Restore our representative democracy by passing HJR-94

To be delivered to The Texas State House and The Texas State Senate

Petition Statement

Support and pass Texas House Concurrent Resolution HJR-94 and its Senate companion calling for an Article V Convention to overturn Citizens United and restore our representative democracy to "we, the people."
There are currently 447 signatures. NEW goal - We need 500 signatures!

Petition Background

Our representative democracy is broken. The only way to fix it is to amend the Constitution and overturn Citizens United. There are only two ways to amend the Constitution:

1. Through Congress
2. Through our State Legislatures via an Article V Convention.

Congress could not pass something as basic and reasonable as the Disclose Act (disclosing who is giving money to candidates). Since Congress is the source of the problem we cannot trust them to solve the problem. That leaves only one option: The Article V Convention called by State Legislatures. State Legislators have the power to compel Congress to call a convention to fix our democracy and restore the republic. Any amendment has to be ratified by 38 states whether proposed by Congress or a convention. Texas can be the first state to call for an Article V Convention to restore our representative democracy by passing HJR-94 and its Senate companion resolution.
