I have worked with them in the past and continue to work with them in  establishing a Move to Amend affiliate in Jackson, Mississippi. I'm  writing this to you in hopes that some of you will be interested enough  in this issue that you would consider signing the petition for the We the People Amendment and to assist in getting a local MTA affiliate started in Central Mississippi.

 You  can read more information yourself at the links I'll provide at the end  of this message but I will now give you a summary of what I'm talking  about.

 Move to Amend is an organization that was started as a direct response to the US Supreme Court's decision on Citizens United,  a verdict that allowed corporate money to flood our election system and  influence our government at every level. Move to Amend suggests that  the only way to permanently rid our system of government, our very  democracy, of unelected influence by corporations and ultra-wealthy  individuals is by passing a constitutional amendment. The We the People  Amendment is the constitutional amendment that MTA is promoting and one  that I am asking you to give your approval.

 A Princeton University study,  for one, has shown very clearly that since at least 1970, the  legislation and public policy that has been enacted by the governments  of the United States of America deviate sharply from the will and  sentiments of the people who live in the United States of America, its  citizens, We the People. And it is We the People who have the  rights guaranteed and enumerated in part by our Constitution and its  amendments; it is not the corporations who have these rights. The We the  People Amendment seeks to affirm this fact in our Constitution in order  to put any doubt to rest and to allow our democracy to continue to  develop, mature, and reach the state that our founding fathers hoped and  intended it to.

 If you are interested in signing the petition and getting this going please contact me at ali@jacksonprogressives.us  and tell me so.Β  Please also include your full name, e-mail address,  postal address, and a good phone number and I will add you to our  growing list.

 Also,  I'm delighted to announce that we have partnered with Mississippi Rising Coalition in establishing MTA affiliates in both central  Mississippi and the coast, and hopefully elsewhere!Β 

 Thank you for reading!!! Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to discuss this with me directly.

 Peace, love, and progress,
 Ali

Good ol’ American justice, continually subverted by powerful interests, even in that liberal bastion New York City.

Cheating = The American Way ?Β  We can choose a different path.

Strategies that let super PACs delay revealing their donors until after the election are gaining popularity among both Democrats and Republicans.
