Why worry because Coburn says “Constitutional Convention”?
First, he doesn’t know the correct terminology, his town hall meeting constituent mentioned Mark Levin’s book about a convention to AMEND the Constitution according to the process laid out in the Constitution itself.
That is not a “Constitutional Convention”, it’s an “amend the Constitution convention”, two entirely different things.
Second, Coburn has absolutely nothing to say about what happens. This would be a convention of STATES and completely bypasses Washington DC/the Federal Government.
In fact, when the constituent asked Coburn for his suggestion what citizens could do to advance Levin’s cause, Coburn said, this has nothing to do with me, you need to lobby the OK state legislature to join the effort.
Thanks for the additional information/clarifications. It is an ongoing effort for me to deepen my understanding of the differences, and certainly appreciate any help in that regard :)
Concerning the issue of trusting Coburn - well, that is looking more doubtful every day, but he shouldn’t feel too bad. He has a LOT of company ;)
