Subject: Part 3 of 8: Proof the Founders Wanted a Laser-Targeted Article V Convention
Date: 2015-01-11T20:26:58Z

Dear Reader:


Thank you for your attention again to our 8 part series demonstrating through Founding Era evidence that the Founders intended and expected for the states to laser-target the Article V convention to desired amendments specified in their application. This premise is the foundation of the Compact for America approach to amending the Constitution by Article V convention.


Today’s link furnishes the words of James Madison himself in Federalist No. 43 as “Exhibit C.”

Compact for America Educational Foundation, Inc. (the “Educational Foundation”) is a not-for-profit tax-exempt educational organization formed under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and is recognized as such by the Internal Revenue Service pursuant to the IRS determination letter dated October 1, 2014.  The Educational Foundation is formed primarily to educate elected officials, citizens and residents of the United States and the several states of the use of an interstate compact agreement and counterpart federal legislation to coordinate the use of Article V of the U.S. Constitution by state legislatures and the US Congress to originate, propose and ratify constitutional amendments.  Accordingly, the Educational Foundation serves as a pro-bono technical advisor providing procedural guidance to various state legislators, compact commissioners, compact commissions, members of Congress, state governors, and interested citizens on matters related to the development, education, evaluation, enactment and implementation of related interstate compact agreements.  In this capacity, nothing in this message should be construed as an attempt to influence legislation.  The only Compact for America entity authorized to influence legislation either directly or by way of grassroots calls to action is Compact for America, Inc. ("Compact for America Action"), which is a not-for-profit tax-exempt social welfare organization under section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code and recognized as such by the Internal Revenue Service. The Educational Foundation is making every effort to ensure its operations are not confused with those of Compact for America Action.
