arry Goldwater said
:
"[I 
am] totally opposed 
to a Constitutional Convention]...We may wind up with a Constitution so far different from that we have lived under for two hundred years that the Republic might not be able to continue.
 
SCR1005
is a
C
all for a
C
onstitutional
C
onvention or an "amendments convention" toconsider whether an increase in the federal debt should require approval from a majorityof the legislatures of the states
.
Have you witnessed the ferocious battles in
C
ongress
 
over the debt ceiling?
C
an you imagine what that same battle would entail in a
C
onstitutional
C
onvention which could put our whole
C
onstitution at risk as the"amendments convention" considers multiple versions and multiple amendments?There is no way provided in Article V of the U
.
S
.
 
C
onstitution to limit the number of amendments which can be proposed in an "amendments convention," even if the states,as in S
C
R1005, try to limit it
.
Article V states, "
C
ongress
.
on the application of theLegislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a
C
onvention for proposing Amendments
.
"
(
that's amendments in the plural)
.
 The highest authority to ever speak on an amendments convention was
C
hief JusticeWarren Burger 
.
He said, "I have repeatedly given my opinion that there is
no effectiveway to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention.
The
C
onventioncould make its own rules and set its own agenda
.
 
Congress might try to limit theConvention to one amendment or to one issue,
but there is no way to assure that the
C
onvention would obey
.
After a
C
onvention is convened, it will be too late to stop the
C
onvention if we don't like its agenda
.O
ur 1787
C
onstitution was referred to by severalof its authors as a 'miracle
.
' Whatever gain might be hoped for from a new
C
onstitutional
C
onvention could
not be worth the risks involved
