    We attended a meeting and felt the best action is to have a huge CALL-in/Write-in/E-mail contact form day on the MONDAY after JAN 21st anniversary of the horrible supreme court decision. We need to give that decision a better name than the slanted language Karl Rove used to name it re. “Citizens United.” We need to start calling THE RIGHT WING SUPREME COURT DECISION THAT DESTROYED DEMOCRACY, or THE SUPREME COURT DECISION THAT MADE CORPORATIONS into PEOPLE and FREE SPEECH into MONEY, or some other catch phrase. This slanted title “Citizens United” is a Karl Rove idea no doubt and we must UNTWIST THE LANGUAGE for our Campaining Purposes. Call it “PUBLIC CITIZENS VERSUS the RIGHT WING DECISION that DESTROYED DEMOCRACY, and the explanation can be a subtext. MONDAY JAN 20th should be a super call in, telephone flood and contact form flood and letter writing message sending day of action! YES!!!

      I think “Corporations United” sums it up quite nicely.

    Should we be calling for a CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION TO AMEND THE CONSTITUTION rather than supporting the Senators Schumer, Udall, etc. bill that has been put before the senate, as Bernie Sanders explained the current bill isn’t strong and fool proof enough? Reply with what exactly we should say and demand on CALL IN and WRITE IN campaigns to our state and federal legislators. What do we want to demand in ONE sentence or two? For flyers, calls, messages. PLEASE REPLY!

      The “In The Spirit of America” Proposed Constitutional Amendment 28:
      • Nationalizes the Federal Reserve & pays-off the national debt – no more borrowing
      • Mandates full employment, unemployment compensation & Medicare for All –
      • Repairs voting & elections: corporations are not humans & money is not speech –
      • Repeals the “Patriot Act” & the Bankruptcy Act of 2005 – restores civil rights –
      • Includes the Equal Rights Amendment, student loan relief, progressive taxation –
      and much more … Read the whole Amendment.

    I think we need to boil this down to a few fundamental points.
    1) When corporations compete with money against individuals with money, they win. This is fundamentally unequal representation before the law and contravenes the intent of the 14th amendment.
    2) Our representatives in government should be solely there to represent us. If they cannot raise the funds needed to get elected to office by the PEOPLE they represent, then they probably shouldn’t be there.
    3) A new law or amendment should be simple and straightforward. For Example: If you cannot vote for the candidate, then you cannot contribute to the candidate. This would eliminate all corporate/union/party funding of candidates. Also, it keeps people in Minnesota from contributing to races in Texas. If a representative can only accept funds from their constituents, it is more likely that they will listen to their constituents voices as they vote on issues.

    It is a simple slogan, too! “IF YOU CAN’T VOTE; YOU CAN’T CONTRIBUTE”

  5. More than 200 groups gathered in living rooms, university classrooms, interfaith centers, cafes and more than a dozen Occupy sites to organize for a constitutional amendment to undo the Supreme Court’s ruling « Eslkevin's Blog

    […] These patriots, coming together in 42 states around the nation, were motivated by the determined and inspiring words of Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). And they heard from their fellow citizens in Boulder, Colorado, who organized to pass a referendum by a stunning 3-to-1 margin demanding a constitutional amendment. Read about the gatherings on our blog post, where you can find a link to Senator Sanders’ remarks… […]
