McCutcheon v. FEC: Amend the Constitution

The Supreme Court’s most recent ruling on McCutcheon v. FEC should be the last straw for “We The People” [“Ruling loosens reins on political donations,” Nation & World, April 2]. The five majority judges seem out of touch with how democracy should really work — one person, one vote.

It is time to amend the U.S. Constitution. The Move to Amend Coalition already has proposed an amendment that would build the legal foundation to solve the influence of big money and corporation on our elections. The proposed amendment would make clear that corporations are not people and have no constitutional rights, and that money is not free speech and campaign spending at all levels can be regulated.

Check it out. Get involved. Now is the time to take control of our election process, and make every vote count, not every dollar.

Peter Sandvig, Woodinville
