Obama Hushes Healthcare Advocates?

Ban special-interest money

Special interest financing of our elections and USA imperialism are partners. We voters need to say no more special-interest funding of elections! As voters we also need to stop allowing Congress to investigate and prosecute itself! When they violate laws, it goes to the feds!

Not voting sends the wrong message and changes nothing. Lets’s demand a new system and vote in Fair Vote America. Demand a change on the next ballot. We need public financing of campaigns. Citizens cannot afford special-interest money campaigns, for it is the citizens that get left out. Let citizens vote on this issue.

Pres Obama and Congressmen and -women, don't ban earmarks, ban special-interest financing of elections! One more time: ban special-interest financing! Now we're on to something!
