Lt. Col. Allen West joined Convention of States Action President Mark Meckler on the Coastal Daybreak radio show to explain how a Convention of States will work -- and why it's so necessary.
"Article V is part of our Constitution, and having served in Congress, I understand that our Founding Fathers meant for the states to have more power," West said. "And when you look at what the federal government is doing, they're running rampant, and they're running over our states."
"I think the Founding Fathers put Article V in the Constitution for the states to have a say in balancing that equilibrium between the federal government and the states."
