A majority of Americans, 66%, believe the federal Government has too much power. Under Article V of the Constitution the states could convene to propose Constitutional Amendments to curb the power of the federal Government. Mike Farris, chancellor of Patrick Henry University, is the leader of Convention of the States Project supporting a convention to pass amendments that will reign in the federal government. I readily admit that I don’t know enough about the plan to know if it is a good idea or if it’s even a feasible plan for curbing the federal government.
A good way to learn more about a possible Convention of the States is to attend a debate on August 28th between Mike Farris, who supports the convention, and Delegate Bob Marshall who does not. The debate moderator will be Ken Cuccinelli. It should be a very interesting discussion. I am more than willing to listen to any ideas for curbing the power of the federal government.
