Laura Spicer: Thanks to Madison for leadership on constitutional amendment on corporate personhood

Dear Editor: The people of Boulder, Colo., want to thank the people of Madison. You inspired the nation and Boulder to follow your leadership and again make history. In November, Boulder seeks to pass ballot measure, 2H, a referendum utilizing “Madison” language to call for a constitutional amendment to reverse Supreme Court decisions that gave corporations constitutional rights (corporate personhood), and equated money with speech. Like Madison, we are standing up for democracy and want to end billionaire and corporate dominance in our society.

We need the support of cities like Madison, which believe that demanding a constitutional amendment that puts people in charge of corporations will ultimately create a government that is truly “by the people and for the people.” This is essential to achieving our common goals of economic security, justice for all, and a safe and healthy environment. Most importantly, it will convey to our children and grandchildren that their voices count.

Thank you, Madison. Your leadership and success have inspired us. We are grateful. Please visit www.yeson2h.org and support us in getting one step closer to national change. Together, we can do this!

About James Crist

How do we stop America's decline? The country is in trouble and we can all feel it. Where did we go wrong? How do we fix it? We now have an auction-based government, for sale to the highest bidder. Politicians have become nothing more than corporate whores and pawns for the rich. If we want our representatives to represent us, let them get their campaign money from us, their constituents. We have to amend the constitution to get the big money out of politics.
