A growing chorus of voices: Virginians calling for a Constitutional Convention to propose an Amendment that would empower the states to check the actions of the federal government, thus restoring some of the lost power of the states and checking the rampant growth of federalism.

the Virginia Times Dispatch has the call.

When unfunded mandates, insurmountable debt, and unconscionable spending have mortgaged our children’s and grandchildren’s futures, it is not only the right, but the duty of the states to use every tool at their disposal to restore the republic…

There are risks associated with action, but history has shown there are times when the cost of inaction is far greater. Our founders risked their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor because they understood the alternative was far worse — no longer being free men.

Today we face the same risk: We are no longer free and sovereign states.
