RECLAIM OUR AMERICAN DEMOCRACY (R.O.A.D)
FROM BIG MONEY
The growing ability of corporations and very wealthy individuals to interfere with America’s democratic institutions should alarm you, regardless of your political viewpoint. The corrosive influence of big money in elections and lawmaking is obvious and indisputable. It is making a mockery of “one person, one vote”. Polls show that the overwhelming majority of Americans believe something must be done to remedy this situation.
The January, 2010 ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court in Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission changed our political landscape and endangered the independence of our government at all levels. Money has always had an influence on elections and lawmaking. However, this ruling opened the floodgates to unprecedented, unlimited and undisclosed spending by corporations and wealthy individuals. Corrective action is urgently needed.
