The John Birch Society has opposed calls for a modern-day constitutional convention (con-con) for decades and seeks to work through Congress for Constitutional amendments rather than through a convention.
Many view a con-con as a quick way to pass amendments they think will stop the big-government juggernaut. Why would politicians suddenly start following an amended Constitution after ignoring and violating the current Constitution for so long?
The remedy so desperately needed to return our country to good government is to enforce the Constitution, not amend it.
