Overturn Citizens United

Оценок: 365 | Просмотров: 13172
Sen. Bernie Sanders told a Senate panel that a constitutional amendment is needed to undo the Supreme Court ruling that let corporations and wealthy individuals spend unlimited sums to sway American elections. Vermont and five other states have adopted resolutions asking Congress for a constitutional amendment to overturn the Citizens United decision. More than 200 local governments, including about 60 towns in Vermont, have passed similar measures. Read more: http://goo.gl/r9h7x

Who are the 23 billionaire families that have donated a minimum of 250K each? Tossing that info around without the names seems like this speech is less than 100% sincere.

Sanders is an exemplary statesman and human being, but why does he support corporate puppet, fraud Obama sometimes..

Republicans have not attacked rich, thieving Americans in thirty years.

And every modern state is Constitutional, at least in theory. That we are under the rule of law, and not royal fiat isn't uncommon today. And it's also not mutually exclusive with democracy, either.

A Republican form of government just means we're not a monarchy. It's a term that had a lot more use back when it was being used in the 18th Century. However, democracies and republics aren't mutually exclusive--they're orthogonal methods of categorization. Even dictatorships can be Republics--USSR anyone? China? So, we are a Democracy. We just also happen to be a Republic. A democratic republic.

I didn't hear any reference to George Soros who has spent millions spreading his socialist views. Nor any comments about contributing to Obama's "Organizing for Action" which gives access to the WH for $500,000.00. I guess the working class has $500,000.00 to get face time with O sitting in the bank.

(cont) Though I guess technically we're federal republic Federal republic — a federal union of states or provinces with a republican form of government. And technically, there's no such thing as a constitutional republic. There is a constitutional monarchy though. Democratic Republic, Parliamentary Republic, Federal Republic, Confederal Republic, Directorial Republic, Islamic Republic, and Socialist Republic are the types I can find being official types of republics.

Democratic republic — a republican form of government where the country is considered a "public matter" (Latin: res publica), not a private concern or property of rulers, and where offices of states are subsequently, directly or indirectly, elected or appointed - rather than inherited - where all eligible citizens have an equal say in the local and national decisions that affect their lives. Just saying, kinda fits us.

"don't dare (...) becomming wealthy"? Anyway a non-democratic republic is called a DICTATORSHIP

No, we're a DEMOCRATIC Republic. There's a difference than a pure Republic.

You're missing the point... The few who own the many are placing their money into politics as if its an investment. 23 billionaires-- the most ever in election history. And this is the first time in history the competitor will be having more political support and money than the covenant (president). If you place in the facts together, you can see that the rich are actually cheating. Then you have laws limiting people's votes. And see the statistics on which party is actually affected by this

I've never seen a politician fight so hard for the middle and lower class in this country. Bernie Sanders is truely an awesome leader.
Zach Chamberlain (5 лет назад)
The Senator doesn't even realize we're not a democracy, never were, and never should be... We're a Republic. The amazing thing about his statements about how much millionaires own in proportion to the bottom percentiles is that EVERY one of those people could start a business and be in the very same boat. It's America. We have a system that allows for anybody who truly wants to, can succeed. I agree Citizens United should be overturned, but don't dare deomnize dreams and becomming wealthy...

As I said I didn't know what you meant, if you meant Bernie Sanders is greater than Ron Paul then I agree with you whole heatedly. I've been coming across too many Ron Paulies who think Ron Paul is the savior of the Nation, they have been hard at work trying to coopt the Occupy movement.

Question, do you know know what this symbol ">" in math means?
robtomorrow (5 лет назад)
I'm not sure what you mean but I would edit your post as Bernie Sanders vs Ron Paul, they are on opposite ends of the spectrum, a Socialist vs a Libertarian. Did you know that the Libertarian think tank the CATO Institute receives the lions share its funding from the Koch Family Foundation?

I stand corrected. He didn't vote for TARP, but he did vote for Obamacare. I mean this when I say it... Thank you for correcting me.

I don't know why bernie always brings up the walton family, they are poor compared to some of these banking families and everyone knows it.
MasterBlood187 (1 год назад)
doire7 Probably because their low wage labor strategy is subsidized by taxpayers, who pay into government programs to keep them afloat, because Walmart doesn't pay a living wage.
John Smith (5 лет назад)
There was no other option on Obama care. It was that or nothing. How do you known he voted for TARP? Do you have the roll call number from the senate website to prove it?

Love and appreciation to Senator Sanders.You are the vanguard of integrity in American politics.
Jerry Warren (5 лет назад)
Bernie tells it like it is. He is the one person in the Senate who always makes sense. He is supported by the people not the wealthy or the corporations which they own.
John Doe (5 лет назад)
I've seen this guy so many times and he always seems to be on point. Why would he vote for Obamacare and the TARP bill? I'm not trying to start something here, but this guy is obviously intelligent. Why would he vote to bail out Wall Street and stand behind Obama and his health care mandate? I want to promote this guy, but those two votes alone make me pause to think about it.
daveyrich89 (5 лет назад)
Senator Sanders, you are the greatest senator in recent times, and quite likely in all American history. I wish the senate had 99 more Bernie Sanders. I wish I was represented by you in the senate rather than David Vitter and Mary Landrieu. Good luck in November, all though I'm sure you will be win without much trouble!

One of the other great leaders of the Civil Rights Movement was Bayard Rustin (along with Asa Randolph), but because he was homosexual, a pacifist and a Marxist he was considered too controversial to be at the forefront of the movement. Worth watching "Brother Outsider". Howard Zinn pointed out that innumerable people fought for equality in their own way, against heavy institutional oppression, too. Props to everyone that was on the right side of history then. Hope the US gets public financing.
