The title says it all.
Go to getmoneyout.com and sign the petition for a constitutional amendment to get big money out of federal political campaigns once and for all. End the travesty of legalized graft which has been pernicious and terrible enough over many years even before reaching an ultimate apex of pure corruption with the recent supreme court decision in the so-called "Citizens United" case.
Imagine of all those billions were available to be spent on something that's actually worthwhile, like scholarships, medical research, clean energy R&D, support for the arts, or more immediate needs like repairing our crumbling infrastructure or providing full employment.
Our government belongs to us. It should not be for sale to the highest bidder. Can we all agree on that?
This is the single most central, crucial and urgent political cause of our age, and it won't be easy.
Getmoneyout.com. Sign it. Let's make it happen.
