We do welcome many that have joined the efforts for:
"Our Families, Our Children, Our Future
However, where were the many when a few were making every effort to stop our adjust the many amendments to CAPTA & Related Acts for Families and Children??

Historical Reference:
Congress passed the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act.The Adoption Assistance Act requires, in part, that states receiving federal monies under the Act>> make 
 “reasonable efforts” to prevent the removal of children from their homes and, whenever possible, to reunify children placed in foster care with their families.
Congress passed the Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA),2 which modifies the reasonable efforts requirement by allowing exceptions to the requirement in certain situations and by using the same term reasonable efforts
to describe a new child welfare agency requirement to find permanent  homes for children.
“Reasonable efforts” has been one of the most hotly debated and confusing issues in the field of child welfare over the past two decades.

Three reasons we need a Convention of States

Let's declare our liberty.

We the People have two options: triumph or submit.

We can submit to Washington’s imperious national policies or we can use an Article V Convention of States to declare our liberty.

Still aren’t convinced? Here are three reasons we need a Convention of States today.
Think Greece can’t happen here? You’re wrong. Greece’s economic situation is surprisingly similar to our projected economy if we stay on our present course. 
The Social Security administration is making some serious errors. The red tape is so thick it can’t even collect overpayments without wasting money.
The massive federal overreach you haven’t heard about. President Obama’s new rule is “on par with Obamacare in its transformative potential.”
P.S. Let your voice be heard! Take our judicial overreach poll and let us know what you think of the recent SCOTUS decisions.

Our Children are Counting on US

Just passing a thought along from an email received today.

What kind of America will our children inherit?

Our children are counting on us.

Dear Chuck,

In the wake of unprecedented federal overreach and unrelenting attacks on our independence, Americans across the country are wondering, “What kind of country will my children inherit?

Will it be a country mired in debt, wasting taxpayer money on useless projects and handing down decrees from an unelected majority of nine?

Or will it be a country where true leaders – ordinary men and women across America – take a stand and reclaim the independence our forefathers fought and died to secure?

The choice is ours. Our children and grandchildren are depending on this generation to fight the overreach of the President, Congress, and especially the Supreme Court using an Article V Convention of States.
The Supreme Court buster. In this article, Michael Farris demonstrates how the latest SCOTUS rulings prove the need for an Article V Convention and outlines an amendment that could keep the Court from overstepping its bounds. 
SCOTUS decisions underscore need for a Convention of States. Our kids need us to fight federal overreach and ensure their freedom. Let's us the tool the Founders gave us to do just that.
Mark Levin and Sen. Tom Coburn team up. Listen to Sen. Coburn’s appearance on The Mark Levin Show last week to discuss SCOTUS and Article V.
