Stop the foreign takeover of America



BackgroundIn January 2010, five Republicans on the Supreme Court gave foreign corporations a Constitutional right to buy Congress and our next President.
If foreign corporations want to buy our elections publicly, they can simply create U.S. subsidiaries. If they want to buy our elections secretly, they can launder their money through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which aggressively raises foreign money, or through Karl Rove's secretive American Crossroads GPS, both of which are spending millions in this year's elections.
That means foreign leaders like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, Hu Jintao of China, and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia can use their enormous wealth to steal millions of American jobs, keep us dependent on foreign oil and even make us fight their wars.
The Supreme Court put America's national security in danger. They were absolutely wrong and their ruling (Citizens United v. FEC) must be overturned.
Urge your Representatives to co-sponsor the DISCLOSE Act to require full disclosure of all corporate campaign spending and ban foreign corporate spending.
Urge your Representatives to co-sponsor the Shareholder Protection Act to require public shareholder approval of all corporate campaign spending.
And urge your Representatives to co-sponsor a Constitutional Amendment to keep all corporate money out of American politics.

As my Representative, I urge you to co-sponsor the DISCLOSE Act to require full disclosure of all corporate campaign spending and ban foreign corporate spending.
I also urge you to co-sponsor the Shareholder Protection Act to require public shareholder approval of all corporate campaign spending.
And I urge you to co-sponsor a Constitutional Amendment to keep all corporate money out of American politics.

Contact your representative directly!

"and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia can use their enormous wealth to steal millions of American jobs, keep us dependent on foreign oil, and even make us fight their wars."

And that would be different from now how?

Good point Samuel. I guess this just made it easier for him. He doesn't even have to try now.
