“2012 is the first presidential election year since Citizens United. And that means ExxonMobil, the Koch brothers, and all of Wall Street can spend unlimited amounts of money to influence our democracy. Because the limitless spending has been protected by Supreme Court, the only way we can stop it is by amending the Constitution to reverse Citizens United and get big money out of politics for good.
That means we need to build overwhelming support from lawmakers at both the state and federal level. Right now we have an opportunity to convince politicians to get on board if they want to earn our votes before the election.
Sign the petition to your state legislators, governor, and members of congress asking them to declare their support for a constitutional amendment to get big money out of politics permanently.” (via MoveOn)
