2018 THE YEAR OF MAGIC CONTINUES

 

CCRMC continued our educational mission this past Thursday evening which identified facts from fiction concerning the Convention of States provision Article V to amend the U.S. Constitution.

Prof. Cal Jillson, SMU Professor of Political Science, provided an authoritative presentation (which can be viewed on CCRMC Facebook and CCRMC.org). His political insight noted that history did not record Conventions of States provision as a beneficial strategy.  Second, Gov. Abbott’s 9 point proposal reflects a political philosophy rather than a political objective.  Now, “you know the rest of the story”.

Mark your calendar for our next monthly meeting Thursday, September 20. With your attendance we are able to break another record (registration reflected 95 attendees).  Yes, ladies are invited.  In fact, they may become an Associate Member.

JOIN OUR MAGIC presented by the TRADITIONAL CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN PARTY OF COLLIN COUNTY.

THE CHALLENGE OF A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION

By Richard Dodson Posted in Hot News, News Letter Archives on 2018-08-02

Why is there such a big push for the support of a Constitutional Convention?  The Texas House adopted a resolution calling for a convention of states to amend the U. S. Constitution—one of Gov. Greg Abbotts proposals.

Our outstanding speaker SMU Prof. of Political Science, Cal Jillson, will address this political issue.  Prof Jillson is one of the nation’s foremost political experts.  He has provided journalist political insight on U.S. and Texas politics.  He is author of the book, “Lone Star Tarnished” and a former member of The Council on Foreign Relations. 

Prof. Jillson will expand upon the underlying reasons for a constitutional convention and identify the risks involved in the call for an Article V Convention of States.  This is an educational presentation that provides the necessary answers thus enabling you to make a decision on the merits or risks of Gov. Abbott’s proposal.

Mark your calendar for Thursday, August 16.  Remember, our meeting is open to the public, guests are welcome. Meet and greet begins at 6:30 pm, light refreshments will be served.

A MEANINGFUL REVIEW

I wish to share some observations and thoughts concerning members of CCRMC.  When I inquired as to WHY they have become a member of CCRMC and WHAT they said about our monthly meetings I received several interesting replies.

1.       I accept the CCRMC label TRADITIONAL CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS.  Our Collin County community politically has been divided with the ultra conservatives on one side and ALL OTHERS on the opposite.  I believe in the TRADITIONAL CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN platform as stated on our website (ccrmc.org) can unite our different groups.  I personally will assist in this endeavor. (JB)

 

2.       I recently moved from the Cornbelt.  My wife and I were greatly involved in our state Republican affairs.  We believe we need to keep involved and learn the issues and get acquainted with our political leaders in Collin County and Texas. One of our neighbors referred us to you.  We have enjoyed the CCRMC meetings and readily accept the TRADITIONAL CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN program. (BW)

 

3.       I found you on Facebook which led me to the website CCRMC.org.  I paid my membership dues… was easy on PayPal.  I want to learn about the concerns of the Republican Party, i.e., taxes, education, roads/highways, population growth…all these issues.  I hope CCRMC will provide that needed education.  Also, I hope to meet our elected officials to get to really know them. (JL)

 

4.       I was an active member when Headquarters was moved to McKinney/Frisco.  Since you moved back to Plano, I have attended the monthly meetings…. I have especially found your speaker/programs exceptional.  This last month’s speaker, the Military leader was very enlightening about the Middle East.  I want to be part of CCRMC to build our Republican Party.  Also, I have discovered the website CCRMC.org. (PH)

As indicated by the above responses, members are finding the CCRMC a valuable organization which to get involved and support our Republican Party. 

Again, let me offer a CHALLEGE. As a member attending our monthly meetings… bring a friend, invite your neighbor, and bring your wife.  Our meetings are public meetings.  ANYONE may attend.  We meet the third Thursday evening each month….Get involved in the TRADITIONAL CONSERVATVE REPUBLICAN future… JOIN THE MAGIC!
