CREDO helps you tell your Congressfolk to support a Constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood. Why? Short answer: because a corporation is a thing, not a person, and because money isn't speech but property. Somewhat longer answer: because when folks with more money spend more money electing Congressfolk, they get, in effect, more of a First Amendment right to redress grievances than the rest of us do, and the First Amendment doesn't guarantee more rights to people with more money. Consider, also, the spectre of jacked-up corporate spending in the 2012 Presidential election, and with it, the spectre of the truth getting repeatedly jacked up. We may well have at least one Presidential nominee (if Mr. Gingrich can keep up his snake-oil tour going) who thinks corporations should be spending more, not less, on Presidential campaigns. I'm such a churl I'd rather have corporations spending all that money they're sitting on to hire people to make stuff.
Meanwhile, we won a few victories over the last week. Congress postponed votes on SOPA and PIPA, the internet blacklist twins. To think that all it took was for us to complain in force! Trouble is, all it'll take for Congress to shove these bills down our throats again is for us to be too busy doing victory laps to notice, so Free Press helps you tell your Senators to kill SOPA and PIPA once and for all. Also, Mr. Obama mandated insurance, without co-pays, for contraceptives in federal health care exchanges, only exempting houses of worship, thus not exempting church-affiliated hospitals, colleges, or social service providers. Though I maintain that access to birth control should be a decision for individuals, not organizations, at least houses of worship will more likely be filled with folks who oppose birth control than the other organizations listed above. So Planned Parenthood and the National Women's Law Center help you thank Mr. Obama. Like I said before, thank him now and he might do the right thing again one day.
