    Thumbnail OCCUPY THE COURTS – 1.20.2012! by Stephen A. Justino What a difference two years makes! On January 21, 2010 the United States United State Supreme Court handed down its now-infamous decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission transforming the United States from a small “d,” small “r” democratic republic into a corporatocracy, and hardly [...]

    With all due respect to Rep. McGovern, Rep. Deutch, and Sen. Udall, the constitutional amendments that they have proposed recently are all fatally flawed. The McGovern Amendment is good on ending “Corporate Personhood,” but fails, in any way, to deal with the equally vexing problem of money being treated as a form of protected political speech. [...]

    Very sadly, I must agree with you. I was a loud and vocal opponent of the Unitary Executive theory when the Bush Administration first rolled it out, and I began to call for Bush’s impeachment after he suspended the Habeas Corpus rights of an American citizen, Jose Padilla. Bush’s crime against the Constitution – detaining [...]

    Reps. Donna Edwards and John Conyers have proposed a new amendment to the United States Constitution in the wake of the Citizens United decision, which they’re calling The Free Speech for People Amendment:

    H. J. RES. ___ Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States permitting Congress and the States to regulate the expenditure [...]

  • Krashkopf wrote a new diary post: On the HEROIC LOSS in Wisconsin

    2011-08-10 09:29:20View | Delete

    The heroic LOSS suffered by the Democrats in Wisconsin proves, more than ever, of the ABSOLUTE NEED to amend the U.S. Constitution so that it clearly, and unequivically says that Corporations do NOT have Constitutional rights. Thom has said that Wisconsin was a “dry run” for the Republicans in the post-Citizens’ United era. He was right. “We, the [...]

  • We, THE PEOPLE, need to amendment the U.S. Constitution so that it says clearly, and unequivocally, that Rights recognized under the U.S. Constitution belong to human beings, only, not to artificial entities such as Corporations. The five radical, ultra-conservative, activist, Justices on the current U.S. Supreme Court, have hijacked our “small d” democracy, and are [...]

  • David Cobb Speaks on – Creating Democracy & Challenging Corporate Rule On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission , the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions. Colorado Move to Amend; Colorado [...]

    McCain-Fingold WAS a law restricting corporate speech. CITIZENS UNITED said it was unconstitutional. The Corporations would move to “enjoin” – stop the implemenation of – any new law while they challenged it in court.

    One year ago – on January 21, 2010 – the United States of America ceased being a “small ‘d’/small ‘r’” democratic republic.  It was on that date that the United State Supreme Court’s handed down its decision in a case called Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission.   The Citizens United case involved a group called “Citizens United [...]

    To large extent, American history IS the history of the ebb and flow of political power between “We, the People” and “them, the Corporations.” “We, the People” overthrew the Monarchy, and the biggest multinational corporation of its day – the British East India Company, in 1776. “The Corporatists” rose to power, with the growth of [...]
