There is nothing to fear with the Article V movement. First of all, we need 2/3 of the states to approve it, so it's not like you can put some crazy amendments in there that will sneak through. And as it stands now, the federal government essentially ignores the Constitution and federal laws as it is. Passing these amendments would be the first shot across the bow of the Federal government telling them that there will soon be a Constitutional crisis if they don't get their act together. The goal is for states to reclaim their power again. We want states to run their education system, their health care system, etc., all things the Executive Branch has taken over throughout the Progressive era. America should not be divided every Presidential election cycle with half the country wanting to secede or have a coup attempt like we just had with Trump. The country was not meant to have a king, and a king is what we have now. Let conservative and liberal states run their own affairs, with the Federal government playing referred like it was originally intended. Then step back and see which ideology works best as we compare liberal vs conservative states, verses letting the President run everything putting all our eggs in one basket, win/lose/ or draw. Conversely, the democrats want to do away with the Electoral College, which means population heavy states like New York and California will decide who will run the show indefinitely. In other words, the goal of the DNC to bring the country together is a one party takeover. Nothing else will do.
