    "Mathematically precludes?" Not at all The eleven most populous states represent 56% of the population.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_population) Add state #12, Virginia, at 8.4 million gives a total of 59% of the population of the United States. Thus, the other 41% of the people, through their states, could make odious changes to our country. Check your numbers!

    Why do left-wing writers insist on frightening people? 75%+ approval for whatever is proposed mathematically precludes partisan nonsense from becoming part of the Constitution. What we'll find out, its that everyone (most everyone) agrees that private money in the form of campaign contributions corrupts public policy. Solution: publicly fund elections. foavc.org Arizona has called a planning convention for September 12th in Phoenix.

    We can't see the end from the beginning of the process--we can't predetermine the outcome--but we *can* sit down together from whatever ideological backgrounds are represented, hash out the means to rein in the abuses of the federal government, and then send those one-state-one-vote amendments back to the states for ratification by 3/4's of them. Better this than doing nothing at all on the basis that something worse would happen. "Worse" is happening now. The frog swimming frantically in the increasingly warming pot is nearly dead and doesn't know it.

    Deep South? Excuse me, but when I last looked at the map (and at the history of the Civil War), Indiana, Arizona and Alaska were about as far removed from the Confederacy as possible, and NONE of these states is calling for secession! If these unnamed "critics" of Article V of our Constitution are trying to marginalize the very process which was CREATED by the Framers themselves, then I think it might be advisable for you to look a little closer at their hidden priorities, and spend a little less time and ink promoting their fallacies.
