For our last daily podcast of 2020, we are firing up the way back machine to revisit the issue of a constitutional convention.  Or as John has referred to it – a Con-Con.  First up, we go back to December 1992 with Don Fotheringham, an opponent to the Con-Con, who suggests that once the door to amending the Constitution for freedom-loving reasons is opened, others with more malignant motives will come through to work their will.

Then we transition to June 2016 with Jenna Ellis, before she was an attorney for President Trump.  She argues that a convention of states would help limit the power of federal government and because there would be a specified agenda and a very involved amendment process, it would be all but impossible to hijack.

We'll leave our listeners to decide for themselves if a convention to amend the Constitution would be a good idea.  Let us know your opinion.
