Focus:Election
Action Request:Visit - online
Location:United States

I'm back.  I'm starting with an action you can take or adapt to let your reps know that you want your democracy back.  If enough peple take his action we can reclaim our democracy.

Following is the text of a letter I have written for my representatives.  Please use it to contact your own representatives,  If you don't know how to contact them go to www.votesmart.org/‎ put in your zip+4 and it will give you your reps and their contact info as well as their stands and votes on issues important to you.  the text of my letter follows:

Dear

 

I would like to request you, as my representative, put forward a constitutional amendment that reserves all constitutional rights to living, breathing human beings, specifically excluding all corporate and business entities.  This will entirely nullify the effects of the Citizens United decision.  The bill should also include a clause that specifically differentiates money from speech.  This will block the effects of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission decision.

 

These steps should diminish the influence of big money, either corporate or individual, and restore the power of the FEC to regulate how money can influence elections.  It should restore our democracy and put the government back into the hands of the vast majority of the people in this country rather than the wealthiest few.
