A true citizen of America
What makes me feel good, you might be wondering. Well, that is easy — the chance to be a true citizen of America.
A citizen holds his government accountable by taking a proactive approach on how America is governed. A citizen does not sit back and watch things unfold after he has voted and complain about how the election went; he takes action on those issues he feels are of benefit to America. In brief, he takes the power to govern back to himself and away from unelected bureaucracies.
A citizen participates in community affairs however he can. And above all, a citizen helps others do the same. Our Founders knew this, lived it and wrote a Constitution to assure it for us. It is our duty, our responsibility, to adhere to these truths and carry on these principles by teaching them to this and future generations.
I support the resolution to call for an Article V convention of states to propose amendments to the Constitution in three areas: fiscal responsibility, government overreach of power and term limits for federal officials. Wouldn’t it make you feel good to know you did your best to be a true citizen of America?
