SORT BY Relevancy
Americans of all political persuasions are up in arms about the state of democracy in the US. Regardless of whether one is in favor of real democracy or a consitutional republic, anyone with open eyes can see that the US does not have representative government. In fact, a recent Princeton study showed that on over 1,000 issues, the government has taken actions contrary to the will of Americans as expressed in scientific polls.
The central problem that has led to this situation is corruption of US government by special interest money, especially that used to elect federal office holders who then represent those special interests instead of those of average Americans. What is to be done?
That is what we talk about on this episode of Taking Back America with former union lobbyist Paul Winger of Abolish Corporate Personhood Now. From his work to promote a constitutional amendment ending the doctrine of corporate constitional rights to legislative campaign finance reform and other anti-corruption efforts, Americans are taking a stand for representative government. Listen to learn how you can become a part of that effort.
This show was rebroadcast on May 17 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.
Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to inform the American public on true costs of corporate control of the US government.
Know the truth and the truth will set us free.
Despite a technical problem early in the show, you will want to listen to and share this episode of Take Back America for the People.
During candidate Obama's 2008 campaign he pledged reform of the corrupt lobbying practices that have made Congress a tool of corporations and the wealthy rather than a body representing We the People.
Whether from lack of will in the White House or the complacence of a Congress happy content to have their campaigns financed by deep-pocketed special interests, little has been done to curb the influence over Congress of the Jack Abramoffs of the world.
On July 11, Take Back America for the People hosted former lobbyist Paul Winger, Board president of Abolish Corporate Personhood Now.
We discussed the ways in which lobbyists influence legislation, the outsized power of corporate lobbyists compared to public interest nonprofits representing us and union lobbyists paid to represent working Americans.
As usual, we discussed solutions. Much of the show focused on what we can do to end the corruption of the US government by paid lobbyists for all special interest groups that want to have Congress put their interests over those of ordinary Americans.
Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to reveal to the American public the true costs of corporate control of the US government.
Voter registration continues to plummet in the US, with millions of Americans implicitly stating that their votes have become meaningless. Congress has been bought by CEOs and puts corporate interests over We the People on a regular basis, despite the fact that the nation is failing economically, socially and morally as a result.
If it fails in the US, is democracy possible? The surprising answer is that the more obvious it is that the US is not a democracy, the easier it may be to get people to wake up and make it one. They just need to know how it is possible.
A constitutional amendment that would ban corporate campaign expenditures, limit individual donations and abolish corporate personhood would be a huge step in establishing democracy in the US. It would require electing a Congress willing to challenge entrenched corporate interests, something few think possible. We will talk about how it can be done.
On Saturday, May 11 at 10 AM PST/ 1 PM EST our guest on SFPI Radio will be Paul Winger, a former union lobbyist who is now working for a constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood and the buying of elections.
