1. Abolish Corporate Personhood - Overrule the Court

    A few people can make a difference. About a year ago, two people threw a house party to talk about abolishing corporate personhood and my living room was filled to capacity. We were outraged and we were passionate, and we decided then and there that we'd bring this issue to the attention of our community. Today, with the help of many other people in Pueblo, we are the only county that has successfully brought this issue up for a vote of the people in Colorado's 2012 ballot. We're local grassroots, but we're proud to be associated with a national group that's working to get at the root of all the corrupt money in politics: the awarding of "personhood" status to legal constructs. It's this misguided judgement that gave legal constructs standing in the Constitution to receive our rights - rights that are now being used against the very people which the Constitution was written to protect. Watch the video to see just how corrupt - and insidious - it is. The Supreme Court has been wrong before, so we amended our Constitution to abolish slavery - because a person isn't property. The Court is wrong again - property is not a person. People, one community at a time, are rising up all over the nation against this corruption, and standing up for the human rights issue of our time: Abolishing corporate personhood and reclaiming our rights. WE, THE PEOPLE, have this sovereign right, and we MOVE TO AMEND our Constitution to establish that a corporation is not a person, and money is not free speech. You can make a difference - make your voice heard: VOTE. After you see what's been happening, if you end up outraged and want to do somethign about it, go to MovetoAmend.org. Then invite some people to your lving room.

              According to the U.S. Supreme Court, corporations are people. The Overpass Light Brigade visited a busy overpass pedestrian bridge over the Beltline in Madison, Wisconsin to confidently state that CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE! Judging by the number of supportive democrabeeps it is safe to say that most Wisconsinites feel the same.

                  Senator Bernie Sanders (Independent of Vermont) has introduced a Constitutional amendment to, in effect, overturn the Citizens United Supreme Court decision granting corporations personhood. As everyone knows, except five Justices who were the majority vote, corporations are NOT persons. But if it stands the decision will destroy our democracy.
