For the first time in over three decades in America - corporate power is on the run. The final section of Unequal Protection is entitled, "Let us Begin" & end with a quote by John F. Kennedy who said, "All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the lifetime of this administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin." Thanks to the Occupy Wall Street movement - the fight against corporate personhood has kicked into high gear. And if the history of the past 200 years of steady progressive change in this country is any predictor of the future, "We the People" will win. Go to movetoamend.org.

1. kr...Thank you, Thom.
We will know for sure when we see the results of the 2012 election. In state after state corporate money is already hammering "good" Democrats like Sherrod Brown of Ohio. People of limited means can't hope to compete with this influx of unlimited dollars.

I love the new awareness we see by "the people". I just hope it's enough to overcome Citizens United and the full time misinformation machine.

2. It's only a misinformation machine when the people lack
basic reasoning skills and a rudimentary ability to reason.

Citizens United is only deadly because of the intelligence level of the American voter.

3. I would really like to hear the arguments of those opposing such a constitutional amendment
And defending the "corporations are people" idea.

I would really like to see the "logic" they use for keeping "Citizens United" intact...
