action (aka Citizens for Self-Governance) recently presented at a club event, discussing the original intention our Founding Fathers had with forming the Federal Government. Convention of States Action is one of the leading organizations actively working to hold a Convention of States as outlined in Article V of the U.S. Constitution.
I think all Americans agree that the Federal Government’s spending is out of control and there is very little bipartisan cooperation to get real results for American citizens. There are many important issues, but Congress seems more consumed with political battles and members getting re-elected, rather than improving the lives of American citizens.
What is most impressive about the effort to convene a Convention of States is it is purely a grassroots movement led by community groups, such as the Investment Club of America, who want to see change and restrictions placed on the Federal Government, including: establishing term limits on Federal politicians, limiting the power of unelected bureaucrats and lobbyists, forcing the Federal Government to pass a balanced budget, and most important of all, bringing power back to the states, which was the one of the primary intentions of our Constitution in the first place.
We invite you to watch Mark’s speech to club members last month.
Afterwards, 100% of the room supported the Convention of States and every member in the room donated. This truly is a strong testament to the popularity of the movement and evidence that once this message is delivered to all Americans, we will gain the support necessary to make these much needed changes and put power back in the hands of the people, instead of special interest groups and lobbyists on Capitol Hill.
