WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN CALIFORNIA IS AT THE CONVENTION:
In the NEAR FUTURE — 34 states will approve “calling for a Con Con”
When 34 states request a Con Con — Congress has to meet and determine:
- if all of the states have correctly requested to have a Con Con
- Who gets to be a delegate of each state
- How long will the Con Con be
- When will the Con Con start
HOW CALIFORNIA FIGHTS BACK:
When the CON CON actually gets to business, California will be outnumbered by conservative American states delegates.
However, California has more money than the Koch brothers, and dominates Movies, Television, and Internet advertising.
California can out compete the Koch brothers by targeting selected American states for advertising. Nothing prevents California as a government directly, or as California individuals who believe in what CA is doing from spending money to buy advertising in American states convincing the people of that place to request their delegate change his vote to support whatever idea CA is pushing.
We know that California can do this — because it already has done it — LAST YEAR
CALIFORNIA CAN LEAD:
We know that California — can lead conservatives — at an Article V Constitutional Convention to support changing the American Constitution to deal with Climate Change because — CA has already persuaded conservatives to join California on Climate Change reduction.
Many American cities/states that voted for Trump — later joined California — on regulating Climate Change.
That means last year — California convinced conservatives to join us — on a liberal cause.

A constitutional convention is the last thing America needs
Ma 15 2017
“Conventioneers could employ the age-old practice of logrolling to get their way — combining a conservative proposal (such as the balanced budget mandate) with a liberal one (such as gun control) into a single amendment — no matter how bad or messy the resulting law.Seven of our existing 27 amendments contain at least two quite different provisions.”
Michael Spevacek: Progressives should welcome Constitutional Convention
“Instead of resisting a convention of states to propose a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution, progressives should welcome this historic and nationally televised debate to talk about the $11.5 trillion of federal spending since 1998 that can’t be accounted for.
The purpose of the Chief Financial Officers Act of 1990, the Government Management Reform Act of 1994, the Federal Financial Management Improvement Act of 1996, and the Accountability of Tax Dollars Act of 2002 was to ensure transparency and prevent a “black budget” from funding a shadow government.”
The Constitutional Convention 2016?
Jan 26 2016
“Some liberals and conservatives are teaming up in an effort to rewrite the Constitution.”
“The campaign for conventions, however one comes about, is not solely led by a conservative bastion. Former Democratic presidential candidate Lawrence Lessig stands out as a major leader in the movement.”
