WE ARE READY TO AMEND PETITION

    1. Article V.org
    2. Petition by

      Article V.org

      Hilo, HI

Summon an Article Five Convention.

We acknowledge the fact that the States have satisfied the required two-thirds numerical threshold to call for an Article V Convention under Article V of the US Constitution and Congress should call an Article V Convention to order.

We offer the attached data to support our agreement of fact. http://foavc.org/file.php/1/Amendments

What is an Article V Convention? 

The only direct way citizens can propose amendments to the Constitution of the United States.

Why should America do this? 
Such a convention, an institution unto itself, is our brightest hope towards bringing about these changes.

What would Americans propose as amendments? 
This is something that needn't be answered specifically at this time. We see a fundamental problem, the solution to which must take place outside the current nexus of Congress and corporate institutions.

The proposal today is not about what amendment(s) to discuss and debate at a convention. It is simply about supporting the idea of holding a convention because we recognize it is the only way we citizens can participate directly in our constitutional form of government.

If Americans get behind the Article V Convention it will create the awareness and political circumstance necessary to bring it about.
