With the legislative losses in Colorado and New Hampshire, the Article V BBA movement’s tally will very likely be reduced from 28 states to 26. The new Democratic majorities are in debt to the Soros Empire, and he will demand, and get, rescission votes.
The all Republican path to the required 34 states lasted from 2014 to 2018. That was the window, but it’s now closed. We could theoretically get from 26 to 31 with the addition of MT, ID, SC, KY and VA. But we won’t get over 31, because no Democrat will allow it.
If the Republicans flip three state Houses in 2020 (a distinct possibility with a Trump landslide), 34 could again be within reach. It could be 2022, or 2024.
We’ll get there, eventually. Article V is the only constitutional remedy for an out of control, entrenched Congress. Congress will only go downhill from here. Something will have to be done, and Congress is incapable, on a bipartisan basis, of reforming itself.
This political movement was founded in 1975 by a couple of old blue dog Democratic state legislators. I first got involved as a State Senator in Alaska in 1983. So I’ve been at it for 35 years.
I’ll be 80 years old in 2025, and I’ll keep at it until then. The movement will then be 50 years old. Time for new blood.
