Doug, interesting discussion. However, I hold little or no hope for an Article 5 Convention of States. Not because it couldn't happen, but because the population will not understand what is happening and the MSM will support the the DC swamp in the narrative that any such action is "rebellion" or "insurrection". As for the 10th Amendment, that was made null and void at Appomattox Court House. You allude to it in your 4-part timeline, in that after the Civil War, the Federal government began taking on a nationalist role. This accelerated under the Progressives and continues unabated today. All the expansion of the federal government has been instigated by the Fed itself; I can think of no instance where the states turned and delegated responsibility to the Fed. And, as you pointed out in earlier podcasts, the Fed's money generation/distribution schemes will prevent the states from objecting.
