A Public Hearing was held Wednesday for HP 956, the resolution using language similar to the We The People Maine petition which calls for an Article V Constitutional convention to pass a US Constitutional amendment to revoke corporate personhood and regulate campaign spending.

Together we need to send a message to our elected officials that we want them to be on the right side of history by supporting HP956.
We need for them to know the founders crafted our Constitution to be a living document; it has been amended 27 times in our nationís history. Amendments gave us freedom of religion and the right to possess arms. It took amendments to abolish slavery and to give women the right to vote. The 18th amendment made prohibition the law of the land, and the 21st amendment repealed the 18th.
If ever there was a time for people to exercise this right, the time is now!
Our last best chance, our only chance, to prevent a total corporate take over of America is to amend the Constitution.
