Texas Governor Calls for Huge, Insane Changes to U.S. Constitution

Greg Abbot's insane Constitution changesConservatives like to talk about calling a convention to change the U.S. Constitution. It's usually discussed in the context of a potential balanced budget amendment; Marco Rubio said just this week that he'd support such a convention.
