Take Money Out of Politics

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

We hereby petition The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate to Amend the United States Constitution to prohibit all corporations from making contributions of any kind to members of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate and limit individual contributions to $100.00.

There are currently 1,308 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

For too long we in America have been living under a Government that is run by government of the people by the lobbyists for the rich and powerful corporations. Too many of our Senate and House of Representatives are owned and controlled by Corporations and their big money. When our US Supreme Court announced that Corporations are people, that was a strong indication that the Corporations and their big money also owned and controlled too many of our Supreme Court Justices.
The only way to cleanse our political system from the currently ongoing enormous corrupting influence is to get money out of politics. We need to free ourselves of Crony Capitalism whereby a rich and powerful few are running our government and reinstate Democratic Capitalism; that is, TRUE free market capitalism which is absolutely compatible with a true democracy. TRUE free market capitalism includes corporations and investors that assume all risks and are solely responsible for all losses as well as enjoying all profits after applicable taxes. Then once again we will have government of the people by the people and for the people. Supreme Court Justice Scalia proclaimed "money is speech" therefore this amendment to the Constitution is necessary because of its Freedom of Speech provision.
