That is why I am asking you and your organization to join in a new group that is now forming. The group is called Friends of an Article Five Convention (FOAVC). It has one purpose: to bring people together to discuss and solve the problems surrounding the calling of a convention. The group does not believe that Congress should or ever will address these problems. 


You have raised valid and legitimate concerns in your article regarding a portion of the Constitution that requires illumination, not confrontation, to resolve. The Founders put the convention clause in the Constitution for a reason: to give people such you and I the ability to make needed change in this nation in a peaceful, thoughtful and legal manner absent of government interference. They gave us the gift of the right of the people to alter or abolish their government sir, their government. 


Won't you as a loyal, patriotic American whose greatest concern is the good of this nation, who fervently believes that the text of the Constitution, however it is written, should be obeyed by all Americans loyal and faithful to our nation, our way of life and the Constitution that all of that represents? Won't you join us to help address the issues and concerns you yourself have shown regarding a convention? 


I hope you will give thoughtful considering to my request sir. Your nation at this most serious time in its history needs people like you and the people you represent to bind the wounds, to solve the problems, to find solutions. 


Until we meet again, I remain with best regards.

Bill Walker
