Saving democracy

Some of us may or may not have been paying attention last year when the supreme court ruled that it's ok for corporations or unions to donate infinite amounts of cash to political campaigns. This basically means that Wal-Mart can spend a billion dollars influencing the next presidential election. Don't think that they wont do it. Now that it's legal it's going to happen. Fortunately there is one guy who's trying to put a stop to some of that nonsense. That man is Bernie Sanders,the independent senator out of Vermont. In his first ever proposed constitutional amendment,senator Sanders wants to reverse the narrow and very controversial decision made by the supreme court that grants corporations slightly more free speech rights than us normal people.
