What is an Article V Constitutional Convention and why did the Michigan Legislature apply for it?
Points have been made vigorously on both sides of the issue. Some argue that an article V could get out of hand, while others see it as a way to harden constitutional principles firmly with specific goals. The fact is, that average Joe hasn’t a clue of what it entails, what the risks are, or what might be unexpected outcomes.
Here is an opportunity to hear both perspectives presented in a debate format among good friends; each, who are solidly on either side of the question.The Traverse Bay 912 Project; a 5 year old weekly meeting of conservatives and community leaders will host the debate TOMORROW at 10AM.
