POLITICAL MUSINGS: Why A Constitutional Convention?

What's going on do you suppose?
Do you know what's proposed?
Oh, I totally expressed curiosity
At the gathering of states, you see,
For the purpose of amending
Our Constitution...I'm sending
them note: NOT sure I endorse this idea
That's gaining traction in Arizona.
There could be the possibility
Of myriad mayhem. I'm wary.
IMHO, making all members of
Congress subject, not above,
The laws of this country
Is a wonderful idea; am I too overwrought
Believing calling a Constitutional Convention is not?

DID YOU KNOW THAT pursuant to Article 5 of the US Constitution, if 2/3rds of the states call for such a convention, (meaning 34 states) it MUST take place in such a convention and that the ENTIRE Constitution is subject to review and can be altered and changed? This could be everything from installing “social justice” to the dissolution of the federal government. Everything is on the table as if we were back in 1776 Philadelphia.

This is an unprecedented event to amend the U.S. Constitution emerging from the states. Normally, Congress proposes a bill to amend the Constitution as was the case with income tax. KEEP THIS ONE ON YOUR RADAR – we are looking at the potential for real change good or bad...
