Principles and Policies Podcast for 9/28/2013- When A “Debate” Is Really A Sales Pitch

Our Principles and Policies radio show for Saturday September 28, 2013. This is a rerun of a program done in August. We are running this now as a response to the recent We The People conference which was touted as a “debate” over the question of an Article V Constitutional Convention. As Barry and I predicted there was no debate. What happened was a facilitated sales pitch in which questions were not taken from the floor but chosen from questions written in advance by the audience, submitted, and edited to suit the needs of the facilitators. No opposition was allowed to speak or rebut the points made by the speakers there. Many of the things said echo what is being said by Mark Levin in this interview and many of our refutations would have been more pointed at the conference had we been invited. We were not.

Chuck Michaelis and Barry Sheets dissect an interview of Lawyer, author, and talk show host Mark Levin about his book The Liberty Amendments. We find much to agree with but also find glaring errors which put holes in his argument for an Article V convention to sink it without a trace.

Levin’s presentation is a sales pitch without question. Sadly, so was the We The People presentation despite the hype.
