|Beware of Article V: Understanding the Dangers of a Constitutional Convention, Wayne, NJ|
Change the Constitution – or DESTROY the Constitution?
There are two ways to modify the U.S. Constitution – by amendment or constitutional convention. The amendment method has been used successfully 27 times. But a constitutional convention, or a “con-con,” has NEVER been used since the Constitution was ratified, and with good reason:
Once set in motion, a con-con cannot be stopped or controlled. There is no mechanism to ensure a representative selection of delegates at a con-con, which can lead to a runaway convention and put the Constitution into the hands of those who want to radically change it – or destroy it altogether.

His clearly written and spoken words have helped many Americans to understand and combat our nation’s self-defeating policies.
