"Democracy Spring" is Just the Newest Label on an Old Package - ConCon's Lessig is At It Again
It was not a surprise, after reading the story on Breitbart.com about "the largest civil disobedience action of the century", to find that Professor Lawrence Lessig is one of the main coordinators of this planned action. Although using Trump as the excuse-of-the-day, Lessig never misses any opportunity to push for his version of campaign finance reform, which was what his support of a Constitutional Convention/Convention of States with Mark Meckler,Michael Farris and others was all about.
Democracy Spring, according to Breitbart.com: "some of the same radical groups involved in shutting down Donald Trump's Chicago rally last week are plotting a mass civil disobedience movement to begin next month." Well, of course, they are the same groups. They are always the same. Most of these sponsoring groups are also behind the Leftist's version of a ConCon, among them, Lessig's Rootstrikers, Cenk Uygar and his Wolf Pack as well as Medea Benjamin's Code Pink. You will see many of the same here on their MoveToAmend site.Why? Campaign finance reform. Anyone who cannot figure out that reform they want will ensure their power indefinitely is naive, indeed. Why do you think Obama was so furious with the SCOTUS ruling on that topic? It's a vital part of their vision.
So, what has this to do with Trump? Nothing (as he has not even taken big PAC money for his campaign). He is just their latest rallying point for the same push they have always had. Using the current high voltage emotions in the campaign season, they are pushing the very same things with a new label.
