 But far from dissuading the effort to amend our Constitution,​ Henry'​s words should encourage it. The benefits of the Texas Plan are many because any change effectuated by an assembly of the people will force the federal government— whether in big ways or small—to take the Constitution seriously again. And the downsides of such an assembly are virtually nonexistent,​ given that any change to our Constitution'​s text requires such overwhelming nationwide support. The only true downside comes from doing nothing and allowing the federal government to continue ignoring the very document that created it. But far from dissuading the effort to amend our Constitution,​ Henry'​s words should encourage it.
