This is a participatory "article".  I invite readers to respond w/ one or two line slogans, with or without an associated website, that make a "nutshell" point about one or more changes that have to be made to restore democracy in the U.S.  Clever, inspirational, or emotionally moving wording is nice but definitely not required.  The emphasis is on what might open the eyes of the politically naive.

Think of the slogans as a figurative political graffiti.

I'm sure others will be much better than mine, but I'll start w/ a few clunky examples:

"Who asks the shareholders which candidate to support?  Corporate speech is commercial speech, not free speech.  Move to Amend the Constitution."

"Who wins an election is not a secret in a democracy.  You can't see a computer count votes.  Demand hand counting."

"This street is Constitution Restoration Way."

"Demanding self-government and civil liberties is not terrorism."

"Organized unions are the antidote to servitude."

"Public campaign financing for public servants.  They dance w/ them who brung 'em."

Quotations, if they are to the point, are also welcome.

Now it's your turn:

 

Like this country's founders, I believe that the widest political empowerment under the rule of law is the surest way of having its resources work for the long term best interests of us all. The longer I live, the more I see that supports that (more...)
