“We appreciate our allies in this fight against artificial personhood, and the notion that money is “free speech” that is creating a flood of money from everywhere into our election campaigns, and we ask that you broadcast the following information to your members. Hopefully a few will take up the call and round up a friend or family member out
After Donald Trump ascended to the presidency, despite losing the popular vote by an astounding margin, there just wasn't a lot of cheering to be heard in Whoville. Trump is like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, with the notable exception that Trump doesn't have a heart, not even one ten sizes too small.
Our mission is to establish authentic, participatory democracy for all people, not corporations. Our first goal is to help build a diverse democracy movement capable of passing the We the People Amendment. The amendment abolishes corporate constitutional rights (corporate personhood) and money as free political speech.
If you're new to Move to Amend, or joining the growing resistance; if you want to do more, but don't know where to start, or if your #1 issue just hit a brick wall built by the corporatized state, we invite you to volunteer with Move to Amend, the Campaign to Legalize Democracy!
The month of May saw the Northeast Community Council become the 21st council to endorse the Move to Amend Resolution! There are several more councils that need to be visited, and this will happen in the coming months.
The notion that a corporation can claim constitutional rights of any sort is outrageously nonsensical.
"On Jan. 20, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court offered the momentous 5-4 Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling declaring that corporations are people. Five years later, 73 percent of Americans are opposed to Citizens United and see the absurdity of considering a corporate entity a person."
Today’s 5-4 ruling in the Hobby Lobby case is outrageous. Corporations, closely held or not, do not have religious beliefs. Only natural human beings have religious beliefs and freedoms. Allowing a person in their role as a business owner and employer to impose their beliefs on their employees violates the employees’ rights to religious freedom.
