Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
Our democracy is truly at a crossroads. Since Citizens United was passed, corporations have taken advantage of the ruling and are buying our government... literally. We MUST stop this or risk losing our present system of government.
Corporations must be made to go public with their political activities and contributions. If they are "people", they have to act like the rest of us. If they are not "people", they shouldn't be funding anything political!!!!

Thank you for considering my comment.
