Announcing the formation of METRO DENVER MOVE TO AMEND

Colorado Move to Amend (CoMTA), and the Reclaiming the American Dream Team (RADTeam), are pleased to announce the formation of Colorado’s newest Move to Amend affiliate – METRO DENVER MOVE TO AMEND (MDMTA)!

Working in conjunction with both CoMTA, and the national organization, MDMTA’s mission will be to organize, and grow, a truly grass-roots, people-powered, movement dedicated to amending the United States Constitution so that it clearly, and unequivocally states that the rights recognized under the Constitution belong to HUMAN BEINGS, only, and NOT to artificial entities, like corporations.

Large multi-national corporations have a strangle-hold on all branches of government, at all levels of government. They are, quite literally, squeezing the life out of our “small ‘d'” democracy. The time has come for a new generation of American patriots – in the truest, purest, sense of that word – to stand up and join the fight to return political power to where it belongs, the hands of “We, the People!”

MDMTA is going to be a part of that fight . . . and you can be, too . . . by attending the inaugural meeting of MDMTA on Thursday August 18, 2011, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, at The Byers Public Library, 675 Santa Fe, Denver, Colorado.

We hope to see you there!

RSVPs would be very helpful! Thanks.



Stephen A. Justino

Co-Chair, Colorado Move to Amend

    Progressives and teapartiers alike should surely be able to rally around this, since nothing threatens our freedoms and our ability to choose our own representatives as much as the increasing corporate stranglehold over our politics.

    So we amend the constitution to do away with the odious Citizens United and where does that leave us? Back to the Supreme Court when the inevitable somebody disputes the new law in court?

    I would really like more information on what you hope to achieve and how you hope to basically overrule a Supreme Court decision, particularly with the current make up of the court.

    First, the notion of a corporation as a person does at least as many good things (e.g. broadening the scope of liability even when doesn’t know who in particular was involved) as it does bad things.  The Chomskyesque notion of the corporation as psychopath really doesn’t pass muster in every day private law.

    Second, there are plenty of statutory ways to address a variety of issues presented by corporations before trying to amend the constitution.

    Third, the “corporate personhood” issue doesn’t really address the main issue animating the movement which is campaign finance.  As long as campaign finance limits for the very rich are limited, the ability or inability of corporations to play a role in politics is pretty much irrelevant.
