Abolish Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

We the undersigned, being eligible voters in the United States of America, support a permissive referendum to reverse the Supreme Court's decision on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.
There are currently 1,611 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

We need to eliminate the rights of corporations to financially back political candidates. The two major parties spent nearly 1.75 BILLION DOLLARS vying for the presidency in 2012. Of that colossal number 278 MILLION DOLLARS came from individual and organization Super PACs. Undisclosed donor funds ("dark money") is estimated at 400 MILLION DOLLARS. Because of the Supreme Court's 2010 decision on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, unions, corporations and nonprofit organizations are allowed to give unlimited funds toward their choice for president of the United States. This Supreme Court decision all but eliminates the democratic process. It must be vetoed by the people.
