I firmly believe that unlimited corporate funding of political organizations is the most dangerous threat to our democracy that has occurred. It enables a few people - corporate executives - to legally bend the will of the populace, while hiding behind a veil of anonymity. It threatens to convert our country from a democracy to an oligarchy.
It must be stopped to protect the ability of the voters to determine their own destiny - not a destiny desired by a few.
