All Points: Fix Constitution?

Gov. Greg Abbott has called on the states to adopt nine new amendments to the U.S. Constitution to “rein in the federal government and restore the balance of power between the States and the United States.”

He says “the government’s flagrant and repeated violations of the rule of law amount to a wholesale abdication of the Constitution’s design.”

Setting aside the details of how a constitutional convention would be done, do you agree with Abbott that things have gotten so far out of control that changes in this founding document are necessary?
