Hartmann: Long Live the Oligarchy! & How to Fight Back With Move to Amend

August 11, 2011

David Cobb, MoveToAmend.org joins Thom Hartmann.

America is now - demonstrably, as proven by Wisconsin - just a few years away from the possibility of a totally corrupted, totally billionaire - and corporate-controlled political system Political scientists call it oligarchy.

The Citizens United election experiment is over - and the oligarchs won. Long live the oligarchy. But before settling into despair - and accepting that American democracy is lost - we need to first ask the question..."is there anything that 'we the people' can do to fight back?"

Turns out...there's a lot. All around the country - and likely in your home state - there are movements underway to amend the constitution to strip corporations of their personhood and declare that money is not a form of free speech - essentially overturning the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision. So how do we find out more about this - and how do we get involved? Tune in.
