Tidal Wave of Millennials Join Fight to Drain the Swamp (COS)
Convention of States ^ | April 9th 2019 | Convention of States

Posted on 04/13/2019 12:14:20 PM PDT by Jacquerie

The next generation of conservative leaders have been watching and waiting for a cause where they can make a tangible difference and be a part of history in the making. For years, they felt hopeless.

But today, the scene looks very different.

Ben Shapiro has teamed up with Convention of States to funnel his millions of young listeners into the fight to call a Convention of States.

In a matter of weeks, tens of thousands of young activists have flooded into the movement, taking on leadership positions, and being trained to take back their power from Washington, D.C.

These are their stories.

Shelby M., San Antonio, Texas, State Content Writer
“When Ben Shapiro mentioned the Convention of States on his podcast, that was all I needed to dive in and investigate. I had spent years feeling powerless and frustrated with the growing size and corruption of the federal government, but with COS, I suddenly saw the opportunity to DO something! Instead of just complaining, I could be a part of a team that was working toward a solution. It was so empowering!”

I’ve got 5 kids, 19 on down. Not one is a liberal. They have been homeschooled and shown what the Left is all about. Their friends, as far as I know, share similar beliefs. The Left are full of lies and liars.

More from the column:

Mike D., Wayland, Massachusetts, “When I heard Ben talk about COS, I immediately went online to find out more about it. I had been looking for a way to get involved in something that might keep alive the liberties that were given to us. The Convention of States Project gave me hope that there is a way for the people and the states to regain power from the federal government.”

He’s a neocon tool. Never saw a war he didn’t like (unless he was invited to play) never Trumper, and had littls of nice things to say about Buttigig.

He fights the Left on their own turf - the universities.

It's been quite successful so far. They have millions of volunteers and from nothing in 2013 they now have 15 states signed up. The left has already taken notice and continues to push up the fear and Uncertainty to stop this amazing effort. I expect the hysteria to ramp up to exploding head volume as the count gets closer to the all important 34 needed.

Personally, I think a COS is a bad idea. If it ever actually happens, it WILL be taken over by radical dems, and our republic will be gone.

Yes, Ben is definitely a treasure! His videos on YouTube are well worth anyone’s time. And if you have kids, you need to make sure they’re listening to him, & PragerU & a few others.

We can beat the left & an Article V Convention is a good way to do it.

No doubt. That's when The John Birch Society and Eagle Forum will find themselves in bed with the rat media.

Worst idea ever - lefties will take it over, and when they are done, the US Constitution will become a living document resembling the Russian Constitution during the USSR period.

You imagine that there are “safeguards” to prevent such a thing, but while you are busy going to work, the lefty trust-funders who do not have to work will be huddled with their slimy lawyers finding loopholes and other ways to nullify the “safeguards”. Naive conservatives will be jelly under the Lefty juggernaut.

Ship the “treasure” to some other country, please.

I've heard that for years. No one has explained why a majority of state legislatures will instruct their delegates to screw America.

Yeah, well, maybe a diamond in the rough. He needs to knock off the NeverTrump crap and realize he’s in a position to help but it will mean the spotlight is not always on HIM. I always hear a little Glenn Beck in him, but he’s much smarter than Beck. We’ll see if he’s smart enough to figure out which way the wind is blowing.
