I caught up with Move To Amend's David Cobb on a recent visit to NYC as part of his nationwide barnstorming tour to educate people on the need to amend the U.S. Constitution to overturn the Jan 21, 2010 Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The full presentation is divided into 13 easy pieces, plus two parts from the Q&A session afterward. Most parts are under five minutes. The longest is just over seven. Enjoy it in bite-size chunks or burn through the whole thing. Either way, please take the time to get up to speed with the one of the most important issues facing American citizens today and into the foreseeable future.

Wow, in 1789 we ratified the US Constitution forming our government by we the people with guarenteed Rights for Individuals.

But as David Cobb says in part 10, this only applied to 5% of the people in the USA. The people with Rights had to be men, white, and had to have a certain amount of land in order to vote and have these Constitutional Rights. Not 1%, but close. Only 5% enjoyed the Rights of the US Constitition and no Women could vote or exercise these "Rights".

I think I read that this year somewhere, but am enjoying this video.

It is sobering to consider. Also his point that the Constitution was designed more to protect property rights than human rights. But people often think of the Amendments and not the Articles when considering Constitutionality. He has a good grasp on things. Glad you're enjoying the video. Please share it frequently. ;-)

This comment no longer applied once I got over my fit of pique. Sorry, everyone. :)
