The founding principle of one person, one vote has been eroded in the USA with the inflows of dark money into politics. That erosion was accelerated by the by Citizens United Supreme Court ruling. Corporations are economic entities and should not have the same rights as individuals. Money should not translate into speech. The end result is the destruction of trust in the democratic system due to the playing field not being level. Corporations should compete in the market on the products and services they provide not on the amount of money they spend to bend the rules by buying politicians. The result is a financial race to the bottom. There is always a company with a bigger bank account to outspend you. American Promise represents a chance to do our bit to fix this system for our children by making meaningful change through a Constitutional Amendment.
