President Obama: Add election reform to Democratic platform
To be delivered to:
President Barack Obama
President Obama, please add campaign reform to the Democratic platform. Please let people know that when you are reelected, you will introduce legislation that will protect the voices of 'real people' in the political process.
In the platform, please include:
1) Limits on money contributions from non-profits and corporations to all national, state and local elections;
2) Regulations of acceptable activities for non-profits and corporations for all national, state and local elections;
3) Full transparency of political donors for both Party and 3rd party political entities for all national, state and local elections; and
4) Legislation that prohibits foreign nationals or entities from contributing any money to either party or 3rd party political entities for all national, state, and local election.
The Citizens United decision has opened the floodgates for corporations and non-profit groups to pour undocumented and unlimited amounts of money into campaign advertising.
This ruling has all but silenced the voice of citizens in favor of non-human entities.
