In a previous post Yours Truly referenced how Minnesota State GOP Officials are pushing Koch Brothers/ALEC’s radical plan to change the U.S. Constitution and thereby abolish Medicare and Medicaid. Democrats have traditionally done well in Minnesota where Obama won both in 2008 and 2012 and Hillary Clinton in 2016.In much the same way, Michigan is a Democrat-friendly state. Obama won Michigan in 2008 and 2012. Most pollsters predicted a Hillary Clinton win in Michigan in 2016, but she surprisingly lost to President Donald Trump. Questions as to how Hillary Clinton lost Michigan and whether she even lost in the first place(Russian interference) remain subjects of great controversy stirred up in part by none other than Yours Truly.

Unlike Minnesota which is still mulling the ConCon idea, Michigan has already agreed to it. Simply because Michigan has already agreed to the measure doesn’t mean Dems should let the issue die. The sponsors of the ConCon proposal are up for reelection this November. Dems should give them a run for their money.
Here’s a Handy List of 18 Michigan State House Republicans who sponsored House Joint Resolution V(HJR-V) in 2017, the state’s Constitutional Convention proposal. Almost all of them(few are termed out) are running for reelection in November 2018.
Michigan Dems should make a move for these State House seats to send a clear message to these 18 GOP State Reps and their colleagues in the Michigan Senate that KochBrothers /ALEC’s radical agenda is not welcome in Michigan. Bottomline Michigan and Minnesota are Dem-friendly states that could produce major electoral harvests by waging the #NoConCon war.
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
