The 28th Amendment - Corporations are not people. They have none of the Constitutional rights of human beings. Corporations are not allowed to give money to any politician, directly or indirectly. No politician can raise over $100 from any person or entity. all elections must be publicly financed.
Republicans remind me of the Solomon Judgement - Republicans remind me of the woman who was standing before King Solomon in a custody suit with another woman [I Kings 3:16-28]. She would have rather seen the baby cut in two than see the real mother have it. In the same way Republicans would rather see the economy tank, thousands of people out of work and our communities destroyed as long as they can get the White House back. Care pointed out to Solomon who the real mother was and care and concern for our fellow citizens and the environment tell us who the real citizens are.
In fact, worse than that, then Republican party turned a healthy economy and government into a sick economy and dysfunctional government. Why would going back to them suddenly work now?
Whatever your opinion on President Obama, here is something no conservative has been able to explain to me. Why would the same policies that turned a booming economy and government surplus at the end of Clinton's 2nd term into the worst recession in 80 years and extreme government overspending and debt at the end of Bush's 2nd term suddenly work now? Deregulation, giving more money to the rich and cutting social programs are not new ideas, they were the policy from 2000-2008. It failed. They are what got us into this mess. These aren't fresh faced candidates with sparkling new ideas, it is simply the same message from different faces. We tried these things from 2000-2008 and they simply did not work.
