Award for Conservative Excellence
The American Conservative Union annually reviews the voting records of each state legislator across the country. For the fourth straight year, they have awarded me, and several others in Minnesota, for having proud conservative records.
Convention of States
This morning, I had the pleasure of being on a panel with fellow award-winning conservative legislators, Representatives Mekeland, Lueck, Lucero, and Senator Mathews, to discuss a convention to propose amendments to the federal constitution.
Convention of the States is an organization proposing three amendments be drafted:
- Balanced budget
- Term limits
- Federal overreach.
I enjoyed taking the interaction with the audience to answer their questions. One of the most pointed questions was, “what assurances can you give us that this won’t go awry”. There were no guarantees in 1787 and the only guarantee I can make today is this: if we do nothing, in very short order, we the people will have nothing.
