Well I’ll just say, I am not going to do a passle of research, but will say that I share the concerns of the other poster.
We really, really, really need to not do this. Our founders created a very good system.
Leave it, the way it is. We will not like what happens, if we open up things now, to changes.
Yes, they did. And they created the convention system in Article V in the Constitution. Were they geniuses or fools?
27 amandments later it is demonstrably true that the Constitution is not, like the Bible, a finished work.
It's already being changed... Every time we turn around the stinking lawyers in DC are rewriting our constitution by way of the liberal courts...
If the states don't start fighting back real soon a goodly portion of them will belong to Mexico....
“We really, really, really need to not do this.”
So you are satisfied living in a a post-Constitutional America?
“Our founders created a very good system.”
Let me nit-pick first. The “founders” didn’t create the system. The Framers did.
Second, Article V in the very system the Framers created is what is at discussion. They created this as the final way for the States and the People to force Constitutional discipline.
“Leave it, the way it is.”
How is it? The courts make things up almost every day that changes the living document. This has been happening for a century! In fact, just the other day, the 5th circuit court GUTTED the 2nd Amendment.
“We will not like what happens, if we open up things now, to changes.”
The progressives of both parties change it at their own whims now. That is reality and your position allows for that to continue.
I suggest that you read “The Liberty Amendments” to better understand the subject.
