Fight Corporate Domination if the U.S.A., Incorporated

"We deserve a country where our elected officials are not bought and paid for by Big Business," says CREDO.

Last week's Supreme Court decision in the case Citizens United vs. FEC by five agenda driven right wing judges overturned over a century of precedent and opened the floodgates for unlimited amounts of corporate money to flow into our political system, and gutted all restraints on corporate meddling in our elections.  The court's decision may even allow foreign corporations and large multinationals to manipulate our elections.

From Wikipedia:
Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S.  (2010) is a landmark 5-to-4 decision by the United States Supreme Court that corporate funding of independent political broadcasts in candidate elections cannot be limited, because doing so would be in noncompliance with the First Amendment. The decision resulted from the non-profit corporation Citizens United's case before the court regarding whether the group's film critical of a political candidate could be defined as a campaign advertisement under the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, commonly known as the McCain-Feingold Act.[2]
The decision reached the Supreme Court on appeal from a 2008 decision by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, which sided with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), holding that under the McCain-Feingold Act the film Hillary: The Movie could not be shown on television right before the 2008 Democratic primaries.

Attempts are being made to break the stranglehold that corporate influence has over our politics. There are TWO critical action pages related to this, which ask participants to submit and also pass on to everyone you know, which will send your message by fax to all your own members of Congress, and President Obama too. You do not need your own fax machine to participate, the action pages do all this for you automatically in real time.
