STOP ConCon is a grassroots movement first organized in May 2016 to stop the Convention of States and other variations on an Article V Convention to change the U.S. Constitution.

A successful constitutional convention would require what existed in 1787, which included:

(1) Framers who loved our country after risking their lives for it against tyranny
(2) secrecy from the media
(3) disinterest by liberals
(4) strong, selfless conservative leadership (George Washington)

None of those conditions exists at this time, when all of those conditions would be essential for success.

The provision in Article V of the Constitution for a constitutional convention is there for the same reason there is an emergency exit on an airplane. It is not to be used unless absolutely necessary to save everyone's life.

If it is simply a matter of people not obeying the current Constitution, then they are not going to abide by a new one either. Worse, a new constitutional convention would open the door to immense liberal mischief to change the quintessential conservative document, our current Constitution.
