From the Citizens of America, to all that may hear us, hear this,
We the People of the United States, in order to sustain a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity; to further ensure that Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth do hereby declare the stench of money has corrupted our Union and our Representatives answer not to the People but to moneyed interests. To remove this stench from our Democracy, we demand a ban of all moneys, favors, and other compensation to any elected or appointed official beyond that established by the Constitution of these United States, acceptance or offering of said outside compensation to be prosecuted as a bribe punishable under Law. Further, we demand the establishment of a Federal Election Fund which shall finance all public elections for any candidate to Federal Office having collected supporting and unique signatures from 1,000,000 or more registered voters of these United States, said fund being the sole source of funding to be used in campaigning so the poorer Citizens of our Nation are not disenfranchised.
We are the People, and we demand the return of our Government.
