Do you want to help run your government for the people by the people in a modern way it has never been done before? Do you want Big Money's influence out and your influence in?

 

We need to be better prepared than Egypt and many others including often ourselves, may have been last week-end and we need to go one step farther than they mention here. We also need to start searching for those less corruptible or corrupted people to replace many who won't or can't make the cut we the people are planning for them.

 

We might disagree on many things individually but nearly all Americans I have ever spoken to can agree with this  “American Anti-Corruption Act” plan! Divided we fall .......but YES! UNITED WE STAND!  The American Anti-Corruption Act does fit what we all have in common and can stand united on! Those politicians that don’t stand with us will be gone! We can’t do anything right with big money in the middle of all honest efforts to do the right things for society.

 

The plan to empower “The People” also calls for small money to step up in mass and let’s not forget that part of the solving the puzzle of fixing the corruption of big money is to overwhelm big money with small monies collectively challenging big money. The old fashion “Up the ante” as you call it in cards will make it a high stake risk that could bankrupt even the biggest corporations, plus how could it be good for business to publicly bet against your customers and labor?

 

 This isn't a shrinking of the government! It is a massive expansion to include every citizen that cares enough to step up and govern with and by the people. We will fire those that don't represent us. Criminalize those that trade away national citizen interest for a cozy and usually high paid job for themselves or relatives or cater to big money to just hold their job an win the next election.

 

The American Anti-Corruption Act will give the real Message of what “CITIZENS UNITED” REALLY MEANS FOR OUR GOVERNMENT and will make illegal by it’s very nature the false Citizens United Act we have had forced on us by corruption at all levels.

 

 Supporting this act will also give many of our newly formed and forming democracies around the world a model act they can embrace to avoid the corruption of powers we have fallen into.  This we can offer as a moral example and gift from the “actual living, breathing, bleeding, citizens with heart beats” of America to the people of the world and lead the way they would love us to show them how to lead for themselves as well.  We will finally be all that most of the world dream for us, for each other and for ourselves. The bulk of those that sign this act will not have the paper hearts created by Lawyers to give corporate personhood, but will have the real hearts that out number those false persons and really make everything in the world happen.

The Koch brothers are spreading lies about Obamacare.

The Koch brothers are spreading lies about Obamacare. | Political Insight | Scoop.it

“…there is nothing in Obamacare that stops patients from choosing their own doctors, and people who get their insurance through their employer likely won't see any changes at all. And, while the Americans For Prosperity ad refers to higher healthcare premiums, we've seen insurance rates go down in states implementing the law - like California - and millions of Americans will qualify for subsidies to purchase healthcare through insurance exchanges.” – Thom Hartmann

Coffee Party USA's curator insight, March 15, 2013 6:42 AM

Sen. Bernie Sanders joins the movement to undo the Citizens United decision. Introducing the Democracy for People Amendment, senate bill S 535, he joins Rep. Theodore Deutch in the House who introduced Saving American Democracy, house bill HJ Res. 34. If we are going to remove corporate personhood and its corrosive effects on government we must support them both. By the People, for the People means living, breathing, human beings.

How Dark Money Flows Through the Koch Network

How Dark Money Flows Through the Koch Network | Political Insight | Scoop.it

by Al Shaw, Theodoric Meyer and Kim Barker, ProPublica

 

Fundraising by the libertarian billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch supports a tangle of nonprofits, sometimes referred to as the Kochtopus, all aimed at advancing conservative causes.

 

Two groups, the Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce and TC4 Trust, handed out almost $264 million from mid-2011 to October 2012 to 30 other nonprofits. Almost half of that went to the Center to Protect Patient Rights, which then funneled millions to a constellation of dark money groups, some of which also received money from Freedom Partners and TC4 Trust. Groups that got significant amounts of money from the Center, Freedom Partners and TC4 Trust reported political spending of more than $75 million in 2012. Much of the money flowed through what are known as “disregarded entities” — limited liability companies, or LLCs, that some of the groups have set up. TC4 Trust has folded and the Center to Protect Patient Rights no longer plays a central role in the Koch network, but many of these groups will be active in the 2014 election. [MORE]

Thom Hartmann: Why Fox News has the Right to Lie to Us

A must see. This video gives a brief but concise explaination of corporate personhood and its control of media. I understand a lot clearer now why the Koch brothers want to buy news outlets. Thanks for this suggestion, Marianne Castiglis.

Rhett Rebold's curator insight, March 17, 2013 5:52 PM

It's a challenge to prosecute slander and liabel since corporations are now US Citizens. Not letting them lie with impunity would infringe their free speech.

A quick and concise explanation of how personhood is infecting "news".
