This week Ann and Ted did a podcast with Dr. Michael Farris, National Director of the Convention of States project, https://conventionofstates.com/. This group believes that we can solve our national problem of federal overreach through the use of an Article V Convention of the states. Listen to the interview. Dr. Farris will be in locations all over Ohio in early October.
Questions in the podcast include… What is a convention of states? What are the possible problems with opening up the Constitution? How far along are we in the process?
The Convention of States believes that the problem that we face is the federal government has overreached its constitutionally-established boundaries and has its hands in almost every area of our lives. Our children and grandchildren will inherit a bankrupt nation run by an unaccountable bureaucracy.
They believe that the solution to that problem is an Article V convention. Article V allows us to call a Convention of States to restrict the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, effectively returning the citizens’ rightful power over the ruling elite.
The way they plan to achieve this is together, state legislators and citizens can recover the checks and balances on federal power to protect our liberty from the abuses in Washington DC.
