On March 15, a teach-in was held in Burlington with David Cobb, lawyer and spokes person for Move To Amend. "Move To Amend" says Cobb, "is the multiracial, multiethnic coalition of over several hundred groups that have come together, representing several hundred thousand people who are calling for a constitutional amendment to abolish in its entirety the ridiculous judicial created legal doctrine that says a corporation is a person with inherent constitutional rights and the equally ridiculous court created doctrine that money equals speech; This therefore makes it virtual impossible for local, state, and federal governments to regulate campaign financing. These two legal doctrines put together are part of the linchpin for how the ruling elite has hijacked our country and the decision making process in this country."
