    018 - Runaway Fear

    In a recent appearance on Steve Hilton's The Next Revolution, Jason Chaffetz and Tomi Lahren both expressed a great deal of fear over a Convention of the States. Chaffetz claimed that "you don't know what the rules are if you have one of these." This episode discusses the rules that apply to such a convention and why there is nothing to fear.
