We live in desperate times. We live in a time of great opportunities. Our world is out of control. We have never had more knowledge or better tools for bringing it under control. We have never had more laws, more regulations, more taxes, more spending, more intrusive government, ….
So on Thursday, August 28, 2014 @ 7 PM. we have been invited to hear a discussion of a very interesting proposal to scrap unneeded laws and regulations, cut taxes and spending, reduce the size of government, ….
Here is a note I received to today from Delegate Bob Marshall.
Mike Farris and I will debate whether or not we should hold a national convention (with delegates from every state), under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, to propose amendments that will make changes to our United States Constitution.
Both of us have researched this issue in depth and have reached opposite conclusions. I will argue that states should not petition Congress to call such a Convention for the purpose of amending (changing) the Constitution. Mike Farris will argue that we should.
Please join us if you can, and listen to both sides of the argument. There will be an opportunity for the audience to have their questions answered. The debate will take place on Thursday evening, August 28, from 7:00-9:00 PM at Colgan Hall on the campus of the Northern Virginia Community College located at 6901 Sudley Rd. Manassas, VA 20109. I look forward to seeing you there!
Delegate Bob Marshall
Although I have great respect for Delegate Marshall, I have been swinging over to the idea of a Convention of the states. To see why, here are several posts I have written on the subject.
- A GREAT COMMENT!
- WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO? (includes a video of Mike Farris in previous debate)
- Reblog: Article V Of The Constitution. The Final Straw?
- WHY DO WE FEAR A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION: Reblogged from aurorawatcherak
Nevertheless, I look forward to hearing the debate. Hard to imagine people better equipped for presenting each side of the argument.
