Update: Due to the significance of the Georgia Senate vote in favor of a Convention of States, we plan to replay Tuesday's senate presentation, debate and vote in its entirety (C-SPAN style) in the first hour of this program. Discussion will follow.

Are changes to the U.S. Constitution a necessary step to puttiing America back on its intended course?

Advocates for new constitutional amendments says they're critical to address issues like term limits or skyrocketing national debt. 

Opponents argue a constitutional convention could become a Pandora's box, unleashing unintended consquences, perhaps opening the door to scap our current 1789 Constitution.

Good or bad, right or wroing, a resolution passed in the Georgia senate this week in support of a Convention of the States. If the Georgia House and governor go along, Georgia may become the first state to declare support for this rare and extreme meaure in U.S. governance.

Don and Doug tackle this under-reported news on Friday's show. Extended portions of Tuesday's senate debate will be featured.  

Serious stuff is in motion. Be informed. Connect the dots. Our program begins at 1:00 pm EST.
