  • Reply to: Convention of States Fires Up Base for Push to Rewrite U.S. Constitution   12 months 1 day ago
    All we need are two amendments, One would be to end the wealthy from pouring money into our elections. The second would be to end the fake news. Now we all know this could never happen because the financial support for COS is actually coming from the the very wealthy who support the fake news. It's like George Carlin said, "it's a big club and you ain't in it."

    Your facts are correct. It is my observation that COS will fail, not because they are pursuing the wrong agenda, but because they are partisan. An Article V convention may succeed when efforts are non-partisan. Many issues are favored by the people but no action is taking place in Congress. My effort is called 'vote on it'. Give the power to influence government to the people. And it starts with an Article V convention to amend the Constitution.

    Don't listen to this fear mongering hit-piece. The feds are obviously afraid of having their near limitless power reigned in by the people and the states.

    My first comment incorrectly stated that only 2/3 of the States need to approve amendments; it's actually 3/4. So still, a "runaway convention" is literally not a thing.

    The protection against a runaway convention is that the convention itself doesn't get to rewrite the constitution. The convention merely proposes amendments to the Constitution. This is 1 of 2 methods in the Constitution for amendments to be proposed, the other being Congress. Any amendments that come out of the convention must be ratified by 2/3 of the States to come into force. Left leaning folks aren't afraid of a Convention of States (which by the way, article author, isn't the same thing as a constitutional convention) per second. They fear a reduction in the power of the federal government, because they lean to the authoritarian side of the political spectrum and favor big government and centralized power.
