US Day of Rage: One Citizen. One Dollar. One Vote.

go to original
September 8, 2012



Special influence corrupts our political parties, our elections, and the institutions of government.

Bought by hard and soft dollars, disloyal, incompetent, and wasteful special interests have usurped our nation’s civil and military power, spawning a host of threats to liberty and our national security.

We have had enough.

Legitimate government is born of the self-interest and will of the people, expressed by its citizens in free and fair elections. It does not spring from a tyranny of special interests, patronage, or a system or ideology that runs counter to the aims of life.

The institutions of government were designed to protect the principles of our democratic republic and to serve the will of citizens.

Corporations, even those owned by foreign shareholders, use money to act as the voices of millions, while individual citizens, the legitimate voters, are silenced and demoralized by the farce.

Free and fair elections inspire good citizenship and public service, because they engage the intelligence and genuine good will of the American people.

Free and fair elections produce the kind of stewardship our nation desperately needs, because they ensure that citizens can influence their destiny, and make genuine contributions to society.

Free and fair elections remedy the myriad ills and abuses of a corrupt and illegitimate government, which preys on the resources and spirits of citizens.

These abuses and ills are listed on the official US Day of Rage twitter hash tag #usdor.

For these reasons, we come together now to organize state and national peaceable assemblies of people to demand that integrity be restored to our elections.

We demand that corporate personhood be abolished.

We demand that Citizens United versus FEC, which deems money as speech and ruled that the First Amendment prohibited the government from restricting political expenditures by corporations and unions, be overturned.

We demand that state and federal election and campaign finance laws be reformed.

One citizen. One dollar. One vote.

  1. Only citizens should make campaign contributions.
  2. Campaign contributions by citizens to any political candidate or party should not exceed an amount that leads to a government capture by a powerful and wealthy factions to the detriment and disenfranchisement of other citizens.
