DON’T FORGET TO VOTE FOR ME AND CHANGE IN THE IOWA CAUCUS!–KAS

DON’T FORGET TO VOTE FOR ME AND CHANGE IN THE IOWA CAUCUS!–KAS

Dear Kevin,

2012 is going to be a doozy.

Thanks to a Supreme Court whose members won’t even abide by the code of conduct established for all other federal judges, we have corporations masquerading as people and pouring millions of dollars into the first presidential election since the disastrous Citizens United decision.

Meanwhile, a coordinated effort by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), and its corporate backers like the Koch brothers, is attempting to roll back voting rights and make it harder for eligible citizens – particularly students, the elderly, minorities and the working poor – to vote.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that we’re also seeing the growth of a true citizens’ movement that is ready and willing to take our democracy back. Whether we will be able to do it will depend on a commitment from each and every Common Cause member across the country.

Common Cause is leading the charge against the corporate takeover of democracy and working hard to maintain a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

And we’re counting on you to help us channel the anger and frustration that so many of us are feeling into meaningful reforms that stop the special interests in their tracks.

Let’s make 2012 the year that we get corporate profits out of politics, reverse Citizens United and take back our democracy.

On behalf of Robert Reich, our chairman, and the entire staff and board of Common Cause, thank you for all you do and best wishes for a happy holiday season.

Sincerely,

Bob Edgar
President, Common Cause
