- Do you trust the hundreds of radical organizations calling for an Article V Convention to do the “right thing” and rein in the federal government?
- Will liberal states such as California, New York, and Illinois, work toward the same values and purposes that represent Utah?
There is no way a convention can be limited!
Article V of the Constitution only allows states to apply to Congress for a convention to amend the Constitution. Once the required number of states have submitted their applications, Congress must “call” the convention. Article V does not empower the states to have any control over the convention itself.
Congress has been operating outside the bounds of the Constitution for years, there’s nothing that will compel Congress to comply with the “New Constitution” any more than they have with our current Constitution.
States have other means and mechanisms to deal with a runaway federal government which are every bit as powerful, but incur none of the risk.
Please OPPOSE HJR 14, HJR 7, and any other attempt to call a CON CON or Convention of the States.
