In the past 5 years…

Mar 10, 2015

It’s been more than 5 years since the Supreme Court’s fateful decision in Citizens United v F.E.C. Since then we’ve seen:

— The rise to power of Charles and David Koch

— The invention of the “SuperPAC”

— The unconstricted flow of money into our elections

What’s happening before us is a fundamental erosion of our democracy. Big money groups — most prominently those on the far right — are seizing more and more control of America’s electoral system.

This was painfully evident in the 2014 elections. Right wing groups were dominant spenders in elections both small and large — and it paid dividends through a massive Republican wave.

Regardless of whether you lean right or left in your politics, we can’t allow ourselves to have a system that’s up for sale to the highest bidder.

We need change … but it won’t be easy. Amending the Constitution is a major undertaking. To start, we need tens of thousands of citizens like you to stand up in support of this movement.

Will you join us now and add your name as a citizen co-sponsor for a Constitutional Amendment to overturn Citizens United?

We need your support. And we thank you for it.
