Rhode Island 4th state to Call for Amendment to Undo Citizens United


Free Speech for People

Rhode Island has just become the 4th state to officially call for a U.S. constitutional amendment:

"to effectively overturn the holding of Citizens United and it’s [sic] progeny and to permit the governments of the United States and the several states to regulate and restrict independent political expenditures by corporations and wealthy individuals"

Congratulations to the people of Rhode Island, who've made history today, and are now at the leading edge of our nationwide movement to take America back from corporate control and put our democracy back in the hands of we, the people.

One small step. But meanwhile the Fascist Five on the Supreme Court are still making pro-corporate, unconstitutional decisions that will pollute our legal system for decades, if not centuries.

We need the House of Representatives to impeach, try, and sentence these traitors to the Constitution. Then we need their previous 5-4 decisions reexamined to throw out the ones that are obviously unconstitutional.

I haven't heard a peep from the Democrats about removing this clear and present danger to our democracy. It's so 1% of them.


Yet another reason I vote Green Party.
