Citizens United must go.

Tomorrow, 9/8/14, the U.S. Senate will vote on a landmark constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and ensure that OUR DEMOCRACY IS NOT FOR SALE. Momentum is building—as of right now, 50 out of 100 senators are on board. Together, we can tip those scales.

Citizens United must go. >>> While this is true, it cannot be "repealed". It must be reversed by the Supreme Court itself (highly unlikely), or it must be overturned by constitutional amendment (only slightly less unlikely). That decision is the single most disastrous decision since Plessy v. Ferguson.
Recently, Congress passed a law that removed caps on spending for political parties. This literally has resulted in "money talk". Now, the more money people have, the more influence they can have on government decisions. The voices of everyone else are being drowned by the wealthy.
California on Thursday became the largest state in the nation to urge Congress to draft a constitutional amendment to overturn the US Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision.The state Senate voted 24 to 11 to approve Assembly Joint Resolution 22, authored by Assembly members Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) and Michael Allen (D-Sonoma), which call for a restoration of campaign finance laws that would eliminate unlimited corporate and private money in US election campaigns. The 2010
THE CORRUPT KOCH REPUBLICANS.. Sep 11, 2014 By a straight party-line vote of 54-42, the U.S. Senate defeated a constitutional amendment today that would have overruled Citizens United decision. All five Senate Democrats whose support was unknown ended up voting “yes,” whereas even Republican Susan Collins voted “no.” This was one of the last votes the Senate will take before they adjourn for the election season—where the Koch Bros will pour millions of dollars into attack ads to fool voters.
Citizens United- just not fair, and a major threat to our democracy
Sep 11, 2014 By a straight party-line vote of 54-42, the U.S. Senate defeated a constitutional amendment today that would have overruled the awful Citizens United decision.All five Senate Democrats whose support was unknown ended up voting “yes,” whereas even Republican Susan Collins voted “no.” This was one of the last votes the Senate will take before they adjourn for the election season—where the Koch brothers will pour millions of dollars into attack ads to fool voters. In other words, the fact that every Democrat sided with the people—and every Republican sided with the rich and powerful—will make this a potent campaign issue in November.

There has to be a revolution...but it has to be a revolution of consciousness #wise #words #wisdom #inspiration #motivation #quote #fun #happiness
OMGosh!!! Yes, Yes, Yes, this would indeed be Revolutionary! I'd Love a Revolution of Conscious Awareness, & Unity. THEN, we'll finally see change because WE will be the change...Please Awaken everyone! We are more powerful than we know!
its not about "there has to be" because it is all about "we are having a revolution...a revolution of consciousness!"
In order for there to be a change we first have to make a change from within. The revolution starts in our minds, to change our way of thinking.
You say you want a revolution well ya know... We all want to change the world. Start by opening your mind.
All past revolutions have failed to change anything because they have not changed human consciousness in any significant way. All we have done is replaced one bunch of tyrants with another, because we have failed to see that the external "reality" is just a reflection of our internal state of minds. Nothing will change until we step outside the mind program. http://one-heaven.org/sacred_texts/book/Lebor_Clann_Glas/c/21.html
The only revolution I've been a part of is that of my own consciousness- writing narrative
Only one thing to say here: YES
one of the ultimate truths!!!
Why is half of America supporting this robbery of our democracy?
Politics, Quotes, Truth, Power, Government, People, Eugene Debs
"The class which has the power to rob upon a large scale has also the power to control the government and legalize their robbery." - Eugene Debs
Truth be told... To rob other billionaires legally, you would need to corrupt a powerful government like the US. After robbing the middle class they are coming for the real treasure, that of the other 1%.
This shows the power of government within this form of government. The government is hinted in being full of high class rankings. These high class folks can change things to the way they want things to be by the government.
Eugene Debs said this about the Republican ruling class in 1918, and it's as true today as it was then, or truer. #power #politics #rulingclass
Paola R This is a very powerful quote about stealing, something that this yama mainly goes against. This image shows us that even though the government may excuse themselves for stealing, it is still incorrect, which is what Asteya teaches us. No matter who we are, what we do, or why we do it.. stealing is not good for you or anyone else.
"Government isnt the problem. People in government who think government is the problem are the problem." Obama/Biden 2012
"The class which has the power to rob upon a large scale has also the power to control the government & legalize their robbery." -Eugene Debs, said this 94 years ago. | #paradigmshift #timetostoppretending #corruption #wakeup
Eugene Debs said this about the Republican ruling class in 1918, and it's as true today as it was then, or truer. "They know little of history; they are strangers to science; they are ignorant of sociology and blind to art but they know how to exploit, how to gouge, how to rob, and do it with legal sanction. They always proceed legally for the reason that the class which has the power to rob upon a large scale has also the power to control the government and legalize their robbery."

Sarah Palin - hypocrite?
Sarah Palin, Definition, Republican, Milf, People, Liberal Politics
She actually said it while hating on Obama for being a supposed socialist. Dumb as a bag of hammers.
Problem identified: you assume the quitter governor knows what socialism is. People! She stood in front of a turkey decapitation machine during Thanksgiving!! I don't think she knows what irony means either.
Oh, Sarah . . . you "accuse" Obama of being socialist like it's a really bad thing. Yet, in your own state . . . Socialism: You Betcha!!!
And this socialism is called the Alaskan Permanent Dividend Fund and I participated in this when I lived there in the 80s. Each Alaskan resident (adults and children) receives a check every year from the shared profits of Alaskan resources, namely oil. Although this was going on before Palin became governor, she also participated in and pocketed her checks and she didn't repeal that law when she could. Palin is closet Socialist.
Sarah Palin unwittingly explains SOCIALISM! Gawd what an idiot.
"It's not socialism when WE do it!" --the Republican Party
Palin....that's kinda the definition of Socialism

Eradicate Hunger, Politics, Inspiration, Quotes, Stuff, Truth, Things, War
This is an example of inequality and relates sociologically to politics. It is unbelievable that world hunger could be stopped if the military did not spend so much on their industry. It is not humane to have starving people all over the world and the government to choose war and conflict, over ending hunger. Why do wars exist? Why can people not be satisfied with what they have?
Check out the amount spent by Americans alone on pet food. Love the puppies and kitties, but it does put things into perspective regarding how easily it could be done.
If there was no more war, we would be able to completely end world hunger in a matter of eight days.
Wars are not fought on the behalf of the hungry, they are fought on behalf of those who shall decide who will remain hungry.
This is why we poodles created the Poodle Peace Parade...we believe in peace, not war. We hope our humans reconsider their priorities.
No political agenda here, but this hurts my soul through and through because I know it exists purely because it's ok with us.
An old quote we still haven't listened to.

Republican Obstructionist policy - seriously F these guys and how they're destroying the commons. Gov't can work, but only as long as it is filled with people who think that way versus lining their own pockets.
This is what they do on the rare occasion they're wking.. Obstruction! Nothing to move the country FORWARD! VOTE THEM OUT! #UitedBlue
But hey. They say "Jesus" and "Freedum" and "GUNZ" a lot, and they hate immigrants and women and the Gay and poor people that want to mooch free stuff, so it's all ok. CERTAINLY better than a "Black man in the White House", right Republicans?
GOP Obstruction at any Cost: legislation blocked since President Obama took office - look at their record people - are these the idiots you want in office?????
Read that list over. Read it again. These bills would have made this country a better place to live for millions of people of walks of life, but the republicans refused to allow these to Americans and notice the Campaign Disclosure bill, the one that would make all that shadow money reveal itself. That's how honest and transparent the republicans are, yet they complain about Obama's transparency. Hypocrites. Vote them out.
I'm not sure that I call the "no" votes on these bills as "Obstruction" by the Republicans. The Republicans are clear that they don't want these bills passed. There are more Democratic voters in the United States than Republicans voters. The question I'm asking is will the Democrats turn out en masse this November and finally vote their interest? Democratic-minded folks need to make sure that they are REGISTER, mark NOVEMBER 4, 2014 on their calendars and then VOTE!
SEDITION committed against our Nation by 14 GOP Congress & Senate leaders + Newt Gingrich on 1/20/09 (Inauguration Day). Stated intent of their agreement was to deny the President any legislative success and thereby deny him a 2nd term. This was done without regard to how damaging it would be to the American People or the country's crisis economy. I believe all members of that meeting should be indicted by the DOJ for Sedition against the United States of America. Wake up!!! The Republican Party hurts the avg. Citizen!!

There is no doubt unions brought about many good things, and created more equality in jobs. Americans definitely have the labor movement to thank for creating a more pleasant and fair work place.
We give thanks to the labor movement. Truth be told... While not perfect by any means, it gives a loud and collected voice to the People.

Absolutely true! Two things created that middle class we all get so misty and nostalgic about...the G.I. bill (pushed by liberals while conservatives screamed socialism) and unions (endorsed by liberals while conservatives screamed socialism)
We do need to return America back to the glory of "We The People" and end the republican corporate take over of American politics.
If you're miss the way it used to be, then tax a millionaire, support a union and buy American. Please do!
