    Considering your claim of non-transparency, it seems to me you have had no trouble finding all the information you wanted. So where is the non-transparency? What's not transparent is your failed attempt to mud-sling. Better luck next time.

    The comments section don’t allow adequate responses to the misinformation in this this left wing propaganda piece. It’s full of inflammatory rhetoric and lies, meant to stir up the site's primary readers. The lies include things the article’s focus on a Constitutional Convention rather than an Article V Convention of States (COS), the lie that Scalia was against a COS, and the idea that there is nothing to limit a COS. Like Scalia said, "The founders inserted this alternative method of obtaining constitutional amendments because they knew the Congress would be unwilling to give attention to many issues the people are concerned with...". He also said the idea that an Article V convention could propose an extreme or unpalatable amendment could also be said about convening Congress. Readers should look beyond this nonsense article and research COS on their own. Our current government leaders, judges, and bureaucrats have gone beyond their authority and need reigning in.

    No where in article 5 does it talk of rewriting the constitution. It does talk of two different ways to propose an amendment to the constitution. If you are advocating that to propose a amendment is same as rewriting the constitution then where are the 27 rewrites to the constitution with the 27 amendments?? If congress can propose amendments then the people should be able to propose amendments. That is all article 5 is about in a nutshell. The proposed amendments would still have to be ratified by 38 states. It would only take 13 states to vote no to kill any crazy ideas in an amendment. The resolution states only a few subjects that are allowed to be considered for amendments. Anything outside of these areas will not be allowed. The rules of process has been practiced for 241 years and has worked in all that time. A mocked convention was done and went very well with various people from different political backgrounds agreeing to amendments. Try to agree in Congress!

    Its sooo tedious reading the musings of yet another left-wing loon, in this case Mary Bottari of CMD, beating up on Convention of States and other Article V efforts. Yes, she may be factually correct in the machinations of some of the infighting between these different efforts but so what? What's absolutely insulting and flat out wrong is her complete lack of understanding of what the Constitution calls for in Article V and how its not legally possible to have a "2nd Constitutional Convention." I am so tired of reading the drivel that stems from that falsehood--i.e the idocy about groups wanting to rewrite the Constitution when the plan is to RESTORE the original intent of the document as ratified in 1789. But oh no, Bottari can't accept that premise when she is bound and determined to undermine the single most powerful--and dare I say only--tool available today to citizens to gain control over our out-of-control federal government. Get a clue, we're trying to save our nation.

    Stop lying and using scare tactics. A convention to propose amendment(s) is not a "rewrite" of the Constitution. You'd be fine with a convention of states if it included amendments you favored.
