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.

Richard Dodson, CCRMC President
