We now have 30 Republican governors in the 50 states. Enough to call for a Constitutional Convention. If this happens and the states are able to amend the Constitution to require all national AND state and local elections require positive voter ID as well as proof of citizenship, we will be a Nation of the people and for the people as Abraham Lincoln addressed at Gettysburg.
We have enough to call for secession as well.

Enough to call for a Constitutional Convention.
I would not trust 99.9% of those who would be 'appointed' or elected to a CC.
What they would create could be a worse disaster than what Congress and the WH and SC have created so far in our national history.
But, say they did create a few good amendments. Congress, the WH and the SC could continue to ignore them or ignore portions of them. And that would lead us back to where we are now.
For example, we have an illegals problem. But, we have laws that -- if enforced -- would handle a massive percentage of that problem. Why, then, do we have a problem with illegals? Selective enforcement.

Be advised that if a constitutional convention is called for, EVERY THING will be on the table. Read the proceedings of the original Constitutional Convention, and the horse trading that went on with men we revere for their seriousness and integrity.
Just imagine what the current crop of bums and vagrants and whores and scoundrels would do if given the power to write a New Constitution de novo. Makes my skin crawl.
