State Legislators Warn Against a Con-Con
This is a 12-minute video: "Beware of Con-Cons: State Legislators Warn Against a Constitutional Convention." In this video Oklahoma State Representatives Charles Key and Dr. Mike Ritze, and State Senator Randy Brogdon warn their fellow state legislators in all 50 states against passing resolutions calling for an Article V amendments convention, commonly referred to as a constitutional convention (Con-Con). They also strongly recommend that state legislators in the 34 states that have not rescinded all previous Con-Con calls, work to pass a Con-Con rescission resolution this year. Here is the list of the 16 states that have rescinded their existing Con-Con calls: Ala., Ariz., Ga., Idaho, La., Mont., N.D., N.H., Okla., Ore., S.C., S.D., Tenn., Va., Utah, and Wy.

Scott Bradley's talk about why we should oppose an Article V convention to propose a Balanced Budget Amendment was delivered at a Council Dinner of The John Birch Society in Ohio on May 4, 2013.

The John Birch Society has opposed calls for a modern-day constitutional convention (con-con) for decades and seeks to work through Congress for Constitutional amendments rather than through a convention.
Many view a con-con as a quick way to pass amendments they think will stop the big-government juggernaut. Why would politicians suddenly start following an amended Constitution after ignoring and violating the current Constitution for so long?
The remedy so desperately needed to return our country to good government is to enforce the Constitution, not amend it.
