Eliminate All Political Campaign Advertising

Why is this important?

Candidates for public office depend on large donations to pay for radio, TV & print ads to win elections. The more money they raise, the better their chances. In this way, issues they support or don't support are often influenced by wealthy corporations that—partly due to the Supreme Court's "Citizen's United" decision—can donate unlimited amounts of money to their campaigns. This amounts to a sort of legal political corruption. Signing this petition is a step toward returning our political process to a fair system as the authors of our constitution intended it to be. Also, political ads are often misleading and extremely annoying.

Reasons for signing

  • The money spent on political ads which only serve to insight people and don't really get at the truth is a total waste.
  • I hope this passes it is unconscionable to spend billions of dollars on elections while so many have no health insurance, jobs or hope for the future of our country!
  • I would love to see this pass, especially with our economic situation, it is sickening to spend billions, when there are so many homeless, jobless americans!
