A Convention of States Wouldn’t Fix the US Constitution

by Thomas L Knapp

“[A] constitution is, even at its very perfected best, only as good as adherence to that constitution. Why do supporters of an Article V convention expect the US government would obey the proposed amendments any more than it obeys the existing document? … I’m skeptical of the notion that political government can ever be forced to limit its own power and prerogatives. The history of the United States tends to justify that skepticism.” (06/02/21)
