Forum Post: Move to Amend, an Interview With David Cobb

Move to Amend is a national group with a single focus: to pass a constitutional amendment that ends corporate personhood and the legal rights that it gives to corporations and to end the idea that money is speech to stop the nearly endless amount of money being used to influence our elections, public policy, and government officials.

virtually every problem we have - jobs - taxes - wall st - guns - military - - - -

is based on this purchase of our democracy by crapitalism
the MTA/Cobb Amendment is already in congress HJR29
for the companion OWS site with 100+ videos & documents:

I'm glad to see you support removing money from politics, and also union contributions. Also glad to see you support the work the Green Party does, as in Move to Amend and the tour to continue educating the public. These are things I support as well.

Twinke.

Gee thanks, but he never said any of those things, so as usual you've managed to twist things beyond recognition.

That you managed to toss in another baiting dig at unions, does not go unnoticed.

Your hate of the 99% continues, unabated.

I thought you supported MTA?

I do, but I refuse to be baited by your continuing bullshit and thinly veiled hate of the 99%.

I thought you supported them?

You don't, so stop lying about it.

Let me clarify for you. From MTA:

"What About Unions and Non-Profits?

Our perspective is that no "artificial entities" - non human beings - should have rights spelled out under the Constitution. This includes unions and non-profit corporations.

Rights do not come from government, we have them because of the very fact that we are alive - they are inalienable. Given that, government does not actually have authority to grant rights to entities created by law. Certain powers and privileges may be needed and desired for certain entities over others, but not constitutional rights.

Non-profits do serve a different function than that for-profit corporations, as do unions. But these powers and privileges need to be spelled out legislatively - through a democratic process - not granted by the legal system under the Constitution."

You prob didnt realize it, prob wanted to know. We need more democratic process in the country to solve these things. Union contributions can lead to lots of corruption too, as you prob know.

Money talks, and those without it get left in the dust.

Im not baiting, I was just surprised to see you supporting it, being that its an all money thing, not just corporations. You havent really spoken on MTA before, until now.

Trust me, I would love nothing more than to take all the money out of the campaigns, make them actually campaign without the money backing. See who is who, who wants to work vs who wants to sit back and run hate commercials.

Baiting is about all you do anymore. Lying about me, is just more baiting.

Especially, since you don't use honesty about yourself.

[-] -1 points by HCHC4 (-28) 9 months ago

I support them. This is something me and you agree on. Not everything is a line in the sand shooz.

[-] 1 points by shooz (17866) 9 months ago

Then you should stop baiting me and stop hating the 99%.

It's that simple.
