Article V Convention of States
September 8, 2021
Hosted by Darren Yancy
Most people feel that DC has went far beyond its founding Constitutional powers and is out of control. Representatives & Senators making careers and finding ways to create their own enrichment system was not part of the Founders original plan. The Founders envisioned a time when the nation would need to re-take its powers and place an important tool in the Constitution under Article V. It's beyond time to call an Article V Convention. Special Guest Erika Hatfield of The Convention Of States Action will join Darren today to review what Article V means, what is needed to put the process in motion, as well as the potential political earthquake that would follow.
