Con Con

A Con Con -- short for a new "constitutional convention" -- would be an unprecedented assembly of representatives nationwide in order to rewrite the Constitution as permitted by its Article V. Sometimes this is euphemistically promoted as an "Article V" convention, despite how most people do not know what Article V is and that Congress has complete control over Article V conventions.

It is expected by many that the media and a relatively small number of people would dominate the process, with predictably liberal results.[1]

As Chief Justice Warren Burger stated:[2]

A constitutional Convention today would be a free-for-all for special interest groups, television coverage, and press speculation.
