    Idaho, a conservative Republican stronghold, rejects a convention of states

    See: House committee defeats resolution calling for constitutional convention


    Feb 10, 2018


    ” BOISE - Idaho will not be joining other states in calling for an Article V convention to amend the U.S. Constitution.

    Despite heartfelt pleas for faith, inspiration, trust and patriotism, the House State Affairs Committee defeated an Article V resolution on a 10-5 vote Friday.”



    The article is fair and balanced and goes on to point out “Article V doesn't provide any guidelines or rules for how a convention of the states would operate. It's unclear, for example, whether the convention could be limited to discussing a single topic, such as a balanced budget amendment. It's unclear how many votes states would have when deciding on amendment - one per state, or multiple votes based on population.”

    ”The deception of the appeal for a "convention of states" lies first of all in the name of the project. If you open your pocket Constitution, it's easy to see that the convention authorized by Article V would not be a "convention of states" in any sense of the word.” __ Phyllis Schlafly, 5/24/2016

    It's all nonsense. No convention.
