In September, something very exciting is happening in Williamsburg, Virginia. For the first time ever, there will be a simulated Article V Convention of States to show “We the People” exactly how the process works in reigning in an out-of-control federal government.

Paul Bedard writes about this upcoming event in his article at The Washington Examiner:

The “Convention of States Project” said Monday that it is hosting the meeting September 21-23 in Colonial Williamsburg to show how the event, proposed in the Constitution’s Article V, would work to restore a power balance between the federal and state governments…

The dry run in Williamsburg is meant to show how one would work and focus on the changes and potential constitutional amendments that would be proposed.

It comes as many in the nation believe that the federal government is out of control, is imposing far too many costly regulations on states, and needs to give way to state governments more.

This event’s sole purpose is to show everyone in attendance how this process would work but more importantly, teach them why we need it to protect our country from the destructive actions of irresponsible Washington politicians. Many elected leaders from states like Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, Alaska, Alabama, Tennessee, Indiana, and Oklahoma will be at the practice convention representing this historic fight to restore the rightful authority of the people.
