This is my nightmare. What better way to promote big government than have all restrictions on it removed from the Constitution?

I DON’T want a “Constitutional Convention”.

We HAVE the Constitutional mechanisms in place to effectuate what we want. We just don’t have voters SMART enough to elect people with the courage to USE them.

A Constitutional Convention is the key for the left to destroy the Bill of Rights.

It will be complete chaos, take years, and in the end nobody will be happy with the outcome. Sounds like great TV. What the hell.

NO.

The Constitution is fine as it is. Not following it is the problem.

Nononononononononohellno.

If we ever open the hood the Left will gut the Constitution. Everything we hold dear will be destroyed and every crazy half-baked "right" you can imagine and some you wouldn't want to imagine will be ensconced in perpetuity. No thanks!

Absolutely not!

If you cannot control who gets elected to run your Govt how in the world do you think you would control who got elected to a Constitutional Convention? Do this and kiss the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 10th Amendments good bye.

“For the first time in modern history the populist left and populist right came together to endorse, and seek a way to operationalize, a transcendent belief in citizens over government.”

Breath-takingly naive. Harvard Law professors would dominate and subvert the process and substance. Even talking to people at HLS is a mistake.

No. It’s time for remedial reading classes for congress covering the general welfare and interstate commerce clauses.
