Money corrupts politics

George Monbiot spells it out. Big money controls a great deal of our democratic process.

That is why we need block captains and email addresses. Last week we added four names to our email list. With an electronic network, we can cut down on phoning, TV, and mailing. These expensive techniques require extensive fundraising. Fundraising puts the voter in a passive role and makes the candidates vulnerable to big money control.

If you want to get the money out... get the people in. We will be canvassing again soon. Join us.
