overriding fat tony scalia
Town Hall meetings all across Vermont will soon issue a plea to Congress to adopt a constitutional amendment which would end once and for all the ridiculous and autocratic twin fictions that corporations are people and that money is speech.
John Nichols has the story at The Nation.
Two state legislatures, in Hawaii and New Mexico, have already endorsed such a proposal.
When Citizens United is demolished and our Constitution is brought up to date, to respond to the realty of current conditions, the process will begin at the bottom of society, at the grassroots. This will be the opposite of the status quo, which was dictated at the top and pushed downward onto the people in the most autocratic way imaginable.
