YOUR THREE CENTS: Do you support a convention of the states to amend the U.S. Constitution?

A group pushing for a convention of the states to amend the U.S. Constitution hopes to have resolutions before at least 24 state legislatures next year. A spokesman for the "Convention of the States Project" says three states have passed resolutions calling for a constitutional convention: Alaska, Florida and Georgia. The Florida legislature passed its resolution in support of the idea in April. The resolutions call for proposed constitutional amendments that would impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the government's power and jurisdiction and impose term limits. Two-thirds of states, or 34, would have to pass such measures. Supporters see it as a way to push back on a federal government they see as out of control. But critics have questioned the issues singled out for consideration and worry such a convention would devolve into chaos. Do you support a convention of the states to amend the U.S. Constitution?
