'A Lot of Fear in Our Country': 'Convention of States' Project Aims to Limit Federal 'Tyranny'
Mark Levin sat down for an in-depth conversation with Tom Coburn and Mark Meckler to discuss the Convention of States project as well as the current state of American politics.
Meckler, who co-founded the Tea Party Patriots, said the purpose of his effort is to call a national convention together to propose amendments that would restrain federal "tyranny."
Meckler is the project's president and told Levin that good politicians are working in a broken congressional system.
"They cannot fix what ails the country," he said.
The Convention of States, according to its website, is:
"A national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress."
Tom Coburn, the project's senior advisor, said that the country's rule of law is "under stress."
"What we see today is a lot of fear in our country," he said. "Leadership requires courage to do the right thing."
Coburn added that he believes America is not as economically free as it once was.
"That's the tyranny of a large government," he said.
