> > WHY THIS BOOKLET?
> >
> > If we want to reverse global warming and have a national energy policy
> > based on conservation and renewable resources;
> >
> > If we want quality health care to be a right enjoyed by all rather than a
> > privilege only for those who can afford it;
> >
> > If we want communities, workers, and consumers to be protected from toxic
> > wastes and toxic products;
> >
> > If we think that putting nuclear weapons in space is insane and spending
> > nearly half of the federal government's entire discretionary budget on
> > military expenditures is obscene;
> >
> > If we think wealth shouldn't be overwhelmingly concentrated in a few
> > people's hands and poverty should and can be eliminated;
> >
> > If we think that the nature of huge corporations and the laws governing
> > them should be fundamentally transformed to ensure that they are totally
> > subordinate to democracy and serve the long-term interests of the people
> > and the planet;
> >
> > Then we must abolish the current bribery system and replace it with a
> > system of publicly financed campaigns that removes corporations as players
> > and doesn't discriminate against people without access to big money.
> >
> > Join the campaign to end political bribery and work towards achieving true
> > democracy and justice in America!
