Good News, America! WE the PEOPLE can fix Washington DC, and put an end to the spiraling debt, corporate influence, two-party war, inattentive management, unfair taxes, ballot re-counts, constant campaigning, unlimited re-elections and highly politicized judicial nominations (just to name a few). It’s never been used before, but in 1787 a “check-and-balance” was added to the Constitution that allows the States to place concrete and permanent limits (with actual consequences) on the President, Congress and Supreme Court: The Article V Convention. The key to the entire process is for American citizens to coordinate at the grassroots level (just like they did 225 years ago when they created this great nation) and vote strategically in local elections for their state representatives. The America 2051 Project is a step-by-step plan to call a limited Constitutional Convention and implement real and lasting change by the second half of this Century, complete with fill-in-the-blank legislative documents, convention rules, information and lobbying materials, and proposed amendment language for adoption at the Convention. With the tools provided for us in the Constitution, and the ability to coordinate through America2051.com, we can restore the balance of power away from our public servants, and back to We the People. Let's form a More Perfect Union. (All proceeds from this book will support the non-profit work of The America 2051 Project, Inc.)

Thank you Jimmy for hard work on this, and for opening our eyes to a real solution!
Here is a book with propose, and a method to move our nation forward into a brighter future where “We The People” means just that –US- the American people, and we have work to do. The author address seven national issues, “structural flaws” that we all intuitively know threatens our republic. The author suggests a common sense plan to amend these flaws to the national constitution through the use of state “limited” conventions as prescribed in article five for amendment process in The United States Constitution. Seems complicated? Not for James M. Paulino in his book The America 2051 Project: A Non-Political Plan to Fix Our Political System. This book is a call for the states to amend the national constitution under Article V through the use of “limited” state convention process. It is not a call for state constitutional conventions. For the student of government studies or Participation in Government The America 2051...
As a person who considers himself well-read, and even somewhat knowledgeable about the (U.S.) Constitution, I was caught off-guard by my own ignorance of Article V, its content, meaning and implications. Thus, this book, well-written and informative in a conversational manner, taught me a number of things I did not know. (E.g., among other facts, the role of Governeur Morris in the authorship of the Constitution.) But the real effect is that the writer evinces ambition for a practical solution to many of our concerns for America, and more importantly, his own hopes for and love of country. Read the Preface (many readers of books normally do not); it sets the tone for the rest of the book, and engenders some of the enthusiasm the writer so clearly feels.
