We elect people to go into state and federal government to represent us and our interests. They don't! Too many of our elected representatives act in the interest of corporate America, whose self interest is international, We are finally holding our elected officials accountable. We are watching. It's them-- the corporations or us-- the people. Stand up for the American people or we will act at the polls! We have had enough!

  • AT&T: Stop Giving Our Money to Rick Perry
    AT&T gave $462,739 to Rick Perry since 2000. Refuse to support Rick Perry's anti-choice, anti-GLBT & anti-environmental stances, to name but a few of the many issues progressive voters care about and Rick Perry fights against. Switch phone companies AND demand AT&T stop subsidizing radical politicians like Perry.

  • Corporations are NOT people
    The recent Supreme Court decisions culminating in Citizens United have given corporate interests unprecedented leverage in controlling the political arena. These corporate interests have corrupted the political process and threaten to turn the United States into an oligarchy. It's time for a Constitutional amendment to return the power of the people TO the people.

  • Strike down assumed legality of granting personhood to corporations.
    Court Reporter Davis, placed The U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Waite's "pre-testimony statement" about “personhood” in the written Statement of Facts, with the statement, “The defendant Corporations are persons within the intent of the clause of section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States,. In effect, corporate personhood was not decided by the case "of Santa Clara County v Southern Pacific Railroad. The reporter had inadvertently included comments made by the Chief Justice outside the decision's scope. no one corrected the record and soon judges were referencing those comments as "precedent that corporations are people. We need a law which redresses this erroneous reporting of the court;s findings in that case.
