Welcome to ArticleV.org, where you can propose ideas, constitutional amendments and receive feedback from other members.
Who is ArticleV.org?
We are the product of the Inter-Occupy Article V Work Group.
As ArticleV.org we welcome people from all walks of life; accross the political spectrum. This effort exists as a result of the success of Occupy Wall Street and the Occupy movement that identified the root causes of the difficulties facing the 99 percent of Americans. We explore the potential remedies to restore our democratic institutions. Our mission is to:
1.) Educate Americans on the reasons to bring about an Article V convention.
2.) Apply their energy to pressure Congress to call for a Convention to propose amendments to the United States Constitution as described in Article V of the Constitution.
This is not a left-wing or right-wing organization. We think of ourselves as radically moderate. Compromise cannot be a dirty word when we have so much mending to do. We choose to employ a fresh course of reason and common sense that is lacking from what has become the typical debate.
We believe the American people offer the most direct course to a sustainable American economy, environment, and insure the long-term future of our nation.
To achieve these ends, we are getting creative, seeking new ways to fix old problems, taking on both grassroots-level projects and national campaigns.
Article V of the U.S. Constitution
"THE CONGRESS … ON THE APPLICATION OF THE LEGISLATURES OF TWO THIRDS OF THE SEVERAL STATES, SHALL CALL A CONVENTION FOR PROPOSING AMENDMENTS …"
