Don’t call 2014 an anti-incumbent election

This year's midterm elections seemed like an incumbent's nightmare, but the numbers don't back it up. As Nathan Gonzales of FiveThirtyEight explains, the House is filled with many of the same people.

This Thanksgiving, show our troops your gratitude

Nothing we do at the Convention of States Project would be possible without the daily sacrifice of the American men and women in our armed forces. Though we all have a role in the fight to preserve liberty, they're on the front lines: they've risked everything so you and I can enjoy the peace and freedom of an independent nation.

Unfortunately, the commitment of these brave Americans often forces them to spend the holiday season away from friends and family. That's where you can help.

IRS didn't find missing emails because they didn't look

In June, the IRS announced that a critical two-year segment of Lois Lerner’s emails were lost in a hard drive crash. Conveniently, these emails perfectly corresponded with the time when Tea Party groups were being targeted for extra scrutiny and possible criminal prosecution.

Since the IRS is a government agency, many reasonable people were convinced there had to be other places to look for records. Especially since the IRS expects us to live like hoarders, meticulously keeping every receipt to avoid running afoul of their agency. Now, five months later, the IRS admits that it still hasn’t searched any of its backup systems.
