so expecting our gov to hold them accountable for any thing is a ruse its not going to happen.Use this movement to allow the people to show their feeling toward the corporations that though greed and dishonesty hurt the rest of us.organize a boycott of a large corp.we know has done wrong.You have the people to make it hurt we are looking to send a message .it would be a netflix type message they lost hundreds of thousands of customers . if our elected officials wont penalize that behavior we should. example Bank of america could be a start they want to add a five dollar a month charge just for people who use their debit card other bank are waiting to see if it will work,what if they lost hundreds of thousands of customers think it might show what power we have.

Easier said than done because the foxes(banksters and lobbyists) are in charge of the henhouse(federal government). The solution I believe lies in the Constitution---specifically, an Article V Convention. See links below for more info:

It is time for all of us that our proud of our country to take it back from the crooked Corporations and the politicians that they have bought.

We need leaders who are honest, intelligent and care about the people that elected them. We all need to band together, right, left, the tea party and everyone else and demand that they are doing the work for the best of our country.

We have to spend more of our resources to catch and prosecute all of the crooks on Wall Street, Washington and hold all of our leader accountable. If a politician is caught taking a bribe then they should be jailed for a decade along with the person handing our the bribe.

Agreed!! My question is how to get the corruption in Washington more to the for front of this movement. There is a great risk of not having a central issue to focus on and for others to rally around. Our corrupt political system seems like a central theme that everyone can get behind.

Great link. Thanks for saving me the need to post it myself :)

Dylan Ratigan has been working on this for months. I've been saying since this movement began, that this one simple demand would start toppling dominoes throughout our political system.

The next step would be to get the lobbyists out of Washington. And come 2012, start tossing pledge signers out of congress. Your one and ONLY legitimate pledge, is that which you make to the American people when you enter the office they grace you with through their votes.

There is nothing wrong with the structure of our government, or its various institutions. The problems lie with the clowns we have running it. On BOTH sides of the aisle.

I'm in!! The only thing i think that needs to be taken into consideration is that once you eliminate campaign contributions we still have a problem of only the rich people being able to afford to run for office. And i would even take a step further on this bill and say if you've ever held a position on a for profit board of directors you can't run, and once your not allowed to be hired by one or recieve money from one.
