I don't know why certain entities are so upset about a possible state Constitutional Convention. People and lobbyists who suggest that there is no compelling reason to review the state constitution may have a point regarding changes, but what's the harm in discussing it? Isn't that part of what democracy is all about- the free flow and exchange of ideas and points of view? Anyone ever heard of the United States Constitution, which has been amended 27 times?
What would have happened in those good old days if people were not open to changes that made sense for the betterment of the emerging nation? And you can only imagine that all kinds of suggested amendments were tossed around with great emotion and simply didn't make the cut- as it should be. As written, the Hawaii Constitution states that every 10 years, the voters of Hawaii can decide whether or not changes should be looked at via a Con Con.
