While the concept of having an Article V convention of states sounds very appealing, it is deeply flawed. Proponents assume that people of the caliber of our Founding Fathers would be the only ones making changes. The reality is that in today’s political world, we would have many factions fighting to change our Constitution to fit their own agenda. As a result, we would easily lose many safeguards, such as parts of our Bill of Rights. It is much less risky to stick to the tried-and-true amendment process that has worked all these years.
