Are you tired of federal government overreach? What do you think about government overspending, limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government and term limiting on Congress and other federal officials?

The 25% increase in the money supply last year alone to finance the out-of-control federal deficits shows how Washington cannot fiscally restrain itself.

We need term limits since we have an 80-year-old Speaker of the House, a 78-year-old Senate minority leader and Supreme Court Justices in their 80s.

What can any of us do? Join us at our Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, August 5 from 7-8:45 p.m. at the Eastern Michigan State Fairgrounds to find out. All are welcome.

Learn how Michigan is putting Article V of the U.S. Constitution to work for the people to save this country and what we need to do as citizens to see it through. The resolution has 25 co-sponsors and needs 56 votes to pass in the House. The resolution also requires 20 votes in the State Senate to be passed. As a resolution, it does not have to be signed by the governor, and she cannot veto it.

The resolution has already passed in 15 states. When 34 states pass the resolution, Congress must set a time and place for a convention of all 50 states to propose amendments to the Constitution for term limits, fiscal restraint, and limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.

It takes 26 states to propose an amendment and 38 states to ratify any amendment before becoming part of the Constitution.
