Get money out of politics


So Martha Stewart goes to jail for insider trading, and Congress is exempt from the same laws that sent Stewart to the slammer? With few exceptions, the members of this Congress could be the model for charging under the RICO (racketeering) statutes.

When will we have had enough? If anyone wants to join me, I’ve signed an online petition to present to Congress next year to pass a constitutional amendment to get the money out of politics. More than 200,000 people have already signed this petition and the amendment is being written. If you are interested go to and sign up.
