I'm not sure but I think non-cash contributions could be understood as
indirect contributions - at least that is how I interpret it.  I am not sure
how this petition would/could morph into a constitutional amendment either.
Mostly, I am just so gobsmacked still by the Supremes ruling that anything
that could counter it sounds good to me.

Wouldn't it just make more sense to limit how much a candidate can spend
then to regulate cash donations? People and corporations can donate air
time, balloons, buttons, buses, posters, airplanes, fuel, motel rooms, gold,
etc.,or whatever else it is that the candidates need instead of actual cash.

Dylan Ratigan is hoping to bring forward a petition new constitutional
amendment to ban all private money, including corporation and foreign
donors, from donating to all federal political positions.  The amendment is
non-partisan and reads as follows


"No person, corporation or business entity of any type, domestic or foreign,
shall be allowed to contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any
candidate for Federal office or to contribute money on behalf of or opposed
to any type of campaign for Federal office. Notwithstanding any other
provision of law, campaign contributions to candidates for Federal office
shall not constitute speech of any kind as guaranteed by the U.S.
Constitution or any amendment to the U. S. Constitution. Congress shall set
forth a federal holiday for the purposes of voting for candidates for
Federal office."


To sign the petition, or to learn more please go to


I am hopeful that the voice of thousands of citizens will help to bring this
petition forward.
