Our nation was founded on the principle that “We, the People” are to govern ourselves as a democratic republic.
However, the Supreme Court has given constitutional rights meant only for individuals to artificial entities such as corporations, unions, nonprofits and super PACs, and has ruled that money spent to influence the political process cannot be limited. As a result, our government today serves powerful special interests, foreign and domestic, instead of the American people.
Therefore, we call for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution which affirms that:
- Only human beings — not corporations, unions, nonprofit organizations, or other artificial entities — are endowed with constitutional rights, and
- Money is not speech, and therefore limiting political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.
