Constitutional Convention To Fix CA & NY Problems?

This may not be the answer.....

Instapundit tells the story...

When I was News Director of WJOL, Joliet, IL in the early 70s, we had a Con-Con in Illinois. As a responsible news station, we had talk sessions with delegates, legislators, and interesting folks from the community. We covered the development, and then the actual proposed new constitution from preamble to end. It took months.

When the vote came fewer than 21% of registered Illinois voters cast a ballot.

It was one of the most disappointing times in my career as a newsman.
