Citizens United


Have been against this ruling since it was decided, I am happy to read news reports of many communities that passed proposals calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn this ruling.
I am going to contact my elected officials and asking them to support such a proposal.
Dear (elected official) (DATE)
Our country’s government is being purchased by just a few wealthy citizens. This action is a direct result of the Citizens United ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.
I am asking you to introduce and support a proposal for a constitutional amendment to overturn this ruling. A constitutional amendment requires time and involvement by many, but we can do it, with your continued support.
Thank you,
(Your name here)
Please copy, paste, print and mail this letter to elected officials at all levels of government. Local, State and National.
Or compose your own, which ever you are more comfortable with. And a hard copy (snail mail) letter is much more effective than e-mail or phone calls so take some time and put in the extra effort to do it via U.S. mail.
Numerous groups have formed in protest the ruling here is a link to one of the latest such groups.
