Change Congress NOW
If you agree that there needs to be a LAW that prevents congress members from taking money from anyone other than the people who voted to put them into office,then sign this petition. Congress members take money from corporations, lobbyists and special interest groups. They then make laws and policies that are in the best interest of those companies, lobbyists and groups, not in the best interest of the American citizen who voted to give them their job. Lets stop this NOW!!!
Make it a LAW that congress can't take money from any company, lobbyist or special interest group. The only money donations allowed by law should be those made by the American people. This will make congress work in the American peoples best interest. Its the American citizen that pays congress salaries, lets make them work for us. NO MORE MONEY FROM CORPORATIONS, LOBBYISTS, or SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. Our congress is being bought. Lets stop this NOW!!!

      As long as politicians continue to accept money from Lobbyists and Corporations (now unlimited amounts thanks to Citizens United); they are not 100% accountable to the citizens that they are supposed to represent. This has shown to be nothing but a problem and has led to a corrupt and runaway political and financial system with no accountability for wrong-doing. It has essentially created a gang of thieves that are above the law. Either this petition will reform you or the Occupy movement will. Either way, the Empire, as it is now, will crumble, and our government, as designed and intended by our founding fathers, will be put back in its rightful place. "Leave no authority standing not responsible to the people" Thomas Jefferson wrote those words and I stand by them.

      Congress has no interest in the average American, because the average American can't give them millions of dollars!!

      I want a country my forefathers fought for. I want to live in freedom and not under the thumb of the wealthiest. We need to stop their control before they have all the control.

      It is a direct slap in the face of the american citizen that congress basically takes money to get influenced to do things that are not in the american citizens best interest. They are lying to us and making decisions with their wallets. We can make this change happen.
