Petition - A Petition to Support the Saving American Democracy Amendment : Bernie Sanders - U.S. Senator for Vermont | American Democracy for Sale to the Highest Bidder | Scoop.it

I just love Bernie Sanders. And frankly it is hard to imagine that anyone from EITHER party would have a problem with Bernie's actions and statements here. This fabulous speech of Bernies while proposing this amendment speaks for itself. I couldn't do any justice to it by summing it up in a sentence or two - this is a MUST HEAR speech for every American who cares about democracy slipping away from the hands of the people in our country.
