Never before in the history of the United States has our system been so openly corrupted by big money. Our democracy has been overtaken by monied interests who have bought favor with politicians, putting up huge roadblocks to any legislation that benefits average Americans. But all over the country people are fighting back and demanding change.
Now is the time to take our government back!
