Amend the Constitution re: "Citizens United v.Federal Election Commission"

This petition had 177 supporters

With the assertion that 'money equals free speech', The Supreme Court takes 'one man / one vote' and substitutes 'deep pockets / bigger voice'.

Thus, corporations can use unlimited funds to twist the ear of cash-strapped politicians; write legislation favoring their bottom line over society at large, the environment, health and general well-being, while 99% of voters get a form letter from their representatives staff with vague, pandering rhetoric.

Endowed with the rights of 'personhood' but exempted from the responsibilities of citizenship.
