I signed up at MoveOn.org and Public Citizen’s Don’tGetRolled.org, and then signed several petitions to start saving our democracy (what is left of it) from corporate influence. I thought that others may be interested in joining the fight. Below is a letter suggested by MoveOn.org – if you can think of a better on then create one – the purpose is to inspire action in Washington DC.
Subject: Help stop the flood of corporate money into our democracy
Yesterday, the Supreme Court announced a disastrous rollback of campaign finance laws. Their 5-4 decision gives corporations free rein to spend unlimited amounts of money on elections.
It’s a horrible decision. But we can undo some of the damage if Congress passes public financing of elections, which would give progressives and populists who don’t have industry backing the ability to compete.
I just signed a petition urging Congress to pass public financing of elections quickly–can you join me at the link below?
