    Look forward to meeting y’all at the convention and discussing The Convention of States Project. I’m the District Captain for South Carolina House District 28. Go to the website at to learn how an US Constitution Article V amendment convention can help reduce the role of the Federal Leviathan –
    The Convention of States Project sees four major abuses perpetrated by the federal government.
    These abuses are not mere instances of bad policy. They are driving us towards an age of “soft tyranny” in which the government does not shatter men’s wills but “softens, bends, and guides” them. If we do nothing to halt these abuses, we run the risk of becoming, as Alexis de Tocquevill warned in 1840, nothing more than “a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.” (Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, 1840)
    1. The Spending and Debt Crisis
    The $17 trillion national debt is staggering, but it only tells a part of the story. If we apply the normal rules of accounting, the federal government owes trillions more in vested Social Security benefits and other programs. This is why the government cannot tax its way out of debt. Even if they confiscated everything, it would not cover the debt.
    2. The Regulatory Crisis
    The federal bureaucracy has placed a regulatory burden upon businesses that is complex, conflicted, and crushing. Little accountability exists when agencies—rather than Congress—enact the real substance of the law. Research from the American Enterprise Institute, shows that since 1949 federal regulations have lowered the real GDP growth by 2% and made America 72% poorer.
    3. Congressional Attacks on State Sovereignty
    For years, Congress has been using federal grants to keep the states under its control. Using these grants accompanied by mandates (which are rarely fully funded), Congress has turned state legislatures into their regional agencies rather than truly independent republican governments.
    A radical social agenda and an erosion of the rights of the people accompany all of this. While substantial efforts have been made to combat the social engineering and to protect peoples’ rights, we have missed one of the most important principles of the American founding.
    4. Federal Takeover of the Decision-Making Process
    The Founders believed that the structures of a limited government would provide the greatest protection of liberty. There were to be checks and balances at the federal level. And everything not specifically granted to Congress for legislative control was to be left to the states.
    Collusion among decision-makers in Washington, D.C., has replaced these checks and balances. The federal judiciary supports Congress and the White House in its ever-escalating attack upon the jurisdiction of the fifty states.
    We need to realize that the structure of decision-making matters. Who decides what the law shall be is even more important than what is decided. The protection of liberty requires a strict adherence to the principle that power is limited and delegated.
    Washington, D.C., does not believe this principle, as evidenced by an unbroken practice of expanding the boundaries of federal power. In a remarkably frank admission, the Supreme Court rebuffed another challenge to the federal spending power by acknowledging their approval of programs that violate the will of the Founders:
    This framework has been sufficiently flexible over the past two centuries to allow for enormous changes in the nature of government. The Federal Government undertakes activities today that would have been unimaginable to the Framers in two senses; first, because the Framers would not have conceived that any government would conduct such activities; and second, because the Framers would not have believed that the Federal Government, rather than the States, would assume such responsibilities. Yet the powers conferred upon the Federal Government by the Constitution were phrased in language broad enough to allow for the expansion of the Federal Government’s role.
    New York v. United States, 505 U.S. 144, 157 (1992).
    What Does this Mean?
    This is not a partisan issue. Washington, D.C., will never voluntarily relinquish meaningful power—no matter who is elected. The only rational conclusion is this: unless some political force outside of Washington, D.C., intervenes, the federal government will continue to bankrupt this nation, embezzle the legitimate authority of the states, and destroy the liberty of the people. Rather than securing the blessings of liberty for future generations, Washington, D.C., is on a path that will enslave our children and grandchildren to the debts of the past.

    We look forward in NC to coming to this great event again. Kevin Shinault with the NC Tea Coalition Steering Committee will be taking notes again. You had great speakers last year and are doing a fantastic job of thwarting the left in South Carolina. We have a candidate who came right out of the TEA party ranks in North Carolina who would be great addition to your line up. Bill Flynn a talk show host and 35 year DJ is running for US Senate and I recommend you reach out to him.
    Thanks and as always, In Liberty

    redware says:

    Was interested in attending until I noticed that Tom Rice has been invited to speak.Quite obviously he is not interested in smaller government,nor fiscal integrity as evidenced by his support for the Ryan-Murray budget.I am no longer interested in supporting any candidate with an “R” next to their name simoly because they are the “lesser of two evils”.It is clear your organization is more about promoting the establishment in the GOP than in conservative ideals.

    • 9.1

      We are sorry to hear you will not be attending. But if one person is keeping you from attending you must not be one of us. The event has many people attending and not agree on everything, but one thing we all do stand together on we must defeat the LIBERALS in 2016. The event will be live streamed from the website of Tea Party Patriots so we hope you will watch from home. Congressman Rice is doing a great job in DC representing district 7!

      Rebecca says:

      I to do not support the new budget. Taking one dime from the military is obscene. Should not have happened. I do not see one legislator putting in that same budget, a cut in pay for their pay nor a modification of their pay and retirement at all. Their pay and benefits are sucking us dry, as are the people who live on unemployment for 4-5 years and others on endless welfare. I see legislative overpay and retirement as the same drain on the taxpayer. We will have to pay close attention to any legislator who votes to re-instate the endless unemployment pay. Someone has to make the tough decisions. Too many have turned unemployment into mass endless welfare. They are not even looking for work. There is always work if one WANTS TO WORK.
      Not being a part of the process, and only making comments like you did, does not solve anything. Attending the convention, paying attention to who does what, and letting anyone know we plan to vote our feelings makes more sense than just tuning out. No one is more disgusted with some GOP members than I am. No one. But that’s one of the things this convention can accomplish, make our demands known, listen to what others have to say. Don’t just tune out because of what one legislator does. Trust me, any of the GOP who supported this budget may very well not be in office after next fall. Rebecca in Charleston

    Go South Carolina Tea Party and don’t lose the Focus: Win the senate and presidency and defeat the socialism of America….obamacare. Wish I could be there to support the cause. This is away from the Beltway and the president is so out of touch he is playing golf in Hawaii….oblivious to any problem he causes. Keep up the great work!
