Get Money Out
Get Money Out is an online petition drive to get money out of politics. Their goal is a constitutional amendment that will prohibit all people, and all business entities of any type, from contributing money — directly or indirectly — to any candidate for federal office.
It’ll be an uphill battle. (How’s that for an understatement?) But they’re hoping that with enough signatures, this can become a major issue for the 2012 elections.
About 80% of Americans are against the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling which opened the floodgates to unlimited “campaign contributions” (this used to be called bribery) to politicians. This is one issue that cuts across all party lines and socioeconomic groups.
Hope you’ll check out their site and sign the petition.
