Overturning the evil consequences of "Citizens United" is of no lesser importance. It is the blatant usurpation of this country by the corporate oligarchs who have transformed our representative democracy into a plutocracy that serves them.

Fortunately we have a legal process in this country that can overrule the serious misjudgment of this Supreme Court and that's amending the Constitution.

Some brave representatives in the House and Senate have put forth Bills calling for a Constitutional Amendment to overturn "Citizens".

Some cities and state legislatures have put forth their own resolutions calling for a constitutional amendment.

Rallies are planned across the country calling for a constitutional amendment.

As Frederick Douglas once said, "Power cedes nothing without a demand".

There is no more important demand the people can make than demanding a constitutional amendment to overturn "Citizens United".
