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!
A Bloomington group is petitioning an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that could change the face of future elections.
The petition, “Move to Amend: South Central Indiana,” stems from a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, in which the Court recognized corporations as people with the ability to endorse election candidates under the First Amendment.
This could lead to those with more money dominating the democratic process, said Charlotte Zietlow, the group’s press secretary.
