Convention of States

Convention of States

Citizen patriots themselves can and are actively drain the swamp in a civil, peaceful, and legal manner. A major movement began in 2013 called the Convention of States. Click here to download the Articles of the Convention of States. By calling and convening the first-ever Convention of States, the states and the people can strip Washington D.C. of its power and return that power to those city councils and state legislatures, where voters can truly hold their elected officials accountable.

Term Limits: Explained

What Are Term Limits and Why Do We Need Them?

Our recent article on Citisun entitled "Trump Vows To Drain The Swamp In Washington D.C." sparked interest, and raised a question worth exploring further, regarding term limits. Trump vowed repeatedly during his campaign to see to it that a Constitutional amendment would be added to impose term limits to all members of Congress.  In response to our article on draining the swamp, a comment / question by a Facebook poster asked:

Drain The Swamp

Trump Vows to Drain The Swamp In Washington DC

Edited by John Coonen – In a lengthy Saturday address in Gettysburg, PA, Donald Trump laid out a seven point plan to “drain the swamp” inWashington, DC, and revitalize the American economy. Trump pledged that in his first 100 days in office, he will restore “honesty, accountability and change to Washington” through the following steps:

Trans-Pacific Partnership

What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement? (TPP)

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a secretive, multinational trade agreement that threatens to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe and rewrite international rules on its enforcement.

The main problems are two-fold:

(1) Digital Policies that Benefit Big Corporations at the Expense of the Public: The IP chapter would have extensive negative ramifications for users’ freedom of expression, right to privacy and due process, as well as hindering peoples' abilities to innovate. Other chapters of the agreement encourage your personal data to be sent borders with limited protection for your privacy, and allow foreign corporations to sue countries for laws or regulations that promote the public interest,

(2) Lack of Transparency: The entire process has shut out multi-stakeholder participation and is shrouded in secrecy.

GOP Unity Pledge

Open Letter To Reince Priebus: Keep The Unity Pledge For 2020

Dear GOP: Keep the Unity Pledge for 2020 

Back in April of 2015, I disagreed with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and his "Unity Pledge," but clearly I was wrong. I thought it was disrespectful toward all of the primary candidates. I thought supporting the eventual winning candidate would go without saying (or pledging). I also thought it was an underhanded way to force one candidate (Donald Trump) to either leave the GOP in the spring of 2015, or promise not to run as independent in the case of his loss. Trump bowed to the RNC and other candidates' demand, famously signing the pledge in Sharpee marker.

Change We Can Believe In?

Eight Years Later, This Isn’t Change I Believed In

Will Obama's Legacy Be The "Hateful Eight" Years of Change?

Now that more than eight years have passed since the days when Barack Obama made his meteoric rise in politics, it's fair to say that he's had his chance to deliver on his campaign promise of "change you can believe in."  The effects of his Presidency will be felt for decades no doubt, and his legacy has yet to be written, but for this snapshot in time in September of 2016, what positive and meaningful change has Barack Obama delivered?
