City Council and MoveToAmendPosted: February 5, 2012
The American citizens have lost their homes through corrupt lending practices by big banks and lending institutions such as Wells Fargo and Country Wide. They have had their jobs move overseas by big corporations such as IBM and General Electric. They have been killed and have had their land polluted and destroyed by big oil and mining corporations such as British Petroleum and Massey Energy. In 2009 the U.S. taxpayers bailed out the “Too Big to Fail” banks to the sum of $800 billion. The Federal Reserve also lent trillions of dollars to cover their sour investments. All of this thievery and corruption is happening because the U.S. Supreme Court has given corporations year by year more rights under the U.S. Constitution. It began in earnest in 1886 when corporations were granted person-hood status equating them legally to U.S. Citizens turning our Bill of Rights upside down.
The final blow to the corruption of the Constitution occurred when the Supreme Court gave corporations the right to spend unlimited amounts of money in elections.
MoveToAmend is a coalition supported by hundreds of organizations and tens of thousands of individuals dedicated to ending the illegitimate legal doctrines that prevent the American people from governing ourselves. It has a Facebook page that educates viewers of the importance and methods of ending the power of corporations. The constitution can be amended to take away the rights of corporations given by the big business justices of the Supreme Court MoveToAmend
will direct the best way to accomplish the termination of corporate personhood. Cities in Vermont, Colorado, and California are demanding their councils to pass resolutions for a Twenty-eighth Amendment to the Constitution to strip corporations of their constitutional rights granted by justices of the Supreme Court. Their rights, duties, responsibilities must be granted only in their charter by “We the People”. We in Broome County must start the process in our city, town, and village councils.
Barack Obama said “If you want me to make changes you have to force me.” Like the “Arab Spring” and the voter uprising in Wisconsin against the Governor and the legislature that produced results because aroused citizens banded together demanding change from their politicians, we in Broome County need aroused citizens, who understand how corporations have become so powerful through the grant of constitutional rights. This can be learned on MoveToAmend’s Facebook site. There are various ways to present the MoveToAmend’s resolution to convince the councils to pass it. To do this there needs to be 50 to 100 aroused men and women per council who are committed to and understand the issue and will attend council meetings until the resolution passes. To prepare for the council meetings a group of 7 to 10 persons needs to meet individually with each council member until the member is committed to support the resolution. The voters’ commitments in Broome County should be gotten from the Binghamton City Council, the Vestal Board, the Johnson City Board of Trustees, and as many of the town and village councils as possible. MoveToAmend is organizing meetings to pressure our politicians throughout New York and all states in the country.
The passage of the resolution by the councils in Broome County and all counties in New York is the basis to force the state legislature to pass the MoveToAmend’s Constitutional Amendment to end the power of the corporations of their present constitutional rights. They will then be creations of “We the People” granted by their corporate charters in which “We the People” have defined their duties and responsibilities which if not adhered to can be rescinded.
This will help put us citizens back in charge of our country. UP WITH THE PEOPLE!
