On August 17th, scientists in the U.S. and around the world made the first observation of a neutron star merger, based on gravitation waves detected at LICO in Washington state. Gamma waves, and the full light spectrum were also detected independently at observatories around the world!
In preparation of celebrating Constitution Day, Governor Cuomo signed into law a Sanctuary Executive Action, effectively expanding the governors power to write law, in so doing, Cuomo is accelerating the decline of Rule of Law in New York State.
A Yes vote is likely, so we will need to use wisdom available at links above to educate fellow New Yorkers on what a constitutional convention means and how the process will move forward in 2018 and 2019.
I would expand Grim’s argument and state that the louder the voice opposing NY-2C (and more money disbursed to Google and other corrupters of the political process) the more need of reform of that institution.
1 in 4 dollars of state and local taxes goes to EDUCATION — the largest item in the budget in New York state (health expenditures is a close second). That is why the education establishment is so strongly opposed to a constitutional convention. Not the rank and file teachers, but the union and department “leaders”. The same leaders that have given New Yorkers the highest costs and least results for their pupils .
The education establishment has not maintained the framework that used to teach students civics — which is why 32% of eligible voters participated in the election of Andrew Cuomo, and at current pace LESS WILL VOTE ON THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION REFERENDUM this coming November. Democracy nor education can work without participation which is a big reason why New York State is in such a precarious cultural and economic position.
