      Gosh I hope so!!!! Considering the great Mark Meadows already has the job of being President Trump’s Chief of Staff I guess the only suitable job left for Andy would be Secretary of Defense though the thought of his being Secretary of State does bring a smile to my face.

    Now that will be a terrible loss! Andy (Heritage-88%) not only votes right but he has the most charming disdain of the opinions of the liberal “opinion leaders” who are so effective in intimidating so many of the all too easily intimidated tepid conservative in the legislature. Hopefully some day Andy will return to politics seeking an even higher office.

    You are right Stuart, great loss for conservatives in Tennessee. There are a hundred more important issues to real conservatives than a constitutional convention.

        Ah, James, but that’s why you are sooooo weird. Right now a constitutional convention is among the scores of political things that are possible but least likely to happen and yet you have made that one thing your obsession.

    You need to google Wolf Pak and look at all the “conservatives” and “liberals” wanting this. BBA Term Limits, Mark Levin, … They are spending Big Bucks on this and twisting arms and telling lies .
    In 1983 there were 32 states calling for a BBA, (just needed 2 more)…. too close..
    today there are 28 and TN is one of them.
    and it is not my only obsession. But it is perhaps the most dangerous.

    This is another great chance to elect a democrat! We have to get back to responsible budgets and taxing for a more progressive agenda. Tennessee is ready to go BLUE!

      Oh how right you are Beatrice, as usual. Get the word out, please. Don’t keep that to yourself. Tell all your leftist friends about it so they spend a lot of money trying to make Tennessee “BLUE” so they have less money to spend elsewhere where it might really make a destructive difference.

    so rude, Stuart. This state has a lot of growing up to with regard to its reputation on minorities, unions and immigrants/refugees.
