iVoteAmerica Joins the Call for a Convention of the States!
Stop the Growth and Control of Government!
Article 5 of the United States Constitution grants the States a right to amend the Constitution. This right is separate from the right of the Federal Government to create Amendments. We now know that our Government will not fix itself, nor will it address the issues that give it unbridled power and control.
