I join the overwhelming majority of Americans to demand an amendment to the United States Constitution to end the domination of big money in politics and give voice to all Americans.
 
I will stand with all Americans, without regard to party or other differences, and urge all candidates and elected officials to do the same, in order to pass and ratify such a constitutional amendment as soon as possible.

BIG IDEA: In another episode of I AM CORPORATE, HEAR ME ROAR, Exxon Mobil has tried to use the Bill of Rights to run the Massachusetts and New York Attorneys General out of business by inventing a Constitutional right to obstruct state investigations into allegations of fraud. This VOX op-ed points up the spurious nature of “free speech” rights used by corporations to mislead its investors and the public about the dangers of climate change. And as a chaser, the same corporate actor brings suit against an attorney general to keep her from doing her job. John Coates and Jeff Clements co-authors.
