The below comments were taken from the site http://www.getmoneyout.com This idea is sonsored by the Dylan Ratigan show (MSNBC, 4pm ET). If you have read other things, I have written, then you know that I feel that the average person can't compete against the rich in trying to elect people who will represent all citizens and not just the rich. I always knew that both of our political parties suck up to the rich, but this year the republican party has been taking this suck up to the rich to such a high level that even the most non-involved voter has no doubt, which group the republicans favor and which groups the Republicans don't favor. Still, I must applaud them for their honesty, which is a rare thing in politics.
Bailouts. War. Unemployment. Our government is bought, and we’re angry. Now, we’re turning our anger into positive action. By signing this petition, you are joining our campaign to get money out of politics. Our politicians won’t do this. But we will. We will become an unrelenting, organized wave advocating a Constitutional amendment to get money out of politics.
As the petition grows, we can use my show on MSNBC as a platform to force this issue to the center of the 2012 elections. Join us. Sign up. Tell your friends. Facebook it. Tweet it. #GetMoneyOut.From our Washington Insider, Jimmy Williams, here is our Constitutional Amendment:
"No person, corporation or business entity of any type, domestic or foreign, shall be allowed to contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any candidate for Federal office or to contribute money on behalf of or opposed to any type of campaign for Federal office. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, campaign contributions to candidates for Federal office shall not constitute speech of any kind as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution or any amendment to the U. S. Constitution. Congress shall set forth a federal holiday for the purposes of voting for candidates for Federal office."
