We need to start a massive letter writing campaign and get organization on the ground now. Make it clear that any politician that doesn't take a stand against corrupt money in politics is going to be out of a job.

If this movement is going to accomplish anything, changing the Constitution to keep money out of politics has to be the first step.

Here is one example of the proposed language.

How about organizing for an Article V Constitutional convention? I can see that this movement can go somewhere if the present leaders, if there are any, have a vision where they want to go. Someone should begin a movement within the movement to establish a vision of what their motives are. Then establish some goals and a framework of how they intend to get there. Every State and town will need leaders and organizers. One worthy goal could be to get every State legislature to petition Congress to call an Article V convention. Read about it @ www.foavc.org. Everything you want to know why and how we need to change our Constitution is explained here.
