On Tuesday January 5th, Louisiana State Director Bryce Barras gave a presentation on an Article V Convention of States to the Lafayette Lions Club. The presentation covered everything from why we need a Convention of States, how the Article V convention process works, and why fears of a runaway convention are unfounded.
It was a very in depth presentation, going all the way back to the 1787 Constitutional Convention explaining the history of Article V and the use of interstate conventions by the Founding generation. Barras then touched on the Article V convention process and how this can be used to propose constitutional amendments that restrain the power of the federal government. Later in the presentation, Barras explained how the fear of a runaway convention is unfounded, saying the Founders specifically put the Article V convention process in the Constitution so the states would be able to circumvent the federal government and propose amendments that limit the federal government's power.
Barras was joined by his Louisiana Convention of States team members, Legislative Liaisons Chuck Reames and Randy Evans, and Lafayette District Captain Steve Gardes. These hardworking patriots are volunteering there time to save the country from an out of control federal government and to preserve the constitutional republic our Founders gave us.
