3. Citizens exercising their liberties through the political process is never sleazy.
If the right-wing ever managed to garner THAT much popular support for an issue without lying or manipulating the underlying reasons, then no, we wouldn't be screaming. The problem with your reasoning is that the right-wing NEVER does things like this without lies and manipulation. The right-wing is not morally equivalent to the left wing. We aren't playing checkers, where both sides are the same save for their colors--this is deadly serious stuff and lives hang in the balance.

And it looks like there's a MUCH quicker way--calling a real, honest-to-god constitutional convention. It looks like all that's required to call for a CC in Wisconsin is for the legislature to pass a bill proposing a CC, and for people to vote Yea or Nay. It's never been done before, but that doesn't mean it can't be done. :)
