Rhana (right) with FLVCS member Alan Toy and another supporter
We are proud to say that Rhana Bazzini, who walks in Granny D’s footsteps http://ingrannydfootsteps.org/ , is well on the way to Tallahassee from Sarasota. She is now in Pasco County and walking to obtain a constitutional amendment to overturn the horrendous Supreme Court case, Citizens United, that granted corporations personhood.
We applaud and support Rhana’s fine effort. Months ago FLVCS adopted a resolution to overturn the case. As veterans, we know that the decision is a potential national security threat because it allows a flood of mostly unregulated money into the political process.
Anyone with a modicum of common sense should realize that individuals, foreign corporations, foreign companies, and even terrorist groups can set up a corporation and then spend unlimited funds to advance their agenda.
An article by Alex Leary in the Tampa Bay Times on July 18, 2014 sets out how unregulated money buys untold numbers of political ads. How many ads have you bought?
“Issue ads that do not expressly advocate for or against a candidate are not subject to FEC reporting as long as they are outside a certain window for an election — and they have been plentiful. And, groups that spent tens of millions in the presidential race were not required to flag Florida ad buys.”
Is it any wonder citizens feel alienated from the political process and their government when radical, activist judges overturn years of legal precedent by allowing corporations personhood with such cases as Citizens United?
Please contact Rae Clair at firstname.lastname@example.org (727) 421-8460 to walk with Rhana, or to provide logistical support. Soon, she will be passing through counties with smaller populations and will need support and company.
Only you can make sure that Rhana is not left by herself on some country road without support.
A Deadly Legacy in Iraq
Here’s more information showing exploitation of the troops and an abject failure of leadership by the brass on the battlefield. Gulf War illness redux. Will the ‘leaders’ at the Pentagon ever be held accountable?
