  • Brian and Senator Mike Johanns...

    With all due respect, the use of the term "constitutional convention" is inaccurate; the appropriate term is an Article V Amendments Convention (capitalization for proper nouns). The one and only constitutional convention was in 1778 in Philadelphia. No where in the U.S. Constitution does it mention a constitutional convention.

    The process for an Article V Amendments Convention is quite clear if you do two things: 1) Read Article V without adding anything to it; and 2) Study the information found on foavc.org website (you'll also be able to see the 700+ applications for amendments by 49 of the 50 states!). The exact details for an Article V Amendments Convention are delineated by Bill Walker, a Constitutional Scholar.

    His latest article can be found at article-v-convention.com if you click on HOME. Thank you for your interest in accuracy.

    P.S.: My Marilyn owns 40 acres in Nebraska, where her 3 brothers still live on their individual 40 acre farms.

    Perhaps you missed the responses here... http://www.mccookgazette.com/blogs/hoag/entry/40229/

    This is such a convoluted mess and so much money is involved, getting an Article V Amendments Convention after all the push already for one seems pretty unlikely for some reason, unless the people clean the policital houses completely, and somehow I don't see that happening.
