Letter: Convention of States could badly backfire

The Constitution is the bedrock of our government. Calling a Convention of the States to revise the Constitution is a dangerous and unnecessary move.

The Constitution is the bedrock of our government. Calling a Convention of the States to revise the Constitution is a dangerous and unnecessary move.

Once a Convention begins, no one really knows how extensive the changes to our Constitution would be. Would basic rights disappear? Would the balance of powers still be intact?

Who will set the rules for the convention? How will delegates be selected, and how will power be divided among the states?

Those who set the rules will control the game.

Certainly, there is much that needs to be fixed in our nation, but the Constitution is not the problem. The nation's debt has come from elected officials who have disregarded the Constitution and allocated tax dollars for unconstitutional government programs. Fix that problem first.
