Mark Meckler on the Jim Bohannon Show: How to keep our republic

Published in Blog on July 17, 2017 by Convention Of States Project

Mark Meckler recently appeared on the Jim Bohannon show to discuss the state of our modern government and the solution that is found in Article V of our own Constitution.

Here’s a synopsis of the show:

When Founding Father Benjamin Franklin was asked what kind of government was created by the 1787 Constitutional Convention, he is purported to have said “A Republic … if you can keep it.” A Republic is a government where the people’s business is done by elected representatives. As the nation grew in size and power, however, government has taken on a life of its own. While we still elect representatives, the infrastructure, and frequently inertia, of government prevents much from getting done.

Is it time to return to more self-governance and wipe away what modern government has become? That’s the idea behind the group Citizens for Self Governance. We’re going to talk to its president tonight, Mark Meckler (@MarkMeckler), about an initiative of theirs to make use of a provision in the U.S. Constitution (Article V) to allow a Convention of States specifically to propose Constitutional amendments that would limit the scope, power, and jurisdiction of the Federal government.
