Re: [MISP] Fwd: From Jim Gossard-This is important and timely

This is a very bad idea, for a number of reasons.  Not the least of which is that whenever a Constitutional Convention is held the entire constitution is up for change, not just the addition of an amendment that some individuals may want.  Personally, in the current political climate, I would not like to see the possibility of the entire constitution taken apart and reconstructed.  Not only would such an endeavor create political chaos in this country, I believe it would send the international economy into a heretofore unimagined tailspin.
There are other mechanisms for proposing the addition of an amendment to the constitution which I think should be employed before such a drastic and unpredictable course of action is taken.  Just my thoughts.
