Here’s Why a State Called Constitutional Convention is a REALLY HORRIBLE IDEA

When asked about their thoughts on a State Called Constitutional Convention:

Justice Antonin Scalia said in 2014, “I certainly would not want a constitutional convention. Whoa! Who knows what would come out of it?”

Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court Warren Burger wrote in 1988: [T]here is no way to effectively limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention.  The Convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda.  Congress might try to limit the Convention to one amendment or one issue, but there is no way to assure that the Convention would obey.  After a Convention is convened, it will be too late to stop the Convention if we don’t like its agenda.
