Article V opponents argue that society is too corrupt to trust to a Convention of States. Aren’t the signs all around? School shootings, fatherless homes, muslim no-go zones, barbaric gang killings, government-sponsored abortion and sale of body parts, creeping proscription of Christianity, coarse manners, illiterate high school graduates, all point to an untrustworthy culture in decline. Not only is the decay evident across the whole of society, but thanks to decades of open borders society itself is fracturing into pieces, pieces of self-serving groups intent on beggaring every other group for government goodies.
To Article V opponents, societal corruption begins with and wells upward from the people into government. As John Adams related, republican free government rests on the foundation of a virtuous society; a horrid fate awaits our nation unless society reverses course and in turn sends better men and women to government. And soon.
What is behind the seeming dissolution of American civilization? I say that corruption does not rise upward. What ails America trickles and occasionally floods downward from the commanding heights of government, especially federal courts, on a society seemingly unarmed and unable to fight back. The answer is plain to see.

iprazhm: I have come to believe that God placed Trump in office to help Israel, and nothing else. He is clearly not there to secure the republic or promote decency. Only when the people return to serving Christ, will our country return to being great again.
