Agreed. The Constitutional Convention, if it is ever called, will be populated by Congress critters. They will use it to pass all kinds of amendments to steal more of our freedoms. You don’t actually think they will let the people have any say, do (collective) you?
1st amendment - remove religious and association clauses.
2nd amendment - gone.
3rd, 4th and 5th amendments - more government power.
6th, 7th and 8th amendments - probably stay the same, except for including no trials in national security cases.
9th and 10th amendments - erased.
They’ll probably add a “balanced budget” amendment so they can raise taxes anytime they want. They’ll make impeachment easier, except for themselves. The states will no longer have the right to call a Convention of States.
I think we are being set up. Leave the Constitution alone.
Congress has that power every day that it's in session! Why do you trust Congress more?
They can already do all that so what worries you? The simple fact is a COS requires exactly the same votes to amend the Constitution as does the Congress, the only difference is Congress and the Courts have no say in the matter, the proposed by a COS.
My only problem is that they ignore the Constitution now so why would they care if you add some more stuff they can ignore?
