A Constitutional Convention of States per Article 5 is becoming increasingly likely in the very near future. Do you know your state level rep & senators well enough to feel that they will represent you well
Know for certain they won't. Except maybe in regard to NSA overreach.
Every time states petition for an Article V convention, congress gets there act together real quick.
Our reps in California are complete idiots. Not sure why they keep getting elected.....oh wait. The voters are idiots also.
Yes, I'm very active with my state legislature.
Yes I know them, as for representing me, they are doing better..
What makes you say there's going to be a constitutional convention? That's news to me. There are many people who think the constitution needs a complete overhaul (rather than amendments)?
Give me a bit and ill send you some links. But im sure you can find plenty on your own with google
There is a states convention planning meeting in indianapolis this summer with 100s attending.
According to this one from cbs, 20 states have taken steps to have a states convention. 17 more is needed
Ted Cruz and Pete Olson yes. John Cornyn no.
Nope. All die-hard liberals.
my state senators would be great. The representatives are all over the board. Michigan is a pretty diverse place.
I know Ted Cruz will. I'm less certain about Jobn Cornyn, who has been critical of the Tea Party, and Rep. Mike conaway, who is more moderate than I and has been in Congress long enough to have become part of the Republican Establishment.
My state rep will represent me well. My senators will not. ( Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal )
I know one would, one wouldn't, the rest I'm not sure.
