    @TexasKnight – Actually there have been 3 amendments made to the Constitution since 1962 (the 50 years mention in your post) – the 24th (revocation of voting rights) in 1962, the 25th (defining the process of presidential succession) in 1965, and the 26th (modifying the voting age to 18) in 1971.

    As for a constitutional convention, only 1 has ever been called by the states – for the 21st amendment in 1933 repealing the the 18th amendment and effectively ending prohibition.
