What Ails America According to the Three Top GOP Candidates

I came across a really good article by Paul Walden writing for The Week magazine regarding what the top three GOP candidates are saying about what is “Wrong with America”. Simply stated, I go along with Burnie Sanders and his observation that what is wrong with America is the take-over by the wrich. BUT, it is important for the progressive activist to know the truth about our adversaries on the right IF we are to get our voters out to vote in election day.

Please read the full article HERE or click the picture. I know that you will find it informative and that it puts the personalities in perspective very well.

Overturn Citizens United – Proposition 49 will be on California’s ballot!

Overturn Citizens United!  2016 is already off to a monumental start!

This morning, the California Supreme Court affirmed the right of California voters to be heard. The court just ruled that voters are allowed to vote on Proposition 49, the Overturn Citizens United Act!

Prop. 49 gives Californians the opportunity to instruct Congress to take action to stop the unlimited flood of spending in electoral campaigns by supporting a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.

In 2014’s November Election, California voters would have had this same opportunity. However, the state court ordered the proposition to be temporarily removed from the ballot because of a question about whether voter instructions are allowed.

But today, the California Supreme Court stood with We the People!

The court upheld our state’s long tradition ‎of giving people the power to instruct our congressional members‎ to pass important constitutional amendments – Prop. 49 would create the power to rein in the influence of money in politics.

As part of a coalition of organizations led by our partner citizen group, Money Out Voters In, California Common Cause advocated to make sure We the People have our voices heard.

Together, we can raise our voices for democracy in 2016!

Thanks for all that you do,
