"Strike the Root, Transform the System"

    1. Petition by

      Wake Up Call USA

WAKE UP CALL USA is calling upon President Obama and our Congressional Representatives to support a Constitutional Amendment that limits the excessive influence of corporate money in our political process and establishes clean and fair elections that preserve the health of our democracy. Limiting the scope of “big money in politics” is one of the "root causes” of our systemic challenges in America. If we can engage a broad number of American citizens in taking action on this issue, we can free up the political process from the domination of "corporate interests" and move toward fair elections and good policy-making that will transform the whole system of American democracy.

      The Citizens United ruling and corporate personhood have given power to corporations that effectively corrupts our governing process and socializes the risk / failure of monied interests. The people suffer for it and it is unfair and unjust.

      Because we need political reform before we can have lasting national improvements!

      Alleviating a corporate controlled political process will allow people to respond appropriately to our current climate and social crises. We are not independent consumers. The days of our rugged individualism is coming to an end. It is time to celebrate our interdependence!
