OCCUPY IS WORKING – HOW?
Temecula, CA – There is exciting news for those who want to overturn the horriffic Citizens United vs. FEC Supreme Court decision, which opened the floodgates for unlimited amounts of corporate money to corrupt our political system. The California state Assembly just voted to pass AJR 22, a resolution calling on the U.S. Congress to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and send it to the states for ratification.
AJR 22 now goes to the state Senate. If it passes there, California will be among the first states to officially call on Congress to amend the Constitution to undo Citizens United. The Occupy Movement is working because it is still [and started] bringing notice to issues that are finally getting the attention they deserve to attract a sheeple America to do the right thing. Evil cannot stand a spotlight on it. You don’t get mugged on a well lit street. Also see any recent article about Jason Russell and really research Joseph Kony. Zimmerman and Sandusky are Art Linkletter and Mr. Ed next to Kony.Sadly, we might need to work really hard to get unlimited corporate money out of politics and re-establish the common sense and democratic view that only people are people, not corporations. With 85% of the public opposed to the Citizens United decision, there should be a potential for a broad coalition of Democrats, Republicans and Independents who all want to restore our democracy. If there isn’t, you better start looking for Plan B. For now your state senator, Joel Anderson, needs to hear from you, regardless of where he/she stands on this issue.
It won't be easy to pass a constitutional amendment.
We need to show all the state senators that their constituents are part of a broad movement demanding action — not only to convince them that overturning Citizens United is the right thing to do, but also that it's possible.
