Public Funding of Elected Officials

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

Petition Statement

A 28th amendment to the Constitution shall be enacted to fund campaigns of elected public officials through public taxes.

All donations, gratuities or outside monies from sources other than public taxes are prohibited.

Corporate Personhood, as enacted by Citizens United Vs F.E.C, is to be repealed.
There are currently 545 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

Enact public funding of legislator's campaigns by a 28th amendment to the Constitution.

Citizens best interests will not be honestly represented until private funding is eliminated from public official's campaigns and non persons are permanently 'de-personated'.

This must be done by enacting a 28th amendment to our Constitution otherwise, the issue will be fought repeatedly in Congress.

Publicly funding all election campaigns during a presidential election cycle will cost less than $45 per registered voter, and less for off cycle elections - cheap for real representation.

Sign the petition and tell our representatives we demand the end of the biggest conflict of interest on this planet - the flagrant purchase of our elected officials by those who stand to profit by that purchase.
