Convention Of States
“The most important ‘governing event’ in our lifetime.”
Keith Carmichael, The Missouri director for the Convention of States Project, spoke at the TTTT this month. Keith and his wife Glenna, both former teachers, raise beef cattle and have published a regional beef publication for over 20 years. They have been married almost 36 years and have three sons and 5 grandchildren. Neither had ever been involved in politics, but realizing, like many others, that our nation is on an unsustainable path to chaos and collapse, Keith began looking for solutions that might give their grandchildren and future generations hope of an America to grow up in.
Until a few years ago, Keith admits, he wasn’t even aware that the U.S. Constitution – specifically in Article V – gave state legislatures the power and responsibility to act together and call for what is basically a ‘federal oversight committee meeting’. Like many, he believes this federal oversight is long overdue.
As the director of the Convention of States Project in Missouri, Carmichael helps coordinate several thousand citizen volunteers in Missouri who are organized and ready to support Missouri’s ‘application’ for an Article V convention for proposing amendments in order to restrain the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.
Keith gave an update on the current legislative session in Missouri and the project’s status nationally. If you want more information, go to: http://www.conventionofstates.com
