ACTION ALERT: Stop the TPP Fast Track Attempt

March 6, 2015

Perhaps some of the most under-reported news last year was the fact that a real movement formed in the US that stopped the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) fast track in Congress.

We knew then that the TPP wasn’t dead, and it would reappear in the next Congress. We were right: rumors are circulating on Capitol Hill that TPP fast track legislation will be introduced soon — as early as this week.

The TPP is still shrouded in secrecy, but the leaked parts are frightening. From food, medicine and the environment to the Internet and intelligence, the TPP is moving us towards complete corporate domination including trading away our own sovereignty and justice system for the sake of profit. It is more than a free trade deal, it’s a free for all for multi-national corporations.

Take action! Contact your members of Congress today: https://oneclickpolitics.com/promo/NS

Seeking to Curb Corporate Influence on Politics

March 6, 2013

HARRISBURG, PA - They can't breathe. They don't bleed. They don't digest food.

But, as Mitt Romney famously blurted, corporations are people - at least under the law. In the Citizens United decision in 2010, for instance, the Supreme Court recognized that corporations have the constitutional right of free speech, something most people assumed belonged to actual carbon-based life-forms.

Stating the Case Against Corporate Personhood

March 27, 2013

Mount Shasta, Calif. -- David Cobb is a dynamic, forceful, and as he admits, an angry speaker. And he is on a mission. Kicking off a 20 plus city northern California barnstorm tour in Mount Shasta March 24, Cobb’s mission is nothing less than amending the Constitution of the United States to include that “A corporation is not a person” and that “Money is not speech and can be regulated.”

“I’m a proud, patriotic and pissed off American citizen,” the 2004 Green Party candidate for president said. “Money is not free speech.”
