The PowerPoint talk, Move to Amend, was given by Rosemarie Smallcombe at the Mariposa Democratic Club Meeting on February 11, 2012.  Move to Amend is an organized effort to amend the Constitutional to reverse the effects of the Citizens United v. F.E.C. Supreme Court Ruling that declared corporations are people and therefore have the right to freedom of speech, and a second court ruling that the money donated by corporations and rich individuals is speech and therefore cannot be restricted.  These rulings have drastically affected our political process and must be reversed by a Constitutional Amendment.

There is a video on Slide 3 has been incorporated into the web-based presentation, but if it does not play properly the video “F.E.C. vs. Citizens United” by Story of Stuff can be found here.
