Urge Congress to redefine corporations as noncitizens

The recent presidential election process has certainly made us aware of one thing, if nothing else. We simply must do something to get big money out of the process! The spending for this election was obscene!

With the concern of sensible citizens, working together with various organizations pushing for needed improvement, we will be able to return some sanity to the process. If we’re not able to do that, then very soon those with deep pockets will simply buy the type of government they want, to the detriment of any who disagree with them. We will be powerless to stop them.

Please get involved. Urge your representatives to begin immediately to pass legislation which reverses the “Citizens United” decision by declaring that corporations are not citizens with citizens’ rights. Let’s not let the next election process bring us more of what we just witnessed.

Get involved by going to freespeechforpeople.org and learn how you may be able to help.
