“The beauty of Constitutional amendments is that although they’re hard, they’re forever,” said Jeff Clements, American Promise Founder and President, in a radio interview with Keeping Democracy Alive.
“The threat that underlies everything else is the takeover of our political system by concentrated wealth and power,” says Clements. “And the only way to get it back is a Constitutional amendment because the Supreme Court in the Citizens United decision made the catastrophic mistake of saying ‘that’s just free speech.'”
Americans of all political stripes agree we must end the corruption of our democracy. Across the country, people are stepping up, leading by example, and showing what it means to be true patriots.
