CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

You’re dreaming, it’ll never happen…

Au contraire!  Freedom of speech, abolishment of slavery, women’s right to vote, and two-term limit on Presidencies are just a few of the 27 amendments to our constitution.  

  • Over 80% of Americans support an amendment.
  • Over 140 groups are working to GET THE MONEY OUT of politics
  • 16 states and hundreds of cities have called for a constitutional amendment.
  • The 113th Congress proposed 14 amendments
  • Over 150 members of Congress support a constitutional amendment.

42 states have already taken action towards the 28th Amendment! (including 4 that have called for a Article V Amendment Convention)

And here is a great article where President Obama talks about the need for an Amendment.MAPAmendmentFeb2015Small.jpg

TAKE ACTION

Free Speech For People supports two bills – please sign their petitions:

  • Rep. McGovern’s H.J.Res. 20 restores Congress’ and the states’ authority to limit campaign gifts and spending in all categories; it’s similar to Senator Udall’s bill, S.J.Res. 19, which has 20 U.S. Senate co-sponsors.
  • Rep. McGovern’s H.J.Res. 21 makes it clear that corporations do not have constitutional rights, as if they were people; it has bi-partisan support in the House from Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC), along with many other co-sponsors.  It’s identical to Senator Tester’s bill, S.J.Res. 18.
