There is a lot of talk about holding a Constitutional Convention, a Convention of the States, as outlined in Article V of the US Constitution. This is a dangerous notion. And one that must be opposed at every level and opportunity.
This talk isn’t new. I have seen it on past election ballots before. And I have always opposed such measures and always will. It is a great danger to our Country, our States, and our People. It is a greater danger to our Republic, our freedoms, and our Liberties.
A Constitutional Convention after the year 1808 allows the delegates to change anything and everything in the Constitution. Including scrapping our current Constitution and creating a brand new one.
This raises the question on the character of delegates to this Constitutional Convention. Are they going to protect the Republic? Are they going to defend Liberty? Do they have the Wisdom of our Founding Fathers? Unfortunately the answer to all of those is probably not. Which is why we cannot afford such a convention.
The writings of our Founding Fathers show that they were hesitant in adding Article V to the Constitution. They were afraid it would be used. That is why it had restrictions written into it until 1808. To ensure a generation of Liberty and the Republic . They never saw a time when our Liberties and the Republic would fall from within.
Oppose any attempt to call a Constitutional Convention or Convention of the States under Article V of the Constitution with every breath of life you have. The American Republic depends on preserving the Constitution. No rewriting it. Our children, our grand children, and the generations yet to be born need the Constitution written by our Founding Fathers, not one written in the 21st century.
