Constitutional Convention

We call a constitutional convention under Article V of the United States Constitution to amend the constitution against corruption in the legislative & executive branches of the US Government.

About: The United States Constitution serves as the bedrock of American democracy, providing the framework for governance and protecting the rights and liberties of its citizens. However, as society evolves and new challenges emerge, it is essential to periodically review and update the Constitution to ensure that it remains relevant, effective, and responsive to the needs of the people. Therefore, this proposal calls for the convening of a Constitutional Convention to amend the U.S. Constitution, reaffirming its commitment to democracy, justice, and equality.


Simple: to bring power back to the states and the people, where it belongs. Unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. shouldn’t be allowed to make sweeping decisions that impact millions of Americans. But right now, they do. So it all boils down to one question: Who do you think should decide what’s best for you and your family? You, or the feds? We’d vote for the American people every single time.


Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a convention to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. Our convention would only allow the states to discuss amendments that, “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.”

Objective: In order to strengthen the foundation of democracy and ensure accountability in government, it is imperative to implement reforms that address key issues such as term limits for elected officials, fiscal responsibility in budgeting, and prevention of conflicts of interest. This proposal outlines three specific reforms aimed at enhancing government accountability and transparency: setting term limits for government officials, enforcing balanced budget legislation, and implementing strict bribery laws to prevent conflicts of interest.

Term Limits for Government Officials:

  1. Proposal: Amend the U.S. Constitution to establish term limits for members of Congress and other elected officials. Rationale:

    • Promotes Accountability: Term limits prevent the entrenchment of career politicians, ensuring that elected officials remain accountable to the electorate rather than special interests.

      • Encourages Fresh Perspectives: Term limits encourage turnover in government, allowing for the infusion of new ideas, perspectives, and talent into the political system.

      • Reduces Incumbency Advantage: Term limits level the playing field by reducing the advantages enjoyed by incumbents, thereby promoting competitive elections and enhancing democratic representation.

Balanced Budget Legislation:

Proposal: Enact legislation that mandates Congress to balance the federal budget and imposes consequences for failure to do so, such as ineligibility for reelection. Rationale:

  • Fiscal Responsibility: Balancing the budget promotes fiscal discipline and prevents excessive government spending, ensuring the long-term sustainability of public finances.

  • Accountability Mechanism: Establishing consequences for budget deficits incentivizes lawmakers to prioritize responsible budgeting and avoid reckless fiscal policies.

  • Economic Stability: A balanced budget fosters economic stability by reducing the accumulation of national debt and the risk of financial crises.

Bribery Laws to Prevent Conflicts of Interest:

Proposal: Enact legislation to prohibit members of Congress from trading stocks while in office, requiring them to place their assets into blind trusts or divest from conflicting investments. Rationale:

  • Prevents Conflicts of Interest: Prohibiting lawmakers from trading stocks while in office prevents potential conflicts of interest and ensures that legislative decisions are made in the public interest rather than for personal financial gain.

  • Enhances Public Trust: Strengthening bribery laws increases transparency and accountability in government, enhancing public trust in the integrity of elected officials and the legislative process.

  • Levels the Playing Field: Requiring lawmakers to place their assets into blind trusts or divest from conflicting investments levels the playing field and ensures that elected officials are not unfairly benefiting from insider information or market manipulation.

Conclusion: In conclusion, the convening of a Constitutional Convention presents a historic opportunity for the United States. By implementing term limits for government officials, enforcing balanced budget legislation, and strengthening bribery laws to prevent conflicts of interest, the United States can enhance government accountability, transparency, and integrity. These reforms are essential for restoring public trust in government institutions and ensuring that elected officials serve the best interests of the people they represent. It is imperative for policymakers to prioritize these reforms and work towards a more accountable and responsive government.
