To The Daily Sun,
David Cobb, MoveToAmend.org, spoke Sunday in Canterbury. He's next in Henniker, Durham, Hanover. See his presentation online.
The Sunday Union Leader misleads on this movement: 46 New Hampshire Town Meetings now vote support of a constitutional amendment declaring corporations are not people; money is not free speech.
Remember Granny D's arriving in D.C. in February of 2000, after walking across the U.S., to both Senators McCain (R) and Feingold (D) greeting her. She walked for campaign finance reform. Big money gone. In 2002 both parties passed The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA), also called the McCain-Feingold Act. Campaign money was now regulated.
In 2010 our U. S. Supreme Court overturned BCRA, against the interests of the American people having clean elections. Back to the drawing board. Founding Fathers never included corporations as people. The 1886 U. S. Supreme Court introduced corporate personhood. McCain-Feingold tried to correct that. Didn't work.
"The Court has legalized corporate bribery of our elected officials" (Move to Amend).
On this fourth anniversary of Granny D's death at 100, remember that she worked on this to her end. Honor that.
Tell our District 2 state Senator Forrester to vote "yes," this Thursday, supporting this constitutional amendment effort. (279-2586 or 279-3407)
