    James Madison and the founding generation of Americans viewed the concentration of wealth and power as the greatest threat to constitutional self-government. Today, their fear is our reality. As a result, we see a broken government responsive only to the largest corporations and privileged few. We see ordinary Americans sidelined as spectators to a big money political game. We see formidable national and global challenges exacerbated by politicians operating in a systemically corrupted system.

    This proposed amendment is definitely needed to end the oligarchy that is taking over this country.

    Dartmouth College v. Woodward is one of the oldest laws on the books

    Careful. Unions are also benefiting just as corporations are. None of the liberals ever mention that. Is it because they just aren't aware, or they're trying to conceal that


    How are unions benefiting from concentration of wealth and power and corporations being persons? Genuinely interested.
