If you believe political bribes are destroying our democracy, then step right up to the Amend-O-Matic Stamp Mobile and let your dollars spread the message. The same guy who brought you the most delicious, (not to mention organic and sustainable) ice cream in your grocer’s freezer has yet another brilliant idea.

With enough awareness this movement could help to pass an amendment to the constitution to take back our democracy from the corporations that use their money to puppeteer our politicians. 16 states have already voted for it and 150 members of congress support it. Keep the momentum going by purchasing a stamp(at cost) on [Read more...]
