What Would an Article V Convention Try to Do?
Front-page story on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette this morning.
A large hurdle to call one. And large hurdles to actually approve anything the convention came up with as amendments to the Constitution.
To a certain degree this looks like another safety valve to keep citizens unhappy with the current status quo non-violent since this is another method to attempt to enact change.
Such a move would attract lots of groups with different agendas. A bit OWS-ish in that regard. Whether or not some of the proposals are actually good ideas is questionable as well.
