4. Anyone wanna bet what happens IF Citzens United is overturned?

Corporations will simply funnel money to employees and hire "consultants" that receive big time contracts and then surprisingly become concerned private citizens making political campaign ads in their spare time...

7. They are doing that now

 

You don't need to overturn Citizen United to get concerned citizens to help out corporations. They are called lobbyists. And the individual citizen is constrained from spending over $2500 on an individual campaign.

Citizen United also allows for foreign corporations to give to PACs, gives corporations the right to lie (freedom of speech you know) and allows CEOs to go against their stock holders and take directly from a corporation to fund political parties even if the stockholders vote against it.

6. Republicon's 'condescending' hypocrisy huh.

 

I signed "move to amend's petition" months ago so how much longer or how many more signatures will it take to get this amendment in place? Anyone know? Seems I've been waiting a long time for some movement on this.

8. You expect a Constitutional Amendment to pass in months?

 

First Congress has to vote on it with both houses reaching a 2/3 majority or 2/3rds of the states have to call for a constitutional convention. If Congress does approve of the amendment, then it goes to each state and you have to have 3/4 of the states vote in favor of it.

Here's a link about the whole process outlined in the Constitution: http://www.archives.gov/federal-register/constitution/

It's going to take a major event (like the civil war) or a country full of citizens who demand this change (like the repeal of prohibition and women's right to vote.) for an amendment to pass.
