Meckler on Beck: “Could a Convention of States Occur as Early as 2016?”
Pretty exciting. This is our only chance to save the country.

Mark Meckler appeared on Glenn Beck’s television show last night to talk about the Convention of States Project! It was a great opportunity to spread the word about the Project, and they had a great conversation. Here are the highlights:
“Under Article V, the states, via the state legislatures, have the right to call for an Amending Convention,” Meckler explained. “And it’s important that we get our language right. It’s not a Constitutional Convention. It does not open the whole Constitution up. This is an untruth that is stated by those people that are against it … It is an Amending Convention which must take place under the rubric of the Constitution itself. And the way it happens is, 34 states issue a call for a convention.”
“What we expect is, somewhere between 15 and 20 states will pass this in 2014,” Meckler said. “We expect to finish off to 34 in 2015. And the goal is to hold the convention in 2016 — great year, presidential year.”
