*THIS* is a DISASTER to USA
& MSM is NOT covering it

ultra-conservatives & Kochs, Mercers wanna REWRITE US Constitution
need 34 states to ok that
Iowa is becoming 28th

u think Trump is a DISASTER?
wait til RWNJ change Constitution
can make *anything* law
desmoinesregister.com/story/news/pol…
ppl don't seem 2 understand that a #ConstitutionalConvention means that EVERYTHING the USA stands 4 can be thrown out
all our rights, freedoms & civil liberties
our ENTIRE form of gov't can be thrown out the window

short desc of #ConCon
acluidaho.org/en/legislation…
we're so used to saying "They can't do THAT"
cuz "it" whatever it is at the moment
wud be UNCONSTITUTIONAL
*not* if u re-write it!
we can b police state/a theocracy/we can bring back slavery, we can have a Handmaid's Tale society where women r not allowed 2 own property nor vote
ur saying "that can't happen"
there r ZERO limits 2 rewriting the Constitution

did u think #Charlottesville couldn't happen?
*who* do u think is pushing 4 #ConstitutionalConvention?
same types of ppl
& they r NOT bound to represent the ppl of US nor to have our interests in mind
read link that states:
* quotes 2 SCOTUS Judges stating it's TERRIBLE IDEA
* #ConstitutionalConvention would be uncontrollable
* making Amendments *IS* same as INITIATING the #ConstitutionalConvention
* NO LIMITS 2 what can be changed
* Special Interests

cbpp.org/research/state…
oops, last entry should be
* Special Interests can take over what gets put into new USA Constitution

& don't forget, ALL our laws need 2b in accordance with the Constitution
so if *now* we say "they can't do THAT, it's UNCONSTITUTIONAL"
well, not if they change the Constitution!
here's another great article on #ConstitutionalConvention which says that it's "arch-conservatives" including ALEC pushing it

(pls note that there's at least 1 far-Right group opposing it, claiming that it's the Left that's behind it. NOPE!)
washingtonpost.com/posteverything…
here's website for #ConstitutionalConvention also called #ConventionOfStates

note link in middle
"Radical Leftist Groups Against a Convention of States is Growing"
& pix of who represents Left is Soros =RWNJ fave Lefty to Hate
conventionofstates.com/latest
#ConCon website lists many of our great Left groups who are publicly against #ConstitutionalConvention
conventionofstates.com/news/the-numbe…
state map & what point in calling for #ConstitutionalConvention
& note error in 1st tweet=Iowa wud make 29th state once it clears state Sen.-of 34 needed 2 invoke #ConCon

CALL ur state level Reps & tell them 2 RESCIND
or 2 NOT PASS BBA
BBA=Bal Budget Amendmend=asking 4 #ConCOn
contact Dem candidates for state office & demand they address #ConCon issue!

we can raise awareness of this issue by demanding elected state MoC & candidates for state Congress take a public stance on #ConstitutionalConvention
KNOW the DIFFERENCE between Article 5 & Article 6 changes 2 Constitution

Article 5=also called #ConstitutionalConvention #ConCon #ConventionOfStates #BBA #BalanceBudgetAmendment
can 100% throw it out completely

Article 6 adds/drops Amendments=seeks 2 keep & improve Constitution
