Arizona Debate And Discussion Over Article V Initiatives

Last week, at the Chandler Cultural Center in Chandler Arizona, the Thomas Jefferson Center sponsored a debate on state legislature driven Article V initiatives. The following audios are from people in favor of an Article V Convention of the states. Richard Mack, a former Arizona Sheriff, was opposed to it favoring nullification. Great discussion! It is worth the time to take a listen to these wonderful and knowledgeable speakers.

Josh Carden is with the Arizona Convention of States Team. If you only have 10 minutes, listen to his powerful audio. Nick Dranias is involved with both Compact For America and the Goldwater Institute. Carden and Dranias have been actively involved with pursuing amendments to the Constitution through a Convention of States. Shane Krauser is a Director with the American Academy for Constitutional Education and Russell Pierce is a former Arizona Senate President.

Moderator: Kenny Johnson, Mesa BSA District Commissioner.
Thanks to Joseph Linville for the audio

“Article V, if we don’t use it, the Left will. This is a risk we can not take.” – One of the best discussions I have heard yet on having a convention.

    I can’t believe this was not covered by the TV media. It’s fabulous.

      This wasn’t covered by the tv media because they always seem to have their own political agenda and something like this that could threaten it, disturbs them to the point of avoiding it and trying to bury it with news that doesn’t matter but takes our attention away from the facts.
