I just received this e-mail. I acted on it. So should you.
Once upon a time, corporations existed to produce goods and provide services to customers.
But these days it seems like corporations have a new priority – namely, spending millions to elect politicians who will do their bidding.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can take back our democracy.
Please sign our petition urging corporations to refrain
from political spending in 2012!
The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision opened the floodgates to special interest money in our elections. That money is now threatening to drown out the voices of ordinary Americans like you and me.
And while there are lots of options for reversing Citizens United, we can’t wait two, five or ten years for politicians to take action to fix our broken system.
We need to do something NOW. Let’s remind corporations to stick to business and refrain from political spending in the 2012 elections.
Sign our petition today, and we’ll deliver it to the top 500 corporations – starting with Bank of America, our #1 target as chosen by you, our Common Cause members and activists.
Thanks for all you do,
and the rest of the team at Common Cause
P.S. Please forward this message to four friends who also want to see corporations doing more to strengthen community, not investing in politics that divide it.
