U.S. now only 2 states away from rewriting Constitution
14 Dec 2008
Tom DeWeese, who runs the center and its education and grassroots work, told WND the possibilities stunned him when he discovered lawmakers in Ohio are considering a call for a Constitutional Convention. He explained that 32 other states already have taken that vote, and only one more would be needed to require Congress to name convention delegates who then would have more power than Congress itself.

Chuck Michaelis is Executive Director of Camp American (http://www.campamerican.com/) and Vice-chairman of the Institute for Principled Policy (http://www.principledpolicy.com/), an Ohio-based public policy think tank. In his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee he delivered this little-known and staggering bit of news to legislators: "Article V (of the U.S. Constitution) contains no requirement that the states be represented in a Con Con."

The Constitution does not permit any restrictions on the subject matter a Con Con considers.

The Constitution does not guarantee states may choose any delegates to a Con Con.

The Constitution does not guarantee any state will be represented at a Con Con.

To paraphrase Chief Justice Warren Burger's admonition, NOBODY TELLS A CON CON WHAT TO DO!
