Overturn Citizens United!

Getting Big Money out of politics is the defining issue of our time -- until we solve it, everything we care about will be ruled by the desires of the rich, rather than the needs of the voters and the world. Please sign this petition for the Overturn Citizens United Act (SB 1272) and ask your friends to sign so that California voters can have a chance this November to tell Congress to pass a constitutional amendment that says that corporations aren't people and money isn't speech!

Overturn Citizens United!

When the top .01% decide government matters, it is to line their pockets. One example: Oil Companies succeed when we need to turn to Green Energy. And, public education suffers when we spend money on wars for oil. The rich shouldn't decide who gets nominated and elected nor what propositions win! We the PEOPLE, the flesh and blood People, do. But, since 2010, super Pacs from world-wide corporations and billionaire-owners have secretly influenced election outcomes with their money. We must Overturn "Citizens United" which made that possible when it decreed that "corporations are people" and that "money is free speech." This bill, SB1272, will pose the question, on the next election ballot, "Do you agree or disagree..." to those two ideas from the "Citizens United v. FCC" Supreme Court decision of 2010. For wonks, like me: SB1272 will back up AJR#1, which has actually called for a Constitutional Convention (under Article V) to decide this matter. This effort, too, will need your pressure, to enforce, even tho' it has WON in CA and we are the 2nd state to have done so. Thirty-seven states are needed for that route.

Please, read banning corporate person-hood, which some refer with a nick name for a supreme court decision to give corporations human rights, called "Citizens United." Here is an article with a video link at the bottom for those willing to promote an educated citizenry: While you are at that web site, consider the work of restoring ancient wisdom for practical change today and look for up coming events in YOUR area. Education is free, we just have to want it. Action is required, we just have to do something. And this Pachamama Community is the place to join amazing learning communities and powerful actions to change their lives at home and in their communities. Thanks for reading all this. I appreciate your willingness to connect even on social media. Hope to see you soon, ~RuthAnn

Overturn Citizens United!

I'm a 'baby-boomer', and, like many of my friends and family, I've seen and been impacted by the fractious changes in our country thanks to the unrestricted influence of those with money having free rein to literally buy candidates and elections, in direct contradiction to the 'one-man-one-vote' concept laid down by the founding fathers. If allowed to continue, the legacy of Citizens United will effectively be the end of our democratic republic and the beginning of a capitalist oligarchy/plutocracy. Future generations will be subjected to a new 'dark age' with stark distinctions between the 'haves' and the 'have-nots', freedoms and rights available only to those who can afford them. The Koch brothers and their ilk will get their wish and become the new overlords, with the working class relegated to indentured servitude with no chance to achieve, no reason to dream. This is not the first attempt by power brokers to topple our government 'by the people', but we MUST repudiate this foul ruling and take back what is ours!
