Convention Supporters’ Myths about State Control of Delegates

By Publius Huldah.

Convention supporters assure us that the States will have control over Delegates to an Article V convention. That is not true. The Truth is States have no power over the convention…

[Can States dictate or control Delegates to a Constitutional Convention? Can Delegates to the Con Con vote to make the proceedings secret? Are Delegates vested with plenipotentiary powers to alter or abolish our form of government?

These are questions which must be answered before you should call for a Constitutional Convention.]

“Delegates to an Article V convention are performing a federal function – they are not under the authority of the States.

Furthermore, Delegates are the sovereign representatives of The People and thus are vested with plenipotentiary powers to alter or abolish our form of government – our Constitution (Declaration of Independence, 2nd para).

Delegates can vote to make the proceedings secret – that’s what they did on May 29, 1787 at the federal convention where our present Constitution was drafted.

  • If the proceedings are secret, the States won’t know what is going on – and can’t stop it.
  • And if Delegates vote by secret ballot – the States would never know who did what.

So!  Do you see?  It would be impossible for States to prosecute Delegates who ignore State instructions.”
