I just got this news!

Great news! Thanks to you and other concerned citizens who called your state Senators, our nationwide movement scored a huge victory today, when the California Senate voted to approve resolution # AJR 22.

California is now the 6th state in the U.S. to formally call for a constitutional amendment:

"to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and to restore constitutional rights and fair elections to the people".

Congratulations, and thank you for standing up for America.

Sincerely,

- Peter

Yep, organizing movements begins with a few and grows. Each state that acts on the amendment makes a protest statement. It does not take a full victory to make a difference, so go for it. Also, our success is not determined by how many idiots are running these other states now. I think CU is going to make Americans disgusted with politics. That is, disgusted with the television show our politics has become.

I thought we were supposed to be amending the 14th amendment to replace "persons" with "natural persons."

Although the reasoning behind CU might still allow this political speech, as corporations are "associations of persons."

If I buy a share of stock of Lockheed does that give me the absolute right to enter any of its plants?

As more people realize what conservative governors are forgoing on refusing to expand Medicaid in their states, more states will vote Democratic. As they do, states will pass this amendment.

You're assuming the poor have power in those states. If they do, then why is the South still so miserable for the poor and non-white?
