    I'd appreciate when someone uses one of my articles or a major portion thereof that they cite me as a reference. That article does have copyright attached to it and while I have no problem with the material being used, I think the person who posted it should have mentioned me, Bill Walker of as the author.

    The article can be found in its full length on Nolan For everyone's information the questions were posed by Phyllis Schlafly an opponent of a convention, that is to say, someone who opposes a convention.

    One thing I noticed in this was that the author failed to mention how may states have applied for a convention cal or how many applications have been submitted. Remember if 34 states submit 34 applications (two thirds of the current number of 50 states) Congress must call. For the record, the public record shows 49 states have submitted 748 applications for a convention call. You can read the applications at

    The concern about ALEC is legitimate but if you go to the site or to Nolan Chart and begin reading the articles I have written along with the lawsuits you'll quickly see that Natelson's and thus ALEC's positions are bogus and do not reflect true fact.
