The 28th Amendment To The U.S. Constitution: The Omnibus Anti-Corruption Amendment

-

I hope this link works, so you all can read this news article on 4 notable truths.

-Call for a Constitutional Convention

A corrupt Congress will never reform itself. With the spirit of our country's creation the people of the United States shall move to take back representative democracy:

The Essential Amendment Program:

•One Person/ One Vote. Corporations are not People!

•Restore the Power of the Personal Vote

•Public Campaign Finance•No Corporate Financing of Elections.

•No Lobbying with Money, or the Potential of Future Rewards.

•No Persons or Group of Persons May Contribute More than100 to Any Politician or Any Single Campaign--100 is the Limit.

•Finance Electoral Campaigns with a Citizens Tax.

•Term Limits Limit Oligarchy!

•12 Years Max for the Congress, Senate and Supreme Court!

•Vote Only for Politicians Who Completely Support This Program in Their Platforms: A 'No Vote' for Any Politician Who Does Not Support the 28th Amendment.

•To Serve in Congress is an Honor, Not a Career. Serve our Citizens, Not the Rich and Corporations!

•The Congress is Not a Place to Get Elected in Order to Get Rich or Richer: For the text of our proposed amendment, please visit www.profoundemocracy.org.

jdhelm, if corporations are not people, why are they paying taxes?

Or don't you believe in no taxation without representation?

jd - OK, but how can you abolish corporate "personhood"? How, then, can a corporation own and hold property, particularly real property unless the corporation is considered to be a fictitious person. And how can you charge a company with a felony for malfeasance if they're not a person?

I think this topic will be part of the abyss.
