(Short version) What is a #ConCon? It is a Constitutional Convention made possible by a little known phrase in The Constitution which explains how to pass amendments.
The first way you know because our country has passed an amendment 27 times, the first 10 of which are together known as the Bill of Rights. Amendments that have passed include: 1: Freedom of Religion, speech, freedom of the press; 2: The Right to keep and bear arms;...
5. The right to due process (all in the Bill of Rights); 13. Abolishes slavery; 17. Election of U.S. Senators by popular vote; 19. Women’s right to vote; 24. Prohibits revocation of voting rights due to nonpayment of poll or any other tax;

#SouthCarolina, please call your state Reps & Senators to block these resolutions to call a Constitutional Convention. These are coming from all sides, left, right and in between! #KochBrothers org CoS, Tea Party & Citizens United orgs are getting desperate! #NoConConForAnything
The first two on this list are promoted by American-promise-dot-net. The third is another organization or possibly written by independent Republicans--13 of them. In all, SIXTEEN Republicans are endorsing legislation to ban Citizens United! Don't you think that's strange?!?
Here's evidence of American-promise-dot-net endorsing these first 2 bills H4174 and S0571! Tell your legislators to vote NO on these deceitful bills!
Republicans posing as Democrats! Wake up blue!!! #NoConCon

The threat of a Runaway Convention: Myth? Lie?

Paranoid argument invented by the left wing?

Nope, it’s REAL.

Let’s break this down.
#NoConCon
A lot of people think that fighting against a Constitutional Convention is tinfoil hatty. A lot of people are saying to me “oh, that will never happen” or “they need three-fourths of the states and they can’t get that,” or they just ignore me. #NoConCon
Well, it can happen and if it doesn’t, it’s because people are fighting like hell for it not to happen.

Democrats, I am going to try to warn you again about the Wolf PAC. If you’ve ever heard the expression “a wolf in sheep’s clothing” you know that this can be dangerous. The Wolf PAC = Young Turks (on youtube). #NoConCon
Young Turks are posing as progressive Democrats and there are many indications that they are not what they seem to be. Here’s an article that says they helped Trump get elected:

The Young Turks claim to be the Breitbart of the left, but honest:
Wolf PAC claims to be nonpartisan. This is confusing. But not really.
