Too often we hear the electorate bemoaning, "What can I do?"   This is one instance where organized people can take a stand against organized money.   Free Speech For People offers a list at their web site of simple things that everyday citizens can do to start the hard work to amend the Constitution and stop the damages being done by the Citizens United ruling.   Perhaps, for many, just learning and knowing about Citizens United may be the first step. Becoming educated, informed, and engaged is a must.

Many of us have what we like to think of as our "favorite causes" to which we throw our support -- be it environmental issues, single payer health care, voting rights, etc. However, the chance of progressing on any issue today with corporate power maintaining such a gridlock over every level of elected official in this country remains slim. To borrow from a phrase from Paul Newman in the movie The Verdict: This (stopping unlimited corporate expenditures and the corporate takeover of our government) is the only issue. There are no other issues.
