Nation For Sale
Our Nation is For Sale
Why are approval ratings for Congress, at just 9%, at the lowest levels ever recorded?
Why does a plurality of Americans believe that most members of Congress are corrupt?
This is a truly universal issue that unites us all.
Today, rather than representing We the People, Congress represents those corporations that influence and control our legislators by spending as much money as they want to help political candidates win elections. We the People need to fix this.
The goal of Move to Amend is to fix this problem by passing an amendment to the Constitution that forces Congress to once again represent We the People.
Please join us in helping to get this amendment passed.
We all know that money is part of the problem. 75% of Americans believe that money buys results in Congress, and 72% support limiting corporate spending on election campaigns. While we are a divided country, this is one issue that we all, Republicans and Democrats, Tea Partiers and Occupiers, agree on.
Did you know that under U.S. law, a corporation is a person? In fact, according to a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, a corporation's right to free speech allows it to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence elections and legislation!
No wonder our government has been bought and paid for by the most powerful and unaccountable interests in human history!
We the People have an important opportunity to roll back the runaway train of corporate power and corruption that has effectively hijacked government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
We can fix what started right here in Santa Clara County in 1886—one key is to eliminate the notion of corporate personhood from any possible interpretation of the U.S. Constitution for now and forever.
The other key is explicitly eliminating the doctrine that spending money is equivalent to exercising free speech.
