Who in the states makes the final determination? The Congress gets to make the rules. I can see bogus “state ratifying conventions” taking place in a Hugo Chavez type environment, in downtown civic centers, with “security” provided by SEIU, and the delegates from ACORN, blessed by the leftist MSM.
Any conservatives who tried to show up would get an SEIU beat down.
Would it work? On one level, yes. On another level no, because such a bogus con-con and ratifying conventions would precipitate CW2.
I agree it wouldn't be bloodless. Only way less so than a CW2 which is were we're headed. That or a collapse with a starving population scavenging for subsistence. It is our chance but there maybe nothing we can do to avoid a coming storm of monumental size and scope and the current landscape rent asunder.
Even so, it's my opinion that there will be a new dawn for a better world in the not too distance future. Hence I applaud the survivalist.
