Please note ThePeoplesConvention.org is NOT a convention held pursuant to Article V of the U.S. Constitution and dominated by state legislators. ThePeoplesConvention.org is called by the people themselves, free from the influence of special interests, pursuant to the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Brawling. ThePeoplesConvention.org requires respect, listening and the willingness to cooperate.
Fringe or unduly partisan proposals. The goal is to identify proposals that will be approved by the vast majority of Americans (think 75%) from across the political spectrum.
Special interests. This will focus on what the American people as a whole believe is best for the American community as a whole. Special interests include those with a precise predetermined agenda to benefit a specific subclass within the community.
Authoritarians. Authoritarians are those that prefer a government dominated by an elite, privileged, few. ThePeoplesConvention.org is for those that prefer a democratic, rule by the many, form of government.
Article V Proponents. A convention under “Article V” of the U.S. Constitution is typically dominated by highly partisan state legislators with little or no input from the general public. ThePeoplesConvention.org is designed by the people themselves pursuant to the newer, First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
