Will my voice be heard?

I just wrote the following to my two senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans from Arizona.

Please vote Yes on Senate Joint Resolution 19.

My voice is not being heard because I don’t have the billions of dollars that corporations do to buy your votes. Corporations are business entities. They don’t breathe, they don’t consume food. They are NOT HUMAN. I have a well-functioning intellect so don’t condescendingly throw back at me that corporations are people. The Citizens United ruling was a skillfully crafted underhanded deal to put power in the hands of the wealthy, leaving the rest of us to be screwed out of our rights in a democracy.

It’s time for you to show some backbone and understand we don’t want to live in a plutocracy. It’s time to kill Citizens United. Do you have the guts to do what’s right for the people?
