Convention, Vention, What's Your Tension?

Yeah, a Constitutional Convention would likely be a clusterfuck, but also give the Empire...uh, Republic a chance to finally dissolve.  Anyway, would it be a typical Article V thing, or something novel?  Would our media cover it properly?  Would it give pedants conniption fits?  Think of all the fun we could have!

If the Republican-fascist stay in power I can imagine a lot of people in a lot of places will be ready for secession.

A Con-con would, as you say, turn into a con-con-con. That is if you would call what they call "conservatives" "conservatives" and not fascists.

I used to think it might be worth risking but now I'm afraid we'd end up with something Putin wrote.
