Regardless of what ‘the people’ want, wouldn’t the ‘pursuancy’ clause be able to hold the fort intact by itself?
“Regardless of what the people want, wouldnt the pursuancy clause be able to hold the fort intact by itself?”
Publius, who started this thread, could tell you better than I if that clause SHOULD “hold”.
Whether or not it should, I am not very fond of testing the public’s will to MAKE it hold, if holding it was needed to prevent some great “public will” (media and Dim driven) that came ramrodding out of a convention, against the rules set for that convention.
Publius has greater respect for “public integrity” of the public in general than I do, and frankly I applaud him for it and truly wish I was less cynical. Maybe I’m older (or feel older).
