Sign Petition

There is an ad on this site, Al Franken wanting you to sign a petition. Just wondered if anyone actually would sign any petition siding with Al Franken? If so, what were you thinking?

I saw that too... but no, I wouldn't consider even clicking on that ad!

Why?

Even though I'm a bit too cynical to think that these petitions ever really do much, I think Citizens United is a terrible idea and has (and will continue to) undercut the healthy functioning of our democracy. I'm always a bit dumbfounded by the support it receives from regular folk, as its function (or at least, its nasty side-effect) is to crowd out and in effect silence their voice. This isn't a left or right thing: this is just, to my mind, good ol' fashioned commonsense. Citizens United would have the founders rolling in their graves.
