Click through to the article and you’ll see that this comes from Larry J. Sabato of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. Who is Larry J. Sabato?
He wants a Constitutional Convention (his words) to, among other things:
Appoint all former presidents and vice presidents to the new office of “National Senator”
Lengthen the terms of representatives from two years to three years, and set Senate terms to coincide with all presidential elections, so the entire House and Senate would be elected at the same time as the President. (say good by to diffused power)
“Universal national service”
See his book “A More Perfect Constitution”
A warning, he envisions this under Article V.
The Center for Politics, which he founded, conducts a National Youth Leadership Initiative where students engage in a mock Constitutional Convention. http://www.amoreperfectconstitution.com/youth_leadership_initiative.htm
This Snake is Slick.
Great info., Ray76.
Thank you. Will visit links when the sun comes up.
I’ve been aware of Sabato for a while. A very conservative friend at work thinks highly of him. I’m not so sure, although I acknowledge he has a better than 50-50 track record in predicting election outcomes in the past. But another Bush? No thanks!
