Con Con 2001?

The recent election with its twists and turns has given rise to the question of the Electoral College process that was put into place by the founders. The fact remains that in order to dismantle the Electoral College system, the Constitution would have to be changed. Could this be another ploy to condition the American people to the idea that their Constitution is outdated? Could this be used to condition us to want a Constitutional Convention?

The "other side". The name alone should be the clue as to who's behind the CTD, promoting the abolition of the Electoral College. They've listed the 2000 Republican electors with contact info to harrass them. Object - to induce Bush Electors to vote for Gore. "Matt Grossmann (the name alone should be the clue) is CTD's Deputy Director for Grassroots Organizing. He has worked for several years conducting survey research and voting behavior studies at a California research institute. Matt has also worked in the public interest community in Washington, DC and in the British Parliament. Having written extensively on campaign finance reform and proportional representation, he leads CTD's efforts on reforming the electoral system."
