This effort is described as a project of citizens for self governance. The rallying cry of those who want to use Article V of The Constitution as a tool to amend it is that the federal government has grown to big, too unwieldy and overly intrusive in our lives. This they say is driving us into debt which is unsustainable and taking away our liberties.  Mark Meckler is a co-founder of this movement and describes its plan, goals and the importance of your participation.
