America currently has a system that is corrupted by the influence of big money in politics and is marred by the disenfranchisement of millions of Americans. We need a government that includes everyone in the political process and that does not allow the wealthy to buy political influence. We need representative democracy. We need an equal voice.
This year, millions of Americans will be following the elections and wanting to know, “Where do the candidates stand on this issue? Where do my representatives stand?” I pledge that I will use your vote for me to fight for fundamental reforms that give all American citizens an equal voice in government, including:1. Voting Rights Protections2. Public, Citizen-Funded Elections3. A Constitutional Amendment Overturning Citizens United
So I’ve Signed this Declaration:
“Our government should be free from the corrupting influence of big money in politics and solely dependent upon the People. I declare my support for pro-democracy, anti-corruption reforms, including voting rights protections, citizen-funded elections, and a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.”
