The Convention of States

Every lover of liberty wants to rein in federal spending.  But how do we do that?  There is a movement to use Article V or what some refer to as a Convention of States to bring this about.  This is a highly contentious debate among conservatives with strong and respected voices on both sides.

On Tuesday, March 26, the Greene County Ohio Tea Party and Greene County Republican Party co-hosted an event with speaker Ricki Pepin, Ohio Chapter Leader of the Institute on the Constitution to present the Constitutional and historical side of this debate.  She presented both sides of this issue and asked those present to weigh what they heard and decide for themselves where to stand on this incredibly important issue. 

Interest and enthusiasm is growing to learn more about current events from a Constitutional perspective.  This was clearly demonstrated as the room filled to capacity quickly, with about 80 people attending from both sides of this issue.  When the presentation was over, Ricki received a standing ovation with many questions following.   

Who do you know that may host a Constitution class in your area?  The time to do so has never been better or more needed.
