The Koch Brothers Want To Rewrite The Constitution. They May Succeed.

The Wisconsin Assembly votes Wednesday on whether to call for a convention to change the U.S. Constitution. While that in itself is surprising — the American people have never exercised their legally enshrined right to convene a new Constitutional convention — what’s more surprising is that pro-business groups with ties to the Koch brothers have pushed for similar legislation in more than 30 states, and they’ve been remarkably successful: A dozen states have passed bills calling for a convention that would produce an altered Constitution that would likely limit federal spending and power.

4. The failure of the corporate media, ABC, NBC, CBS, and the cable channels, MSNBC, CNN

I don't even know if PBS is reporting this and doing an in depth reporting like on Frontline to expose this danger.
