    WTPW July 24, 2024

    As part of our ongoing We the People Wednesdays campaign, we are calling on all our supporters to join us in a vital effort to build political will for H.J.R. 54, the We the People Amendment - which seeks to firmly establish that only human beings, not corporations, are endowed with constitutional rights, and that money is not equivalent to free speech.

    In short, this amendment aims to reclaim our government from the undue influence of corporate power and big money in politics, ensuring that it represents the interests of the people!

    Every Wednesday, we invite you to take a few minutes to call your Representatives and urge them to support this crucial amendment. Your voice is powerful, and with our One Click Politics software, connecting with your congressperson is easier than ever. Simply input your zip code and phone number, and you'll be connected directly to your Representative’s office.

    Get started!

  • Nobody is coming to save us

    The political landscape is shifting rapidly. Just last month, the Presidential debate dominated headlines, but recent events have shifted our focus to more urgent issues. This email was originally about last month's Presidential debate in Atlanta, but so much has happened in our political circus since then that it seems irrelevant to the current conversations taking place. However, the intended message remains the same: this election and these recent Supreme Court decisions have laid bare to the average voter the sorry state our so-called democracy finds itself in.

    It has become clear that no part of our duopoly, whether Republican or Democrat, is coming to save us from the menace of political corruption and capitalist profiteering. And so, we must come to save ourselves.

  • The Corporate Political Conventions

    The Republican National Convention (RNC) concludes tonight. The Democratic National Convention (DNC) takes place next month.

    The four-day assemblies officially anoint their respective presidential and vice-presidential nominees, present speakers to inspire delegates and those watching to support their campaigns, provide delegates (including current elected officials) opportunities to connect with others in their state and beyond, and serve up plenty of convention hoopla.
