|Beware of Con-Cons, Union, NJ|
Change the Constitution – or DESTROY It?
Beware of calls for a Constitutional Convention.
There are only two ways to modify the U.S. Constitution – by amendment or constitutional convention. The amendment method has been used 27 times. But a constitutional convention, or a “con-con,” has NEVER been used, 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.
There are once again renewed calls for a con-con accompanied by the usual sleight-of-hand to try to throw Americans off the scent. Learn about the dangers and the deceptive calls and about the role your state’s legislators can play to prevent a con-con in this brief but enlightening video presentation. It features former state senator Randy Brogdon and state representatives Charles Key and Dr. Michael Ritze.
