In followup to a previous post, 35 states have now passed some sort of sovereignty resolution this year. If you would count them all as supporters of a Constitutional Convention limiting the powers of the federal government, they're 1 over what they would need to call a convention but 3 short of actually passing anything. It would be interesting to see happen. It would be like a drop kick in the NFL or watching the Cubs play an Americal League team before MLB came up with Interleague Play.
Also, in a tangential story, thanks, Fair Taxers. Go talk about a national sales tax and look what happens. I'm sure in the coming months VAT will be pitched as the only way to keep our government running (conveniently ignoring the option to stop spending so much). And they're not even going to give us the courtesy of pretending to abolish the IRS for a few years.
