Resolution to Free Democracy from Corporate Control

    1. Petition by

      Rebecca Christ

We, the citizens of Flagstaff, Arizona, urge the Flagstaff City Council to pass a resolution in which would support a 28th amendment to overturn the Citizens United V. Federal Election Commission Supreme Court decision of 2010, and resolve that corporations are private artificial entities and are not fully endowed and privileged by the Constitution of the United States.

      The Supreme Court decision to allow unlimited funding for political candidates by corporations was one of the very worst they have made since the beginning of the court.

      The Supreme Court decision granting "corporate personhood" to corporations was a wrong decision and is now threatening our democracy. We are becoming a plutocracy with one-percent making our laws, corrupting our legislature dominatincitizen's votes.

      Corporate interests have had far too much influence in our political system, and with this resolution, corporations are now able to control our elections. It is frightening and must be challenged.
