Will Connecticut vote to go it alone?

Conn Con Con!

How we can cut ties with the federal government by voting for a constitutional convention

Once a generation, Connecticut residents have the opportunity to recreate history. This year, we can become the first state to opt out of all burdensome federal regulations by convening a historic constitutional convention.

Article XIII of the Connecticut Constitution spells it out: Once every 20 years, voters are presented with an option to reconvene. When we go to our voting booths this November, in addition to the usual election choices, we will also be asked: “Shall there be a Constitutional Convention to amend or revise the Constitution of the State?”

At first this appears to be a useless procedure. The legislature can propose amendments to the state constitution at any time. So how is a convention different?

This year, we can say, “No more!” It is time for Connecticut to refederalize herself.</em>
