I will say the article linked below makes compelling arguments, but I think the danger outweighs the gains we might hope to make. Our constitution is what it is in part due to the character and careful consideration of those who wrote it. Do such men of character exist today? I believe the answer is “yes,” but I am not so sure enough of them are in government to make this a good idea. Though a convention may be called for specific purposes, there is nothing to prevent wholesale destruction of our founding document once the convention commences. We are not in a condition as a nation that would make this a good idea. We need revival first, then maybe we can talk about tweaking the Constitution.
